WTC installs rooftop solar project using C-PACE financing
Westport, CT (August 16, 2023) – The Connecticut Green Bank announces that Westport Tennis Club, 1696 Post Road East, Westport, installed a solar photovoltaic (PV) system on their roof using Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) financing. The 60.72 kW system is expected to save the facility more than $328,090 in avoided electricity costs over the 20-year financing term.
For more than 40 years, the Westport Tennis Club (WTC) has been serving the community with a safe, clean environment for play. Their facility features indoor, fully lighted Har-Tru courts providing year-round tennis lessons, clinics, and open courts for the whole family.
“We are thrilled to announce the successful installation of our state-of-the-art solar roof panels, marking a significant milestone in our commitment towards sustainable energy solutions and reducing our carbon footprint,” said Robert Mercorella of Westport Tennis Club.
Earthlight Technologies, headquartered in Ellington, installed the system.
“We are seeing more businesses with long histories in their community, like Westport Tennis Club, installing solar financed through C-PACE as part of their operations,” said Mackey Dykes, Vice President of Financing Programs at the Green Bank. “Solar helps reduce their energy costs, makes a positive environmental impact, and shows the families WTC serves that they care about sustainable solutions.”
