The Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority (CEFIA) offers financing options to support projects involved in the Connecticut Microgrid Program.
Connecticut Green Bank is partnering with the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) to assist municipalities and developers with structuring successful applications and creating financing plans for their project.
Assistance with obtaining financing is available for the approved projects, which are designed to support reliable energy to critical facilities during times of electricity grid outages. A project must have received, or be in the process of applying for, a Connecticut Microgrid Program grant.
The Connecticut Microgrid Program is offering $45 million over three rounds (an estimated $15 million per round – with an upper limit to each grant of $3 million) to fund the design, engineering, wiring and interconnection costs for technically feasible microgrids that best address Connecticut’s energy security, reliability and clean energy goals.
