Headquartered in North Haven, Greenskies Clean Focus was recognized by the Connecticut Green Bank as an outstanding partner for its involvement with the Solar Marketplace Assistance Program for Towns & Cities. Greenskies was the installation partner for the inaugural round of municipalities participating in Solar MAP.

Announcing its 2022 award-winners, the Connecticut Green Bank said the honorees are “key partners in the dedicated network of contractors, developers, lending partners, community leaders, and home and building owners.”

In the news release, Connecticut Green Bank states, “Greenskies was competitively selected to install 11 projects in Branford, Manchester, Mansfield and Portland, totaling 2.8 MW of solar using the Green Bank's Solar PPA, which are producing electricity and helping to reduce costs. Greenskies was a key driver in getting these projects to completion despite many hurdles in the industry from COVID-related supply chain impacts on equipment and timelines.”

Thanks to stake-holders such as Greenskies, the Connecticut Green Bank said it “has helped create more than 26,000 job years and 66,000 clean energy projects since 2011.”

On its company website, Greenskies Clean Focus says it “offers a full suite of decarbonization solutions, including onsite and offsite solar, battery storage, microgrids, and CCHP.
