As the temperature drops most families will start using furnaces and heaters that haven’t been used in months. To make sure you’re heating your home safely, review our simple tips to stay warm this season.
Cold weather can make it tough for some families to stay warm, so SMUD offers programs to help low-income customers save on their electric bills. Eligible customers can take advantage of SMUD’s Energy Assistance Program Rate (EAPR), a discount rate that can save customers money on a portion of their bill. EAPR customers may also be eligible for our residential weatherization program. Qualified customers can, at no cost to them, have their homes and apartments weatherized to improve energy efficiency and keep down energy costs. Customers needing help with their bills can also apply for our EnergyHelp program.
SMUD is not shutting off power, nor charging late fees during this time. For more information on our assistance programs, visit smud.org/HereToHelp.
Additional information on safe home heating and SMUD’s EAPR program are available at smud.org/Safety or by calling 888-742-7683.
