W.Va. elder advocates to host home-energy talks
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Advocates for older West Virginians plan to hold a gathering to discuss home-energy affordability and the impact of rising utility bills.
AARP West Virginia and the Huntington Area AARP chapter say their community conversation will take place Thursday evening at the St. Mary's Center for Education in Huntington.
At the discussion, AARP West Virginia officials will share information on pending West Virginia utility rate cases that could have an impact on monthly residential utility rates in the future.
AARP officials say home-energy affordability and rising rates particularly can affect older people who live on fixed incomes.
