Solar Marketplace Assistance Program for Towns and Cities

From Town Hall, to schools or the police station, Connecticut Green Bank is making it even easier for municipalities to access renewable energy and achieve energy savings at their buildings. By providing support that simplifies every step of the process, towns and cities can realize all the benefits of going solar – with fewer challenges and roadblocks to using the Green Bank Solar PPA than ever before.

Solar MAP is the perfect program for towns or cities that don’t have the tools, resources or experience to pursue energy saving options with solar on their own. Get started by filling out the form on this page, or by contacting Emily Basham at the Green Bank.

The Green Bank hosted an informational webinar for towns and cities to learn more about Solar MAP.  Municipal officials can watch a recording here.

Less work. More benefits. Now even easier for towns and cities.

Through the Solar MAP, Connecticut Green Bank will work with municipalities to develop solar PV projects in 4 easy steps.

Engage. The Solar MAP team will meet with you to understand your municipality’s goals, gather information and identify key participants, and explain the Solar MAP process in more detail.
Design. Using the information you provide, the Solar MAP team will perform analysis of municipal sites, review energy demand,and develop system designs.
Review. The Solar MAP team will solicit proposals from qualified solar contractors on behalf of the municipality, and guide the municipality through the review of proposals and negotiation of the best terms.
Execute. Once a proposal has been selected, the Solar MAP team will lead the municipality through the process of executing on the proposal and realizing its goals for installing solar on municipal properties.

Download these resources for more information, or share them with your town or city’s elected officials to bring the Solar MAP program to your municipality!
