The installation of 356 solar panels at the town’s senior living retirement community is expected to save the facility $40,000 a year in energy costs.

The project, at the Covenant Living of Cromwell new Town Center, is projected to save $1.4 million over the next 20 years according to a press release.

Executive Director Dan Stegbauer says this is part of the community’s commitment to conserve energy and become more sustainable for the future while lowering operational expenses, the agency said.

The panels help to avoid releasing CO2 in the atmosphere, and generates enough power to that equal to providing energy for more than 23 homes in the state, the news release said. The project was done in partnership with Titan Energy and Greenskies Clean Energy.
