Cutting Energy Bills and Creating Jobs with Energize CT

Solar jobsI have made it my priority to work with business leaders and develop new strategies to protect our environment, cut down on waste and create new jobs. Energize Connecticut is a great example of this partnership between the state and your local electric and gas utilities that helps you save money and use clean energy. In 2015, more than 978,000 Connecticut residents, business and municipalities took advantage of Energize Connecticut, resulting in savings of nearly $1 billion in lifetime energy costs. Nearly 3,000 businesses became more competitive and sustainable through solutions that improve the efficiency of their facilities and the behavior of the people who work within them. In addition to making Connecticut's energy use more efficient, this initiative has generated 9,258 jobs and avoided lifetime greenhouse gas emissions of over 3.3 million tons. That's about the same impact as removing nearly 787,000 cars from the road for a year.

Energize Connecticut is available for you to use at your home or business. Anyone interested in saving money on their electric bills can visit EnergizeCT.com or call 1-877-WISE-USE. There are many private vendors that will help improve the energy efficiency of a business or residence. Vendors will even come to your home and conduct an energy efficiency assessment, identifying ways to lower your electric bill, including better insulation and the installation of high-efficiency light bulbs. Additionally, you can shop for a private electric supplier to lower the generation portion of their electric bill.
