Solarize Hamden is making it easier and more affordable for homeowners
to go solar, but the program’s deadline, Jan. 28, 2014, is less than a month away.
Since its official launch on Nov 8, Solarize Hamden has generated more than 75 inquiries from residents interested in a free home assessment to see whether their home is a good fit for solar. Of these, four have already signed contracts, collectively generating 29 kW of power.
In exchange for outreach support from the town, Hamden’s chosen installer, C-TEC Solar, is offering discounted pricing to Hamden residents. Solarize Hamden is currently offering Tier 3 pricing; as more resident sign up, Hamden will reach the next pricing Tier, which will drop the price for all Solarize participants, regardless of when they signed their contracts.
“We are hopeful that we will reach Tier 5, which offers the lowest available pricing for all Hamden residents,” said Chris Marchand, Town of Hamden Community Development Manager.
Homeowners interested in learning more can attend our Final Hamden Solarize Workshop on Thursday, Jan. 9 from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Hamden Library, Thornton Wilder Hall, 2901 Dixwell Ave.
C-TEC Solar will discuss Solarize Hamden and how solar works and answer your questions about your home’s solar potential.
“The Town of Hamden is proud to have been selected to participate in the Solarize CT program shortly after participating in Energize Hamden,” said Mayor Scott Jackson.
“Residents can look forward to solar array purchases or leases at substantially-reduced cost," he said. "The town, with great assistance by its Energy Use and Climate Change Commission, continues to seek and provide residents with opportunities for reducing energy costs and switching to cleaner energy options."
