WEST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — How would you like to save hundreds of dollars a year on your energy bill? That’s an easy one — of course.

Some homes and businesses in West Haven are doing just that by becoming more energy efficient and switching to natural gas. Energize West Haven is raising awareness of the benefits of converting to natural gas.

Officials from Energize Connecticut say changing from oil to natural gas is not only cheaper, but it’s also better for the environment. 8,000 people in West Haven have already made the switch.

“Certainly we want to cut our energy bills any way we can,” said Roddy Diotaleevi, senior director for UIL Holdings Corporation. “Certainly natural gas is a perfect way to do that’s less than half the cost of home heating oil.”
