1928

Connecticut’s Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority selects Real Goods Solar as a 2013 Solarize Choice Installer. In partnership with CEFIA, Real Goods Solar will work with Solarize Choice in the communities of Columbia-Lebanon, Cheshire, and Enfield.

Real Goods Solar (NASDAQ: RSOL) a nationwide company offering turnkey solar energy solutions for residential, commercial, and utility customers, has been selected as a 2013 Solarize Choice Installer by Connecticut’s Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority (CEFIA). In partnership with CEFIA, Real Goods Solar will work with Solarize Choice in the communities of Columbia-Lebanon, Cheshire, and Enfield. 

The Solarize Choice program is designed to reduce the cost and increase the adoption of solar energy. The program offers residents and businesses discounted pricing for solar by partnering installers with local communities, so greater savings can be enjoyed by all.

“We’ve realized great success with previous Solarize Choice programs, and we expect this one to be very successful as well,” said Justin Pentelute, Real Goods Solar President of Residential and Small Commercial Systems. “In our last Solarize Connecticut initiative, we were able to more than double the amount of solar deployed in Portland. In our most recent community solarize program, which was in the state of Massachusetts and ended in September, we secured more than 1.5MW of residential projects in the towns of Lee, Williamstown, and Northampton. We expect our Connecticut efforts to also yield significant deployments.”

Home and business owners in these locales will have until March 31, 2014 to sign up for the program.
