Connecticut residents are eligible for a full weatherization and energy visit offered through a collaboration of the utility companies and state in order to help homeowners save money on their energy bills and increase the efficiency of their homes.
To fund this and other energy efficiency programs, Connecticut residents are currently paying fees on their electric and natural gas bills that go directly towards Energize ConnecticutSM. (These fees are called "Combined Public Benefit" charges and can be found on Eversource, United Illuminating, Connecticut Natural Gas, and Southern Connecticut Natural Gas monthly bills.)
Although all residents contribute to the Energize ConnecticutSM fund through these charges, many homeowners are not aware of the programs and services provided through this initiative.
Participating utility companies are required to use the money collected for this fund to offer Connecticut households access to a variety of energy efficiency services, rebates, and incentives.
All products and services are included for just one low-cost co-payment/participation fee. The participation fee for this service is dependent on home heating fuel.
For homes heating with natural gas or electricity, the co-payment is $149 with no additional costs. The co-payment is $174 for oil or propane heated homes Co-Pay reduced to $75.00 until Jan 31st, 2020. (These fees may be waived for income eligible residents.)
All remaining costs and expenses are covered through Energize ConnecticutSM.
This service, and many other energy efficiency services and incentives, are funded by an existing charge on Connecticut energy bills.
