Solar Panel Laws in Connecticut
3 Solar Panel Laws in Connecticut That Will Save You Money
1) Public Act No. 13-298
Also known as An Act Concerning Implementation of Connecticut’s Comprehensive Energy Strategy and Various Revisions to the Energy Statutes, this law allows agricultural customers to run solar farms of up to 3 megawatts and sell the solar power they collect there to serve the needs of up to 10 other farms.
2) Net metering and progressive RPS
An RPS, or renewable portfolio standard, is a law that requires a certain amount of power be generated by renewable means by a certain date.
3) Solar Home Renewable Energy Credits
To further incentivize the use of solar power, Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is supporting a measure that aims to create the first market for residential solar energy credits for the state.
So whether it’s through allowing agricultural customers to run solar farms and sell the solar power they collect there, providing customers with progressive RPS laws as well as net metering, or further incentivizing solar power through solar home renewable energy credits, electricity customers in the state of Connecticut have never had a better opportunity to save some green while going green!
