Make sure to prioritize your utility bills each month, as these are essential for daily living. It is more expensive to turn the lights back on, after they have been shut off, than to address your monthly bill.
If you need assistance, GreenPath can help you prepare and review your budget, to help prioritize your expenses and budget for increasing utility costs. We can also refer you to local city and state programs to help you apply for utility assistance.
On days of extreme heat, don't forget about those who may need your help. Always remember to look in on shut-in neighbors and relatives. Also, watch your pets and neighborhood pets closely. They need more shade and water during this heat wave.
