Wisconsin Residents Should Expect To Pay More To Heat Their Home This Winter

Thursday, November 15th, 2012 at 10:18 am

Last year, due to an unseasonably warm winter, most Wisconsin residents didn’t have to pay as much to heat their homes. But this winter is expected to be colder.

Madison Gas and Electric expects heating costs to rise 18% this year, or about $75 for the winter. We Energies predicts its customers in western and southeastern Wisconsin will pay about 9% more.

A Wisconsin Public Radio report says utilities have asked the state to let them raise rates on electric heating bills, 1-7%.
