The mission of the Inertia Foundation is to help families that have come upon tough times avoid utility shutoff’s by providing charitable financial assistance to keep their gas and electric services turned on.
Starting in January 2023, the Foundation is offering an Energy Bill Grant to families facing hardships or utility shutoff’s due to non-payment, with an initial launch program that will help pay the bills for one family each month. As the Foundation develops, the program will launch fundraising initiatives and events, and seek business partners, to help keep the power and gas going for as many families as possible.
“Rising utility bills are really affecting families with limited resources,” said
Demorian Linton, Principal Owner of Inertia Resources, Inc. “I’ve been in the
energy business for 16 years and I’ve seen the financial hardship lower
income families face in states like Texas when rates are driven up by low
reserve margins and hot weather. We are launching the Foundation to make
a difference in the communities we serve and ensure that there are
resources available to help local families take care of utility bills they would
not otherwise be able to afford.”
