The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund Invites Professional Engineers to Assist with Photovoltaic Program

(Rocky Hill, Connecticut – May 5, 2003) – The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF) is soliciting statements of qualifications and proposals from firms with a professional engineer (PE) or an individual PE to assist with the inspection, monitoring and verification of its Photovoltaic (PV) Program installations. The program was developed to stimulate the PV market in Connecticut and foster the installation and operation of PV on Connecticut commercial, industrial and institutional buildings.

The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund’s program finalists consist of the Town of Fairfield, Vestar, City of Stamford, Granby Education Foundation and Select Energy Services. These parties will coordinate the development of solar PV projects at their respective sites in Fairfield, Hamden, Stamford, Granby and Hartford.

“Once completed, the selected projects will clearly demonstrate that solar PV can be adopted and work well in Connecticut and, at the same time, relieve electric load congestion in critical areas of the state,” said Charles Moret, managing director, investments, Connecticut Clean Energy Fund. “A professional engineer will assist us in achieving our goals and in building an efficient and well-organized process.”

The decision to hire a firm or individual will be based on the applicant’s ability to respond to and meet the guidelines and conditions set forth in the solicitation and to demonstrate experience in Photovoltaic design or installations. Submittal requirements and format can be found on the CCEF’s website, The qualifications and proposals must be received by 3:00 p.m. on Monday, May 12, 2003.

The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund selected the projects that provide high value; support a highly visible application; reduce barriers to installation; demonstrate innovative approaches to design, application or financing; and promote solar PV as a clean, practical and environmentally friendly technology. The projects also presented effective distributed power-generation, which solves the problem of limited infrastructure, and a capability to reduce the power grid load during the high peak summer months in Connecticut.

The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund, administered by Connecticut Innovations, invests in enterprises and other initiatives that promote and develop sustainable markets for energy from renewables and fuel cells that will benefit the ratepayers of Connecticut. For more information, visit
