Connecticut Governor Jodi Rell announced a program to help low- and moderate- income residents cut their electricity expenses and build on the state's commitment to renewable energy. The Connecticut Solar Lease Program, one of the first of its kind in the nation, is a new initiative designed to eliminate the high initial costs associated with the purchase and installation of residential solar photovoltaic (PV) systems.

The Clean Energy Fund is making solar energy a real possibility for many more Connecticut households by combining the success of its solar rebate program with the unique characteristics of this solar leasing program. -- Connecticut Governor Jodi Rell
