Bethel To Participate in Residential Solar Program Kick-off Workshop, October 19th
Bethel, CT — The Town of Bethel announced today that will participate in a statewide program designed to help interested residents decide if solar power is right for them. Solarize Bethel is part of Solarize Connecticut — the residential solar program managed by the non-profit organization, SmartPower. To date, Solarize Connecticut has provided information that has helped thousands of Connecticut residents make the switch to residential solar power.
The Town’s Energy Conservation Commission, in partnership with Solarize Bethel and its installer, Ross Solar, Inc., will conduct a free workshop on Thursday, October 19th from 7 pm to 8:30 pm at Clifford Hurgin Municipal Center at 1 School Street to help residents determine if solar power might be right for their home. At the workshop, residents can learn about the Solarize Bethel program and learn about the differences between leasing and purchasing panels.
In addition, Solarize Bethel will offer residents information about financing options available to homeowners, including programs with no upfront costs. Homeowners who want to find out if their home is good for solar can go directly to SolarizeCT.com/Bethel. The website will be updated over the 20-week campaign with upcoming solar workshops and events. Residents who live in surrounding communities can also participate in Solarize by going to SolarizeCT.com.
