ROSEMOUNT, Minn. - Minnesota Energy Resources is encouraging customers who may be eligible for the State of Minnesota’s Energy Assistance Program, to apply as soon as possible. Senior customers who may be having difficulty paying higher winter bills are urged to see assistance as are non-senior customers who may have past due accounts and may have received a disconnection notice. Funds are very limited because this winter has been colder than average, increasing heating bills.

Household income eligibility guidelines were recently increased from 50 percent of the State Median Income to 60 percent, due to action taken by Governor Mark Dayton of Minnesota. This action opened eligibility to a greater number of households who may be struggling financially to pay their heating and electric bills this winter.

For more information, contact the local Energy Assistance Program provider in your county. For more information about the program, to locate your local program provider and/or obtain an application, call 1-800-657-3710 or go to the following link: http://mn.gov/commerce/energy/topics/financial/Energy-Assistance-Program/.
