Environmental Justice and Clean Energy Development

The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) wants to hear from YOU! As more clean energy generating facilities are built in Connecticut through the Statewide Shared Clean Energy Facility Program(SCEF), DEEP is exploring incentives for facilities located in and/or providing additional benefits to Environmental Justice communities.
 
DEEP is hosting a public meeting on August 15, 2022 at 6pm on Zoom to discuss the SCEF program and hear from members of the public, especially Environmental Justice community members, local leaders, and municipal officials. DEEP seeks your feedback to ensure any incentive maximizes benefits to Environmental Justice communities, minimizes harm to these communities, and is fair to developers.  Please spread the word and invite anyone who might be interested in this conversation!
