Are you having trouble paying your bill? Winter reconnect season is open

Submitted by sshockley on

Fall is officially here, and temperatures are falling just like the beautiful leaves. With colder temperatures, homes are chilly, prompting the use of space heaters and furnaces to keep warm. Utilizing these appliances may result in increased consumption of electricity.

Beginning November 1 and running through March 31, 2024, assistance is available for income-eligible residents. The federally funded Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) is available to help offset the cost with a one-time benefit of up to $800 applied directly to your utility bill.
