Energy Outreach Colorado to host an Energy Poverty Demonstration Behind These Walls

Denver, CO –February 4, 2020.  Energy Outreach Colorado (EOC) will host a demonstration project called Behind These Walls to highlight energy poverty, the circumstances that vulnerable households face, and how they are often invisible from the outside. The walls of their home shield others from knowing or understanding the true burden of energy insecurity.

By displaying what is Behind These Walls, we will spotlight the many struggles that people all across Colorado face.  Tens of thousands of families with children, the elderly, teachers, students, and people with disabilities or health concerns often need critical support to afford their basic home energy costs every year.

When:   Thursday, February 27, 2020

Where:  Denver Union Station (on the south end of the Plaza)

Time:    8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

FREE and open to the public

This event will not only expose their situations (from a broken furnace and its health risks, to sleeping in front of a stove for warmth) it will also educate and empower people to better identify and assist those suffering through these conditions. Many in silence and unseen.
