Energy Efficiency Assistance for Low-Income Households
Cutting Your Home’s Energy Bill is Just a Call or Click Away
The Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund, in partnership with Connecticut Light & Power, The United Illuminating Company, Yankee Gas, Connecticut Natural Gas and Southern Connecticut Gas, supports the Home Energy Solutions (HES) program. The HES program provides you, the homeowner or renter, with an energy assessment performed by a utility-authorized contractor.

A modest fee is collected at the time of service and your income may be eligible for a free energy assessment. The HES program includes:
