National Grid wants to build New York’s largest solar energy farm on Long Island, but residents are not welcoming the plan.

Two members of Connecticut’s congressional delegation are among the co-sponsors of a bill that would create a federal so-called “green bank” to support clean energy infrastructure projects.  The legislation is modeled on a Connecticut program.

The mayor of Bridgeport, Connecticut, announced on Thursday that a new solar panel installation and fuel cell facility will be built on the site of an old city landfill. The plan is being called a model for green energy generation in the state.

Connecticut environmental officials announced Friday that the state has chosen a wind energy farm and a solar energy project to help diversify the state’s energy portfolio. The solar installation will be in Connecticut, but the wind farm will not be.
