City Light wants to increase enrollment in its Utility Discount Program to help low-income or senior customers. The program offers up to 60 percent discount on utility bills and a free home energy visit. About 13,000 people are currently in the program, but we know there are at least 20,000 people out there who would qualify. Those who are in the most need of the discount rate program are more likely to enroll with the help of a friend or family member. Here are three steps you can take:
1. Be aware of the program, learn more at: http://www.seattle.gov/light/accounts/assistance/
2. Pass It On to three families or friends in your local community such as senior centers, food banks, school lunch programs, and nonprofit organizations serving disadvantaged people).
3. Share it at work! If you are interacting with customers who might qualify, pass it on. If you are canvassing an area or doing community outreach and you need program flyers/posters to distribute, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and write “Pass it On” on subject line.
