For families that qualify, SCG will match every dollar paid by you or on your behalf (up to a zero balance) if you successfully complete the plan. So, you pay a portion, energy assistance pays a portion and we pay a portion. Bottom line: you may have to pay for only about one-third of your gas heating expense if you qualify. Eligibility is based on income and assets. Call us at 800.659.8299 or InfoLine at 2-1-1 to learn more.
COVID-19 Payment Program
SCG is currently operating under the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority’s Emergency Shut-off Moratorium and not disconnecting natural gas service at this time due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Once the moratorium is lifted, any unpaid balances will become due.
If you are experiencing financial difficulties during this pandemic, the COVID-19 Payment Program is available to you and offers payment plans up to 24 months, with no down payments, fees or interest is available. Please call us at 800.659.8299 for more information. Our company representatives are available to work with you to create a mutually agreeable payment arrangement to avoid interruption of your natural gas service. An initial payment may be required before any arrangements can be made. Residential customers can enroll in the COVID-19 Payment Program through February 9, 2021.
The Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) will help pay winter heating bills for low income qualified households. Applications are taken at your local Community Action Agency. Call InfoLine at 2-1-1 to find your local application site.
