Your Partner in Energy Savings

The United Illuminating Company through the Energy Efficiency Fund, an Energize Connecticut partner, provides commercial, industrial and municipal customers with a variety of energy-saving programs.  These programs offer financial incentives to offset the premium cost of purchasing and installing energy-efficient equipment. Energy efficiency is a proven way for companies, large and small, to help reduce their operating costs.


Electric energy efficiency programs have been integrated with Connecticut’s natural gas energy efficiency programs, and now businesses can benefit from these fully integrated programs to help companies reduce their total energy usage.

Covidien, a global leader in healthcare products, received NEEP’s Connecticut State Champion Business Leader Award for Energy Efficiency. Over the past six years, Covidien’s North Haven facility worked closely with energy experts at UI to identify cost-effective ways to make their buildings more energy efficient. This NEEP award recognizes Covidien’s continued efforts to advance energy efficiency in its operations, which have resulted in significant annual energy savings.


Best known for its world-famous BLACK HAWK helicopter, Sikorsky Aircraft supplies airplanes and helicopters to all five branches of the U.S. Armed Services, and sells to commercial and government clients in 40 other countries. Through a comprehensive company-wide approach to efficiency, Sikorsky found ways to save over 71,000 megawatt hours of electricity a year. And what's good for the environment is good for the bottom line: Sikorsky is saving nearly $8 million annually in energy costs.
