Energy plays a vital role in our lives, but unfortunately, not everyone can afford to pay for it. When temperatures start to drop, we encourage our income-qualified customers to apply for energy assistance.
Energy Assistance Program
For some customers, including seniors on fixed incomes, energy expenses can be a financial burden. In fact, there are those right here in our community who cannot afford the energy to meet their basic needs.
For those who cannot afford such an expense, this can lead to difficult decisions about how to allocate their limited resources. Our local Energy Assistance Program is designed to help income-qualifying households cover their energy costs and reduce the financial burden that they face.
If you believe you or someone you know may qualify, we encourage you to establish your income eligibility through the Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP),
To begin the energy assistance application process, call Dodge County Energy Services Inc. at 1-800-506-5596 (toll free).
Our Energy Assistance Program is funded with the portion of Commitment to Community dollars specifically set aside for income-qualifying individuals and families.
Home Weatherization Program
Home Weatherization makes energy-saving measures available to those households faced with limited financial resources and a challenging energy burden. The program funds specific improvements in the home or rental unit that will reduce energy consumption and lower a qualifying household’s energy bills.
Participants will save money over the long-term and benefit from the improvements to the safety and comfort of their home. In addition, Home Weatherization provides benefits to the community, improving housing stock and neighborhood conditions. Energy conservation is good for the environment and the local economy.
If you believe you or someone you know may qualify, the first step is to establish your income eligibility through the Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP).
