Solar energy options
Coventry - posted Jun, 26 2013
COVENTRY- Solarize Coventry has been extended until July 31, 2013 to allow residents the opportunity to utilize new financing options available through the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority (CEFIA). These options make it possible to install solar with little or no money down. Low monthly payments allow customers to be cash flow positive from the first month they install solar. The new Smart-E Loan and CT Solar Loan programs from CEFIA offer long-term, affordable options designed to allow homeowners to undertake almost any measure that reduces a home’s fuel or electricity usage or that increases on-site energy production from clean energy sources. A new leasing option, the CT Solar Lease, is expected to be available soon to residents, which provides additional financial flexibility and the opportunity to install solar for a monthly charge that is less than the customer’s current electric bill. . These financing options are in addition to the discounts offered through the Solarize program. This special Town/State program provides group discounts to residents who install solar through the Town’s official solar installer. The more residents sign up, the more the price drops, with all participants sharing in the lowest possible price, no matter when they sign up. Solarize Coventry is now at Tier 4, which means significant savings for homeowners. Coventry homeowners who are interested in learning more about these financing options should consult Encon Solar, the town’s selected Solarize installer, at 203-375-5228.

Those interested in participating in Solarize Coventry must have a signed contract by the July 31 deadline.
