▶️ Pacific Power offering 20-40% discounts to lower-income households

  |  

Pacific Power says it is offering a new discount program for customers with lower incomes starting this month.

Customers who get relief from the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) and the Oregon Energy Assistance Program (OEAP) will automatically have their bill cut by 20%. And that could increase to 40% cut if they meet certain requirements.

Those whose incomes are between 21% and 60% of the state median income will get the 20% discount.

Those with incomes between 0% and 20% of the state median income will get the 40% discount.
