A greener Wilton: Future efforts may pale due to budget cuts

Feb 23rd, 2010 | By | Category: Energy Conservation, Energy Efficiency

The future of Wilton’s energy is looking brighter — and greener — thanks in part to the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF) and the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund (CEEF), according to members of the town’s energy commission. But maybe not for long.

Earlier this month, Gov. M. Jodi Rell — “required to find alternate sources of funding” in attempt to address the state’s budget deficit, according to Dona Pratt, commission chair — proposed using the CCEF and CEEF monies to address Hartford’s problems.

At its meeting on Feb. 4, the commission voted to request that Wilton’s representatives — Senator Toni Boucher and Reps. Peggy Reeves and John Hetherington — “vigorously oppose” such a move, Ms. Pratt said.
