Alliant Energy Gift to Help Customers Cover Energy Costs
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 04/10/2020
Alliant Energy is making a $1 million donation to its Hometown Care Energy Fund in Wisconsin to assist customers that need financial help to pay their bill.
The utility says it is aware of many customers facing financial hardship due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
"We know that many customers need help paying their bill or may need additional help due to the pandemic," said Linda Mattes, a customer operations vice president at Alliant Energy. "We are coming together with customers, employees, retirees and
shareowners to help our neighbors."
The Hometown Care Energy Fund is supported annually with funds from Alliant Energy share owners, as well as voluntary contributions from employees, retirees and customers.
The company partners with nonprofit organizations in Wisconsin to distribute the funds. Customers can review income eligibility requirements and apply for funding by contacting the County Energy Assistance office.
