North Branford Patch: What's new in your department? 
Luisa Breen, Director of Social Services: Operation Fuel begins on Dec. 3 for those that have utilized all of the Energy Assistance benefits and have a household gross income of up to 60 percent of state median income ($31,816 for 1 person). 

Also, Governor Dannel P. Malloy today announced that $3 million in additional energy efficiency incentives are now available for residents and businesses replacing furnaces, boilers, hot water heaters and refrigerators as a result of damage from Storm Sandy.“Many of the homes and businesses affected by Storm Sandy will be replacing damaged appliances, and heating and cooling equipment,” Governor Malloy said. “This unfortunate situation does, however, provide a unique opportunity to help property owners improve, rather than just repair, their properties by making energy efficiency investments that will save them money for years to come.”The incentives will apply for replacement of equipment with more energy efficient models between October 29 and December 31. The deadline for applications for the incentives is December 31, 2012.Anyone seeking information about the various energy efficiency incentives or financing options available for replacing or repairing equipment should call the Connecticut Energy Information Line at 1-877-WISE-USE (1-877-947-3873).
