Such a movement is already under way in Connecticut, spearheaded by the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund. They offer financial incentives and educational programs to encourage homeowners, companies, municipalities, and other institutions to support renewable energy and lead the nation toward a brighter energy future.

Incentives and Rebates
Created to address Connecticut’s rapidly growing energy needs and costs, the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund offers residents everything from incentives to replace energy-wasting appliances with newer, more efficient models, to rebates on energy-saving lighting products and air conditioners. For businesses, there are even more innovative programs to maximize energy efficiency, lower operating costs and improve productivity, all to keep Connecticut employers competitive – and in Connecticut.
Energy Assessments and Improvements
The Home Energy Solutions (HES) program, supported by the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund, is an innovative solution to reducing your home’s energy bill. An authorized contractor will perform an energy assessment, make on-the-spot improvements, including caulking and sealing of critical air leaks, and, depending on your eligibility, provide exclusive money-saving rebates on appliances, HVAC systems and insulation.
Additional Resources Provided by WEC Members
Capital for Change can help you finance energy-saving improvements with low interest loans made possible through sponsorship by the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund in partnership with the Eversource, the United Illuminating Company (UI), Southern Connecticut Gas Corporation, and Connecticut Natural Gas Company.
