Apply Today for PSREC’s Winter Rate Assistance Program

Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative (PSREC) is committed to helping customers who may need a little extra help when it comes to their utility bills. The goal is to ensure no one goes without the power they need.

PSREC’s Winter Rate Assistance Program (WRAP) helps income-qualified customers who may have difficulty paying their utility bills. WRAP helps with energy used November through April, when bills tend to be higher than normal. Members will receive a discounted rate for energy usage (a savings of up to $57 per month maximum).

The application process for WRAP relatively simple and can be completed in just a few minutes. The WRAP application and income guidelines are at Mail completed application and supporting documents to our Portola office at 73233 State Route 70 Portola, CA 96122.

If you or someone you know qualifies for WRAP, please contact the PSREC office at (530) 832-4261. In addition to the PSREC website, applications are available at the PSREC office or, if you like, you can request an application be mailed to you.

Once a completed application is received by PSREC staff, the information is reviewed, and the application is either accepted or denied and sent back to the applicant. If the application is rejected due to missing or incomplete information, it may be resubmitted after corrections are made. If your application is accepted, you will not receive an acceptance letter. You are welcome to give us a call to confirm, or look for the credit applied to your next bill.
