Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund

The Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund (CEEF) works to advance the efficient use of energy; reduce air pollution and negative environmental impacts; and promote economic development and energy security.

CEEF supports a variety of programs that provide financial incentives to help Connecticut consumers reduce the amount of energy used in their homes and businesses. CEEF programs are reviewed by the Energy Efficiency Board, a group of advisors who utilize their experience and expertise with energy issues to evaluate and consult with Connecticut’s electric and natural gas utility companies on how programs should best be structured for and delivered to Connecticut consumers.

The Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund is supported by all Eversource and United Illuminating customers on their electricity bills through the Combined Public Benefits Charge; and by Connecticut Natural Gas, Southern Connecticut Gas Company and Eversource customers through a conservation charge included in their rates.

The legislation creating the Energy Efficiency Fund and Board can be found at: Public Acts 11-80 Section 33 and 13-298 Section 16.

The legislation creating a conservation and load management fund for municipal electric companies is Conn. Gen. Stat. § 7-233y.
