Announcement:  Please be advised AFC First suspended receipt of applications under the Connecticut Solar Lease Program February 26, 2010.


This suspension is being implemented in order to allow for continued work on the existing pipeline to ensure all funding is utilized while inconveniencing as few customers as possible.  Applications received by AFC First before February 26, 2010 5:00 pm are eligible to receive a lease Reservation Number if it receives Final Approval from AFC First.  Please note, having a Reservation Number does not guarantee that the application will be funded.  A Reservation Number is a place in our pipeline of applications that are eligible for funding.  We will fund as many applications with Reservation Numbers that we have money to support.  Rebate applications submitted to CCEF prior to an applicant receiving a Reservation Number (Final Approval status from AFC First) are not eligible for a lease under the CT Solar Lease Program.


We are working diligently so that we can help as many customers as possible.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact AFC First at (610) 433-7486.
