South San Francisco, CA    October 18, 2015  

Our good neighbor Eleanora shared information on this agency which encouraged us to check it out a bit further and to share with a wider audience.

Hi folks,

El Concelia Energy Savings Assistance Program through PG&E
wants to help you for free to install energy saving
lights, shower or hand held shower heads, weather
stripping, thresholds, aerators, etc.  They will check gas
leaks, water heaters, outlets and so much more for free.
They will also see if you qualify for a new refrigerator
if yours is before 1999.  They will give you a new
microwave oven.

Also, they will try and put you in another program and if
you qualify they will install a new front or back door.
Install new outlets, fix your faucets and plumbing, etc.

Please share this with others who need help.  Please
contact Mrs. Jenny McCray 650-654-7756, Joaquin Narvaez,
Ortensia 650-373-1087.  PG&E 1800-989-9744.

By contacting them you are also helping these men keep
their jobs.

Hi Judy, please call Ortensia and get on this program. The men who made repairs were complete gentlemen. You will be on the program for three years. The repairs have a one year warranty. God Bless, +Eleanora+

I am a senior citizen of South San Francisco and very much interested in this program. I always have a hard time getting home up keep done.
Everything is so expensive and I am on a fixed income.

Will be awaiting your response.

Thank you.
