Energy Assistance

2021 winter preparednessThis situation may be particularly hard on the elderly and those with fixed or low incomes. It is important that consumers are made aware of steps they can take, and the programs they can participate in, to reduce their energy use and help control energy bills this winter.

The New York State Department of Public Service’s annual winter outreach and education campaign is intended to help consumers manage their energy bills while staying warm and safe during the cold weather months. Consumers are encouraged to take simple, low-cost energy savings measures to reduce energy use and to consider bill payment options and financial assistance programs to help manage their winter heating costs.

There is a webpage dedicated to winter preparedness: www.dps.ny.gov/winter.

This page has information for consumers about controlling heating costs, including links to state and utility financial assistance programs, consumer protections, energy efficiency and winter safety.
