City to host Feb. 25 Savannah Gardens energy-efficiency community event
SAVANNAH (Feb. 16) – The City of Savannah Office of Sustainability will host a community event in Savannah Gardens to provide energy-efficiency outreach and education to residents. The event will be held in the park of Savannah Gardens (520 E. Crescent Drive) from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 25. There will be fun for the whole family, including a bounce house, music, food, and community resources.
At the event, residents can learn about FREE home-improvement programs to help them save energy. Improvements can be done in just a day. The programs are available to residents who rent or own their home, if they meet the program’s income requirements (household income at or below 200% of Federal Poverty Guidelines; information available at www.bit.ly/heeapincome).
“Those of us who live and work in Savannah are often burdened with expensive energy bills just from trying to stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer,” said Denise Cheeseman, City of Savannah Office of Sustainability Project Manager. “The Office of Sustainability is here to connect you with resources like Georgia Power’s HEEAP program, which can help you keep your home comfortable with less energy use. Saving energy can help save you money on your power bills, too. We hope to see everyone out at Savannah Gardens on the 25th to learn more and take advantage of this free program.”
Interested residents should bring a copy of their Georgia Power bill to the event. On-site assistance with the application process will be available.
