CEEF Rebates

Among its several energy-efficiency programs, the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund offers rebates to homebuilders for new energy-efficient homes and for gut rehabs of existing homes. The program is administered by the two largest electric utility companies in Connecticut, Eversource Energy and The United Illuminating Company. The program is renewed annually by the Connecticut Department of Public Utilty Control (DPUC) based on recommendations from the CEEF and the utility companies. The CEEF is funded by charges on the monthly electicity and natural gas bills of Connecticut consumers.

The 2015 program offers several rebates for new and gut-rehabbed homes

  • A HERS Rating Incentive with rebates in the range of $3,000 - $7,000 for a single-family home
  • Bonus incentives for high-performance home certifications including ENERGY STAR, Challenge Home and the National Green Building Standard
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems (up to $1,500 per home)
