WI Consumers Urged to Seek Energy Assistance Before Heating Moratorium

The Public
Service Commission of Wisconsin is urging people who are currently disconnected
from their utilities to make arrangements to get their service restored before
winter weather arrives. 

State law
prohibits utilities from disconnecting heat-providing services during the
Winter Heating Moratorium from November 1st to April 15th.
However, consumers that are currently disconnected need to pay outstanding
bills in order to have service restored. People without utility service are
encouraged to contact their utility provider to establish a payment plan and arrange
for re-connection.

Energy assistance
is also available through the Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program to households
with a gross income level at or below 60 percent of the median gross household
income in Wisconsin. The assistance program is part of Wisconsin’s Home Energy
Plus program, which provides assistance with emergency energy needs, furnace
repairs and other services for low-income households.
