Murphy vows to expand CT green bank model nationwide, promote new clean energy businesses
Today, during a roundtable discussion with representatives from the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association and members of the financial services industry, U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) vowed to expand “green bank” financing systems – such as Connecticut’s Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority (CEFIA) – to promote economic prosperity, job growth, and energy security nationwide. Green banks are organizations that provide limited public dollars to attract larger, private investments in clean energy projects. During the roundtable, Murphy announced his plans to reintroduce the Green Bank Act, which creates a national green bank that provides direct financial support for clean energy businesses and initiatives across the United States. Connecticut’s CEIFA – the first green bank in the country – has, with $165 million in public financing, attracted over $490 million of private investment in clean energy, created over 3,000 job-years, and reduced approximately 1.4 million tons of CO2 emissions over the life of the projects it has financed.
