The Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP) provides assistance for heating costs, electric costs, and energy crisis situations. Operating with federal and state funding, the program provides assistance to households across the state to help lower the burden incurred with monthly energy costs.

Most types of fuel are eligible to receive assistance. Whether you use wood, propane, natural gas, electricity, or fuel oil to heat your home, energy assistance is available if you qualify.

The Division of Energy contracts with local agencies to provide basic weatherization services which:
Reduce your home heating bills
Save energy
Make your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

If you are eligible for weatherization services based on your WHEAP application, your application information will be referred to the local weatherization agency. Households selected for potential weatherization services will be contacted by the weatherization agency. The agency will then make arrangements to have an energy auditor will look at your home to see what can be done to make it more energy efficient. Weatherization services differ with each home depending on how it was built and its condition. Some common weatherization services include:
Insulate attics, walls and floors
Insulate or replace water heater
Install energy efficient lighting
Reduce air leakage
Repair or replace furnace
Test and/or replace refrigerator
Perform a general health and safety inspection
Provide information about maintenance and energy conservation
