Clean Communities and Clean Energy sign up.
The Clean Communities program is a state sponsored program to help Connecticut reduce its dependence on a rapidly depleting supply of fossil fuels, improving the environment and providing a more secure energy future for the generations to follow by incentivizing the resident’s efforts to purchase their energy from renewable energy companies.
The Clean Communities program consists of 3 parts:
1. The town has to pass a resolution stating that it will be a clean community by purchasing 20% of its electricity from renewable suppliers by 2010. Trumbull has passed the resolution but has yet to follow through with its purchase.
2. Members of the community, either business or residents, sign up to purchase their energy from renewable energy providers, either Community Energy or Sterling Planet.
3. For every 100 signups, the town receives a free 1 kW of Photovoltaic panels installed on town property. Each kW installed is worth $8-9,000 and is provided by the Clean Energy Fund. There is no limit as to the number of systems the town can earn. To date, 150 people in Trumbull are purchasing their energy from renewable suppliers. We will get our first system when we reach 200 signups
Anyone who signs up will not notice any difference in their electricity. There is nothing else to do except fill out the form below and within a month you will notice a small additional charge on your electric bill which will equal no more than $0.013 /kWh.
