PG&E Slashes Prices for Low-Income Households

Dr. Lawrence VanHook

PG&E has partnered with faith leader Dr. Lawrence VanHook of The Commu­nity Church in Oakland to offer low-income house­holds extensive discounts on their energy bills.

Some residents will auto­ matically qualify if they par­ticipate in public assistance programs like Medicaid/ Medi-Cal, Women Infants and Children, National School Lunch Program, Food stamps, and many more.

Immigration status does not affect eligibility, and no social security number is required. The program is seeking pro­fessionals who are fluent in English and Spanish, or Taga­log, or Cantonese, or Manda­rin, to help the project reach communities in need. The role includes promoting PG&E awareness initiative; conduct­ing focus, training, and com­munity events; tract and report data monthly; and participating in advance training and team meetings.

Through this program, PG&E aims to conduct out­reach to diverse, hard-to-reach communities through trusted community partners.

Contact Dr. Lawrence Van­Hook at (510) 594-2207 for more information about the program, or to apply for the contract position.
