Denver accepting applications for energy assistance program

Posted

Last month the city of Denver opened applications for its annual Low-Income Energy Assistance Program through the Office of Human Services. Applications will be accepted until April 30.

The program is run statewide and more than 7,100 households were able to get assistance in the 2018-2019 season. The program can help homeowners and renters save money on their heating costs, according to a news release from the city.

For more information, or to apply, go to www.denvergov.org/LEAP.

The release also included other tips on how to save money and energy during the cold months:

• Replace your furnace filter every two months during winter.

• Keep curtains, shutters and blinds closed at night and when it is cloudy.

• Turn down your heat; each degree you turn it down will save about 3% on your heating bill.

• Replace incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs.

• Set water heater temperatures at 120 degrees or lower.
