Conservation and Load Management (C&LM)
What is the Conservation and Load Management Plan?
The Conservation and Load Management Plan (C&LM Plan) is an energy efficiency and demand management investment plan that develops programs and initiatives to help Connecticut residents and businesses become more energy efficient.
These programs and services are administered and delivered by the Utilities through Energize CT. To learn about energy-saving opportunities for your home or business, visit EnergizeCT.com.
How does State Energy Efficiency Planning work?
The Plan is updated annually by Connecticut’s electric and gas utilities, with advisory and assistance from the CT Energy Efficiency Board (EEB). DEEP reviews all C&LM Plans and associated budgets in order to achieve cost-effective energy savings across the state.
The Plan is funded by various sources, including a charge on customer energy bills, the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) and the proceeds from C&LM savings sold into the ISO New England Forward Capacity Market.
