BAKERSFIELD - If you're struggling to pay your energy bill, PG & E has a new program available that can help.
PG&E’s Energy Savings Assistance Program provides no-cost weatherization services to income-qualified households, which meet the income guidelines similar to those on the California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) Program.
Services provided include attic insulation, energy efficient refrigerators, energy efficient furnaces, weather-stripping, caulking, low-flow shower heads, water heater blankets, and door repairs which reduce air infiltration.
Local contractors are trained to implement the program on behalf of PG&E, which include energy specialists, weatherization specialists and natural gas appliance technicians.
There are five local contractors to choose from in Kern County.
To check the income guidelines or for more information on the program, call (800) 989-9744 or visit http://bit.ly/1tywsXx .
