Alliant Energy Encouraging Sign-Ups For Home Assistance Program

(Wisconsin) If you think you’re going to have trouble paying for your home’s heat this winter, it’s time to reach out for help. The Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program offers up one-time assistance payments to qualifying households. Alliant Energy spokeswoman Annemarie Newman says they’d much rather work with customers than have to threaten disconnection in the spring. Newman says even if it’s a cold winter and customers are struggling, she encourages them to contact Alliant, make arrangements and keep up with payments as best they can. You can apply for the program online at your local social services office or online at:
