Following our public launch, we have been having smaller launches celebrating the work of our partner community groups. If you are a member of a faith organization, service organization or other community group, we are calling on you to rise to the occasion and join us in the Neighbor to Neighbor Energy Challenge.
Take a minute to clean underneath your fridge and save big on the energy it uses every day.
Did you know that your refrigerator is responsible for up to 11 percent of your home’s total energy use? With Connecticut electricity rates being some of the highest in the nation, we wanted to show you a quick and easy way to bring down your utility bills.
On Thursday, February 7th, 2011 at Eastern Connecticut State University (ECSU), we launched Neighbor to Neighbor Lighting, a new initiative focused on helping Connecticut residents save on their utility bills by switching to energy efficient light bulbs.
Willimantic resident Sheridan Vernon has gone above and beyond the call of energy efficiency. After Sheridan enrolled in the Neighbor to Neighbor Lighting Program, Clean Energy Corps members soon realized Sheridan was unique. By changing just one incandescent light bulb to a three-way CFL, the Corps helped Sheridan achieve 100% efficient lighting in every socket in his home.
