Senior Services Plus, Inc. (SSP) in Alton, IL is a nonprofit agency established to help enrich the lives of older adults through programs and services that encourage independent living and wellness. In collaboration with Ameren Illinois, Leidos and Resource Innovations, SSP offers no-cost energy efficiency installations to at-risk senior citizens who own their homes and are at or below 200% of the poverty level in Madison, Jersey and St. Clair counties in Illinois. After the installation of energy-saving products, SSP staff take the time to educate seniors on how to best utilize their new equipment, so they are getting the best energy savings possible. In addition to at-home education for the residents, SSP recently opened an energy efficiency room dedicated to teaching seniors the benefits of energy efficiency products.
