This funding is specifically restricted for the Amity Teen Center energy conservation project which primarily includes expanding its solar panel installation.

The NAA is a corporate tax credit program administered by the State of Connecticut.

Teen Center President Jane Opper said, “We have also been supported in our initial and expanded programs by UIL Holdings and the Connecticut Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority.”

“By conserving energy, we are both teaching the teens about the importance of energy conservation and reducing our electric bills which allows us to use the savings for our programs,” Opper said. “We can monitor the solar savings at solaros.datareadings.com  Since the original installation in May of 2013, we have generated 8,131 kwh and saved $1,400.”
