Four District agencies charged with serving DC utility consumers are behind the #Here2HelpDC campaign.

About the campaign

In the wake of COVID-19, four District agencies charged with serving DC utility consumers joined forces to create #Here2HelpDC, a public awareness campaign to inform District residents and businesses about energy and money-saving initiatives that can help minimize negative financial impacts of the pandemic.

#Here2HelpDC is a combined initiative of the District Department of Energy & Environment, the Public Service Commission of the District of Columbia, the DC Sustainable Energy Utility and the Office of the People’s Counsel for the District of Columbia.
