Low Income Usage Reduction Program / Weatherization (LIURP)
The Low Income Usage Reduction Program or Weatherization offers free energy conservation measures to high usage, low income households to help make energy bills more affordable. Possible energy saving measures can include ceiling insulation, floor, duct and hot water pipe insulation, caulking and weather-stripping, gas heater repairs and water flow restrictors. You must be a residential UGI customer at the same address for at least 12 months before you can qualify for these services.
Two Pilot Programs Launched in 2012 Provide Funding for Community-Based Organizations
Any community-based organization interested in obtaining further information or funds through the Rehabilitation Pilot Program or the Conservation Pilot Program may contact the UGI Utilities Customer Outreach Department at LIURPTeam@ugi.com.
Rehabilitation Pilot Program Description The Rehbilitation Pilot Program was designed by UGI with the intent of taking a pro-active approach to the existing Low Income Usage Reduction Program offered by our company. This Pilot program allows UGI Utilities, Inc. to contribute to funding for the installation of energy efficient measures at the time of new construction or rehabilitation of an existing property. This pilot provides UGI the opportunity to partner with non-profit organizations in the UGI service territory to distribute these funds to housing projects.
This program varies from the traditional LIURP program because the energy efficient measures will be installed before service is activated at the property. Therefore Rehabilitation Pilot Program recipients will benefit from the energy efficient measures the first day they establish utility service.
Conservation Pilot Program The UGI Utilities, Inc. Conservation Pilot Program provides UGI the opportunity to contribute funds to a non-profit organization of their choice within the UGI, PNG, CPG and Electric service territories. It is aimed at increasing energy conservation or demanding reduction for a non-profit organization. Criteria for chosen organizations must consist of housing to a low income or transitional population, including abused women and children or similar situations.
