Hi Casey. With smaller utility companies, it may be worth calling them and asking if there are any energy assistance programs that they work with.

I live in Bogalusa, La. I have Entergy louisiana. My bill is $599.90 I can't afford to pay it. I live off of SSI at $914 monthly. I'm 65 yrs old, I'm a stage 4 breast cancer patient. I take 2 oral chemotherapy pills daily. Out of the $914 I receive I have rent, car ins, utilities, phone bill, etc. I have nothing left. As soon as I get my money it's gone. Entergy wasn't on the list for help. Is there anyway you can help.
