ENERGY COSTS-ASSISTANCE
Eligible Ohioans can get help managing their energy costs through a payment assistance plan

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, February 2, 2014 11:36 AM EST
COLUMBUS, Ohio


State officials remind eligible Ohioans that they can get help managing energy costs this winter through a payment assistance program.

The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio says the Percentage of Income Payment Plan Plus allows eligible Ohioans to pay utility bills based on a percentage of household income.

Customers must receive their primary or secondary heat source from a company regulated by the utilities commission and have a total household income at or below 150 percent of the federal poverty level to qualify.

Eligible Ohioans who heat with gas pay 6 percent of their monthly household income to their gas company and 6 percent to their electric company. Those heating with electricity pay 10 percent of their monthly household income to their electric company.
