The Naturgy Foundation organizes tomorrow, June 14, a training session of the School of Energy in Olot, by the Regional Council of La Garrotxa. The goal is to offer vulnerable families guidelines for more efficient energy consumption, reducing the amount of your bill without losing comfort at home.
Throughout this year, the Naturgy Foundation has already carried out fifteen more days of the School of Energy in different municipalities of Girona, to which 150 vulnerable families have attended.
The School sessions work on subjects related to energy efficiency or optimising bills. They also give information on people who might be eligible for the subsidised rate, and help them to apply for it. “What we are trying to do is empower the most vulnerable people, so they can minimise the impact of the cost of energy by applying the measures and advice explained at the workshops”, says Ester Sevilla, director of the Naturgy Foundation’s Social Projects and International area.
The Energy School is a Naturgy Foundation project and part of Naturgy’s Energy Vulnerability Plan.María Coronado, Managing Director of the Naturgy Foundation, highlights the partnerships they have with public authorities and social entities for running the School: “This initiative is only possible thanks to the support of others with a lot of experience in this field, such as the public authorities, and the professionals and volunteers from NGOs, such as Cruz Roja and Cáritas, as well as many other social organisations that are doing a great job throughout Spain.”
