DREMC's Project HELP program is an emergency residential energy assistance program overseen by local charity organizations in seven counties served by Duck River Electric and sponsored by generous donations from DREMC members and employees.

To apply for electric bill assistance through Project HELP, visit the charity organization in the county where you live. Complete the application process and provide any required identification and your current DREMC bill, including the account number.

Project HELP assistance is sent directly to DREMC to pay a portion of the qualifying applicant’s bill. Any balance remaining is the member’s responsibility.

Project HELP accepts monthly and one-time donations to assist those facing financial hardships and unable to pay their electric bills.



Duck River Electric Membership Corporation, an electric cooperative, was democratically founded in 1936 by a group of community-focused citizens with the goal of providing central station electric power to rural areas that previously were unserved. Investor-owned utilities felt the population density was too sparse and would not be profitable for them to bring electricity to rural areas. However, this was the mission of electric cooperatives, like DREMC, and so electrification began thanks to the many who supported the cooperative movement in the 1930s and 1940s. Today, as in those early years, DREMC is owned by the members it serves. In addition, the southern portion of Middle Tennessee, which DREMC serves, has grown so much over the years that the cooperative is now ranked fourth-largest electric cooperative by membership in the state by Tennessee.

DREMC delivers safe, reliable electric service at the lowest possible cost to the members it serves. And your DREMC membership means you are an owner of the cooperative and have a voice in its mission. We are honored to serve our members – the people who call Middle Tennessee their home.
