Empower Energies to Host Webinar Featuring Connecticut Solar & Storage Incentives

October 11, 2022

Connecticut has some of the most robust renewable energy incentive programs in the country, including Non-Residential Renewable Energy Solutions (NRES), the Energy Storage Solutions Program, Electric Vehicle Charging, and Shared Clean Energy Facility (SCEF). Combined with an infusion of funding from the Inflation Reduction Act, there is no better time to transition to renewable energy in CT than now. However, time to get up-to-speed on how to apply the incentives available to your solar and storage projects is limited with incentive enrollment deadlines quickly approaching in early 2023.

On Wednesday, November 16 at 12 pm EST, the Empower Energies team will host a webinar called Zeroing in on Connecticut: Groundbreaking Solar and Storage Incentives for the Energy Transition that aims to demystify the renewable energy programs currently available, as well as help C&I building owners in Connecticut explore how they can take advantage of this incredible opportunity to develop renewable energy projects at cost.

What to expect

On the agenda, we’ll discuss:

  • The background of renewable energy programs in Connecticut, including the former LREC/ZREC programs (Short for Low-emission Renewable Energy Credits and Zero-Emission Renewable Energy Credits)
  • 3 new programs in 2022: Energy Storage Solutions Program, NRES, EV Charging
  • An existing program: SREC
  • Important timelines and considerations for these incentives
  • A case study of a commercial project that showcases how these incentive programs can be applied and impact project ROI
  • To close out the webinar, there will be a Q&A. Feel free to submit a question during registration.

Why you should sign up

It cannot be overstated how powerfully these Connecticut incentives can impact the financials of renewable energy projects when applied thoughtfully and efficiently. Before developing a renewable energy project in CT, it is important to understand how these incentives interact with one another and also with federal programs such as the Investment Tax Credit (ITC), which was recently extended by the Inflation Reduction Act.

All attendees will receive access to the webinar recording and slides after the presentation, and the final recording will be hosted on our website here.
