Walker announced the agreement Thursday with Madison Gas and Electric and We Energies.
The agreement will give the state access to more than 117,000 gallons of propane stored at those utilities.
Under the agreement, the state can access up to 42,000 gallons of propane stored at We Energies' Oak Creek facility, with the possibility of an additional 30,000 gallons from We Energies' Tomah facility. Madison Gas and Electric is providing up to 45,000 gallons of propane.
Any propane the state requests will be deployed to help meet the needs of residents qualifying for low-income assistance. The state will replace the propane reserves when the heating season is over.
