Weather could impact spring power cut-offs

This winter's frigid temperatures will lead to considerably higher heating bills, and a local utility is reminding people to work out a payment plan, if they start to fall behind.

Wisconsin Public Service spokesman Kerry Spees says bills will likely be about $100 higher than last year, because of the cold January weather. He says that will likely lead to more delinquent customers.

He says it's hard to predict if they'll have more disconnections than normal, when utilities can cut people off in mid-April. Spees says if people are having problems paying their bill, they should call their utility immediately, so they can work something out.
