SMECO, its Board of Directors, and employees, thank all of our customer-members who have made generous contributions to Project Match. As of January 3, our friends and neighbors have given $9,500, twice as much as the amount given this time last year.
Project Match helps local needy families who simply cant afford to heat their homes. Our customer-members can contribute to this worthy cause by including a separate check, made out to Project Match, along with their electric bill payments. SMECO will match donations through March up to a total of $25,000. Donations are forwarded to the Tri-County Fuel Fund, which is administered by the Southern Maryland Tri-County Community Action Committee.
This winter, SMECO is asking all Southern Marylanders to conserve and contribute. By conserving energy, residents can keep heating bills down. SMECO includes energy-saving tips in electric bills and on our Web site at www.smeco.coop. We encourage our customer-members to use these helpful measures. Customers can also attend seminars to learn how they can save energy to save money.
SMECO is a cooperative owned by its customers. By offering programs, educating customers, and keeping electric rates as low as possible, we are working together with the Southern Maryland community to foster an effective response to the rising cost of heating.
