Woodstock gets clean prize: $24K solar middle school

The town of Woodstock on Friday will celebrate its prize for encouraging clean energy use: a new solar photovoltaic installation at Woodstock Middle School.

Woodstock participates in the Clean Energy Communities Program, where the town earns points for initiatives such as purchasing 100 percent renewable energy for municipal facilities, encouraging 130 households to sign up for the CTCleanEnergyOptions program and having 25 clean energy systems installed in town.

Because of its Clean Energy Community status, the state Clean Energy Finance & Investment Authority paid the total $24,219 cost of putting a 4 kilowatt solar electric installation on top of Woodstock Middle School.

State and local officials will hold a celebration at 10 a.m. Friday at the middle school at 147B Connecticut Route 169.
