PIPP Plus is an extended payment plan that requires regulated gas and electric companies to accept payments based on a percentage of the household income.

Under PIPP Plus, if you heat with gas or electric, you pay 6% of your monthly household income. If you heat and cool with electricity, you pay 10% of your monthly household income.

  • WOCAP can enroll and re-verify PIPP Plus amounts
  • All PIPP Plus customers must re-verify their income annually
  • By completing the Energy Assistance Application, you can enroll and re-verify your PIPP Plus amount as well as apply for a Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) benefit

To be eligible for the PIPP Plus program, a customer must receive primary or secondary heat from a company regulated by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) and have a total household income at or below 150% of the 2016-17 federal poverty guidelines.
