Senior Helping Seniors Program
Southwest Gas is here to support our customers in a variety of ways
Energy conservation saves money, and for Southern Nevada residents ages 55 and up, those savings can mean the difference between living a comfortable life and struggling to get by. Southwest Gas’ free energy conservation program, “Seniors Helping Seniors,” teaches conservation methods and installs energy saving and safety materials to age-appropriate homeowners.
Upon qualification, program consultants thoroughly examine homes for conservation and safety improvements, from checking for water leaks and installing weatherstripping to replacing smoke detector batteries and putting in deadbolt locks. Our volunteer teams will wrap exterior pipes to prepare for cold weather, install foam insulating gaskets in electric outlets, caulk in needed areas and educate homeowners about other low cost/no-cost energy savers.
Southwest Gas has teamed with Rebuilding Together and students from UNLV to offer a handyman service to accompany the existing services being provided.
To qualify for the program, customers must meet all of the following criteria:
• Be at least 55 years old and/or disabled
• Own their home, condominium, townhouse, or manufactured/mobile home
• Have a total annual household income below $27,380
• Be an active Southwest Gas customer
• Home must be at least five years old
Seniors Helping Seniors runs from October – May.
