Hartford Courant

GLASTONBURY ——The town is hoping a little sunshine will help reduce its yearly electricity costs.

Over the coming months, the town and the Rocky Hill firm SolarCity will team up to install solar panels at town hall, the wastewater treatment plant, the highway garage and at Glastonbury High School. The locations were selected because they are the highest users of electricity.

SolarCity will install and operate the panel arrays. SolarCity will finance the project by using grants and energy credits. The town will purchase electricity for the buildings, and SolarCity will sell excess electricity generated to Connecticut Light & Power.
