The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF), in partnership with Connecticut Audubon Society (CAS) will present five Clean Energy seminars this spring which will be hosted by CAS regional centers. The seminars will provide information about several CCEF programs that promote the use and development of clean energy in Connecticut for the benefit of the environment, health of our citizens, and overall energy independence. The efforts of CCEF fit well with Connecticut Audubon Society’s mission to provide excellence in environmental education while encouraging the conservation of the state’s natural resources.

The seminars will discuss several ways we all can support and use clean energy in our homes and businesses. Come to an Audubon center near you to learn more about the following:

  • CTCleanEnergyOptions is a program that is offered to customers of CL&P and United Illuminating which promotes the creation of clean, renewable energy from sources such as wind, landfill gas, small hydro and solar energy. Learn about how you can support clean energy and how easy it is to sign up to CTCleanEnergyOptions.
  • The SmartPower 20% by 2010 Clean Energy Campaign is a challenge to cities and towns, faith communities, educational institutions and businesses to start choosing clean energy. Through the 20% by 2010 Campaign we will continue to prove that clean energy is real, it’s here, and it’s working. To date, nearly twenty cities and towns in Connecticut have made the switch to clean energy with many more taking steps. Come to learn how you can get involved and help your town choose clean energy.
  • CCEF’s Clean Energy Communities program is designed to provide additional incentives for municipal, business and residential electric customers to choose clean energy. For every 100 residential sign-ups to the CTCleanEnergyOptions program (large business purchases qualify as more) the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund will install a 1kW solar electric (PV) system on a community building at no cost. This program puts cities and towns in partnership with their residents. As the free solar systems are earned, everyone wins with reduced emissions from municipal and residential electric use, free electricity generated by the solar system and the great educational opportunity the solar system provides.
  • CCEF’s Rebates for Residential Solar (PV) Installations are encouraging state residents to install clean energy generation systems on their homes. The rebates, as much $25,000 per household, are offered through select participating solar installation companies. Solar PV systems utilize the clean, renewable energy of the sun to produce electricity for your home. Learn about the benefits of these systems, what size system to consider, system payback economics, and much more from experts in the field. CCEF’s “Connecticut Consumer’s Guide to Buying a Solar Electric System” will be available to all seminar attendees.
  • The promotion and development of a robust clean energy industry is designed to protect our environment, improve our health, and provide for a more secure energy future. Energy efficiency measures in existing homes and new building design are also very important. During these seminars you will learn ways to conserve energy at home and at work. The Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund will be on hand to provide the latest information available to state residents.

These seminars are presented by the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund and supported by Connecticut Audubon Society. They are being offered at no charge and will run approximately two hours. All seminars will start promptly at 7:00 p.m. Please consult the schedule above for seminar dates and locations.
