Energy Services is designed to assist in meeting energy needs with low-income households and encouraging consumers to control energy costs through energy education.
What we offer
TCOG's Energy Services department includes utility and weatherization services.
Utility assistance provides co-payment of utilities and the provision of supportive services in an effort to transition low-income families out of poverty and off of public assistance.
Counties served: Collin, Cooke, Denton, Fannin, Grayson, Hunt, Rockwall
Utility assistance includes the co-payment of utilities for a specific period of time while learning ways to conserve energy. Services also include a case management program with the goal of transitioning families off welfare by providing assistance with the cost of expenses such as education, training and other necessary supplies and supportive services.
Each client situation is evaluated through an application process and the appropriate program service is then determined. Individual goals and objectives are identified as well as techniques for budgeting and energy conservation which will transition the client from poverty and/or address crisis situations.
