NBC Connecticut – New Solar Panel Project in Bloomfield Could Cut Resident’s Energy Costs
Six thousand solar panels are now the source of potential savings for Bloomfield residents’ electric bills.
“The facility generates energy from the solar panels, that energy flows through a meter into the lines that are already on the street,” Jeff Lord, senior vice president of Clean Energy Collective said.
Lord said the Connecticut pilot project, known as a community solar project, eliminates having to put solar panels on homes or businesses. Instead Eversource customers subscribe to the program and then receive a credit on their bill.
