Energy Assistance

Project Help

Project Help provides temporary energy assistance to elderly, disabled and low-income customers who cannot afford to pay their electric bill. The funds are administered by NeedLink Nashville (formerly Big Brothers of Nashville).

There are now two easy ways to support Project Help. 

  • Simply add $1 or more to your monthly NES bill by completing the Project Help Donation Form or by calling NES Customer Relations at 615-736-6900. One-hundred percent of the contributions go directly to assist individuals with their electric bills.
  • Use your Kroger Plus Card when you shop for groceries. Learn how to enroll in the Kroger Community Rewards program
