YARMOUTH, Maine (December 21, 2021) – To assist with home heating costs this winter, Summit Natural Gas of Maine (SNGME) is distributing a total of ten thousand dollars to the Kennebec Valley Community Action Program and the towns of Cumberland, Falmouth, Yarmouth, and Clinton.
These funds will be used to help low-income families who are struggling to pay their home heating bills.
“Keeping our customers safe and warm is our highest priority,” said Matt Jacobson, Director of Sales and Marketing at SNGME. “We are seeing energy costs rise nationally, and across the world, as we head into this winter. With another Maine winter coming towards us, we see that families in our communities are not unaffected by the change in energy prices. This is why we are eager to do our part to help our customers and community members who need a little extra help keeping their homes warm this winter season.”
SNGME’s parent company, Summit Utilities, Inc., is committed to helping its communities stay warm this winter and has pledged to donate thirty thousand dollars to assist families with home heating costs across its service territories across the country.
SNGME urges customers struggling to pay their bills this winter to call their customer service department as soon as possible to learn more about payment assistance options including payment plans, budget billing, energy efficiency rebates, and information about heating assistance programs offered by the state and municipality.
