HEAT Program Referrals

Do you have someone you know that needs assistance with paying their electricity, gas, or other heating bills from the high costs of winter? With their permission you can give us their information and we would be happy to contact them to help them apply for our services.

Rocky Mountain Power Home Energy Lifeline Program

The Home Energy Lifeline Program (HELP) is a monthly discount program for Rocky Mountain Power customers who meet HEAT Program eligibility. Clients must re-certify each year either on their HEAT/Crisis application or during a summer re-certification period. Income qualification is the same as for HEAT (at or below 150 percent of poverty). If you have applied for HEAT or Crisis assistance and have Rocky Mountain Power for your electricity, you have already received the monthly discount of $12.60 a month which adds up to $151.20 per year. If you did not apply for HEAT, you will want to complete a HELP application and submit it with the following documentation:

• Photo ID
• Social Security card
• All income from the month prior to the application
• Your most recent Rocky Mountain Power bill

If you need assistance with the application process, please call 801-521-6107 or 1-844-214-3090.
