Energize Hamden

Hamden CT, Land of the Sleeping Giant

Named one of the top 100 places in America to live and start a business by Fortune Small Business Magazine, Hamden is uniquely positioned to lead its residents into a Smart Energy Future.

Hamden has been selected as part of the Energize Connecticut initiative to bring comprehensive weatherization, energy and safety services to its residents' doors.

If you are a resident of Hamden this initiative is for you!

Through a partnership of multiple State and utility organizations we are able to service your home for a nominal fee and provide you an opportunity for big savings on your home’s energy use. And all this is made possible by the efforts of The Hamden Energy Use and Climate Change Commission.

Contractors for the Home Energy SolutionsSM program will come to your home to provide immediate improvements as part of the program. The opportunity for even bigger savings exists because the Commission has contracted reduced pricing with insulation, heating and cooling, other contractors and incorporated product rebates from the Energy Efficiency Fund.

Did you know that homes built prior to 1980 are inefficiently insulated? Proper insulation and air sealing can reduce energy costs 20 percent on an annual basis. And the rebates and financing through the Home Energy Solutions program make it easy to save money and improve the comfort of your home.

Additionally, inefficient heating and cooling systems can cost you hundreds of dollars annually. And the difference between oil and gas heating costs are almost double. If you’re on or close to the gas main and ready to switch to gas but are concerned about up-front costs, the good news gets even better. There are special financing options from local lenders and state energy efficiency programs to help you pay for the cost of new equipment.

With loans at attractive rates, you can convert to natural gas if it is available in your area, and purchase the necessary equipment for a low monthly cost – even lower than what you’re paying for oil alone!

The Hamden Energy Use and Climate Change Commission and the contracted energy experts will review and verify that your home fits the criteria to achieve the savings associated with this effort. The Energize Hamden initiative is an opportunity for you to see big savings and improve the comfort and safety of your home.

Hurry - sign-up by October 31, 2013 to take advantage of special insulation pricing, and by October 15, 2013 if you want to switch to gas.
