Stamford, CT - The City of Stamford has been selected to participate in a unique solar program offered through the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority (CEFIA). The town will join other communities in Phase 3 of Solarize Connecticut, which expects to more than double the amount of solar across the community over the 20-week program.

Solarize Stamford will officially kick off with its first solar workshop on Thursday November 21, 2013 at 6:30-8:00 pm at the Stamford Government Center at 888 Washington Blvd., 4th floor Cafeteria. Residents who are interested in learning more about Solarize Stamford are urged to attend. In order to participate in the discounts offered through Solarize, residents must sign a contract by Tuesday April 8, 2014.

Solarize is a unique program offered by CEFIA in partnership with SmartPower that increases residential solar through a proven formula. It leverages group discounts through pre-selected installers to reduce the cost of solar; it relies on the community to provide outreach and education to create awareness and build interest, and it promotes a clear end-date that motivates residents to act. Over the past several weeks town officials have been interviewing installers and announced recently they have formally selected Astrum Solar, Encon Solar and Renewable Resources to be part of Solarize Stamford program and do all of the town’s solar installations.

“I am very happy that Stamford has been selected to participate in the Solarize Connecticut program because this will give our residents the opportunity to purchase solar power at a much more affordable cost,” said Stamford Mayor Pavia. “I encourage our residents to participate in this wonderful energy-saving, environmentally-friendly program.”

“CEFIA is extremely proud of what we have been able to achieve through the Solarize program. We continue to see our financing tools and the Solarize model bringing down the cost of solar and making it affordable for more and more homeowners throughout Connecticut”, stated Bryan Garcia, President and CEO of CEFIA. “We expect to achieve similar success as we begin the next phase of this innovative program with the participation of town leaders and their dedicated volunteers.”
