Steps to Take Smart Energy Action

Step 1 - Check the “Who is Eligible” tab above to see if you qualify for this no-cost program.


Step 2 - Contact us for an application and we'll walk you through the process.
Renters require their landlord to sign a form giving us permission to perform the energy-saving services. You are responsible for getting your landlord’s signature on the form. 


Step 3 - Your designated utility company will review your application. If you qualify, our representative will contact you to schedule an appointment. If you do not qualify, we will contact you and discuss further options.

(Note: Because of high demand for this program, there may be a waiting list. The program is also subject to available funding and the discretion of the utility companies.)

Step 4 - A Home Energy Solutions technician completes your home energy checkup and basic energy-saving services.


What to expect:

The home energy Assessment begins with important safety tests on your furnace and water heater.
 
Next, Our technician pinpoints drafts and air leaks using a blower-door test. Then they seal the leaks to reduce the drafts.
 
If you have forced hot air or central air conditioning, the technician tests your ductwork to check air flow and seals any major leaks.
 
Our technician may install hot water-saving devices, including low-flow showerheads and faucet aerators, hot water pipe insulation and energy-efficient lighting (subject to program caps).
 
The visit ends with a kitchen table wrap-up. Our technician reviews the work done around your home and discusses any deeper energy-saving measures they plan to install. These may include:
 

      * Insulation


  • ENERGY STAR® certified appliances to replace old, inefficient appliances. This may include refrigerators, freezers and dehumidifiers.

 

  • Gas heating system burner and furnace repairs or replacements (limited to CL&P, CNG and Yankee Gas customers)

 

  • ENERGY STAR certified windows to replace single-pane windows if you use electric heat or gas heat exclusively (Windows may require a co-payment.)


  • The technician give you a Home Energy Solutions program booklet, which shows the areas of your home that were serviced during the visit. It includes information about easy ways to save energy wherever you live, and it contains utility and state resources that can help make your energy bills more manageable.


 If your home qualifies for additional energy-saving measures, then your contractor will install them. A different contractor may do the work, but your technician will make all of the arrangements.

In some cases, your landlord may be asked to pay some of the costs of these deeper energy-saving measures.

Please note Income Eligible customers are not eligible for rebates on appliances.
