Greenskies Clean Energy installs 645 kW of solar for Connecticut town

Greenskies Clean Energy recently constructed four solar arrays totaling 645 kW at municipal buildings throughout Glastonbury, Connecticut.

Greenskies installed solar panels on rooftops at three schools — Buttonball Lane (201 kW), Hopewell (239 kW), and Naubuc (92 kW) Elementary Schools — and at the town hall (113 kW). The company will operate and maintain the solar arrays.

These four projects alone are expected to save the town an additional $967,000 in energy costs over the next 20 years. By using a solar power purchase agreement, the installations were completed at no upfront cost to Glastonbury, which will also benefit from reduced electricity rates.

“Glastonbury has long embraced alternative energy solutions for cost savings and operational benefits,” said Richard J. Johnson, Glastonbury town manager. “Transitioning to solar has proven to be a cost-effective approach and it is consistent with the town’s longstanding and ongoing commitment to sustainable practices and operations. This recent project is one of many town efforts to reduce energy costs and implement environmentally-friendly infrastructure at Town-owned facilities.”

Greenskies is also installing a solar canopy carport at the Glastonbury Police Department. These raised structures will generate clean energy and provide shade and protection from the weather to visitors and employees alike.

“Greenskies is proud to help the Town of Glastonbury implement solar at more properties and realize greater cost savings on their energy use. These savings will no doubt translate into more funds for other important programs and services,” said Stanley Chin, president and CEO of Greenskies. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with the Town of Glastonbury for many years to come.”
