July 13, 2018 – The Michigan Agency for Energy (MAE) has provided some tips for senior citizens to not only stay cool during the hot summer months, but to save money on their utility bills as well. Senior citizens can largely benefit from these tips, but anyone who is looking to stay cool and save money on their energy bills can also benefit from them—as well as educate others on what they know.
MAE’s Chief Executive Director, Anne Armstrong Cusak, said, “As we move into the hottest part of summer with long spells of high temperatures, it’s vitally important that our older Michiganders know how to beat the heat while keeping their energy bills affordable. We also want to remind family, friends, and neighbors to check in on seniors throughout the summer to make sure they are OK and discuss energy-saving tips with them.”
