Through the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund, rebates are available for commercial, industrial or municipal customers of Connecticut Natural Gas Corporation, Southern Connecticut Gas Company, or Yankee Gas Services Company that are on a firm gas rate. Three programs: Energy Opportunities, Operations and Maintenance and Energy Conscious Blueprint are available to help customers achieve their energy saving goals. The Energy Opportunities program focuses on helping customers replace outdated and inefficient equipment with newer and more efficient models. The Energy Conscious Blueprint program encourages customers to factor in energy savings measures when laying out plans for new construction projects. Finally, the Operation and Maintenance Services program ensures that energy efficient improvements are not wasted by providing technical support and training for energy efficient systems and equipment. Incentives vary by size and equipment and according to which of the three programs energy saving projects are classified under; consult the program web site for further details and specific project requirements.

*Low-cost equipment replacement financing is available to customers who make equipment, insulation or air sealing upgrades while renovating as a result of Hurricane Sandy damage. Additionally, $3,000,000 in short-term funding has been made available for residents and businesses replacing furnaces, boilers, hot water heaters and refrigerators as a result of damage from Hurricane Sandy.
