Trumbull, Easton and Redding residents can lower their energy costs.
The three towns have joined forces to participate in a "unique solar program offered through the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority (CEFIA)," according Solarize Connecticut.
"The towns will join eight other communities in Phase 3 of Solarize Connecticut that expects to more than double the amount of solar across the communities over the 20-week program. Also participating in the program is a coalition of Ashford, Chaplin, Hampton, and Pomfret along with the towns of Greenwich, Manchester, Newtown and West Hartford,"
Solarize "leverages group discounts through a pre-selected installer to reduce the cost of solar; it relies on the community to provide outreach and education to create awareness and build interest, and it promotes a clear end date that motivates residents to act."
Sunlight Solar Energy will be part of the Solarize Easton-Redding-Trumbull program.
“I am very pleased that Trumbull has been selected to participate in the Solarize Connecticut group purchasing program, which will enable Trumbull homeowners to better deal with the sometimes daunting costs of residential solar installations,” said Timothy Herbst, Trumbull First Selectman. “We look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership with the Towns of Easton and Redding as we work together to promote the program.”
delighted that Easton is a Solarize community,” added Tom Herrmann, Easton
First Selectman. “I know that there are
many homeowners out there who have been thinking about installing a solar PV
system, but have been hesitating to make the investment. Now that Easton,
Redding, and Trumbull have come together, these systems will be so much more
affordable. I hope that many Easton residents will take advantage of this
Natalie Ketcham, First Selectman from the Town of Redding added, "I am delighted that this innovative solar energy program is now available to Redding residents. For those interested in taking advantage of solar energy, the process is now simplified and made more affordable. I hope that residents attend the town launch meeting to learn more about the program and the benefits of participation."
