SolarizeCT, which began in 2009, is designed to increase the installation of residential solar systems through local campaigns. The results have been stunning. In a threeyear Connecticut campaign (2012–2015), the number of homes with solar grew from about 800 to over 12,500. Research findings based on the campaign—the first of their kind—indicate that the success of Solarize rests on a few key components.
This guidebook clearly maps the process for any town, or individual, interested in solarizing their community.
