Do you want to make your home healthier and more efficient? There are many different incentive programs that can help you reach this goal, but it is often time-consuming and confusing to find all the different organizations offering help. The Elm City Green and Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) pulls together local programs into a single convenient sign-up to get you closer to your goal of a green and healthy home.
We are still developing the initiative, but in the meantime we'd like to offer you a preview of some of our programs. Sign up for an energy audit and/or free street tree for in front of your home!
Home Energy Solutions - Home Energy Audit
In partnership with the CT Energy Efficiency Fund and the United Illuminating Company, we are happy to offer free home energy audits to New Haven residents who meet income guidelines through the Home Energy Solutions (HES-IE) program. Unfortunately, we are no longer able to offer free home energy audits to all residents regardless of income. Residents who do not qualify for the HES-IE program can receive a home energy audit for a co-pay of $75. Typical energy savings from an HES audit is $500 over the first two years.
Note: There is now a $75 co-pay for households who do not meet certain income criteria. Please click here for more information about the HES-IE program.
Request a street tree for in front of your home as part of New Haven's commitment to plant 10,000 trees in 5 years. All you have to do is help to water the tree until it takes root!
