September 20 2013 - Two clean energy projects in Connecticut and Maine have been selected to help diversify Connecticut's energy portfolio.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced Friday that a wind energy farm in Maine and a solar installation planned for land in Sprague and Lisbon have each signed long-term contracts to provide electricity to the state's two largest power distributors, Connecticut Light & Power and United Illuminating. The contracts still require state regulatory approval.
The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection chose the two projects after reviewing 47 proposals, submitted in response to legislation authorizing the state to procure energy from renewable sources. The state hopes to obtain 20 percent of its total electric power from clean energy sources by 2020. read more>>>
