Litchfield Hills provides incentives to regional businesses which invest in energy efficient or renewable energy improvements. Businesses located in 11 towns throughout the region are eligible to participate in the Business Energy Efficiency Program (BEEP). Eligible communities include Barkhamsted, Colebrook, Goshen, Hartland, Harwinton, Litchfield, Morris, New Hartford, Norfolk, Torrington and Winchester.
Owners of existing commercially owned structures in these municipalities may participate. Private, non-profit organizations that serve regional economic development interests are also eligible to receive incentives. Incentives of up to $16,000* are intended for improvements to building insulation, window replacements, weather stripping, lighting upgrades, photovoltaic (PV) systems, and solar thermal installations. Participating customers may begin project after receiving approval from the local BEEP committee and regional BEEP committee. Rebates are available after project financial documentation is reviewed and approved. View the program web site listed above to see program application and brochure with instructions.
