The Energy Share website has more information, including this overview:
Energy Share was established by a group of concerned people representing utility companies and nonprofit agencies. They recognized the need to help people who don’t necessarily qualify for government programs but still need a “hand up” at times. Because Energy Share is a private non-profit organization, and not a government program, we have some flexibility outside of the established federal poverty guidelines with who we can help. A big difference between Energy Share and the federally-funded energy assistance program (LIEAP) is that every Energy Share application and situation presented within those applications is considered individually. We consider income, but help people based on the need, the individual situation, and level of emergency.
