AZ Workshops Educate Low Income Communities on Sustainable Energy
December 6, 2019 – Workshops in the Phoenix, Arizona area are available for low-income communities to attend, providing education on energy conservation topics. The workshops provided by Chipsa, include educating low-income attendees on how to interpret their energy bills.
Part of the initiative in these discussions is to include low-income, Spanish-speaking households in discussions related to energy conservation, including educating them on charges that may appear on their utility bills. The first event educates attendees on how “peak-hour pricing plans” work, and presenters provide energy-saving suggestions.
“An electricity bill can feel like a serious financial burden beyond a family’s control,” said Vianey Olivarria, a Chipsa representative, “The electricity bill is something everybody faces, everybody has to pay one. It’s not always easy to understand what you’re paying for.”
