BERLIN, CT - Starting the week of April 21, more than 340,000 Connecticut Light & Power (CL&P) customers will be automatically enrolled in a new, free energy-saving service called Home Energy Reports, an Energize Connecticut initiative.
The report is designed to help customers assess and track their energy use. It shows customers how their home’s energy use compares to an anonymous group of 100 similarly-sized and equipped homes in their area. The report also includes customized tips for no-cost, low-cost, and long-term investment options to reduce energy use. Additionally, customers can go online and set energy reduction goals, as well as learn more in-depth information about how their home consumes energy.
“CL&P is extending this program broadly because we know that our customers need energy solutions that are customized to their own homes," said CL&P Director of Energy Efficiency Matt Gibbs. “The Home Energy Reports program provides customers with practical information and resources that will help them save energy and money."
An additional 30,000 CL&P customers will also have the opportunity to be enrolled in Home Energy Reports when they participate in Home Energy Solutions? (HES), a convenient in-home service designed to help you save money on your energy bills and make your home more comfortable year round.
A total of 34,000 CL&P customers participated in the Home Energy Reports pilot from 2011 through 2013. The pilot delivered over $1.3 million in total cost savings and approximately 14,350 megawatt hours of electricity savings, which is equivalent to the amount of electricity 900 homes would typically consume in one year. 17,000 customers previously enrolled in the pilot will continue to receive reports either in the mail or via email.
Customers enrolled in Home Energy Reports can choose to opt-out of the program at any time.
