If you’re a Connecticut resident who is a customer of Connecticut Light & Power and/or Northeast Utilities, you are likely eligible to receive a ton of home energy rebates that can help you achieve a more energy-efficient and cost-effective home. These rebates are a part of Energize Connecticut’s Energy Initiative designed to empower citizens to make the smartest energy choices for their households and local businesses. This program is designed to provide the resources and information necessary to make saving energy easier than ever for individuals, as well as to promote a clean energy future for the state of Connecticut.
Energy Monster is a proud partner and Energize CT contractor. Our goals are to:
- Help explore your home’s layout and HVAC system,
- Determine your home’s specific energy potential, and
- Help you take the necessary actions to improve your household’s energy savings.
All of this begins by taking advantage of Energize CT’s Home Energy Solutions Program, or HES.
About the Home Energy Solutions Program
Through this program, an authorized contractor will perform an energy audit on your home. This involves a whole-house examination to determine where your home loses the most energy. We determine where the most cost-effective solutions should be implemented for increased energy savings. Your Energize CT contractor will test your home’s air ducts for any air leaks; we seal ducts as needed at no extra cost to you.
Your Energize CT contractor will also identify any potential health and safety issues that may arise from faulty wiring or improperly installed HVAC equipment. As an added bonus, you can opt for the installation of no-cost energy-efficient light bulbs, faucet aerators, and low-flow showerheads throughout your home.
Energy Assessment Cost
The retail cost of such a thorough investigation is generally estimated at over $1,000, depending on the size of your house. However, thanks to the HES program, you can work with Energy Monster and receive this energy assessment for just $149. Keep in mind that this price is available for a limited time only.
Energize CT Initiatives
An energy assessment is the ideal stepping stone to a more energy-efficient home and learning where your home can make improvements. After the inspection is completed, you will receive a list of suggested improvements for your home’s specific needs. Energize CT offers a variety of incentives and rebates to help homeowners fund their projects.
Energize CT Heating Loan Program
It gets cold in Connecticut, and your heating bills can rise exponentially during the chilly winter season. To help you offset these monthly bills, this heating loan is designed to promote the installation of more energy-efficient and eco-friendly heating equipment. You can get financing at a 2.99% interest rate for up to $15,000 for the purchase and installation of eligible heating appliances. Repayment is done through a fixed utility bill to make the process easy and affordable. Unlike many government energy programs, you don’t have to be a homeowner to apply. However, you do have to be a CL&P or UI customer at the home that will be getting the equipment installed. Equipment must meet ENERGY STAR ratings or higher for furnaces, boilers, and electric heat pumps.
To learn more, or to schedule a home energy assessment through the HES program, contact Energy Monster today. Our friendly staff will help walk you through the process to help you find the best financial and equipment options that will give you the best energy solution for your Connecticut home or business.
