The Connecticut Light and Power Company (CL&P) Energy Opportunities Program and Retro Commissioning Program help business, industrial and municipal customers improve the energy efficiency of their existing facilities by offering custom financial incentives (including express rebates, zero or low interest loans, and/or incentive payment based on upgrades completed) on various retrofit possibilities. Although similar programs, Energy Opportunities and Retro Commissioning have slightly different eligibility requirements, which are available on the program websites. For both programs, CL&P energy experts work with customers to identify energy-saving equipment opportunities to consider. Program administrators will prepare a contractual commitment to be signed prior to ordering any equipment, which will detail all the energy-efficiency measures, the estimated energy savings, and the anticipated incentive dollar amount. Once the project is completed and measures have been verified, customers will receive the incentive payment. Eligible customers are commercial, industrial or municipal customers of any size that are on CL&P's commercial or industrial rate, and that are engaged in a retrofit project; new construction is not eligible. For more information visit the program websites or call 1-877-WISE-USE (1-877-947-3873).

A new Comprehensive Initiative is offered through this program. It provides incentives for the installation of efficient equipment in customer facilities. It offers rebates to customers based upon the lesser of 50% of the installed cost, a buy-down of the project to a 2-year payback, or first year of avoided energy costs up to $0.50 per annual kWh and $700.00 per summer peak kW combined. Information can be found on the Energy Opportunities web site listed above.
