Save Money on Your Wisconsin Power Bills!

Save money on your Wisconsin power bill! The electric bill can be a budget-buster when you’re 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 Wisconsin 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. Almost all states offer FREE weatherization assistance and financial aid to low income homeowners and renters!
