WYO Home Heating Bill Workshop: Keep it Simple and Get Cash Back

October 19, 2009

CHEYENNE, Wyo. - Operation Energy Save kicks off this week in Wyoming with a free workshop offering simple tips and tricks to keep winter utility bills under control. AARP Wyoming and Cheyenne Light, Fuel & Power Company are sponsoring the event, and Sharon Fain, external affairs director for Cheyenne Light, says that, while much of the focus on utility bill assistance in previous years has been aimed at helping those with lower incomes, this workshop in Cheyenne Wednesday will have information that can help people at all income levels.

"We can suggest cost-saving ways and opportunities to weatherize their homes. There will be some cost-saving rebate offers for energy-efficient appliances."

Joanne Bowlby, associate state director of communications with AARP Wyoming, says that, with the recession, it's understandable that so many people are concerned about their winter utility bills.

"We're encouraging people who rent, own their home, or own a small business to come to this workshop. There are different speakers that will present information that is tailored to each one of those folks."

There are rebates also available for insulation, new windows and heating systems, and there are programs available to help people pay heating bills even if they don't qualify for state assistance under traditional guidelines.

The Operation Energy Save Workshop is to be held Wednesday, 9 a.m. to noon, at the Cheyenne Depot.
