C-TEC Solar seeks non-approval for project in Connecticut

C-TEC Solar LLC on July 19 petitioned the Connecticut Siting Council for a declaratory ruling that no Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need is required for the proposed construction, maintenance, and operation of a 3.75-MW solar photovoltaic facility to be located at 1 Ballard Road, Thompson, Connecticut.

C-TEC, a Connecticut company, said it is developing the project, with the facility to be turned over to an entity controlled by the Connecticut Green Bank once the project is completed.

The project will interconnect into the Eversource Energy system at an existing distribution feeder at Thompson Road, which is within the ISO New England market. The project is composed of 11,200 PV modules with an expected project life of about 25 years.
