Heating Assistance Available to Dominion Customers
Here's how to get help with your heating bills this winter.
With Arlington expecting a dusting of snow Tuesday night and temperatures in the 30s, heating bills are high for area residents.
Dominion Virginia Power is reminding customers that assistance is available for high heating bills this winter through the utility company’s Energy Share grants.
Eligible customers may get a one-time payout of up to $600 to offset heating costs this winter. More than 12,000 customers received assistance in 2012.
To quality, customers must live in Dominion’s service area and meeting one of these criteria:
- have a disconnection notice or be in danger of losing their primary heating source;
- meet income-based eligibility requirements as determined by screening agencies;
- be unemployed, or demonstrate a personal or family crisis.
Customers can call Dominion's customer service center at 1-866-DOM-HELP (1-866-366-4357) for more information about the assistance program. Or, visit www.dom.com/about/community/heating-and-cooling-assistance.jsp.
To donate to Energy Share, you may fill out the relevant information on your next heating bill or send a separate check for any amount with your next Dominion bill payment. Contribution checks are included with your February bill.
