Winter Heating Season Moratorium to End

The annual winter heating season moratorium on disconnections will end April 15. The moratorium is in place in Wisconsin every winter – from November 1 – April 15, stopping utility companies from disconnecting home heating services due to nonpayment. We talk about options for consumers who owe bills for heat.
