Connecticut Launches Three-Year Photovoltaic and Fuel Cell Programs
The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF) announced two new programs in early January. A proposed solar program, funded at $1 million, will encourage installations of solar-electric photovoltaic (PV) systems on commercial, industrial, and institutional buildings in Connecticut. A fuel cell program will receive $4 million. Each program will last three years. Developing these two technologies will directly create employment opportunities in the state, according to CCEF Managing Director of Investments Charlie Moret.
