Leasing A Rooftop Solar System
In Connecticut, a mixture of subsidies, high energy prices and ingenuity has made for fertile ground for companies that lease rooftop solar systems. At least 1,350 residences in the state are leasing such systems, with plans for thousands more. And the capital is flowing in to private firms as well as the state's clean energy office to support the programs.
