National Energy and Utility Affordability Coalition

NEUAC executives engaged our company in 1993 and we continue to work with them on their annual conference.  NEUAC brings together upwards of 650 representatives from nonprofits, government agencies, Indian tribes, as well as utility companies to provide energy efficiency education, utility payment relief, and weatherization assistance to low-income households. The annual conference features nationally recognized speakers and workshops, as well as exhibitors. The purpose of NEAUC is to provide valuable information for energy assistance professionals and build national awareness of and address energy poverty.
