Learn about money-saving resources for renters and homeowners
If you’re 60 or older, you may not know something that could be saving you money on your home heating and electric bills. Fortunately, you have two opportunities in early October to learn what you’re missing out on.
“Energy Savings for Seniors” is a free, annual event offered by the Benefits Counseling Program at LifePath. The event takes place at two locations each fall, and this year those are:
- October 3, 2017, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., at Great Falls Discovery Center, 2 Avenue A, Turners Falls, Mass.
- October 4, 2017, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., at Athol Senior Center, 82 Freedom Street, Athol, Mass.
Local experts at these energy events will share information with persons age 60+ and their family and/or caregivers, as well as home care agency staff, about home energy benefits they qualify for that will help them save money, gain access to free or low-cost weatherization programs, and obtain rebates for energy efficient appliances. New this year will be some discussion of mini splits and solar for low-income households. One-on-one assistance for home owners and renters will be available.
Both locations are accessible and have nearby parking. The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
