What is the Pay it Forward Programme?
Our Pay it Forward Programme is a joint initiative between Pulse Energy and our customers. The Programme is designed to help some of our customers who are having trouble paying for their power bill at a certain point in time.
The fund is dependent on contributions made by our customers as well as our business. To kick start the fund, Pulse Energy have committed to contributing $150,000 over the next year. This will be allocated to our customers who are struggling to pay their bills.
