DECEMBER: Energy Conservation Information and Assistance Kiosks
With the increasing cost of electricity, the City of North Little Rock is actively engaged in conserving energy. It is the City’s aim to disseminate information to the citizens of North Little Rock about the many ways to conserve energy at home.

The Energy Conservation Information and Assistance Kiosks will provide ideas and information on energy conservation, home weatherization, as well as information for assistance on energy bills for those who qualify.

These “information stations” include information from the Electric Department, the State Energy Office, and other reliable energy conservation sources.
