About CT Green Bank

The Connecticut Green Bank (formerly the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority) is the nation’s first full-scale Green Bank. The Connecticut Green Bank leverages public and private funds to drive investment and scale up clean energy deployment across the state. They offer incentives and innovative low-cost financing to encourage homeowners, businesses, municipalities, and other institutions to support renewable energy and energy efficiency.

The Connecticut Green Bank has met its residential solar deployment goal of 30 MW eight years early and under budget. Governor Malloy has announced a new policy that will expand the Residential Solar Investment Program target to no less than 300 MW by 2022.
