Eversource has supported CMSC since our beginning, and their investment is a big part of the reason we’ve spent 25 years as the state’s leading downtown resource.

Jack Arsego and Lissette Andino from Eversource Energy were on hand during our 2019 VIBRANT MAIN STREETS Awards Celebration to help us present our Founders Award, presented by Eversource , to recipient Bob Santy.

Eversource Energy  continues to be a major supporter of CMSC and our work in Connecticut’s downtowns, recently providing us with $85,000 in support of our programs and operations.
We’re thrilled to enjoy the backing of a prestigious institution like Eversource. As many of you know, Eversource Energy (then CL&P) established the CT Main Street Program 25 years ago and remains to this day the only private corporation in the country to solely sponsor and administer a statewide Main Street initiative. Eversource has continued to invest in us ever since, even after we became an independent non-profit in 1999, and the fi nancial support and office space they provide has been critical to our success. Because of their generous support, we’ ve been able to teach Connecticut communities how to cultivate great downtowns that foster economic development, grow jobs and businesses, and encourage dynamic places for people to live, work and visit.
In addition to supporting CMSC, Eversource was also recently recognized as a national leader for their corporate citizenship and listed as the #1 energy company on Newsweek ’s list of America’s Most Responsible Companies for 2020. They were also highlighted as one of America’s Most JUST Companies and the top utility by Forbes and JUST Capital.
In addition to these prestigious awards, they are nationally recognized for energy efficiency solutions and successful programs to integrate new clean energy resources like solar, offshore wind, electric vehicles and battery storage, into the electric system.
