Connecticut Getting More Residential Solar with NRG Home Solar Expansion


NRG Home Solar expands into Connecticut, bringing not only more solar but also more jobs to the state. Is this another sign that solar is on the rise in Connecticut?


Residential solar provider NRG Home Solar, formerly Roof Diagnostics Solar, today announced that it’s expanding its U.S. operations to Connecticut. The company will provide homeowners in the Constitution State with the opportunity to install solar at little to no upfront cost, allowing them to lower their electricity bills. As part of the expansion, the company opened its doors to the new Connecticut headquarters in Middletown, where it will offer fully integrated solar solutions throughout the state.

While Connecticut is not one of the top solar states, more solar companies are increasing their presence there — and even home solar loans are becoming available in the state.

“Connecticut is a rapidly increasing market for solar technology where we anticipate fast growth and continued expansion to help homeowners bring their homes into the future with cleaner and cheaper energy,” said Kelcy Pegler Jr of NRG Home Solar.

NRG Home Solar says it’s the number one solar company in the majority of states in which it operates. It’s bringing more jobs to Connecticut, with more than 75 new positions expected in its new office in a variety of different levels within the first year as it continues to grow in the state.

“We are excited to announce that we will be aggressively expanding our operations in Connecticut with the goal of hiring 75 new team members, who will be instrumental as we grow in this market,” added Pegler Jr. “NRG Home Solar allows homeowners and businesses to lease solar panels for little to no upfront costs. By taking advantage of solar PV rooftop technology, they are able to lock in cheaper, long-term energy costs while also reducing their carbon footprint.”
