To the Editor:
There has never been a better time to invest in solar. Solarize Newtown is a state and town-sponsored program that makes solar more affordable for Newtown homeowners by aggregating installations in our community with a pre-selected installer, who is discounting solar in exchange for our community’s outreach and education efforts.
We know solar is good for the environment, but is solar a good investment for our pocketbooks?

Is your home suitable for solar power?
Residents had a chance Tuesday evening to learn more about the Solarize Connecticut, Solarize Newtown launch, “a unique discount buying program that uses a tiered-pricing structure, town-supported education and outreach … to dramatically reduce the cost of solar.”

Newtown has been selected to participate in a unique solar program offered through the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority (CEFIA). The town will join ten 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.
Also participating in the program are a coalition of Ashford, Chaplin, Hampton and Pomfret; a coalition of Easton, Redding and Trumbull; and the towns of Greenwich, Manchester, and West Hartford.
