Because of high energy bills from December, Xcel Energy is stepping in to offer customers a payment plan to make the higher bills easier to pay.
The company is offering pay arrangements or asking people to apply for energy assistance, if they fear they may fall behind on payments.
The energy assistance programs can help cut down with the cost of monthly expences, and allow customers to use the money where they see is most important.
If you need help with energy assistance, Xcel is asking you speak to a service representative by phone.
The automated phone system allows arrangement choices which will allow customers to pay their balance over time.
Most of the plans are from three to six months, but can be customized to individual circumstances.
Contact Xcel Energy at 800- 895-4999 with any questions you may have about the energy assistance program.
