Interactive Charts Show Exponential Growth During Solarize
Connecticut is one of the fastest growing solar states in the nation — showing huge growth in residential solar since the launch of “Solarize Connecticut”. The CT Green Bank has tracked the rise of solar in the state and recently released a huge interactive data set that shows the stunning growth in the industry.
After just 3 years you can see the impact our solarize campaigns have had on the state’s total solar installations. Check out these charts…and see the dramatic growth for yourself.
Solarize CT has installed 2,188 systems for a total of 17.1 megawatts of solar energy capacity installed, based on preliminary results. To put all that in context, the CO2 emissions we saved are the equivalent of replacing 384,922 incandescent bulbs with CFLs, keeping 1.7 million gallons of gasoline from being burned or stopping 15.8 million pounds of coal from being burned.
