February 2005 - The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF) has developed a program to assist Connecticut communities in the purchase and support of clean energy. Under the Clean Energy Communities Program, participating communities will qualify to receive solar PV systems if they commit to: 1) purchase 20% of their electricity from renewable sources by 2010; 2) enroll local businesses and residents in the renewable energy programs to be offered by Connecticut Light & Power and United Illuminating; and 3) allocate the electricity saved from the new solar system to additional purchases of clean energy. The program was developed in partnership with SmartPower, a nationwide, non-profit marketing campaign, headquartered in Hartford, CT.
