BROOKFIELD, Conn., April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Town of Brookfield has been selected to participate in a unique solar discount program that makes going solar easy and affordable. The Solarize Brookfield program will kick off with a workshop on Tuesday May 6 from 7:00-8:30pm at the Brookfield Town Hall on 100 Pocono Road, where residents can learn about the program and meet their pre-selected solar installer. The town expects to more than double the amount of solar currently in Brookfield over the 20-week program.
Solarize is a unique program offered by CEFIA in partnership with SmartPower that increases residential solar through a proven formula. It leverages group discounts through a pre-selected installer to reduce the cost of solar; it relies on the community to provide outreach and education to create awareness and build interest, and it promotes a clear end date that motivates residents to act. Over the past several weeks town officials have been interviewing installers and announced recently they have formally selected Ross Solar Group to be part of Solarize Brookfield program and do all of Brookfield's solar installations.
Brookfield First Selectman Tinsley commented: "We are very pleased to have been selected for Solarize Connecticut. Our town takes pride in supporting initiatives that offer both environmental and economic benefits. Solarize will provide our residents with the opportunity to reduce their energy costs, make Brookfield a cleaner place to live, and support local jobs. We at town hall are committed to working with residents and our selected Solarize contractor to make the program a success."
"CEFIA is extremely proud of what we have been able to achieve through the Solarize program. We continue to see our financing tools and the Solarize model bringing down the cost of solar and making it affordable for more and more homeowners throughout Connecticut", stated Bryan Garcia, President and CEO of CEFIA. "We expect to achieve similar success as we begin the next phase of this innovative program with the participation of Brookfield's leaders and their dedicated volunteers."
Residents who are interested in learning more about Solarize Brookfield are urged to attend.
