SILVER SPRING, Md (WDVM)– The Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection will be hosting a series of Energy Roadshows throughout November.
Thursday evening they kicked off the Energy Road Show at the Silver Spring library. This roadshow is in partnership with there brand new website where residents can find resources on everything energy-related such as lowering utility bills, to switching to renewable energy, to energy assistance.
The free events are open to all and provide residents with the resources they need to not only reduce their carbon footprint, but save some money too. The office of Consumer Protection was in attendance as well to discuss how you can prevent energy scams.
“That’s why we make sure to do events like this so people know who the legitimate providers are and so they do it the right way so that they’re not getting scammed and if anytime anyone calls your home and asks for your credit card number over the phone, that’s most definitely a scam so we ask you to contact the office of consumer protection,” said Larissa Johnson Energy program manager.
