Who: CT Energy Committee
What: Join Us for a Strategy Session to Support Legislation for Community Shared Solar in Connecticut.
The Problem: While the cost of renewable energy is now competitive with traditional power, the majority of Connecticut homeowners and businesses cannot access this affordable clean energy, because they do not have a suitable site for renewable energy on their own property.
The Solution: Enable all energy customers to participate in shared clean energy facilities and receive credit on their utility bill for their portion of the clean energy produced.
- Opens up access to affordable clean energy to the 75% of customers who cannot put it on their own property: renters, condo-owners, business that lease their space, and homeowners with tree-shaded or otherwise unsuitable roofs.
- Allows ALL Connecticut energy customers to benefit from the state's clean energy programs. All customers contribute to these programs, and all should benefit from them, even if they don't own property.
- Promotes clean energy development in the most cost-effective locations
- Prevents conflict between clean energy growth and tree preservation: homeowners don't have to cut down their trees to go solar.
- Will boost the Connecticut solar industry, attract new investment from national solar companies, and create thousands of new in-state jobs.
At this strategy session we will discuss the bill's probable path, discuss key talking points and constituencies to reach, and plan together to ensure the success of this important legislation
Please write your legislator and the CT Energy Committee to support this legislation.
When: Wednesday, February 26, 7 PM
Where: Kroon Hall, Room G01,195 Prospect Street, New Haven, CT
