When the sun is scorching, energy bills increase to beat the heat, leaving renters with an expensive debt. A free webinar series attempts to remedy that.
Renters United Maryland, a coalition working to improve renters’ rights across the state, is hosting a free, four-part webinar series aimed at informing renters how to get lower costs and receive help in paying their utility bills.
