Utility companies in Pennsylvania may offer assistance for your utility bill. For instance the Pennsylvania Customer Assistance Program (PCAP) has a program available that can lower your monthly bill. This program works by offering a reduced rate based on a percentage of your income each month. The percentage of your income will be the payment you make to the utility company. This amount should be significantly lower than what you would pay otherwise. For more information about this program please call 1-888-282-6816 .
