Ohio energy and electric bills

Post by Ridley » Thu Nov 14, 2013 12:05 pm

Hi,
I am trying to find out how I can get help with my electric bill in Ohio. I was fired from my job last December, no unemployment, no job, and do not get social security check until next month. Which will be only $830.00. I am 62 years old and live alone.
Any forms you could send me to fill out to get help would so much be appreciated.

Hi
I am emailing to see about getting information on assistance with my utility bills. I lost my job two months ago and the bills are getting higher and higher. I am in fear of a shut off with my Water Company - The Department of Public Utilities in Toledo, OH and with my electric company - Toledo Edison in Toledo, OH
Also I am looking for possible assistance with getting a new heating unit for my home. At the end of last winter my wall furnace went out. I do not have any form of heat right now for the upcoming winter.
I am in need of help and I would greatly appreciate any help you might be able to direct me too.

It start in end of July I had to get supplies and shoes clothes for my kids. Can you please help me if not I don’t know what to do. Thank-You. I have a family of 5. My rent is 840.00 per month. I am behind but I have something but not enough to stop the eviction.

I live in Youngstown Ohio. I recently started researching on organizations to help me with my utility bills. My electric, water, and gas bills are outrageous every month. We get a disconnection for all utilities every month. Its out of control and we cant keep up. Our electric was due to be disconnected as of yesterday Monday.

I have 5 young children and cannot be dealing with these disconnection notices and shutoffs every month. Last month our electric got turned off and I was scrambling all over the place trying to get a medical release and our Doctor wouldn’t even look at it. These bills are impossible to keep up with. I am on Medicaid and food stamps, and cant imagine how I can manage all of this. These companies making it utterly impossible to keep up. My water bill is $500 and we have paid 140 $ on it a week ago, and last month $100. Its burying me. Its just too much. Please if you could give me places to turn of people who can actually help me I would so greatly appreciate it. Thank you so very much,

I have not been able to work for almost 2 years. My doctors have filled our disability papers but they are still pending. The only assistance I currently receive is $200 in food stamps. I have zero income and have had zero income for well over a year. I have exhausted all savings and my family cannot help me with my bills anymore, I am seeking assistance for my water and gas & electric bill. They are both about to be cut off. I live in Cincinnati Ohio. Anything you can send me for financial assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

I have just recently moved to Ohio and I have an old electric bill of $267.87 but it is owed to PIPP before I can get the electric in my name. I do have a 6 year old daughter that lives with me and I really need to get the past due amount paid off. Right now it's in my friends name but she moved out a month ago and needs me to get the bill in my name if there is anyway to get it paid off please let me know.

To whom it may concern,
I live in Franklin County Ohio and I received the letter from Columbia Gas said that my PIPP Plus payment is $115 per month (start date: April, 2014). However, my total income is $2100 per month and I am a single mom with 2 kids. Sometime, if the kid has a doctor appointment or is sick, my income would lower than $2100 per month. Every month after paying all expense, I only have 0 balance on my bank account.
Now, I have 11 thousand dollars debt in my 2 credit card (paying food, attorney fee $8000) Please can you help me to lower my PIPP PLUS payment or any way to fix this situation. If you have any question, please feel free to contact me.

The reason they created PIPP in Ohio was to help customers both keep their power and reconnect it. So that is the goal. If you can't pay for it, then that defeats the purpose of the PIPP Plan. No charity will help as you are already getting it from the PIPP. Anyhow, explore the list of energy programs for your state, and more Ohio energy bill assistance.

Hello, I live in Columbus Ohio. I pulled up this website as I was looking for a way to get some help with my bills before they are shut off. I have never done this before and don't know much about how to do i.e. really need someone to help me and I don't know who to turn to. I don't know if you need my number but if you can possibly help me or at least guide me in the right direction it would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi, I have a question and I want to know how can my friend help pay her electric bill because she has nothing yet and I'm really concerned about her. She has trouble breathing and she needs her machine on. Right now it’s off because she has no electric, so how can you guys help her?
She lives in Cleveland Ohio. She doesn't have any kids. She has animals, cats, dog and 2 birds. She cares for her pets a lot. I don't want to see her go without. I don't want nothing happening to her or her pets. Is there a way any kind of way to help her?
