New Haven Advocate – “It Ain’t Easy Going Green”

Sunlight Solar’s own Carolyn Humphreys discussed solar and the issues around building green with Betsy Yagla at the New Haven Register.  The article and a great picture of the solar array at the Humphreys residence in Bethleham, CT appeared this July in the Register.  Here’s a quick blurb:

To make solar affordable for everyone, the Clean Energy Fund came up with the first-of-its-kind solar lease program: For no money down, a consumer can lease solar panels — installed on their home — for 15 years at a fixed rate.

It’s a way to lock in electrical costs (which have gone up 14 percent for the last two years) in a state with the highest utility costs in the continental United States, and go green at the same time. It’s the first program of its kind in the country.

“The solar lease is the best thing that’s happened to solar in this state,” says Sunlight Solar’s Humphreys. “We need to make solar as easy as possible to get for anybody who wants it. People are very frustrated.”
