Green Your Budget with Smart Energy
Add some green to your program budgets – and do your part for a clean energy future – by reducing your energy costs. Energy-saving improvements can yield immediate cost savings that you can apply to your core mission. Renewable energy improvements can generate electricity or heat and 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 serve the public better. 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 Can 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.
