New Construction Rebate Program
New construction houses in CL&P and UI territory are currently eligible to obtain rebates for building energy efficient houses. To get these rebates, the builder must hire a HERS rater who will help you through the rebate process. Potential rebates include:
EnergyStar Tax Credits
$500 Insulation Tax Credit for Existing Primary Residence
By adding spray foam insulation to your existing home, you are eligible to receive a tax credit of 10% of the insulation cost up to $500. Anybody can apply for this if the work is done in 2012 or 2013 but expires on 12/31/2013. You can only apply for this credit if the work is being done on your existing primary residence.
Connecticut Home Energy Solutions Program
Home Energy Solutions
Existing homes in Connecticut are eligible to participate in the Home Energy Solutions program offered by the utility programs for a nominal fee of $75-$99. A HES crew, who are BPI certified, will come to your house to perform a blower door test, combustion/appliance test, basic air sealing, and at the end discuss your house’s performance, ways to improve it, and will provide a list of rebates available to help fund the upgrades.
