Home Energy Solutions – Income Eligible Program (HES-IE)

About:

The Home Energy Solutions – Income Eligible (HES-IE), formerly the WRAP program, supported by Energize Connecticut, provides valuable weatherization measures to help renters or homeowners reduce their energy bills by making their home more energy efficient. Such measures will help safely lower electrical usage, reduce home heat loss in winter and prevents heat gain in summer, conserve hot water, and provide energy efficient lighting. The program provides a wide range of energy conservation measures based on a need analysis conducted by trained energy conservation staff. In addition to the HES weatherization services, households may qualify for insulation, and energy-efficient appliances, including ENERGY STAR refrigerators.
