Home Energy Assistance Program

Their Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) helps qualified homeowners and renters pay for heating costs. You can also qualify for energy-related repairs if you are eligible for HEAP.

The amount of help you may receive from HEAP is based on your household size, income, and energy costs. Contact your local CAA to find out if you qualify today!

Budget Billing

Budget billing allows you to pay a fixed amount each month based on your energy usage history. Many customers find it easier to budget for a regular bill amount than to accommodate the cost fluctuations that go with higher energy usage periods. Budget Billing is available year round and will begin with the next bill following sign-up.
