May 26, 2021—The Kerrville Public Utility Board (KPUB) and Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG) will be partnering with the Doyle Community Center for the community’s “Food for the Soul and Juneteenth Celebration” that will be hosted on Friday, June 11, 2021.
The community event will be located at the Doyle Center Pavilion from 12-2 p.m., and festivities will include a celebration of culture, music, food tastings, line dancing, giveaways and drawings.
Representatives from both KPUB and AACOG will be present at the event to promote energy efficiency, home energy saving tips and funding available through AACOG’s Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP). AACOG’s program is designed to help low-income people, particularly the elderly and handicapped, overcome the high cost of energy by installing energy conservation measures at no cost to the applicant. AACOG’s program is 100% free for those that income qualify and can be available to both renters and homeowners.
Although AACOG’s WAP program does not address major home repairs, it can help lower the amount of energy used in a home by enhancing the structure’s thermal boundary. Like a styrofoam cup, the house will stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. The less energy it takes to heat or cool the house, the more money that is saved on utility bills.
Additionally, KPUB will be providing complimentary energy-saving educational materials and home weatherization kits to the first 50 attendees, first come, first served.
“As a not-for-profit utility company, helping our neighbors save energy and money is important to us,” said KPUB Director of Customer & Community Relations, Allison Bueché. “We’re thrilled to partner with AACOG to provide program and educational opportunities that share the ways that our community can lower their energy bills.”
For questions, contact Bueché at 830.792.8250 or the Doyle Community Center at 830.257.4446. KPUB’s energy savings tips can be found online at kpub.com, and AACOG’s WAP program information is available online at aacog.com/120/Weatherization-Assistance-Program.
