AARP Maine continues to fight to keep utility rates fair and reasonable in the state with the country’s oldest population. Maine already has electricity rates that are higher than the national average, and they have increased even further in the last 12 months. Rising utility costs coupled with higher housing, food and medicine expenses force many vulnerable, older adults to make tough choices. However, electricity costs are a particular concern and have increased faster than the rate of inflation.
AARP Maine will hold free utility workshops in Portland, Bangor and Auburn for Mainers who want to:
Portland: November 14th, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM in the University of Southern Maine's University Events Room, on the 7th floor of the Glickman Family Library. To register, click here.
Bangor: November 16th, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM in the Norman Minsky Lecture Hall at the Bangor Public Library. Register here.
Auburn: November 17th, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM in the Androscoggin Community Room at the Auburn Public Library. Click here to register.
If you have any questions, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to reach an AARP Maine staff member.
