STRATFORD, CT--(Marketwire -09/04/12)- Encon Solar has been named Selected Solar Installer for Solarize CT-Westport, an innovative new pilot project sponsored by the Connecticut Clean Energy Finance & Investment Authority (CEFIA) to encourage residential installations of solar photovoltaic (electric) and hot water systems. Westport is one of four Connecticut towns chosen to participate in this exciting program promoting the many benefits of "going solar" to save energy and reduce our collective reliance on fossil fuels.
The Solarize Connecticut pilot is based on a proven residential aggregation model designed to bring down the cost of solar installations when residents in the designated towns sign up for a pre-selected installer's offering. The more residents who sign up to install solar during the pilot program (late August-December 14th), the more the price decreases for everyone who participates. The Solarize approach has already met with success in Oregon and Massachusetts.
As the selected solar installer for Westport, Encon Solar will provide a team of highly trained and certified technicians and installers to work with residents participating in the pilot project. Encon brings more than 40 years of experience providing energy solutions to residents and businesses throughout Connecticut and Westchester County, NY.
"The entire Encon Solar team is extremely proud to win the Solarize Westport contract," said Glenn Cucinell, Solar Division Manager, Encon. "We know many people in town are interested in going solar and are eager to learn more about what is involved. Town officials and many Westport organizations have been extremely supportive of this pilot program and we look forward to working closely with them to provide these new solar customers with exceptional customer service."
