The Neighbor to Neighbor Energy Challenge is a community energy savings program currently being implemented in 14 towns across the state of Connecticut. It builds on the state’s existing track record of commitment to clean energy, as evidenced by the Connecticut Clean Energy Communities campaign.
Neighbor to Neighbor challenges Connecticut residents to take energy efficiency actions that will save money, reduce wasted energy and put $150 million back into the local economies over the life of the program. The campaign is administered by a coalition of organizations led by the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund, including SmartPower, Earth Markets, Student Conservation Association, Clean Water Fund, MIT, EMpower Devices, Mobile Genuis and Snugg Home, and is made possible by a made possible by a $4.17 million Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant from the U.S. Department of Energy.
Over three years, Neighbor to Neighbor will engage residents and help them reduce their energy use by 20 percent.
