American Power & Gas to donate energy-saving products to 200 Habitat for Humanity homes in NY, PA and OH!
Team members from the energy company visited with homeowners in New York and Pennsylvania, where they donated energy-saving products, which should provide more than $600 in energy savings, each year, to each family. Each homeowner was given a NEST programmable thermostat, power reduction surge protectors, LED light bulbs and water saving shower heads and faucets.
According to representatives from American Power and Gas, the energy company is planning to give the gift package to 100 Habitat for Humanity homeowners in each state they operate.
“This is just the first step in our 100 Powered Families program, which will help these families and also help the environment,” said Andrea d’Agostini, vice president of marketing and public relations. “We came to Habitat for Humanity because we believe in what they are doing and we wanted to help those families to get back on their feet financially.”
The first 10 homeowners receiving the 100 Powered Families gift packages were in Buffalo, New York, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and were identified by Habitat for Humanity.
“Habitat New York is grateful to American Power & Gas for their generous gift of energy efficient products, which will integrate a higher level of energy efficiencies into homes across the state and ensure long term savings and sustainability for Habitat homeowners,” said Judith Nelson, president & CEO of Habitat for Humanity of New York State.
American Power & Gas plans to expand the 100 Powered Families initiative to Ohio and New Jersey later this year.
In addition to helping the families, the energy company is planning to reach out directly to their current customer base to promote volunteering and participation in home building initiatives hosted by Habitat for Humanity. They will communicate with current customers to inform them about what can be done to assist the Habitat for Humanity.
