Connecticut Light and Power and the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund offer a program designed to encourage the construction of ENERGY STAR (R) certified homes. The Residential New Construction Program offers incentives targeted at increasing energy efficiency in several important stages in the construction process. Measures eligible for these rebates include insulation, geothermal heating and cooling, HVAC measures, hot water heating, final ENERGY STAR certification, as well as a rebate offsetting the cost of performing a HERS rating. Incentives vary based upon equipment efficiency, HERS scores, and whether dwelling is a single or multi-family residence. All related information can be found on the program application, which is located on the web site listed above. Contact utility before starting construction work to ensure eligibility. No homes are eligible after sheet rock has been applied to residence. Home must achieve all standards provided by the program in order to receive incentives.
