“A few months ago, we learned that high summer utility bills are often causing residents (particularly seniors and the working poor) to get behind on rent or house payments or to skip prescriptions to pay for keeping their electric service on. The United Way does have an emergency financial need program, but why not prevent the need from occurring? Weatherizing your home can save you 20-40% on monthly utility bills,” stated John Dias, UWSC Executive Director.
Through the weatherization assistance program, qualifying renters and homeowners may be eligible to receive home weatherization including installation of energy efficiency measures free of charge.
