Bridgeport residents are advised that local energy efficiency vendors will be canvassing city neighborhoods from July 31 through Aug. 25, 2017, promoting the financial benefits of the Home Energy Solutions – Income Eligible program as part of the Energize Connecticut initiative. 

Home Energy Solutions – Income Eligible is a no cost, comprehensive energy assessment for residents meeting certain income requirements. On average, participating customers save $250 on their annual energy bill.

This program provides approximately $1,000 worth of weatherization services such as:

Duct and air sealing throughout your home

Installation of ENERGY STAR® certified LED light bulbs

Hot water pipe wrapping 

Installation of water-saving products such as low-flow showerheads and faucet aerators

Educational tips for further reductions 

Incentives and financing options for additional upgrades such as windows, insulation, and HVAC systems

Vendors will visit approximately 15,000 homes across the city. The canvassing will occur Monday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., and canvassers will identify themselves with a clearly visible United Illuminating (UI) contractor badge. UI, a subsidiary of AVANGRID, Inc. (NYSE: AGR), is a partner of the Energize Connecticut initiative. 

The following are the approved contractors conducting this outreach:

HE Energy Solutions

Better Building Performance, LLC

Gulick Building and Development, LLC
