Heating bills will likely be higher this winter due to a nationwide increase in natural gas prices, according to We Energies.

The price of natural gas has more than doubled this year due to low supplies and high demand. We Energies predicts customers will pay $25 more per month this winter.

Residents can apply for energy assistance through the Home Energy Plus Program and/or the Keep Wisconsin Cool/Warm Fund if they need help paying for heat.

We Energies suggests customers be proactive about conserving energy in their home by turning down the thermostat, sealing gaps around windows and doors and scheduling a furnace tuneup.
