SCEF Program Status and Overview

As part of Public Act 18-50 signed into law by Gov. Lamont on May 24, 2018, the state of Connecticut directed Eversource and The United Illuminating Company (UI) to launch a program to promote, fund and expand the installation of new community renewable generation projects.

This SCEF program creates a market-driven bidding process for projects to compete to obtain a 20-year revenue stream from the sale of RECs and energy to the electric utilities.

SCEF projects will help broaden participation in clean energy in Connecticut by providing underserved customers with an opportunity to benefit from in-state clean energy projects. The Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) directed Eversource and UI to administer the SCEF program in Docket No. 19-07-01 on December 18, 2019.

PURA has assigned this Program and its associated filings and decisions under Docket Nos. 19-07-01 and 19-07-01RE02, which can be found on
