Redding, Calif. -- The Redding Electric Utility is expanding its discount program to low income individuals.

This comes as the Redding City Council approved the program proposal earlier this week.

R.E.U. says many residents are currently having trouble paying their utility bills, so with this program 5,600 low income residents will have a $15 to $34 discounted on their bills.

"The key component to this is that more people will qualify the old lifeline plus you only had to have a 50 percent of medium income now you will qualify up to 60 percent of medium," said Mark Haddad the assistant director of finance. 

R.E.U says the program is already in progress , and residents who have applied for the discount could start seeing smaller bills as of April 4th.
