February 2, 2018 – Michigan’s Superior Watershed Partnership (SWP) Michigan Energy Assistance Program is offering assistance to low-income residents during the cold-weather season (October 1st-September 30th, 2018) or until funding is depleted. The SWP may require customers to attend an energy conservation workshop.
Elizabeth Dow, an energy conservation instructor with the Superior Watershed Partnership, said, “Through the class, they learn a lot about energy conservation, but also, any energy that you don’t use is energy that you don’t have to pay for, so we really want to educate people on lowering their energy costs for in their home.”
The workshop offers Energy Efficiency Kits to attendees. These kits include items that help with home energy conservation such as light switch and outlet sealers, draft stoppers and caulking.
Currently, 107 attendees have participated and received the Energy Efficiency Kits. In addition to the workshop, participants are able to sign up for a home energy assessment and receive $100 worth of insulation supplies.
