The town of Manchester has joined the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund's (CCEF) SmartPower 20% by 2010 campaign – representing the forty-fifth municipality in the state to commit to the fund's program.

CCEF is the founder and lead financial sponsor of SmartPower, which offers communities incentives and tools to expand their commitment to clean energy. Through the program, CCEF provides ‘earned’ solar photovoltaic (PV) systems to cities and towns that first commit to the 20% by 2010 campaign and then secure a threshold number of clean energy sign-ups through the CTCleanEnergyOptions program.

Because of the town's commitment to CTCleanEnergyOptions, which allows customers of Connecticut Light & Power and United Illuminating to sign up and support clean energy from one of the two state-sanctioned suppliers – Sterling Planet or Community Energy – the town will receive a 2 kW solar PV system from CCEF.
