Avista to Host Energy Fair at Salvation Army event
Free samples of energy-saving materials to be handed out along with Back Packs for Kids

Aug. 20, 2012 The free Avista Energy Fair 2012 will be held in conjunction with the Spokane Salvation Army’s Back Packs for Kids give-away on Thursday, Aug. 23 from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. The location is 222 East Indiana Avenue.
 
It may be hard to think of cold weather coming, but it will. The Avista Energy Fair 2012 will offer demonstrations of ways to keep homes warm and safe for the winter ahead. Fair attendees can speak with Avista staff and learn first-hand about low-cost and no-cost energy efficiency tips. They’ll see how to install window draft stoppers like rope caulk, window plastic and v-seal. Free samples of these and other materials to help people maximize energy efficiency in their homes will be given out at the fair.
 
In addition, Avista employees will have information about billing assistance and payment options. Avista community partner SNAP is scheduled to be in attendance to answer questions and provide helpful information about energy assistance and weatherization programs.
 
“Each year our customers ask for help in managing their energy use and costs during the winter. It’s never too early in the year for us to offer a broad range of ideas and demonstrations that will help residents keep the warm air inside and the cold air outside their homes,” said Anne Marie Axworthy, Avista’s director of consumer affairs. “This event provides a great way for customers to conveniently access Avista’s many services. Information about payment options, energy assistance and energy efficiency will be especially helpful to those struggling to pay their bills.”
 
For the kids, and the kids at heart, Wattson, Avista’s Energy Watchdog, will be on hand to share his message of energy efficiency and safety.
