The Energy Opportunities Program is offered by The United Illuminating Company (UI) to any of its commercial, industrial, or governmental customers who are interested in retrofitting their existing building in an energy efficient manner. A retrofit is defined as replacement of existing equipment that is operational and has at least 25 percent of its useful life remaining. UI offers rebates for a wide range of technologies ranging from lighting to refrigeration to HVAC equipment measures. Possible financing is available to qualifying customers. Generally, measures that have a shorter energy payback period are eligible for incentives under this program; technologies that have a longer payback can receive funding under the UI Energy Conscious Blueprint Program.
Customers may also be interested in the Retro-Commissioning Program and the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Program which aim at reducing loads at facilities during peak demand times. These programs may help facilities significantly cut costs through optimizing equipment. Information can be found on the UI web site.
