Energy Prices in CT Are Rising. We Can Help …

The Town of Bethany has partnered with PACE to bring you HeatSmart Bethany. The program helps Bethany residents learn about the three steps to getting energy smart: 1) Improve your home’s energy efficiency by getting a Home Energy Solutions (HES) service from an Energize CT certified technician (just $50 or no-cost for income-eligible residents); 2) Insulate your home and make other improvements to the envelope of the home; and 3) Consider switching your heating and cooling source to an energy efficient heat pump.
