Home Energy Solutions services may include:

  • Seal drafts and cracks
  • Provide and install energy efficient light bulbs
  • Install water saving devices
  • Plus, receive valuable rebates for energy efficent appliances, HVAC and insulation.
  • On average, you'll receive $700 worth of services in one visit. 

How Does the Program Work?

  • Choose one of the following methods to apply:

    • Click here to download a list of CL&P-authorized contractors[PDF:30 KB] . Choose a contractor and call them directly to schedule an appointment.
    • Click here to apply on-line. CL&P will assign a contractor to you. The contractor will call you to schedule an appointment.

Cost is $75.00 for this service.  If this is too much for you to afford, see if you can qualify for CL&P's WRAP program.  Click here for more information.

We understand that you should schedule your home for this service ASAP.  When funds run out, that is the end of the program; however, if your home is already scheduled when this happens, you can still receive services through the Home Energy Solutions - A Service to Help Lower your Energy Bills.

How To Reduce Your Energy Bills / Energy Conservation Begins at Home

Imagine leaving a window open all winter long -- the heat loss, cold drafts and wasted energy! If your home has a folding attic stair, a whole house fan or AC Return, a fireplace or a clothes dryer, that may be just what is occurring in your home every day.

These often overlooked sources of energy loss and air leakage can cause heat and AC to pour out and the outside air to rush in -- costing you higher energy bills.

But what can you do about the four largest “holes” in your home -- the folding attic stair, the whole house fan or AC return, the fireplace, and the clothes dryer?
