Options To Avoid Power Cut Off

WE Energies is sending notices to customers who are behind on payments that their winter moratorium is ending. That means if you are missing payments, your power could be shut off.

But Milwaukee County Department of Health And Human Services is working with partner agencies across metro area to hand out nearly $1.3 million to those who qualify for Energy Assistance prior to the moratorium ending on April 15.

Those who qualify will receive a $300 incentive to help with their bills. Customers will have to maintain a monthly payment plan with WE energies.

To qualify, customers must have made a minimum of two separate monthly payments since September 1 of last year and must have a current 2016 energy application on file, and there is still time to fill one out.

Those who wish to apply, can schedule an appointment by calling 414-270-4653 or click here.

You can also walk into any of the locations set up to help. Those include:

  • Community Advocates – 4906 W Fond du Lac Avenue, Milwaukee
  • UMOS – 2701 S. Chase Avenue, Milwaukee
  • Community Advocates – 728 N James Lovell Street, Milwaukee
  • West Allis – 6761 W Greenfield Avenue, Milwaukee

All locations are open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 7:30 pm. And on Saturday’s from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm.
