Connecticut has partnered with four other New England states, under the leadership of CESA, to continue its soft-cost reduction efforts under the SunShot Initiative Rooftop Solar Challenge II. The goal of this project is to provide resources and building networks to streamline processes, improve standards, reduce soft costs and remove market barriers associated with permitting, planning and zoning and interconnection of rooftop solar PV to the grid, as well as addressing affordability by increasing access to financing. The Connecticut team has compiled results and recommendations from the Rooftop Solar Challenge project into a Round I Final Project Report and the Connecticut Rooftop Solar PV Permitting Guide Version 1.0. Those documents and more are available on the Solarize CT project website
