Winter's Finally Over, But Utility Bill Surprises Still Lurk

April 30, 2007


Temperatures are rising, and so are utility bill concerns in Colorado. Thousands of families took advantage of state help paying heating bills over the winter, and that program ends today. Jennifer Gremmert with Energy Outreach Colorado says the good news is that other kinds of help are available in the interest of good health.

“Especially during really hot months and folks that are home-bound, they need to have a cool, safe environment. So that's why we provide a network of help year-round.”

She adds that lower-income families can also get a free kit to help them reduce their utility bills.

“These kits include compact fluorescent light bulbs, low-flow shower heads and then lots of really good information for families.”

The kits and more information on energy assistance can be found at a number of agencies statewide. For a list of locations, visit www.energyoutreach.org, or call 1-866-HEAT-HELP.
