Clinton, CT - On Thursday, September 26 and Saturday, September 28 the Town of Clinton will host presentations on residential energy saving programs at the Henry Carter Hull Library, 10 Killingworth Turnpike. The presentations are free of charge and open to the public.
Clinton recently joined more than 70 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 & Power (CL&P) and the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority (CEFIA), the Clean Energy Communities program administrators, will work with Clinton to help achieve these goals.
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 how participation in these programs helps Clinton’s overall participation in the Clean Energy Communities program by earning the town points toward energy efficiency and renewable energy rewards. The town of Clinton currently has 72 out of 100 points needed for its first grant.
Representatives from CL&P, New England Smart Energy and Energy Resource Group will discuss the popular Home Energy Solutions? program, designed to help people save money on their utility 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 Home Energy Solutions service is only $75 for homes heating with electric 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 questions. Light refreshments will be served.
