As a result of nearly 90 Wilton homeowners participating in the Home Energy Solutions campaign last year, Wilton Go Green recently received a grant of $2,200. For every resident that signed up for the in-home service provided by Eversource and Energize Connecticut, Wilton Go Green received $25 from New England Smart Energy Group and HE Energy Solutions, the companies who participated in the campaign.
During an HES visit, Eversource-certified technicians conduct a detailed evaluation of a home’s energy efficiency. Problems like inefficient lighting or leaks that let heated or cooled air escape are fixed right away. The visit costs $99, but the services received are valued at more than $1,000, according to a press release. The fee is waived for income-eligible residents.
