The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund, a Rocky Hill, Conn.-headquartered organization that develops and invests in clean energy sources for Connecticut residents, and SmartPower, a Hartford, Conn.-based non-profit group that promotes clean energy, were the joint recipients of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Energy's 2006 Green Power Pilot Award for their Connecticut Clean Energy Communities Program.

The award acknowledges innovative initiatives intended to foster the growth of clean energy. The communities program is a marketing project to increase demand and use of clean energy through the creation of marketing partnerships between city/town officials and civic leaders. Customers of Connecticut Light & Power and United Illuminating Co., Conn.-based power utilities, can select electricity produced from wind and hydropower through the Clean Energy Communities Program.

"SmartPower is honored to receive the EPA's 2006 Green Power Pilot Award for our work promoting clean energy throughout the U.S.," says Brian F. Keane, SmartPower's president. "We applaud the decisions and actions of the communities and businesses that we've worked with to commit to 20 percent clean energy by 2010."
