United Illuminating Company expecting stimulus dollars for energy efficiency

NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT - The United Illuminating Company (UI) signed a commitment letter with the Connecticut Office of Policy and Management as a requirement to receive $2.3 million in federal funding from the economic stimulus package.

“This is great news for our customers, as the funds will go directly into supporting the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund programs we manage,” said UI’s Vice President of Client Services Anthony Marone. “We are committed to offering our customers the best services and resources available, and these funds will be used to help ensure that more of our customers can become more energy efficient.
