MILWAUKEE — WE Energies predicts heating bills will be 11% less this winter compared to last, saving the average customer about $58.

The heating forecast from WE Energies uses a 20-year average of winter weather and the price of natural gas to get their estimates.

As the first bout of cold weather hits this weekend, its a good reminder of steps to take to save on your energy bill.

WE Energies suggests sealing gaps around windows, doors and siding, and turning your thermostat down 7-10 degrees when you sleep or you're away from your home.

If you are needing energy assistance, The Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program can offer qualified residents a one-time grant to pay energy bills. For more information, see their website.
