Binghamton, NY, December 9, 2010 – NYSEG will hand out reusable grocery bags filled with easy-to-install weatherization supplies at six upcoming Mobile Food Pantry distributions hosted by the Food Bank of the Southern Tier. The supplies will include an insulation kit for three windows, a roll of weather stripping for sealing windows and doors, and 10 switch/outlet sealers.
NYSEG representatives will also be on hand to distribute information and answer questions about the federal Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP), NYSEG’s new Energy Assistance Program for low income customers and how to use energy wisely.
