About Clean Energy Communities

Clean Energy Communities(CEC) is a nationally-recognized Energize Connecticut program to help cities and towns save energy and increase the installation of renewable energy. To join the program, municipalities pledge to reduce their municipal building energy consumption by 20 percent, attain 20 percent of municipal electricity needs from renewable sources, and take other actions to support the deployment of clean energy by 2018.

Energy experts from Eversource and United Illuminating work with municipalities to develop a Municipal Action Plan to achieve these goals, which includes bench marking the energy usage of municipal buildings – this evaluation of each building’s energy usage is one of the first steps to identifying solutions to reach program goals. We provide municipalities with customized energy solutions and innovative financing options to complete energy efficiency work for the benefit of the entire community.

Public involvement is critical to helping a community reach its energy goals. Once the pledge is signed, residents and businesses that take advantage of Energize CT energy efficiency solutions can help their community earn a grant, ranging from $5,000 to $15,000, which can be used toward a community-selected energy saving project. These “Bright Idea Grants” can be used on a community-selected energy saving project, like the installation of an electric car charging station at town hall or new LED lighting for a school
