Low-income families in Saskatoon are now able to apply for a new energy assistance program with SaskPower.

The program is designed to help homes become more energy-efficient and save money.

For those who are eligible for the program, home energy advisors install a number of items including a smart thermostat, LED light bulbs, high-efficiency showerheads and kitchen/bathroom faucet aerators.

“It helps our customers understand the ways that their bills can be lowered,” said SaskPower media relations consultant Scott McGregor.

“It also allows us to have a one-on-one conversation with our customers to find ways to lower their utility bills. These are ways we can help take the stress out of people’s lives.”

McGregor says especially in the summer months when it’s hot out, people use their air conditioning more, resulting in greater use in power.

The program was launched in Regina last year and is now available province-wide.

McGregor says Light and Power customers in Saskatoon and Swift Current also have access to it.
