Utility Relief Fund

As your local, not-for-profit utility, we are dedicated to supporting our community. If you have fallen behind on your utility bills, we can help by reducing your outstanding balance by 25%!

This is possible because Sturgeon Bay Utilities recently received a grant from the Door County Community Foundation, establishing the Sturgeon Bay Utility Relief Fund to assist customers impacted by the pandemic. 

To apply, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Complete the Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP) application to confirm eligibility. If approved, Sturgeon Bay Utilities will use the Utility Relief Funds to credit 25% of your total outstanding balance!

  • Visit homeenergyplus.wi.gov or call (920) 746-7155, option 1 for eligibility and program details.

Step 2: If you are ineligible for WHEAP assistance, you can still participate and reduce your total balance by 25% if you meet the following criteria:

  • Gross monthly income does not exceed 300% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (see below). 
  • The Utility bill relates to your primary residence as owner or tenant.

Maximum Gross Monthly Income


















The Utility Relief Funds will be applied to all components of the Sturgeon Bay Utilities bill, not just the electric portion.

To get started, please contact (920) 746-7155, option 1 or visit homeenergyplus.wi.gov
