How to Save Money on Your Toledo Edison Bill

(Last Updated On: May 29, 2018)

Ready to save some money on your Toledo Edison bill? If you’re a Toledo Edison customer, you’ll be glad to know that this FirstEnergy provider offers several helpful programs for low income clients.

Percentage of Income Payment Plan Plus (PIPP Plus)

Customers with an income at or below 150% of the Federal Poverty Level can participate in the program. Check the chart below to see if you qualify!

FPL

Customers who enroll in this program pay six percent of their income each month toward the power bill, regardless of their actual use. The minimum allowable payment under this program is $10 per month.

When you are on this program, you pay less than what you owe. When your income increases, you will need to pay the outstanding balance. Thankfully, Toledo Edison has another program that helps with that also.

Toledo Edison’s other cost-saving programs include:

  • Community Connections Program provides in-home energy assessments and cost-saving improvements to your home. During the visit, an evaluator will help you identify ways you can save money on your energy bill and may assist with repairs such as sealing air leaks, adding insulation, appliance testing (and possible replacement), water heater inspection, faucet aerators and more.  You will need to prove your income is 200% of FPL or less (see chart). Contact one of the agencies listed here for an application.
  • Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP). You could receive a federal grant to help pay your winter heating bills! Call 1-800-633-4766 for more information about Ohio HEAP.
  • Ohio Fuel Fund Grant Program provides funds to help customers pay their bills, maintain their service or establish new services. Grant applicants must prove household income and meet other requirements.
  • Military Deferred Payment Program helps families postpone their payments when a family member is called to active duty. You may choose to delay any portion of the bill. Upon homecoming, however, payment arrangements will be made for the outstanding balance.

Emergency Help for Toledo Edison Customers

Do you need help with an emergency payment? You may be able to receive assistance from Neighbors Helping Neighbors. This program is administered by the Salvation Army, which can be reached at 419-241-3549.

If you are over age 60 and receiving social security, you may also qualify for an extended due date to help you avoid falling behind on payments.Customers with severe health challenges can delay the termination of their service if they have a signed letter from their medical provider stating that a termination of service could be dangerous. This letter will only delay shut-off by 30 days, during which time the past due balance must be paid to avoid the next scheduled disconnection.
