PLAINFIELD, Ind. — Duke Energy Indiana is making more than $330,000 in financial assistance available to Hoosier customers who are struggling to pay their power bills this winter.
Qualifying Duke Energy customers can receive up to a $300 credit annually on their account.
Due to high demand, customers should first check with their local community action agency to make sure there is still money available locally. You can find a list of service providers by county online.
The funds come from Duke Energy contributions and customer and employee donations. The money is distributed in partnership with the Indiana Community Action Association and the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority’s Energy Assistance Program.
“As the temperatures drop, we are thankful to partner with Duke Energy to provide financial relief to Hoosiers who may be experiencing economic hardship,” said Ed Gerardot, executive director of the Indiana Community Action Association. “We encourage families who are worried about keeping the lights on this winter to reach out for help to manage their bills and maintain service.”
The financial assistance is made possible through Duke Energy’s Share the Light Fund. Over the last five years, Duke Energy has contributed more than $3.5 million in energy assistance funds to its Indiana customers.
Customers experiencing financial hardship may qualify for help with their energy bills. More information is available at the Duke Energy website.
