Connecticut’s solar power fund boosts installation of PVs on homes statewide
2,160 residential solar systems contracts have been approved in the last 22 months
Backed by a $27 million fund supplied by utility ratepayers, a campaign known as Solarize Connecticut joins as many homeowners as possible to lower the cost of residential solar installation. It annually earmarks $9 million of the available funding to finance residential installation by solar panel businesses competitively picked. In the past 22 months, 2,160 residential solar systems contracts have been approved, with subsidies halving the total cost.
