Leverage Efficiency, Maximize Impact

Investing in energy-saving improvements can be a powerful way to reduce operating costs and direct more resources to your core mission. Renewable energy improvements can generate electricity or heat that can help you lower and stabilize your energy costs over time. Energize Connecticut helps you prioritize improvements and connects you with funding resources to make projects affordable.


Smart energy improvements can make your organization more sustainable, freeing up funds to better serve the public. Energize Connecticut’s partners are ready to work with you to identify energy-saving and renewable energy opportunities that offer a range of benefits. Beyond energy cost savings, improving energy performance can enhance office health and comfort; reduce operations and maintenance costs; and minimize environmental impacts.

We recognize that many nonprofit organizations operate on a tight budget. Our programs use financial incentive strategies to help you offset the cost of purchasing and installing energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions.

How We Help

Your organization can take advantage of a number of energy efficiency and renewable energy programs funded through the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund and the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority. You can benefit from cash incentives, financing options, and, if you meet peak demand requirements, from the full-service energy efficiency program Small Business Energy Advantage.
