“As a Clean Energy Community, Greenwich is very excited to have been selected to participate in the Solarize Connecticut program. This is a great opportunity for our residents to take advantage of group pricing on a PV solar installation. The Conservation Commission will be working with CEFIA and SmartPower to help launch this new program.”

- Great Incentives!
“After learning the government incentives [would] help with a large portion of the expense, I thought this might be the best time for me…to do something good to help the environment.”
- Saving Money and Reducing Global Warming!
“Not only am I saving money, but I’m doing my part in reducing global warming and making our planet a less polluted place to live.”
- Can’t Wait to See Our Next Utility Bill!
“The system looks great and we can’t wait to see our next utility bill!”
- Saving Money!
“I’ve always wanted to go solar – a good friend of mine had done it and raved about it. So when I bought my house in Greenwich, I got a quote to get the work done. Bottom line, it just wasn’t in the budget. Fast forward 3 years later…when I heard about the Solarize Greenwich program, I jumped right on it. My quote from Renewable Resources was so good (down about 35%) that I signed up immediately. The construction went by in FLASH (believe me, I’ve had lots of construction done, and these guys were light speed). I saved money the first day they flipped the switch!”
