Ameren donates air conditioners to regional planning commission
Some low-income area residents will again have the opportunity to keep cool and safe this summer.
On Wednesday, Ameren Illinois donated fifty window air conditioners to the Champaign County Regional Planning Commission as part of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program known as LIHEAP. The program is designed to help eligible low-income households pay for energy services, and some recipients have already been identified.
Champaign County Regional Planning Commission Communications Director Steve Bevil said the donation of air conditioners will fill a great need.
Bevil says the commission plans to distribute the air conditioners to people who have already qualified beginning next Tuesday at the Brookens Administrative Center in Urbana.
