Branford Clean Energy

The Branford Clean Energy Committee was created by the First Selectman in 2019 to implement energy-related recommendations of Branford’s 2019 Plan of Conservation and Development and the State’s Comprehensive Energy Strategy (2018). The charge of the committee is to lead the Branford community in achieving or surpassing the State of Connecticut greenhouse gas emission reduction targets of 45% below the 2001 level by 2030 and 80% below the 2001 level by 2050.

These goals will be achieved through increased energy efficiency and transition to renewable energy, resulting in improved public health and lower energy costs for the Town of Branford and its residents. The committee provides information to residents, businesses and Town departments, boards and commissions about how to reduce energy use and adopt renewable energy technologies, including helping to connect them to available incentive programs that reduce the initial costs and increase the savings.

Two ongoing projects are:

Branford Business Energy Efficiency

Branford’s Clean Energy Ad Hoc Committee has started the Business Energy Efficiency (BEE) program. The program is a joint effort with Eversource, United Illuminating/ Southern Connecticut Gas (UI), and the Peoples Action for Clean Energy (PACE). BEE has been created to bring energy and financial savings to Branford businesses.

Eversource and UI are administering a fund dedicated to improving the efficiency of their commercial customers.  This fund is distributed on a first come first served basis.  Incentives of up to 80% are available for projects to save energy in:

  • Oil heat
  • Gas heat
  • AC
  • Lighting
  • Refrigeration
  • Manufacturing
