Energy company helps outfit 50 additional Habitat for Humanity homes

NEW YORK – Last month, American Power & Gas, a leading energy provider in New York and other states, donated boxes full of supplies to help provide 50 Habitat for Humanity homes with energy saving products and served as a platinum sponsor for the 2016 Affiliates Building Leadership and Excellence Conference.

In addition, American Power & Gas will continue fulfilling the “100 Powered Families” campaign, which is providing energy efficient products to Habitat for Humanity families moving into new homes in each state the company serves.

“We are very proud to be partnered with an amazing organization like Habitat for Humanity,” said Andrea d’Agostini, vice president of marketing and public relations. “By providing energy efficient goods to new home owners we will be accomplishing two objectives. They’ll not only save on their energy costs, but also have a positive impact on the environment.”

While attending the conference, representatives from American Power & Gas delivered 40 boxes of energy efficient goods, including Nest Thermostats, two surge protectors with eight sockets, 16 LED lightbulbs, and water-saving shower and sink faucets, which will be used in new homes built by Habitat for Humanity. If properly used these supplies should save the families approximately $500 in utility expenses each year. 

The 100 Powered Families initiative has been a point of emphasis for the energy company in Pennsylvania and New York. Additionally, American Power & Gas will serve as the platinum sponsor for the Habitat for Humanity of Ohio 2016 State Conference, which will occur November 10-11.

In addition to helping the families who will benefit from this program, American Power & Gas is reaching out directly to their current customer base to promote volunteering and participation in home building initiatives hosted by Habitat for Humanity. They will communicate with current customers to inform them about what can be done to assist the Habitat for Humanity in their mission to provide homes to those who need them.
