Connecticut Launches Solar Energy Web Portal for Homeowners

October 28, 2013

The Clean Energy Finance & Investment Authority (CEFIA) of Connecticut on October 21 launched the GoSolarCT web portal and campaign, designed to build awareness for homeowners seeking to “go solar” by installing photovoltaic (PV) electricity systems. The website includes a new online tool enabling more than 1 million Connecticut homeowners to obtain specific data regarding their home’s suitability for solar and to compare energy and cash savings for solar leases and loans. GoSolarCT is part of the state’s Energize Connecticut initiative seeking to provide residents and businesses with cleaner, cheaper and more reliable energy opportunities.

The website allows residents to learn whether their house is right for solar and to obtain information about the benefits and potential costs. Residents can also learn how a variety of new financing products can make the clean, reliable technology more accessible for them. provides a list of local solar installers that offer the new financing products or connects those seeking more detailed information to dedicated solar guides to help them through the process. The innovative web tool is a free resource made possible by a public-private partnership between CEFIA and Geostellar, the nation’s largest online solar energy marketplace.
