Oregon HEAT is an independent organization founded in 1989 to help low income Oregonians become more energy self-reliant. Oregon HEAT’s primary program objective is to prevent disconnection of utility service during inclement weather by providing bill payment assistance to low income households in emergency situations. Oregon HEAT works with social service and other agencies across the state to screen requests for assistance from customers of Pacific Power, PGE, West Oregon Electric Cooperative, and the City of Milton-Freewater. There are also oil assistance programs in the Portland and Salem metro areas for low-income Oregonians who heat with oil. Oregon HEAT makes payments directly to utilities or venders on behalf of low income customers who are qualified for assistance.
