1/23/23 UPDATE: Due to snow, the 1/23 Energy Assistance Fair has been rescheduled to Monday, Feb. 6, 4pm-7pm at the Morse Institute Library.
Town of Natick offices are getting lots of questions from residents regarding the big increases in electricity rates now that the first bills reflecting those hikes have started to arrive.
One way to get some of your questions answered and find possible ways to save money is by attending an upcoming Energy Assistance Fair.
An Energy Assistance Fair is scheduled at Morse Institute Library at 14 East Central St. in Natick on Monday, Jan. 23, 4-7pm. (Another is slated for Jan. 31, 4-7pm in Framingham at the South Middlesex Opportunity Council at 7 Bishop St.)
Natick is partnering with Eversource and area nonprofits through Mass Save Community First Partnership to help residents manage energy costs, get help paying bills, and use less energy.
At the fairs, learn about fuel assistance programs, discounted rates and flexible payment plans, no-cost Home Energy Assessments, and more. Many programs are not tied to income levels.
Representatives will also be available to share information and answer questions about other programs and services available, which may include property tax assistance, food assistance, social services and municipal electricity aggregation.
More information on available local resources can be accessed by calling the Human Services Department in Natick (508-647-6519).
