The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund
The Clean Energy Fund invests in enterprises and other initiatives that promote and develop sustainable markets for energy from renewables and fuel cells that will benefit the ratepayers of Connecticut.

How We Began
The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CEF) was created by the Connecticut General Assembly in 1998 as part of legislation deregulating electric utilities. CEF began formal operations in January 2000.

How We're Funded
Money to capitalize the Clean Energy Fund comes from a surcharge on consumers' utility bills. Capitalization is expected to be approximately $15 million in 2000 and grow to approximately $120 million in 2005.

How We're Managed
CEF is managed by Connecticut Innovations, Inc., the state's leading investor in high technology. Since 1995, Connecticut Innovations has disbursed more than $58 million in investments and program initiatives. Last year, it posted a return on investment of greater than 20 percent.
