GREENWICH, Conn. -- Local residents will get help saving energy and money while supporting the Greenwich Tree Conservancy, through a collaboration between the Town of Greenwich and Eversource.
Now through June 30, a $25 donation will be made to the Conservancy for every homeowner or renter that participates in Energize Connecticut’s Home Energy Solutions program, according to the utility company.
Home Energy Solutions includes a home energy assessment and on-the-spot energy improvements performed by an Eversource-authorized contractor.
The service is worth about $1,000 but costs just $124. The fee is waived for income-eligible residents.
A typical customer saves $200 a year following a Home Energy Solutions assessment and will receive recommendations from their contractor for even more energy savings.
“Participating in Home Energy Solutions will help Greenwich residents save on energy bills year-round, year after year,” Eversource’s energy efficiency spokesman Enoch Lenge said.
“As we prepare for another change in season, recommendations from this energy assessment will ensure that your home is comfortable through the winter and beyond. Additionally, Home Energy Solutions delivers water conservation measures that can save an average home 1,000 gallons of water per year.”
Home Energy Solutions includes:
- Sealing around doors, windows, floor joists, and any other areas where air can escape, a $600 value.
- Provide and install energy-saving light bulbs, including LEDs and CFLs
- Health and safety tests on heating and cooling equipment
- Provide and install water-saving showerheads and faucet aerators, and hot water pipe wrap
- A report detailing your home’s performance before and after the changes that include educational tips and recommendations on how to further reduce home energy costs
- Information on rebates and financing for additional upgrades including insulation, windows, appliances, and heating and cooling equipment as applicable
“The Home Energy Solutions campaign fits nicely into our Conservation Commission’s work on energy efficiency by providing Greenwich residents the opportunity to save money on their utility bills and more importantly, conserve energy,” said Greenwich First Selectman Peter J. Tesei.
“We hope that this campaign, which also benefits the efforts of the Greenwich Tree Conservancy, will educate residents on the different types of energy efficiency improvements that can be made in their homes.”
