Find Propane Resources

Updated:

There is still no long term solution to the propane shortage stretching across much of the state. There are however a few resources that may help. This page has a list of the resources we are aware of right now that might be able to help.

Get Assistance/Find Propane

  • Wisconsin Home Energy Plus has set up a toll free hotline to find propane near you and provide information on how to receive assistance if you cannot afford the rising prices.  That hot line is 1-866-432-8947
  • You can also get more information on the website for Wisconsin Home Energy Plus by clicking here
  • Wisconsin Home Energy Plus provides assistance for those who qualify.  Those who qualify must make 60 percent of the state's median income or less.  The following table will help you figure out if you qualify.

 

  • If you do not qualify for Wisconsin Home Energy Plus assistance but are still struggling, you may qualify for Keep WI Warm Fund (KWWF).  Those who qualify for KWWF must make 80 percent of the state's median income or less.  You can use the following table to calculate if you qualify.

  • It is suggested that you apply for assistance when your tank reaches 30 percent full to ensure you don not run out before the aide can kick in.
  • Marinette County residents can also call the Marinette County Energy Assistance Program as a first step in getting assistance.  That number is 715-732-7740. You may need to leave a message but all calls will be returned.
  • Marinette County says they realize there's a need to help those who don't qualify for Wisconsin Home Energy Plus or KWWF.  They are gathering information from the community to take to state leaders.  Take the survey to help them gather information by clicking here
