I want to thank the nonprofit community for attending the recent heating forum sponsored by United Way of North Central Massachusetts and Unitil.
With the cold weather here now, I want to remind homeowners and renters that there are programs that can help, Federal Fuel Assistance as well as incentives to assist with energy-efficiency improvements.
The best way to reduce your energy bill is to reduce usage. There is a federal program that provides no-cost energy saving improvements, such as insulation and heating system repairs, to homeowners who meet income guidelines.
We encourage families to apply early for assistance.
To learn more about any of these programs, please contact your public utility company or Mass 211 by dialing 211.
