Connecticut Light & Power - Small Business Energy Advantage Program

April 19, 2011


*Not active: now under Energy Efficiency Fund. Through the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund, Connecticut Light & Power (CL&P) offers the Small Business Energy Advantage Program. The combined rebate and loan program offers CL&P's business and industrial customers efficiency improvement loans and rebates for their facilities. Business customers with an average 12-month peak demand between 10 kW and 200 kW qualify. 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, an 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.
