PGE, NW Natural both offer aid for families struggling in winter

With a new wave of cold weather upon us, a less-than-robust economy and higher energy prices than we've seen in recent years, many Oregonians are wondering how they'll be able to afford to keep their homes warm until spring finally arrives.


Fortunately, whether you heat your home with electricity or natural gas, options exist to help you make ends meet during the remainder of the long winter. Both Portland General Electric and NW Natural have programs in place to assist low-income residents in paying their heating bills.


PGE, the electric utility that services most of greater Portland and several outlying communities, has an ongoing partnership with Oregon HEAT, a nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance to lower-income households during the winter months. Oregon HEAT, in turn, partners with an assortment of community service agencies to distribute its funds.
