Need help with your energy bills?

Everything around us is becoming more expensive, challenging household budgets. If your paycheck isn’t stretching as far as it used to, making it hard to manage your energy costs, we understand. Maybe you’re unable to work or you’re simply having a hard time getting ahead – whatever the reason, we’re here to assist.

Avista offers options that can relieve the stress of high winter energy use. If you’re looking ways to get caught up on or pay your bill, control or lower your monthly energy costs, here are some possible solutions:

*Eligibility varies by account.

**Income and other restrictions may apply.

For Avista customers in Oregon and Washington, thanks to direction and support from their state’s utility commissions, monthly bill discounts may be available. Our My Energy Discount program can lower one’s energy costs for two years. Eligibility guidelines are more inclusive than traditional energy assistance programs, making it easier to get help. Funding is available to all who qualify, and no paperwork or appointments are needed to apply.

If you need help with your energy bill and are unsure what options may be available to you, visit or call us at (800) 227-9187 to learn more.
