Half-MW Solar PV Project Funded in Connecticut

Rocky Hill, Connecticut [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] The single largest solar photovoltaic (PV) project ever undertaken in Connecticut will go forward as a result of the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund’s (CCEF) recent approval to provide $1.7 million in funding for the project. The 433-kilowatt commercial solar photovoltaic system will be developed in eastern Connecticut on the site of the distribution center of a major national company. CCEF funded the project under its $21 million On-site Renewable Distributed Generation Program. The decision represents a milestone: CCEF has now supported development of more than 100 solar PV systems statewide, which have a total nameplate capacity exceeding one megawatt. The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund began funding solar energy projects in 2002 under a pilot program and, at end of 2003, created its first commercial solar program with initial funding of $3 million. The program was so popular among commercial, industrial, and institutional property owners that it was significantly expanded by additional funding of $9 million in early 2005. The Fund’s residential solar PV program also has been popular, and in January CCEF increased its funding by $3 million.
