What is EnergizeCT?

Energize Connecticut ("Energize CT") is an initiative dedicated to empowering Connecticut residents to make smart energy choices, now and in the future. It is an initiative of the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund, the Connecticut Green Bank, the State, and your local electric and gas utilities. The initiative has funding support from a charge on customer energy bills.

Home Comfort Practice is an authorized contractor of Energize Connecticut, which provides rebates and financing services for energy-efficient home improvements. As such, we recognize the significance of getting a comprehensive energy audit to assess energy needs and efficiency of homes in Stratford, CT.

The Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund is supported by all Eversource and United Illuminating customers on their electricity bills through the Combined Public Benefits Charge; and by Connecticut Natural Gas, and Southern Connecticut Gas Company and Eversource customers through a conservation charge included in their rates. The legislation creating the Energy Efficiency Fund and Board can be found at: Public Acts 11-80 Section 33 and 13-298 Section 16.
