Community Partnership Initiative Overview

Our Community Partnership Initiative (Partnership) seeks to leverage the local knowledge, trusted relationships, and experience of local community groups, nonprofit organizations, and municipalities who are committed to raise awareness and measurable participation in the Sponsors’ Home Energy Solutions, Home Energy Solutions – Income Eligible, residential rebates, and Small Business Energy Advantage energy efficiency programs within their own communities.

Together, the Connecticut electric and natural gas utilities (Eversource, United Illuminating, Connecticut Natural Gas, and Southern Connecticut Gas), as Sponsors of Energize Connecticut, are committed to work with community outreach groups affiliated with a municipality, such as Energy Task Forces and community outreach groups unaffiliated with a municipality. Our goal in working together is to familiarize residents and businesses with the Sponsors’ energy efficiency programs and offers to increase energy efficiency engagement and program participation across the state.

Through the Partnership, we seek to emphasize outreach to the following select groups: customers within a distressed municipality or Environmental Justice Census Block Groups, residents with limited English proficiency, customers who qualify for Home Energy Solutions - Income Eligible, renters in single family homes or multifamily buildings up to 4 units, and small businesses. The Partnership does not replace current and future residential and small business marketing in Connecticut by the Sponsors, but rather aims to provide another layer of marketing and outreach to customers in the select groups mentioned above.
