CT installs solar system in Woodbridge
The Connecticut Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority installed a five-kilowatt solar system on Saturday at the Massaro Community Farm in Woodbridge, as part of the farm’s Celebrate Spring event.
CEFIA recognized Woodbridge with the photovoltaic system for the town’s commitment to clean energy. The town signed up 5 percent of all its households for the CTCleanEnergyOptions program and installed 15 clean energy systems.
“By choosing to place its earned solar electric system at the Massaro Community Farm, the town is reinforcing the message that locally produced energy, like locally grown food, is good for our economy and environment,” said Bob Wall, CEFIA director of marketing and outreach, in a press release.
CTCleanEnergyOptions encourages Connecticut residents and businesses to support clean energy from Community Energy or Northeast Clean Power. The program, launched in 2005, has 103 cities and towns participating and more than 25,000 customers.
