- Watch the educational videos NOW. Web links available at: www.westhartfordct.gov/cleanenergy
- Schedule a Home Energy SolutionsSM visit. Visit www.EnergizeCT.com/hes or call 877-WISE-USE (877-947-3873). The visit includes energy and equipment assessments plus on-the-spot improvements, such as air sealing, energy-saving light bulbs, and more for a co-pay of $99.
- Install ENERGY STAR® certified LED light bulbs. Did you know? A 60-watt equivalent LED light bulb uses up to 80% less electricity and now costs only $3-4! If you use that light just 2 hours a day, it will pay for itself in 5 months through savings on your utility bill. For an instant discount, look for the Energize ConnecticutSM logo wherever you buy lighting.
- Get a Solar Site Assessment. Visit SolarizeCT.com, GoSolarCT.com, or EnergizeCT.com to get started. The cost of solar has dropped dramatically, and most contractors will do a site assessment for free. Join us in making West Hartford a cleaner, greener community!
