Become an Approved Solar PV Contractor

The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF) is seeking applications from solar photovoltaic (PV) contractors interested in participating in the Residential Solar PV Rebate Program.  We invite you to participate in this program to install PV projects on CT residences. This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is intended to promote the development of the clean energy technology industry in Connecticut by making funds available for the installation of PV projects sized 10 kW AC and under.


CCEF will evaluate RFQ responses and contractors will be approved.
