Wilton Go Green is here to help our businesses take the next steps towards a more sustainable community.



The Small Business Energy Advantage (SBEA) program allows qualified organizations (defined as using less than 1,000,000 kWh/year) to participate in a no-cost energy assessment provided by an Eversource-approved contractor.  The contractor will make recommendations for energy-saving improvements and manage the installation of any recommendations chosen for implementation. The choice to implement is entirely up to the business and the cost of the improvements is paid for via rebates, subsidies, incentives and zero-interest on-bill payment plans, allowing the business or building owner to move forward with no out-of-pocket expense. 


To schedule a 30-60 minute, no-cost audit for your business, non-profit organization or commercial property, please contact us at sbea@wiltongogreen.org.

“This summer with the Wilton Go Green SBEA program, my State Farm office received an energy audit, signed a contract for updated lighting and implemented the change in just a few weeks. It was a quick, easy and a straightforward process.  Consequently, our lighting energy use has reduced by 76%, the program will pay for itself and we are benefitting from a more pleasant atmosphere – saving money in the long run."   Karen O’Brien, State Farm Insurance

Commercial Compost Programs 

In Connecticut, 23% of all garbage sent to the incinerator is food waste. Diverting our food waste is a simple, yet impactful step in reducing greenhouse gasses polluting our air and instead puts our food back to the soil as compost where it belongs. Both https://www.blueearthcompost.com and http://www.curbcompost.org provide commercial compost services in Wilton. Contact either company today to learn how your business can feed the Earth, not the Landfill.


CT Green Bank

The Connecticut Green Bank utilizes private sector investors to offer low-cost, long-term financing options for business and residential clean energy projects, including energy efficiency upgrades, solar programs and energy storage solutions. Visit https://www.ctgreenbank.com/ to learn more.


Wilton has opted into C-PACE (Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy), a financing structure funded through the Connecticut Green Bank, which allows commercial building owners to borrow money for energy efficiency, renewable energy, or other green upgrades. The loan is repaid through a special assessment placed on the property tax bill through the Town of Wilton, giving owners a low-cost, long-term financing option.  C-PACE works for nearly any type of commercial property, including manufacturing facilities, offices, retail establishments, houses of worship, nonprofits, and other commercial buildings.

WGG Sustainability in Business Certification

How does a business receive certification?

Businesses who participate are provided an ample list of sustainable practices that they can select from creating healthy work environments for their employees and their surrounding community.

Certification lasts for a two-year period and businesses can participate in one of two levels of the program: a Green Level and Platinum Level. Categories for instituting green practices include energy, education, transportation, water, indoor/outdoor environment, and food service (where applicable).
