New Haven, like the rest of Connecticut, gets most of their energy from nuclear power and natural gas. A decade ago, most New Haven residents used nuclear power to heat their homes. Today, cheaper natural gas is piped in from PA and more and more residents are switching to natural gas. Biomass is the leading renewable energy source in CT. However, wind and solar energy are leading the way for new renewable energy sources in the state. Since there are no fossil fuels in the state, New Haven most residents rely on energy sources that are imported from surrounding states.
