Connecticut seafood restaurant goes solar with PACE financing

The Connecticut Green Bank proudly announces that Westville Seafood in New Haven recently added a solar PV system to its roof using financing through the Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) program.

Westville Seafood has been serving customers with a variety of fried and grilled seafood dishes, as well as soups, salads and sandwiches since 2008. The 32.56-kW solar system is projected to produce energy cost savings of more than $240,000 over the 25-year effective useful life of the panels.

“With our peak busy season being in the summer, we use a significant amount of energy to power the restaurant, which results in higher energy costs,” said David Austin, owner of Westville Seafood. “Going solar helped offset the cost of electricity, it’s more environmentally friendly and our customers love it. We’re thankful for the help we received from the Connecticut Green Bank, who made the process easy.”
