Connecticut Home Efficiency Loan Program

 Connecticut Home Efficiency Loan Program.Ct. Energy Efficiency Fund

 

The Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund is offering financing to Connecticut Light and Power and United Illuminating customers who own and occupy a single family, duplex or vacation home. You can borrow between $2,500 to $20,000 for qualifying improvements provided by an approved contractor.  This program ties in with the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund’s Home Energy Solution Program. Visit my previous blog on that at ….  http://activerain.com/blogsview/1748903/connecticut-home-energy-solutions-ct-hes-program-

          This program is designed to encourage comprehensive retrofits, which means reducing heat loss through measures like air sealing, insulation and sealing air ducts, as well as upgrading heating and cooling systems.  If you undertake a comprehensive project you can get 0% interest for loans between $7000 and $20,000 or 2.99% for loans between $2500 and $6999.

If you do single measures, like insulation, hot water heating, air sealing, duct sealing or replace heating and cooling equipment, the interest rate is 2.99% for loans between $2,500 to $20,000

To get started you need to:-

  1.   Have a Home Energy Solutions in-home assessment performed which will help you determine which additional measures you need and also provide rebates for insulation and appliances. The co-pay is just $75 for all CL&P customers and $75 for UI customers heating with electricity or natural gas.  UI customers heating with oil or propane currently have to pay $300.  Visit website for full details and information     http://www.ctenergyinfo.com/dpuc_home_energy_solutions.htm  
  2. Or call Call 1-877-WISE-USE
  3. Visit the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund website for further details on upgrades & loans, step to take, qualifications & applications.               http://www.ctenergyloan.com/

 The Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund is not a “state administered” program. The HES program is administered by utility companies, and Connecticut’s Energy Efficiency programs are funded by a charge on customers of CL&P and UI electric bills. There are only 18 approved vendors who can do the HES program in CL&P territories.

Connecticut Property Tax Mill Rates ~ 2013. 

Connecticut Property Tax Mill Rates.                                                                   July 2010.

The property tax rate is expressed in mills or thousandths of a dollar. A tax rate (mill rate) of 11.74 mills is equivalent to $11.74 of taxes per $1,000 of assessed value. In Connecticut the property assessment is equal to 70% of the fair market value of the property as established by the municipal Assessor. Each town sets its own mill rate; some municipalities have different mill rates for different districts within that town. Assessment dates for property on the Grand List must be assessed by October 1st of the preceding year. So for property taxes due July 1st, 2010 and January 1, 2011 are determined from assessments computed by the town assessor prior to October 1, 2009. Typically the majority of Connecticut towns, real property taxes are payable for the current tax year on July 1st and January 1st, this is the same as the state’s fiscal year. But in some towns payments are made quarterly so check with town hall first.

For Fairfield County, Connecticut here are property Mill rates for individual towns. Information provided by the Connecticut Multiple Listing Service, please verify with each town hall.

Buyers Beware ~ Don’t take closing credit for home repairs.

Buyers Beware ~ Don’t take closing credit for home repairs.

From Pete the Home Inspector in Fairfield County, Connecticut.  See his blog on why after a home inspection the current home owner should have the work done before selling and the buyer not take a credit at closing. Click on link below.
