GreenStar Energy Solutions
The ongoing Gulf environmental disaster should serve as a reminder to all Americans that ‘waste not, want not’ starts at home. Connecticut’ s Home Energy Solutions (HES) program (described below) can help you save energy at home during the summer cooling season and beyond.
HES is a great first step towards making CT homes energy efficient. Connecticut's Energy Efficiency Programs are funded by a Charge on Customer energy bills. The Programs are designed to help customers manage their energy usage and cost. It’s very simple, call a HES provider to schedule a half day diagnostics and weatherization visit for your home. During the visit your home will be air sealed, ducts sealed, re-lamped with up to 25 high quality CFL’s, and retrofit with water conservation fixtures and pipe insulation.
Additionally, a certified Building Analyst will provide you with a detailed energy evaluation of your home. You will most likely be eligible to receive thousands of dollars in additional rebates for insulation, Energy Star appliances, and AC improvements, and more.
Your home will be more energy efficient and comfortable immediately and you will have a roadmap, subsidized financing and cash rebates for deeper energy improvements. There is a $75 co-pay collected at the time of visit but keep in mind the weatherization alone is worth more than $700. Member Green Star Energy Solutions is one such participating HES provider, call 203-744-1144 ext. 11, or visit www.GoGreenStar.com for more information.
