Early forecasts have midweek temperatures plummeting as low as -35.  Even by Montana standards, this is cold.  This is also no time to be without heat and if you find yourself facing an energy emergency, there is help available here in Butte.

What is an energy emergency?

Have you received a shut off notice from the power company?  Do you owe money on your power bill and are unable to obtain service?  Is your furnace or home heating system not functioning?  These are examples of an energy emergency and through ACTION, Inc. help is available through the Energy Share Program.  The Energy Share Program not only provides immediate emergency assistance but they help their clients move towards self-reliance.  Energy Share applications can be obtained through the local HRDC and a list can be found here.  Other services, such as weatherization and furnace and water heater efficiency and safety programs are available as well.
