Save money on your Oregon power bill!

Save money on your Oregon power bill!

Stop spending so much on your Oregon power bill! The electric bill can be a major budget-buster when you are surviving on a low income. Fortunately, your power company can usually help. There are several unknown or little-advertised programs that power companies may offer that can help lower the cost of your power bill.

Most power companies offer a budget billing plan, which averages the annual cost of electricity in a home and bills the customer in 12 even installments. This can help low-income customers maintain a budget and avert payment problems, especially during the more expensive winter months.

Just click the appropriate link below to find out what discounts, rebates and other money-saving programs are offered by YOUR local utility company!

Hey Lisa. That's a great question. We lost our entire writing team about 18 months ago and it was a major setback for our research list. I am doing the best I can but our research list is thousands of articles long at this point and I'm the only one writing consistently. It's a bit overwhelming. I will bump this to the top of the list and try to get it done asap. So sorry for the delay! -Nicole
