Saginaw resident receives new energy-efficient appliances in effort to help seniors stay safe, comfortable this summer
Staff and volunteers from Meals On Wheels of Tarrant County and TXU Energy delivered food, heat-safety information and energy-efficient nightlights to more than 3,000 Tarrant County residents Tuesday in a combined effort to help homebound seniors remain safe and comfortable through the summer.
As part of the program, 89-year-old Wanda of Saginaw received a new washer and dryer to replace her 40-year-old units that consumed excess electricity and added unwanted heat to her home. Wanda, who is blind, is a client of Meals on Wheels and a customer of TXU Energy. TXU Energy purchased the appliances from Oliver Dyer’s, which delivered and installed the new units.
TXU Energy is an active member of the communities it serves and maintains partnerships with social service agencies, collaborates with community leaders and operates TXU Energy Aid, the largest bill-payment assistance program among competitive retail electricity providers in the U.S.
