Connecticut offers grants to retail end-use customers of electric distribution companies for the installation of customer-side distributed resources. Customer-side distributed resources are defined as "(A) the generation of electricity from a unit with a rating of not more than sixty-five megawatts on the premises of a retail end user within the transmission and distribution system including, but not limited to, fuel cells, photovoltaic systems or small wind turbines, or (B) a reduction in the demand for electricity on the premises of a retail end user in the distribution system through methods of conservation and load management, including, but not limited to, peak reduction systems and demand response systems." This program took effect in March 2006. Eligible baseload distributed generation (DG) projects will receive an award of $450 per kilowatt (kW). Electric distribution companies will purchase excess generation from the projects at the company's non-firm tariff rate. Renewable-energy projects are generally eligible, but they may receive more funding via programs administered by the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF). Awards for conservation and load-management projects will be determined on a case-by-case basis; interested applicants for these projects should contact Connecticut Light and Power (CL&P) or United Illuminating (UI).
