NORWALK, Conn. — “Solar for All Norwalk,” a new program intended to reduce Eversource homeowners’ energy costs by enabling affordable solar power and efficency upgrades, will be explained in a webinar at 6:30 p.m. Thursday April 22, according to a press release.
From April 22 to July 31, homeowners will have access to a lease program which is said to “cover the full cost of installing, maintaining and ensuring the solar system, with no credit score requirement and no equipment to buy.” The program is driven by a partnership between Bridgeport-based contractor PosiGen and The Connecticut Green Bank.
PosiGen Community Marketing Manager Susan Young said. “We’re changing the misconception that solar is only for the rich, with a program that gives homeowners control of their energy costs.”
Mayor Harry Rilling said “As we celebrate Earth Day, we are looking to make solar and energy efficiency programs more accessible to families to help reduce their carbon footprint and their electric bills. Solar for All Norwalk is an important resource for reducing these financial burdens. I encourage homeowners to look into this program and for members of the community to share this resource.”
“The program is only eligible to Eversource customers so SNEW and Third Taxing District customers are unfortunately ineligible,” Principal Planner Bryan Baker said. “This is because the program is through the Connecticut Green Bank which gets funding through a portion of Eversource customers’ bills. We encourage SNEW and Third Taxing District customers to contact their energy providers to see what programs are eligible to them!”
