The Energy Efficiency Arkansas website has many more suggestions for consumers who want to save on utility bills and improve energy efficiency in their homes. Visit www.EnergyEfficiencyArkansas.org.
In addition, some Arkansans may be eligible for the federally-funded Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), which provides assistance in paying utility bills. Most of that money is allocated to low-income elderly consumers and individuals with disabilities, as well as to other eligible consumers as funding becomes available. Local community action agencies have more details on the program. Visit www.acaaa.org for more information.
