Home Energy Efficiency Program

Russell Library’s Hubbard Room
Saturday, May 4, 2 – 3:30 p.m.

The City of Middletown is helping its residents reduce their energy consumption, save money on their utility bills, and support the Middletown Tree Planting Fund by encouraging participation in the Home Energy SolutionsSM program.

Home Energy Solutions is a convenient home energy improvement service provided by CL&P, UI and the natural gas utilities as part of the Energize Connecticut initiative. The program is designed to help people save money on their monthly energy bills. For those who sign up, utility-authorized energy specialists come to your home or apartment and install energy-efficient products and perform weatherization services. These services include locating and professionally sealing critical air leaks, replacing incandescent lights with energy-saving bulbs and insulating hot water pipes.

The cost for the Home Energy Solutions service is $75 for homes heating with electricity or natural gas, $99 for homes heated with fuel oil and propane, and is free for those who meet income eligibility guidelines. More information on the Home Energy Solutions program will be offered at a free public forum on May 4 at the Russell Library’s Hubbard Room,123 Broad Street, Middletown from 2-3:30 pm.

Middletown is partnering with two Home Energy Solutions vendors, New England Conservation Services and Victory Energy Solutions. For every Middletown resident who signs up for a HES assessment before October 31, 2013, $25 will be donated by these vendors to the Middletown Tree Planting Fund. Middletown’s Urban Forestry Commission manages the city’s tree planting program.

“Our participation in the Home Energy Solutions program is a great opportunity for Middletown residents to save money and energy, and reduce our collective carbon footprint,” said Middletown Mayor Dan Drew.
