Forum for Connecticut Clean Energy Projects

The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF) announced that the inaugural “Project 100” forum is scheduled for November 16, 2004 at 1:00 p.m. at the Legislative Office Building, 300 Capitol Avenue, Hartford, CT 06103. The “Project 100” is a new CCEF initiative supporting landmark legislation promoting the development and funding of clean energy resources in Connecticut. This legislation creates an opportunity for clean energy developers, manufacturers and financiers to advance clean energy development projects. The CCEF initiative is the result of Connecticut legislation that mandates local electric distribution companies to enter into power purchase agreements for no less than a 10-year period from Class I renewable energy resources. The legislation calls for the contracting of a minimum of 100 MW of clean energy resources by July 1, 2007.The forum will be the first opportunity for interested parties to comment on a draft Request For Proposal (RFP) to be released prior to the forum. The forum is targeted to developers, financiers, manufacturers, and municipalities and the public is welcome.
