Boston-based Energy Firm Doing Work For Six New Haven-area Towns

Six New Haven area communities have hired SourceOne, a Boston-based energy management company, to achieve energy savings of at least 5 percent in each of the towns.

Branford, Durham, Guilford, Killingworth, Madison and Westbrook hired SourceOne using money from a $250,000 grant from the State Office of Policy and Management. The towns have formed a regional energy commission and applied for the state grant.

SourceOne was selected from a field of seven finalists, according to company officials. The company has a Hartford office to serve its Connecticut clients.

The company will perform the following services for the towns:

- Energy audits.
- Renewable energy assessments.
- Grant/incentive research.
- Short and long term energy conservation projects as well as project planning.

Vincent Martin (shown above), president of SourceOne, said the company will tailor its services "to meet each town’s long-term needs, as well as the requirements of the regional energy commission."

"We have an excellent track record in the New England area, and we are excited by this opportunity,” Martin said.

SourceOne manages more than 850 megawatts of electric power, 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas, and $500 million of utility bill processing.

So Sad,, The towns are looking to save money through energy audits which benefit only the municipal facilites.
The more forward thinking Connecticut towns like Fairfield have used their Federal Grant dollars to offset the small co-pay so the town residents can have a free home energy audit/assessment to help the residents reduce thier energy costs. Far greater benefits as the Connecticut Home Energy Solutions Program (HES) audits actually perform ork in the home and have a far greater impact in reducing the homeowners heating/electric costs.
