Keeping It Green Ep. 6 – Shared Solar in Connecticut

Episode #6: Shared Solar in Connecticut

This episode discusses recommendations from the Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering’s 2015 study on shared clean energy facilities, with an emphasis on shared solar. Approximately 80% of Connecticut residents cannot install solar panels on their roofs—because they rent, or because their roofs are too shady or otherwise unsuitable. Shared solar facilities would enable these people to access solar energy, and would also increase in-state renewable generation. The Connecticut state legislature is currently considering whether to authorize shared clean energy facilities to operate in the state. The episode concludes by discussing these bills and considering how they can be strengthened.
