Bristol residents, city departments, non-profits and community organizations are invited to learn about Connecticut’s Solar for All Program that offers solar power and energy efficiency measures to homeowners, financed through a public-private partnership between PosiGen and the Connecticut Green Bank. The Solar for All Bristol initiative is launching June 10th to bring this program to our community.
“This program is another resource the City wants to make available to families who are impacted by the Coronavirus. The public health emergency has required a transition of work and schooling to be completed from home, causing an increase in utility and energy bills,” said Mayor Ellen Zoppo-Sassu. “Solar and energy efficiency programs such as this are an important resource for reducing these financial burdens. We encourage homeowners to look into this resource, and others in the community to share this resource.”
“The City’s Energy Commission has been working for the last year to identify important opportunities for Bristol,” said local resident Sean Dunn, who serves as Commission Chairman. “From helping homeowners and city government cut their costs to improving our green footprint, these programs are part of our future.”
Solar for All is a nationally-recognized program that combines a solar lease with energy efficiency upgrades to lower the energy burden on participating households. PosiGen’s lease program covers the full cost of installing, maintaining and insuring the solar system, with no credit score requirement and no equipment to buy. The Solar for All Bristol program offers a safe and contact-free way to assess whether your home is a good fit for solar. The campaign is launching its efforts June 10th and ending September 30th.
