As a partner of the Energize Connecticut initiative, The United Illuminating Company (UI), along with the Connecticut Food Bank, is providing LED light bulbs and educational energy efficiency materials at food pantries within UI territory over the next month. These outreach efforts will encourage CT Food Bank patrons to replace their old incandescent light bulbs with ENERGY STAR® LEDs and take additional steps to make their homes more energy efficient by participating in the Home Energy Solutions — Income Eligible (HES-IE) program.
“UI strives to assist Connecticut residents in making the best use of its energy efficiency programs to help reduce their energy bills,” said Elizabeth Murphy, senior program manager, The United Illuminating Company. “Partnering with the Connecticut Food Bank allows us to reach those most in need. We will provide these families with energy saving information, and can potentially assist them in improving the overall comfort of their home while reducing their energy bills. And that’s important.”
