The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund is making available $1.8 Million in the form of rebates to state residents for solar energy systems

Up to $25,000 Per Home Is Available Through Participating Solar Photovoltaic Installation Companies.

Rocky Hill, Conn., October 4, 2004— Homeowners seeking to lower their electric bills by adding solar photovoltaic (PV) systems to their rooftops can now contact participating installation companies. These professional contractors are authorized to obtain the rebates which will lower the cost of the solar energy system, by approximately one half, under the clean energy incentive program.

Connecticut residents are some of the nation’s most enlightened energy consumers and welcome more affordable, cleaner forms of energy,” said Charles Moret, CCEF managing director. “The Fund is promoting and supporting solar energy in Connecticut with incentive programs for residential and commercial property owners to achieve its goal of increasing the use of solar PV technology today.”

Buyers of solar energy systems can expect lower monthly electric bills through the use of solar technology. They can lower those bills further by combining solar technology with energy efficiency and conservation measures. Solar PV technology will become even more attractive as the cost of traditional energy continues to rise.

Connecticut homeowners interested in the residential solar PV program can visit the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund’s website at www.ctcleanenergy or call CCEF at 860-563-0015 for the list of participating installation companies. The installation companies will assist homeowners in determining whether their homes are good candidates for solar PV systems and will also apply for the incentive on behalf of homeowners. South facing roofs are preferred.

The participating eligible installers are:
Akeena Solar, Los Gatos, CA
Burrington’s Solar Edge, Windsor Locks, CT
Global Resource Options, Stafford, VT
Pioneer Valley Photovoltaics, Kensington, CT
Solar Energy Systems, Brooklyn, NY
Solar Works, Montpelier, VT
Spire Solar, Bedford, MA
Sunlight Solar Energy, Bend, OR

The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund invests in technology to support the creation of a clean energy supply from renewable sources and fuel cells in order to strengthen Connecticut’s economy, protect community health, improve the environment, and promote national energy independence. The Fund, financed by a surcharge on ratepayers’ electric utility bills, is administered by Connecticut Innovations.
