DULUTH, Minn.- The 14th annual Energy Awareness Expo kicked off today at the Salvation Army.
The event is hosted by the Minnesota Board of Light and Power, AEOA, and Comfort Systems. The organizations invited income eligible customers to meet with energy providers ask questions and learn tips on energy conservation. The event is popular with customers, the line to get into the Expo, wrapped around the building.
“They feel empowered by learning different ways to save energy,” Minnesota Power customer solutions analyst Amanda Oja said. “We really feel it’s important to show our income eligible customers that, even if they’re having a hard time financially, there’s ways they can get the most out of their energy dollar.”
To help reduce their energy bills, customers were provided with energy saving kits. The final stop in the expo served up a hot meal.
