Foundations & Charities

Support Your Mission with Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Investing in smart energy is a powerful way to reduce operating costs and direct more resources to your core mission. Energize Connecticut helps you prioritize improvements and connect you with funding resources to make projects affordable.


Smart energy improvements can make your organization more sustainable, freeing up funds for you to serve the public better. Energy-saving improvements can yield immediate cost savings that you can redirect to your core mission. Renewable energy systems can generate electricity or heat and help you lower and stabilize your energy costs over time. Beyond energy cost savings, improving energy performance can enhance the health and comfort of your employees and the people you serve; reduce operations and maintenance costs; and minimize environmental impacts.

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

How We Help

Your charitable 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.
