CCEF Finance / Investment Authority
In Connecticut, there is a central government agency that grants contractors the right to have access to the state funding.
Currently, that list contains 74 installation companies for solar electrical installations, and this list is available at the bottom of this post.
Right now, of those, only 29 contain endorsement for the Solar Lease, which is a system of finance that does not allow you to own the system that you install until after 15 years, where you're given the option to buy it.
