Anaheim Utilities will help those who are struggling, seniors and low income customers as much as possible. There are a few different types of programs available to help people pay for energy efficient upgrades, like discounts, credits, and government assistance. Some of the main assistance programs are: – Social Security – Medicare – Medicaid – Food Stamps – Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) – Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) – Section 8 Housing Assistance – Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
The Grants For Energy Efficiency and Residential Rehabilitation Loan Program can help Anaheim California homeowners improve their home’s energy efficiency and save money on their energy bills. These programs provide financial assistance to help cover the costs of energy efficiency improvements, such as installing new energy efficient windows, doors, and insulation. This is an option during regularly scheduled rehabilitation of existing single-family and multifamily homes. The program can help pay for improvements by either giving a low interest loan or a cash grant. We need to use this money to help protect our environment.
The Dusk to Dawn Light Installation will give free installation of fluorescent light fixtures or an energy-efficient high pressure sodium (HPS) system. Some people install photo sensors on their property as a way to save money on their electricity bill. The photo sensors cause the lights to automatically turn on at dusk and off at dawn.
If you are a senior citizen or have a disability, you may be able to get a discount on your bill. Anaheim Utilities offers a discount of up to 10% on electric bills for long-term disabled or low-income senior customers. However, these terms and conditions are subject to change. In order to be eligible for this program, applicants must earn below a certain amount of money. The company knows that some older adults and/or disabled people may have difficulty paying their bills, so this discount can help them.
The Helping Hands program is a charitable organization that relies on public donations to fund its operations. This can help Anaheim Utilities customers who are in a financial crisis pay their bills. The service can be used to pay for water, energy, and light bills. Please consider making a donation if you are able to do so, as your contribution can really make a difference. This is financial aid that can be used to pay for energy and electric bills.
The federal government’s low income home energy assistance program (LIHEAP) is always an option for people who need help paying their energy bills. Some Anaheim California residents may be able to get help paying their utility bills. This could include money for ongoing expenses as well as in a crisis. If you are interested in learning more about this program or applying to it, please call the Community Action Partnership (CAP). They handle applications.
If you are eligible for LIHEAP, Anaheim Public Utilities will help you pay for your electric and water service. Your service will not be cut off. For more information, please call 714.839.6199.
The Weatherization program is a federal government funded energy conservation program. Anaheim Utilities customers may be able to enroll into this resource at the same time as they enroll into LIHEAP. The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program is offered in partnership with the Community Action Partnership of Orange County. They are responsible for administering the program.
If you qualify, contractors working for the community action agency will replace old, inefficient appliances, make needed home repairs, and install energy-saving measures like insulation. Anaheim Public Utilities and the Community Action Partnership of Orange County will help low-income residents make their homes more energy-efficient and help them save water. This means that if you are eligible, you can get this for free. Weatherization can help lower a homeowner’s utility bill by up to 30% per year. The savings will vary based on many factors.
Some of the additional weatherization improvements that can be made to a home include adding more insulation to the ceilings and walls, repairing or replacing doors, replacing windows with broken glass, installing new showerheads, upgrading to high-efficiency appliances, and using weather-stripping and caulking to seal up any cracks or gaps. To learn more or to apply, please call 714.839.6199. If you need help with housing, you can contact the City of Anaheim Housing Authority. They can help you with income levels and status.
