As a major supporter of RTMD’s mission, Encana occupies a special place as we address emergency repair needs all year long. Working primarily with an older population, RTMD fields calls weekly from homeowners in distress regarding heating/cooling needs, electrical and plumbing crises, and other repairs that need immediate attention for the safety of the homeowner.
Some facts about our homeowners:
- 85% served are over the age of 75
- The average homeowner lives on less than $1400 per month
- They spend an average of 15% on utility costs, while the average Denver homeowner spends between 2-3% comparably
Our ability to respond to urgent needs while continuing to provide ongoing energy education on the use of natural gas and other energy-efficient upgrades is making a major contribution to our overall objectives for 2012.
