Senator Hinojosa will host an Energy Fair on Saturday, May 22, from 10-2 p.m. at the University of Texas-Pan American Annex located at 2412 South Closner in Edinburg.

Hidalgo County residents will be able to compare and shop for lower electricity rates. Consumers will receive information on electricity bill assistance if they fall behind or cannot make payment during the summer months. Several electric power retailers will be in attendance.

The Texas Department of Housing & Community Affairs will also be on hand to provide homeowners with help on how to weatherize their home. Energy efficiency can effectively reduce energy consumption, resulting in lower energy bills.
