The Southern Connecticut Gas Company (SCG) is currently experiencing overwhelming demand for our Commercial and Industrial energy efficiency programs in the SCG service territory. Due to the extreme program popularity, the SCG budgets for these programs are severely constrained. In an effort to mitigate the impacts on our customers, we will be approving natural gas energy efficiency projects on a "case by case" basis or as funds become available. This "case by case" review will be applied to all Energy Conscious Blueprint, Energy Opportunities, Small Business, and Operations & Maintenance projects as well as any rebates.
Customers considering a project and seeking SCG gas energy efficiency incentives should submit the project in a timely manner. The project will go through a thorough review and approval process by SCG representatives. Once the project is reviewed, it will be determined whether funds are still available. If funds are available, a Standard Agreement or Letter of Agreement will be signed by The United Illuminating Company (The Southern Connecticut Gas Company) management and forwarded on for signature. This agreement must be signed within 30 calendar days by the customer (or their representative). Please be advised that in situations where the customer has not signed the SCG portion of the agreement within the 30 day period, UI (SCG) may opt to rescind the incentive proposal per the agreement.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Southern Connecticut Gas is partnering with the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund, an Energize CT partner, to provide commercial, industrial and municipal customers with a variety of energy-saving programs. These programs offer financial incentives to offset the premium cost of purchasing and installing energy-efficient equipment. Energy efficiency is a proven way for companies, large and small, to help reduce their operating costs.
Natural gas energy efficiency programs have been integrated with Connecticut’s electric energy efficiency programs, and now businesses can benefit from these fully integrated programs to help companies reduce their total energy usage.
Energy Conscious Blueprint:
A program for new construction, planned remodeling, major renovations and new equipment. This program captures electric and natural gas savings when they are most cost effective – at the planning stage.
This program helps businesses and municipalities maximize electric and natural gas savings during retrofits to lighting, motors and controls, HVAC equipment, water heaters, commercial cooking equipment and more.
Operation and Maintenance Services:
This program helps businesses identify and implement energy-saving maintenance procedures and enhancements.
Food Service Equipment Rebate Program:
