NORWALK, CT – The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk will make significant energy-efficiency upgrades thanks to a gift of $141,509.43 from the global insurance provider Chubb.
The amount is the value of a credit received by Chubb through the Connecticut Neighborhood Assistance Act (NAA) Tax Credit Program. Funds will be used to make improvements to the HVAC system in the Aquarium’s 135,000-square-foot facility.
“We thank Chubb and their local representatives at Assured Partners for selecting The Maritime Aquarium as a recipient of the NAA grant,” said Jason Patlis, the Aquarium’s President and CEO. “These funds enable important cost-reducing investments that also allow the Aquarium to model environmental leadership through the use of efficient and green technologies for our operations.”
Jon Pensa, Chubb Senior Vice President and New Haven Branch Manager, said the Aquarium is a natural partner for Chubb.
“We are proud of our long-standing relationship with The Maritime Aquarium, and our support for their green technologies and conservation efforts make sense on many levels,” Pensa said. “Good corporate citizenship lies at Chubb’s core – from how we practice our craft, to how we work to make a difference in the communities we serve.”
Also supporting the Aquarium’s energy-efficiency upgrades through the NAA Tax Credit Program this year are ConnectiCare Insurance Company, Inc., and RC Bigelow, Inc.
