Clean Air & Energy
Connecticut has some of our nation's highest energy costs and some of its worst air quality. These high bills place immense financial burden on Connecticut residents and businesses, and air pollution causes significant breathing problems, like high incidents of asthma, for the children in our cities. In addition, our state's greenhouse gas emissions contribute to climate change, the effects of which are already being felt in our communities in the form of stronger storms, hotter weather and impacts on agriculture.
CFE works with the legislature, in the courts, and with municipalities, clean energy businesses and nonprofit partners to implement programs that help reduce energy bills through improved efficiency, to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, and to protect against industries that damage our air quality.
