Help for heating is available to low-income consumers

March 20, 2012

By Staff

The state utility regulator reminds residents about heating help available through the agency and the federal government.

The federal Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program and utility company low-income assistance programs provide funding to qualifying households for assistance to pay for heating.

Residents can apply for heating assistance directly through energy companies. The utility in the Issaquah area, Puget Sound Energy, offers low-income assistance at http://pse.com/accountsandservices/YourBill/Pages/Low-Income-Assistance.aspx.

Call the state Utility and Transportation Commission’s Consumer Protection Help Line at 1-888-333-9882 toll free, or go to www.utc.wa.gov/consumers/energy/Pages/default.aspx, to locate assistance agencies, or to get help to resolve a billing dispute, disconnect notice or service complaint.
