Two Connecticut Green Bank programs have made headlines recently for their success in promoting clean energy adoption in the state.

In New London, CT, the “Solar for All” program is helping homeowners finance solar power and energy efficiency measures. This program is specifically designed to make solar accessible for low-to-moderate income families, has no minimum credit scores or minimum income requirements, and guarantees that homeowners will save money on their energy bills. New London Mayor Michael Passero is excited about this initiative: “They’re trying to improve the city’s housing stock,” he said. “This partnership brings us to the next level. I’m excited about the jobs this will create and the opportunity for residents to get their homes to be more energy efficient.” Read more here.

Connecticut manufacturers are equally enthusiastic about financing clean energy upgrades through the Connecticut Green Bank. Due to overwhelming interest in their “Energy on the Line” program, which provides grants for renewable energy and energy efficiency building upgrades at owner-occupied manufacturing facilities in the state, the Green Bank is extending their application deadline. Since the program launched in April, nearly 60 companies have expressed interest. Five energy savings projects have already been approved, with another seven applications in review. “Connecticut manufacturers feel the burden of energy costs more than anyone, and we’re excited to see C-PACE put manufacturers back in control of their businesses through the Energy on the Line program,” stated Bryan Garcia, President and CEO of the Connecticut Green Bank.
