If you’re a veteran, active military, Guard and Reserve member, or a military spouse, you’re eligible for a military discount on electricity.
As a member of the US military, you deserve special treatment for your service. The last thing you need is high electric bills due to an overpriced electricity plan.
If you live in a state with deregulated electricity, you can choose your electricity supplier. And you can find a plan that works for your budget and lifestyle. This can save you real money each month.
Here’s how to find an electricity plan with special military discounts for active duty, military reserves, veteran, or military-dependent spouses. It’s one more way to get the lowest electric bill possible each month.
Special Military Discount for Active Duty Military
Make your housing allowance go that much further by researching electricity providers. You can find a discounted electricity rate for active duty members of the military. You may have to prove your duty status through an on-line verification process. However, the rates can be significantly lower than those for civilians in the same neighborhood.
If your family member is deployed overseas? Your family can still get the same low military discount rate. Residency remains in the home and the discount rate still applies.
Military Discounts for Veterans and Members of the Guard and Reserves
Honorably discharged veterans of all branches of the service are also eligible for discounts or specially-priced electricity plans. Veterans and members of the Guard and Reserves get the same rates as active military.
Providers offering special rate plans for veterans require on-line verification of service. You may need to provide your military ID, discharge date (if applicable) and service branch for validation. The verification process is done by a 3rd party service and is safe and secure.
