There is a program of tree "pruning" starting in pilot projects in various towns throughout Connecticut. At the moment, they are towns in UI (United Illuminating) territory. This is going to be a major issue in many places. We'll be involved in this in some way but there are plans from the utilities being voted on soon by PURA (Public Utilities Reglatory Authority)

1) CLEAN ENERGY MOVES US BEYOND COAL AND OTHER DIRTY ENERGY SOURCES: Going solar supports the mission and work of the Sierra Club.
2) OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE IN CLIMATE SOLUTIONS: Going solar now supports green jobs and helps clean energy grow.
3) TESTED PROGRAM: Feedback from pilot was overwhelmingly positive—good experience with process, Sungevity, and they love using clean energy!
4) SUPPORT LOCAL CHAPTERS: National Sierra Club promotion of the Solar Homes program supports local chapters who will receive unrestricted funds for advocacy and conservation programs as well as crucial overhead costs.5) TIME IS RIGHT FOR SOLAR: Affordable leasing options are available and you can be a part of the growing solar revolution.
6) DIRTY ENERGY IS COSTING US ALL: Coal is making our kids and adults sick by polluting the air we breathe and the water we drink. Big Coal profits at the expense of people.
7) CLEAN ENERGY IS CREATING JOBS AND POWERING THE
ECONOMY: Wind and solar already provide more
jobs than the coal mining industry. Generating power with solar creates seven
times more jobs than doing so with coal.
