Brookfield is joining the list of towns in the state that have been selected for the Solarize Connecticut program. It's an initiative that provides incentives to municipalities for signing up residents and businesses for solar power. The discount buying program also offers grants and rebates to those signing up.
The more participants, the more the cost comes down.
Brookfield First Selectman Bill Tinsley said in a statement that the town takes pride in supporting initiatives that offer both environmental and economic benefits. He added that this will make Brookfield a cleaner place to live, support local jobs and reduce energy costs.
