The Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund, in partnership with The Connecticut Light & Power Company and The United Illuminating Company, announced yesterday the winners of its eighth annual eesmarts™ student contest for students in grades K-12.  

The ceremony was held in the Old Judiciary Room of the Connecticut State Capitol and attracted over 120 students, parents and energy efficiency supporters in celebration of the students’ hard work and efforts to raise awareness of energy efficiency, and clean/renewable energy technologies.  

DEEP Commissioner Dan Esty said, “The eesmarts™ statewide initiative for students K-12 plays an important part in stimulating the thinking of young people, who, after all, will be the key to developing the energy solutions of the future.”
