Efforts underway to give more Connecticut residents access to solar power | New Haven Register

NEW HAVEN >> Efforts to give a broader group of Connecticut residents access to renewable energy for their homes are underway in the state legislature.

The so-called community solar bill doesn't even have a number yet, but supporters are hopeful that the General Assembly's Energy and Technology Committee will take up the proposed legislation during the second or third week of March, said Mike Trahan, executive director of Solar Connecticut, a renewable energy industry group. Trahan is one of the authors of the legislation, which also has the backing of state Rep. Jonathan Steinberg, D-Westport.
