Peoples Gas sponsors resource fairs for customers struggling to pay their heating bills.
Representatives from Peoples Gas, the Community Economic and Development Association (CEDA) and human services agencies will provide residents with information on energy assistance and other resources. CEDA will take applications for energy assistance through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) and Share the Warmth program.
Customers also can learn about rebates for high-efficiency products and sign up for Home Energy Jumpstart, which provides free energy-saving products such as programmable thermostats, showerheads, faucet aerators, pipe insulation, CFLs and smart power strips.
Customers who can't attend the fair can use the CEDA Energy Service Site Locator to find a location to apply.
