(PLAINFIELD) - Duke Energy is once again assisting customers who may struggle to pay their winter energy bills

The company is contributing $700,000 for low-income customer energy assistance through its Helping Hand program.

In addition, Duke Energy Indiana customers are contributing more than $86,000, raising this year's total to approximately $800,000.

"Each year our shareholders and customers contribute to help families and individuals who may be struggling to pay their winter energy bills," said Duke Energy Indiana President Melody Birmingham-Byrd. "Last year, we were able to help 5,600 Hoosiers."

Customers who need help paying their electricity bills can receive up to $300 toward their bill if their local Energy Assistance Program agency determines they are eligible based on need and other criteria.

Duke Energy Indiana partners with the Indiana Community Action Association and the Indiana Housing & Community Development Authority's Energy Assistance Program, which distributes the company's assistance funds.
