Since 1992, Beauregard Electric customers have had the opportunity to round-up their electric bill donating that extra change to serve the needs of the area communities. The money has been distributed among the area parishes through each local community action agency to assist needy families. Click here for more information.
The BECi Scholarship Program began in 1993. The scholarship funds are not taken from normal operating funds, but from two BECi programs:
BECi SHARE PROGRAM - The Share Program allocates 50 percent to the area parish agencies to be used for energy assistance and 50 percent to the BECi Scholarship Fund.
UNCLAIMED CHECKS Through legislative changes made in 1993, unclaimed checks were allowed to remain in the scholarship funds to assist students within BECi service area rather than forwarding the monies to the state's general treasury fund.
