Avon, CT - On Monday, July 29 at 6:30 p.m., the Town of Avon will host a presentation on residential energy-saving programs at the Avon Free Public Library, 281 Country Club Road. The presentation is free of charge and open to the public.
Avon recently joined more than 60 other Connecticut municipalities that have signed the Clean Energy Communities pledge, committing to reduce municipal building energy consumption by 20 percent by 2018, and to voluntarily purchase 20 percent of its municipal electrical needs from renewable sources by 2018. Connecticut Light and Power (CL&P) and the Clean Energy Finance & Investment Authority (CEFIA), the Clean Energy Communities program administrators, will work with Avon to help achieve these goals.
For the presentation, residents and businesses will have the opportunity to learn more about the energy-saving and renewable energy programs available to them. They will also learn about how participation in these programs helps Avon’s overall participation in Clean Energy Communities by earning the town points towards energy efficiency and renewable energy rewards. The town of Avon has already earned its first $10,000 Bright Idea Grant which will be used to pay for the installation of a high-efficiency HVAC unit at Avon Town Hall.
Representatives from CL&P and Energy Efficiencies Solutions, an energy-efficiency services company, will discuss the popular residential program, Home Energy SolutionsSM , designed to help people save money on their energy bills.
For those who sign up, Home Energy Solutions specialists will come to your home or apartment and provide energy improvement services which include locating and professionally sealing critical air leaks, replacing up to 40 incandescent lights with energy-saving bulbs and insulating hot water pipes.
While these services are valued at an average of $1,000, the cost for the HES service is only $75 for homes heating with electricity or natural gas, $99 for homes heated with fuel oil and propane, and is free for those who meet income eligibility guidelines.
Following the presentation, guests will have the opportunity to ask the experts any questions they have, and refreshments will be served.
