WALLINGFORD — Energy efficiency contractor Competitive Resources Inc. (CRI) of Wallingford has been cited by the U.S. Department of Energy with its 2013 Home Performance with Energy Star Century Club Award.

This is the third consecutive Century Club Award that CRI has earned. The distinction is conferred on companies nationwide that have improved the energy performance of more than 100 homes in the past year, while successfully fulfilling the requirements of its local Home Performance with Energy Star program.

Contractors participating in the Home Performance program are trained to diagnose homes and determine where energy improvements are necessary. In Connecticut, CRI and other utility-authorized contractors provide home energy efficiency services through Energize Connecticut’s Home Energy Solutions (HES) programs, which are administered by the state’s utility companies.
