Solar power is booming in Connecticut, at least for the estimated 20% who own homes with unshaded south-facing roofs. What about the rest of us?
In states including neighboring Massachusetts, shared clean energy laws allow anyone to share in ownership of a clean energy facility and receive full credit on their utility bill for their portion of the clean energy produced. Clean Water Action worked with solar advocates to advance legislation to bring this smart policy to Connecticut. Community clean energy leaders helped rally more than 25 articulate citizens to testify and submit testimony in support.
