    My brother receives a disability pension and he is eligible for a discount.

    Yes, depending on which state you are in. Phone your electricity provider and advise them you have a pension card, they will take down the number and apply the discount - usually around $1 per day.

    You also might be eligible for a government utility grant, it's $500 per year. You can get info thru your provider
