Income Qualified Programs

Energy Assistance

For some customers, including seniors on fixed incomes, energy expenses can be a financial burden. In fact, there are people 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 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 learn more about the WHEAP application process, customers in Winnebago County or Calumet County should contact Energy Services Inc. at 920-729-1433 or 800-506-5596.  If approved for WHEAP, you will receive more information about your eligibility for our Energy Assistance Program at that time. 

Our Energy Assistance Program is funded with the portion of Public Benefits dollars specifically set aside for income-qualifying individuals and families. 

You can also contact one of the agencies listed below for further assistance on agencies and programs that may provide financial assistance or financial counseling.

Home Weatherization

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. 

Our Home Weatherization Program is funded with the portion of Public Benefits dollars specifically set aside for income-qualifying individuals and families. It is administered in conjunction with the City of Menasha's Community Development Department. Interested customers should call Mary Bach with Community Housing Coordinators at 920-470-3333.
