PRESQUE ISLE, Maine – Versant Power will hold an Energy Literacy Day event in partnership with the Aroostook Agency on Aging on Wednesday, Oct. 11 from 9-11 a.m. at the Aroostook Agency on Aging at 260 Main St. in Presque Isle.

The event will include a one-hour presentation and Q&A session with information about  understanding electricity bills, rate changes, and more. Versant Power representatives will be  available to answer questions following the presentation. A representative from the Aroostook  County Action Program will be present to answer questions about assistance programs and  materials will be available from Efficiency Maine. 

According to Judy Anderson, director of community and volunteer services at the Aroostook  Agency on Aging, the informational session will help residents better understand what their  electric bills mean, so they can start to make smarter decisions that could save money on  future energy costs. 

“Older people or their family caregivers often reach out to our Agency to help them  understand important and sometimes complex topics. We work with community partners like  Versant Power to answer questions, connect them to resources, or assist them with  applications for services,” Anderson said. 

“We understand that energy affordability is a concern for all customers, but most notably for  our aging population. Our hope is to connect with customers to help them understand our  business a little better, and provide awareness of the resources available from Versant and our  community partners,” said Lisa Henaghen, billing and payment manager at Versant Power.
