Clean-energy projects to be funded over three years.

ROCKY HILL, Conn., November 19, 2003 – The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF) today announced its plans to continue supporting Solar Photovoltaics (PV) and issue a new request for proposals (RFP) for projects involving installation and use of PV technology in commercial, industrial and institutional buildings. The program will fund projects on a rolling basis over the next three years. Photovoltaic technologies convert sunlight into clean, usable energy.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to help fund projects that will show how PV technology can power buildings effectively and economically, while improving the environment by reducing consumption of energy from the grid,” said Charlie Moret, managing director, investments, for CCEF. “Funding projects continually over three years will provide the ongoing market stimulation needed to encourage the development and commercialization of this exciting technology.”
CCEF will seek projects that demonstrate PV’s potential as a viable distributed-generation resource in Connecticut. The fund is particularly interested in innovative, replicable PV systems that:
• Help build the Solar Photovoltaic industry in the State;
• Constitute a highly visible application;
• Provide high-value or premium-power attributes;
• Relieve electrical load congestion in energy-constrained areas of Connecticut;
• Reduce barriers to installation;
• Promote environmental benefits.

The complete RFP will be available in late December. It will be obtainable from CCEF’s Web site, www.ctcleanenergy.com, or by sending a written request to Connecticut Clean Energy Fund, 999 West St., Rocky Hill, CT 06067

The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund, which is administered by Connecticut Innovations, invests in enterprises and initiatives that promote and develop sustainable markets for energy from renewables and fuel cells that will benefit the electric ratepayers of Connecticut.
