The Connecticut Clean Energy Communities (CCEC) program was established to enable households to purchase green electricity (electricity that comes from renewable sources of energy). This chapter evaluates the effectiveness of the CCEC program. It illustrates the status of Connecticut households and municipalities that participated in the CCEC campaign, investigates the difference in participation rates, and examines the variables which explain the decision to participate in green electricity programs.
