Energy assistance available for winter gas bills

UIL Holdings Corp. reminds its natural gas heating customers who may have trouble paying winter heating bills that now is the time to apply for energy assistance.
UIL gas operating companies in Connecticut include The Southern Connecticut Gas Co. (SCG), which serves the greater New Haven-Bridgeport region; and Connecticut Natural Gas (CNG), which serves the greater Hartford-New Britain area and Greenwich.
SCG/CNG offers a Matching Payment Program (MPP) designed to help heating customers keep up with their gas bill payments. MPP includes energy assistance and a utility match in addition to a customer payment. An outstanding gas bill can be reduced substantially by participating in the plan. Applying is easy and confidential, and approval is quick. The Matching Payment Plan is available only to home heating customers of SCG or CNG.
Natural gas customers who received energy assistance during the 2011-12 heating season automatically are enrolled for the current heating season.
To be eligible for the MPP, gas heating customers of SCG/CNG must contact their local community action agency to first apply for and receive an energy assistance commitment.
Customers of SCG and CNG who exceed energy assistance guidelines but still need help should contact Operation Fuel (dial 211).
