Need Help with Utilities?

Always contact your utility company early to ask if you can set up a payment program to catch up your bill or deposits.

Most are only available BEFORE your utilities are shut off. Some examples of acceptable reasons: loss of job or other income, car repair or medical expenses.

SENIORS should call Golden Umbrella's Power to Seniors program 223-6034

PG&E and Shasta Lake customers call Salvation Army 222-2207 for help up to $200

HEAP Program, call SHIPP 378-6900 -- if funding is available and you qualify, you can get a check for one month's amount sent to your utility company. It takes 60 to 90 days to receive. They go by a point system to decide who they will help.

For shut-off prevention or if your utilities have been shut off, call Self Help Home Energy Project SHIPP's Fast Track Program 378-6900 -- if funding available. SHIPP goes by a point system to decide who they will help.

MEDICAL SITUATIONS: If you are a PG&E customer and you must have your utilities on for medical reasons but you have a shut-off notice or they are already shut off, AND if you can get your doctor to write you a note regarding your medical condition and the need to have your utilities on --- call the Public Utilities Commission 1-800-649-7570.
