Home Energy Action Teams: PGW Training Workshops for service providers

Posted by on November 25, 2005


Home Energy Action Teams (HEAT) 4 PHILLY represents Philadelphia Gas Works’ (PGW?s) commitment to reach out to those who are eligible for utility assistance but have not applied. To achieve this outreach, PGW seeks to build meaningful relationships with community and faith based organizations who are typically the “first responders” in times of crisis.
