Windsor, CT, January 7, 2015
A new partnership will bring an innovative, award-winning solar energy system to homeowners in the greater Hartford area consisting of the towns of Windsor, Windsor Locks, East Granby, and Suffield.
The partnership between C-TEC Solar of Windsor, Ct. and solar tracker manufacturer AllEarth Renewables of Williston, Vt. was announced today.
C-TEC Solar recently won the ability to serve the four-town coalition for the Solarize Connecticut program. The 18 week program began December 2 and offers progressing discounts to homeowners looking to go solar based on community adoption.
Solarize Connecticut, a partnership between the Connecticut Green Bank and SmartPower, has resulted in over 1,800 new residential solar installations, totaling 14 MW of clean, renewable energy in the state.
The partnership provides homeowners in the program the choice of a ground-mounted solar array with AllEarth Renewables’ innovative solar tracker.
Designed and manufactured in Vermont, AllEarth Solar Trackers use innovative GPS and wireless technology to follow the sun throughout the day to boost solar energy production by up to 45 percent over roof-top installations. The pole mounted solar systems are designed for homes, businesses, non-profits, and commercial-scale installations.
A single 6 kW solar tracker will produce enough energy to power most of an average Connecticut home.
With 30 years of expertise in the industry, C-TEC Solar is one of the most experienced solar contractors in the northeast specializing in solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. Fully licensed and insured, C‐TEC Solar aims to provide complete, affordable, start-to-finish solar project services with flexible solar financing solutions for clean energy projects.
“We are committed to meeting our growing customers’ needs and the AllEarth Solar Tracker is an excellent addition to our installation options, particularly for homeowners with some land to go solar. More and more people are excited about creating their own source of energy and with a solar tracker they can optimize their production and get a better return on investment,” said Mickey Toro, owner of C-TEC Solar.
The AllEarth Solar Tracker is a “Top-10 Green Product” by BuildingGreen magazine.
AllEarth Renewables, a previous Inc 500 company for fastest growing businesses nationwide, has designed, manufactured, and installed over 2,800 solar tracker systems.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with C-TEC to offer our product for the exciting Solarize program in the Windsor area. Designed to produce more energy from the sun and withstand tough northeastern climates, our trackers make solar practical and affordable for homeowners and businesses with a little available land to produce renewable, on-site solar,” said David Blittersdorf, president and CEO of AllEarth Renewables.
For interested customers in the participating towns, local workshops are being held to educate residents about solar in the coming weeks. More information can be found at: http://solarizect.com/our-towns/solarize-east-granby-suffield-windsor-windsor-locks
