How Does the Program Work?

1. SBEA-authorized contractors work throughout the state. Green Earth Energy has been selected by Eversource and UI and is fully trained in how the program works. If you have not been contacted directly by Green Earth Energy and are interested on Energy-Efficiency upgrades within the SBEA program, please provide your CONTACT information. 


2. Once Eversource or UI determines that you are eligible for the program, Green Earth Energy will call you to schedule a site visit.


3. During the visit, Green Earth Energy will conduct an energy assessment of your facility at no cost to you. This assessment will be reviewed by Eversource or UI and if accepted, Green Earth Energy will present a proposal to you. This proposal will include all practical energy-efficiency measures, the complete costs and estimated energy savings, along with available SBEA program incentives and your financing options. 


4. Once the paperwork has been signed, your project will begin within 30 days. The SBEA program incentives will offset a portion of the cost of all eligible measures.


5. Interest-free financing for the balance of the project is available for qualified customers. The financed amount appears on your monthly electric bill, allowing you to make just one monthly payment for both your SBEA loan and your electric bill.


THE FINANCIAL INCENTIVES WILL HELP GET YOUR PROJECT COMPLETED THE RIGHT WAY, THE FIRST TIME. THE ENERGY-SAVING BENEFITS WILL CONTINUE ON, YEAR AFTER YEAR.
