Water is an important natural resource. We use it everyday at home and at work in so many ways that we take it for granted. However, water is no longer the “sure thing” that it was in the past. We need to reassess our attitude about water and how to conserve it.

With the prospect of continuing increases in energy prices, both the Connecticut state government and the federal government have created incentives to encourage energy conservation.

Connecticut helps homeowners to conserve energy usage and decrease costs through programs that provide audits, retrofits, and alternative/clean energy improvements. C4C offers a variety of loan programs to meet consumer needs, covering improvements ranging from such basics as insulation and heating systems to more advanced products, including solar panels and geothermal systems. The loan programs are administered by Capital for Change, Inc. (C4C) with funding from the Connecticut Department of Housing.  Search their site here, for More info.

CONNECTICUT GREEN BANK – provides loans that support a wide range of energy improvements, a solar lease specifically tailored for low-to-moderate income homeowners, or educational resources and incentives for going solar. Smart-E Loans offer no money down, low-interest financing with flexible terms to help upgrade a home, company, municipality, and other institutions, http://www.ctgreenbank.com/
