Following energy issues in the state of Connecticut and beyond.

Some bedtime reading....

Want to know where some of that surcharge money on your utility bills goes? Then cozy up with the 36-page booklet the state released recently that details how money from the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund (CEEF) was spent in 2008.

Among the highlights of the booklet:

- Programs implemented through the CEEF resulted in $774 million worth of lifetime savings for Connecticut ratepayers.
- CEEF programs assisted 11,213 low-income families last year, resulting in annual energy savings of more than $3.1 million.
- Nearly 2,000 small businesses saw over $8 million in annual savings from CEEF programs in 2008.
- Last year, CEEF programs supported approximately 1,500 non-utility jobs in the energy efficiency industry.

Okay, so the CEEF booklet may not be a scintillating a read as the latest Dennis Lehane novel. But it’s your money that going into the fund, so you owe it to yourself to take a look at the booklet.
