Energy efficiency programs and events part of ongoing Energize Waterbury campaign

Now through September 15, 2013, the City of Waterbury is participating in a comprehensive energy efficiency campaign, called “Energize Waterbury,” as part of the Energize Connecticut initiative. The campaign’s goal is to save residents money through increased participation in Connecticut’s energy efficiency programs, which are administered by Connecticut Light & Power (CL&P).

As part of Energize Waterbury, the City will present a series of energy efficiency workshops, presentations and events over the next several months, all free of charge and open to city residents:
