WeEnergies Sending Out Disconnection Notices

WeEnergies will begin sending disconnection notices on Monday for those who have not paid their energy bills.

“Starting on March 27, We Energies will begin to send disconnection notices for those behind in bill payments,” said DHHS Director Héctor Colón. “For the third consecutive year, we are able to provide additional funding to help our residents in need of some extra support. Customers who are setting up payment plans with We Energies through the end of this month can benefit from proactive crisis assistance, a $300 incentive towards establishing a payment plan.”

Milwaukee County is offering help for eligible households that set up a payment plan through the Energy Assistance program, the County will provide funding to cover the fee to establish the payment plan ($300).

If people do not pay their bills or set up a payment plan, their utilities will be disconnected on April 15.

Limited crisis funds are available to assist throughout the summer months.

In order to qualify for proactive crisis assistance, customers must have made a minimum of two separate monthly payments since September 1, 2016 and must have a current 2016-17 energy application.

This offer will not be available to oil, propane or heat-included customers.
