Frequently asked questions

The 10 Clean Energy Policy Principles are designed to guide an economy-wide transition to clean energy and a net-zero electricity supply in Connecticut by 2040. They have been written to address and integrate business interests in addition to climate and energy goals.

Business leaders from more than 40 companies who believe scaling clean energy in Connecticut is good for business met over the course of a year to draft the clean energy policy principles. This effort was led by CT Energy Future.

CT Energy Future is an assembly of interested businesses and partner organizations, the Connecticut Sustainable Business Council, the Nature Conservancy, and the CT Green Bank working together to create a unified business voice for clean energy policy.

For-profit companies, social enterprises, B-Corporations, hospitals, and universities are eligible.
