Connecticut Light & Power - Small Business Energy Advantage Program

May 04, 2010


Through the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund, Connecticut Light and Power (CL&P) Small Business Energy Advantage Program is a combined rebate and loan program offered to some of CL&P's business and industrial customers for making energy efficiency improvements to their facilities. Business customers with an average 12-month peak demand between 10 kW and 200 kW qualify, and while all industrial customers within that range are eligible, CL&P prefers industrial customers with loads below 50 kW. Municipal and governmental facilities are also eligible. A contractor conducts an energy assessment of the facility and submits a proposal of possible energy-efficiency measures, estimated energy savings, customer incentives, and financing options. Once approved by CL&P, exact rebate amount is determined. In addition to the rebate, the remaining cost of the project can be paid off in the form of a zero interest loan directly from CL&P paid on the monthly utility bill.
