With the temperatures dropping and prices to heat and energize our homes rising, this can mean a strain on an already limited budget. Thankfully, there is help available.
If you are struggling to pay for electric, water, or other utilities, you can apply for assistance through Operation Fuel. You can also contact your utility agencies about payment plans and ask about getting coded for Hardship or Winter Protection to protect against winter shutoffs. Please go to the website on the attached flyer for more specific details and information.
In addition to Operation Fuel, there are other resources available to help reduce the costs of your energy usage, including:
- Visiting com, allows residents to compare electric rates from third-party suppliers and see eligibility for certain rebates;
- Apply for the Connecticut Energy Assistance Program;
- Apply for energy assistance through the UniteCTprogram
As always, please feel free to reach out to me at the Capitol at 800-842-8267 or email me at Joseph.Gresko@cga.ct.gov.
