The agency is also committed to playing a positive role in rebuilding Connecticut’s economy, creating jobs, fostering a sustainable and prosperous economic future for the State.

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.
