MILWAUKEE - WE Energies is launching a
campaign urging its customers who are behind on their
bills to pay up before the end of the winter heating
moratorium on Apr. 16 or face disconnection.
The company, which serves over 1.1
million electric customers across Wisconsin and Michigan
and provides 1.1 million in Wisconsin with natural gas,
is launching its "Stay Connected" campaign early this
year due to the winter's extreme weather.
Many WE Energies consumers have seen
their heating bills rise sharply this year due to a
spike in natural gas usage.
The program uses phone calls, bill
inserts and other messaging to alert customers who have
fallen behind on their payments.
WE Energies also warns that scammers
have been known to prey on customers at this time of
year, and that anyone receiving suspicious phone calls
or emails should immediately contact the company.
