New Haven area communities get stimulated

Seven New Haven area communities are getting $3.38 million of the $24 million in federal stimulus money coming to Connecticut for energy efficiency projects at both the state and local level, Gov. M. Jodi Rell said Friday.

Hamden, Milford, New Haven, Shelton, Stratford, Wallingford and West Haven are the area communities getting the money from the feds. Here’s the breakdown in terms of how much money the communities will be receiving:

- Hamden: $531,500.
- Milford: $536,100.
- New Haven: $1,263,500.
- Shelton: $175,800.
- Stratford: $208,900.
- Wallingford: $197,500.
- West Haven: $471,600

The money will be used for a variety of projects, including energy audits, retrofits, transportation programs that conserve energy, greenhouse gas reduction, development of energy efficient building codes and geothermal building systems. Communities can also use the money to create a financial incentive program for energy improvements, according Rell.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for towns and cities to make investments that build on our long-term goals for a cleaner environment while creating jobs at the local level,” Rell said.
