NIPSCO’s winter moratorium ends today for customers enrolled in the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program.
NIPSCO and all Indiana electric and gas utilities do not disconnect service to LIHEAP customers who are behind on their bills during the winter heating season which begins Dec. 1 and ends March 15.
The colder temperatures in January and February caused higher heating bills. According to NIPSCO, bills were approximately $30 more in those two months.
Compared to last winter, about 15% more customers have received LIHEAP assistance and the average amount of assistance funds provided is up seven percent.
If you are in need of bill payment assistance, contact NIPSCO at 1-800-4NIPSCO (464-7726) Monday – Friday from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. CST to be connected with available assistance options.
