FAIRFIELD - There?s a new opportunity for homeowners in Fairfield to make their homes more energy efficient.

Rep. Jim Himes, Fairfield First Selectman Ken Flatto and representatives from United Illuminating unveiled a new program Wednesday that will offer free energy audits to 1,500 homes in Fairfield.

United Illuminating will conduct the audits with a portion of Fairfield?s federal stimulus money.

The audits will include checking homes for air leaks, old appliances and inefficient light bulbs. It will also identify opportunities for energy efficiency tax incentives.

Only Fairfield residents who are 18 years or older and United Illuminating customers are eligible.
