Energy Conservation - Residential
Energy Star® qualified appliances save energy, money, and help protect the environment. Join the national effort to help use energy wisely. Buy appliances that have earned the Energy Star® rating. Only products delivering the highest level of energy efficiency are awarded the Energy Star® from the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U. S. Department of Energy.
Saving energy also saves money. By using energy-efficient products, the average household can save up to $400 per year on utility bills. (Savings are estimated. Actual savings may vary.)
The U. S. EPA says that if just 10% of us used Energy Star® appliances, it would be the carbon dioxide pollution reduction equivalent of planting 1.7 million acres of new trees.

Home Energy Savings Program
The Wallingford Electric Division (WED) has re-opened its Home Energy Savings (HES) program to all WED residential customers who have not participated in the past in the HES program. The WED's designated HES vendor, CMC Energy Services, will provide a high-quality home energy use evaluator along with meaningful energy savings measures based upon the findings of the evaluation.
CMC Energy Services will provide the following services and products, valued at approximately $1,000 during an HES* audit:
- Install up to 25 LED light bulbs
- Blower door testing and air sealing to eliminate leaks
- Duct sealing to reduce duct loss
- Domestic hot water measures such as showerheads and aerators
- Evaluation of attic insulation levels
The HES program is available at no cost regardless of the fuel type used to heat your home.
CMC is an experienced and well-qualified firm that specializes in programs such as the WED HES. CMC has an office in Yalesville and can be reached at 203-294-9677. Residential customers who wish to take part in the HES program should call CMC directly. Please DO NOT CALL THE ELECTRIC DIVISION OFFICES TO SCHEDULE AN HES EVALUATION. ALL HES SCHEDULING IS DONE THROUGH CMC.
The WED encourages all of its residential customers to contact CMC to arrange for a residential energy use evaluation. Funding is limited, and the evaluations will be performed on a first-come, first-served basis, so customers are urged to quickly contact CMC to arrange for thisr home energy evaluation.
