Get paid to help reduce strain on the grid and keep carbon emissions and energy costs low for everyone.

Key Features

Demand response helps relieve strain on the electrical grid by telling participating customers to reduce their energy use at times of peak demand. This extends the life of grid infrastructure and reduces the need for replacements and repairs, keeping energy costs low. Times of peak demand are also when carbon emissions are highest because they require additional power generation from dirtier fuels. By participating in demand response, your business can earn incentives for helping reduce carbon emissions and keep energy costs low. 

Step 1

Get started by learning more about ways to participate and incentives offered by your utility:

Eversource ConnectedSolutions

Step 2

Once enrolled, your utility will send out notifications when a peak demand event is expected. All you have to do is reduce your energy use during that period. This can be done manually by doing things like shutting off lights or shifting processes, automatically through a building management system, controlled device, or discharging storage such as a battery, or with the help of a curtailment service provider. Contact Eversource for more information on eligible participation strategies.

Step 3

At the end of the season, in most cases summer or winter, your utility will calculate your incentive, often based on how much you reduced your energy use during events, and sends you a check.

Commercial, industrial or municipal customers of all sizes are eligible to participate.

Smart energy use is not just about how much you use, but when you use it. You could earn rewards for using your smart devices to help lower peak demand, which reduces strain on the grid and keeps carbon emissions and energy costs low for everyone.

Key Features

Demand response helps relieve strain on the electrical grid by making small adjustments to Wi-Fi connected devices to reduce energy use during times of peak demand. These adjustments have little to no impact on comfort, but by bringing together the power of thousands of devices we can make a big difference.

Lowering demand helps extend the life of grid infrastructure and reduces the need for replacements and repairs, keeping energy costs low. Times of peak demand are also when carbon emissions are highest because they require additional power generation from dirtier fuels. By enrolling your eligible Wi-Fi connected devices, you can earn incentives for helping reduce carbon emissions and keep energy costs low for everyone.

Up to $1,500

Efficient and environmentally friendly, geothermal heat pumps use the stable, even temperature of the earth to heat and cool your home.

Key Features

A geothermal heat pump takes advantage of the earth’s constant temperature to provide highly efficient heating and cooling. In the winter, fluid circulating in underground pipes carries the earth’s heat to your home, where it is concentrated to provide heating. In the summer, the process is reversed and heat from your home is carried back to the earth through the pipes to provide cooling.

A few feet below the earth’s surface, the ground temperature remains fairly stable through the year, ranging from 45 degrees in the North to 70 degrees in the South. Ground temperatures, like those in a cave, are warmer than the air above in the winter and cooler than the air in the summer. A geothermal heat pump taps these conditions, carrying energy through a series of fluid-filled copper or plastic pipes installed underground. This allows the geothermal heat pump to provide space heating and cooling. Some systems can also heat water.

According to studies, ENERGY STAR®-certified geothermal heat pumps can reduce energy costs by 20 to 70 percent. Approximately 70 percent of the energy used in a geothermal heat pump system is renewable energy from the ground. The systems use a small amount of electricity to operate the heat pump, ground loop pump and distribution fan or pump.

A geothermal heat pump is a reliable, low-maintenance and environmentally friendly heating and cooling choice. It operates safely and quietly, with no combustion, direct emissions or exposed outdoor equipment, such as a fuel tank.   Because it is mechanically simple and all exterior equipment is below ground, protected from the weather, maintenance costs are often lower than other heating and cooling systems.

How We Help

We make it affordable to install a geothermal heat pump system with rebates of $750 per ton for customers who heat with electric or natural gas and up to $1,500 per ton for customers who heat with fuel oil or propane for qualifying systems. Total rebate amount not to exceed $10,000 per home

Call 877-WISE-USE (877-947-3873) for more information.

Rebate applications for 2020 rebates are being accepted and processed for payment. Please submit your 2020 rebate within the prescribed timeframe on the rebate form. Please contact Eversource or United Illuminating at 877-WISE-USE with questions.

  • A closed loop circulates fluid through an underground field. The loop is enclosed in vertical and/or horizontal trenches.
  • Single or multiple pumps, fans and compressors provide heating and cooling.
  • A distribution system, typically ductwork, carries air throughout the home to maintain an even temperature.

Natural Gas Water Heating Rebate

 
Type
Business
 
Category
  • Gas Water Heating
  • New Construction or Major Renovation
  • Process Equipment
  • Rebates

With efficiencies of up to 85 percent or more, installing high-efficiency natural gas water heating equipment is a smart way for businesses to save gas and cut energy costs. Rebates let you enjoy the energy-saving benefits without paying a premium price.

Key Features

When it comes to high-efficiency natural gas water heating equipment, you have two great choices. A high-efficiency domestic storage unit provides better insulation, heat traps and more efficient burners than traditional models. An on-demand (tankless) domestic water heater provides hot water when you need it without the use of a storage tank. Both are capable of reaching thermal efficiencies of 85 percent or more.

With an on-demand, or tankless water heater, the gas burner is activated by the flow of water whenever a hot water faucet is turned on. The water heater delivers a constant supply of hot water until the faucet is turned off. No water is stored, so standby heat losses are low. These water heaters can be installed centrally or at the point of use.

Commercial water heaters can consume a considerable amount of energy, accounting for about 16 percent of the total energy load in food service and health care facilities and more than 30 percent in hotels. Upgrading to a higher-efficiency water heater can result in recognizable energy savings.

The Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund enables you to install high-performance natural gas water heating equipment without a premium price. Rebates for qualifying equipment make it affordable to save energy and improve comfort and performance. Whether you’re replacing old equipment or installing it in new construction, you'll save money up front.

Eversource and UI are introducing a new initiative, Sustainable Office Design (SOD), to deliver integrated technical solutions for the leased commercial office market. The SOD program promotes and offers incentives for well‐thought-out, innovative, and controls‐rich lighting designs for tenant improvement (TI) projects. Please see the SOD one pager for a program overview.

Benefits of Program Elements to Building Owners/Tenants:

  1. Simple and predictable $1/square foot (sf) incentive for budgeting and planning purposes
  2. Opportunity to overcome building owner/tenant split-incentive with utility incentive that can be assigned to the stakeholder that pays for the TI fit-out
  3. Quick 1-month turnaround application review timeline that aligns with TI projects
  4. Energy savings from pre-approved lighting and controls performance targets
     
Technical Design Criteria for SOD Incentive: Resulting Benefits from SOD:
  • Minimum Space Requirement: 7,500 sf
  • Open Office Component: ≥40 percent
  • Partition Heights: ≤48 inches
  • Lighting Power Density: ≤.60 watts/sf
  • Control Density: ≤250 sf/control point
  • Higher Energy and Operational Savings
  • Contributes to LEED and ENERGY STAR Certification
  • Shows Leadership in Sustainability Goals
  • Higher Tenant Productivity & Satisfaction
  • Higher Building Occupancy & Rental Rates

Benefits of Program Elements to Designers:

  1. Helps prevent value-engineering of efficient lighting and control systems
  2. Flexible approach enables creativity in design and does not limit technology options - a target level of performance must be met, but the means of doing so is not prescribed
  3. Quick turnaround of application review
  4. Offers competitive advantage to design firms who bring SOD incentive dollars to prospective clients
  5. Provides a Lighting Designer Incentive equal to 20 percent of the total incentive amount (up to $15,000)*
