Webinars: What is Your Energy Burden? Why is It So High? Jan. 26 & 27

Operation Fuel and Kamora’s Cultural Corner (KCC) invite you to join the conversation about Connecticut’s high energy costs and the burdens low-income residents face. Have you experienced heat or electricity shutoff? Are you worried that you will? Share your experience and learn more about protections the state legislature and regulators provide to residents struggling to pay their bills. Join us for two online events, a Community Conversation on January 26 and a Energy Policy Panel.

January 26, 6-8 p.m. – KCC Community Conversation

Are energy costs hurting your wallet, health, family, and home? How do you deal with unaffordable utility bills? What is your experience with energy insecurity? Come to listen, share your story, and connect with others working hard to keep the lights and heat running this winter. KCC will livestream this event on their Facebook page.

January 27, 6:30-7:30 p.m. – Vulnerable Families in Energy Policy

Operation Fuel Executive Director Brenda Watson will moderate a discussion about energy insecurity and policy solutions. We extend the conversation on energy burden with community members, Public Utilities Regulatory Authority Chair Marissa Gillett, CT Rep. Hilda Santiago, and KCC CEO Kamora Herrington. This event will offer CT residents an opportunity to share how families cope with cold and darkness because of high utility costs. We will also discuss protections available for low-income CT residents, and programs that help bring down utility costs.

Please register here. KCC will livestream this event on their Facebook page.
