First Connecticut Community Qualifies for Solar PV System

Rocky Hill, Connecticut [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF), Connecticut Department of Public Utility Control (DPUC) and City of Middletown hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil a 2-kW solar photovoltaic (PV) system installed at the Vocational Agriculture Building at Middletown High School. Middletown was the first Connecticut community to qualify for a CCEF-provided solar PV system, after earning the designation of being a Connecticut Clean Energy Community. Under the program, cities and towns across Connecticut may become a Connecticut Clean Energy Community by committing to SmartPower’s 20% by 2010 clean energy campaign and securing a minimum of 100 residential sign-ups to the DPUC’s CTCleanEnergyOptions program. The CTCleanEnergyOptions program encourages Connecticut residents, who are customers of CL&P or United Illuminating, to support clean energy by selecting a clean energy offering from one of two clean energy suppliers — Community Energy or Sterling Planet. A total of 10 Connecticut cities and towns are now Connecticut Clean Energy Communities.
