Naugatuck Valley Solar Landing Page

NVCOG is committed to encouraging the development of solar energy in our region. To that end, we have partnered with SolSmart, a nationally-recognized certification program funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, to remove barriers and take actions in support of solar. In December of 2023, NVCOG was awarded Silver designation for our actions.
