Following an application by the Conservation Commission, Greenwich was selected by CEFIA on September 4th 2013 to participate in the Solarize CT program. Solarize Greenwich provides an opportunity for Greenwich homeowners to reduce their electricity bills by installing solar panel systems on their property at a dramatically discounted cost thanks to the power of group purchasing.
Solarize Greenwich uses a tiered-pricing structure where the more residents sign up the more the cost of the solar panel system comes down for everyone. Solarize Greenwich is partnership that includes the Town of Greenwich, CEFIA, a clean energy non - profit group Smart Power, and a competitively selected solar panel installer Renewable Resources Energy Solutions of Stamford, CT.
The Conservation Commission is assembling a team of Solar Ambassadors to help promote the Solarize Greenwich program. Residents who are interested in promoting clean energy and working with the Conservation Commission, CEFIA, and Renewable Resources are encouraged to email Director of Environmental Affairs, Patricia Sesto. Solar ambassadors will help the Solarize Greenwich marketing campaign by distributing informative materials, working at events, and sharing your experiences with your own solar installation.
