Customers of Connecticut Light and Power Company (CL&P) and The United Illuminating Company (UI) can help a regional cancer center when they have an energy-saving home energy assessment done.
Competitive Resources Inc. (CRI) of Wallingford will donate $25 to The Harold Leever Regional Cancer Center in Waterbury for every CL&P and UI customer who mentions the cancer center when they schedule and complete a home energy assessment with CRI by March 31, 2014.
The Leever Cancer Center, which is a joint venture partnership between Saint Mary’s Hospital and Waterbury Hospital, specializes in outpatient cancer care. The center is an independently incorporated, not-for-profit entity. Competitive Resources decided to run the home-energy assessment program to benefit the Leever Cancer Center because one of CRI’s employees was successfully treated there in 2004, according to Scott Hastie, regional manager of CRI.
For a co-pay of $75 for customers who heat with electricity or natural gas and $99 for customers who heat with oil, the home energy assessment provides homeowners with an average of $1,000 in services and installed products that will help make their homes more energy efficient and lower their energy bills by an average of $200 annually.
This energy efficiency service is provided as part of Energize Connecticut’s Home Energy Solutions (HES) program, which is administered by CL&P and UI. Competitive Resources of Wallingford, Conn., is an authorized Home Energy Solutions provider for all participating electric, gas, and municipal utilities in Connecticut.
During the home energy assessment, CRI’s certified technicians will make energy saving improvements that include identifying and sealing air leaks and drafts, installing improved lighting and water-saving devices, and analyzing appliances and insulation.
CL&P and UI customers can schedule an appointment by calling 888-403-3500 or by going to http://www.criprograms.com
CL&P and UI must approve all applications and the offer is subject to the availability of funding from the Energy Efficiency Fund. Utility customers should have their account number available and mention Cancer Center when calling to schedule an energy assessment.
