Power customers may apply for energy assistance


MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin's power companies say individuals can now apply for energy assistance through state funding programs.

It's called the Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP).

It gives money to moderate to low income families to pay a portion of their gas or electric bills.

To obtain energy assistance, qualified Wisconsin residents can apply to their local county energy assistance agency for WHEAP funds anytime between now and May 15, 2010, or until funds are exhausted. Applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible by calling 1-866-432-8947 to locate the nearest county agency that provides energy assistance funds or by visiting http://www.homeenergyplus.wi.gov.
