N class=articleBody>The number of homes using the sun as a power source is expected to more than double this year as Connecticut embraces solar power technology in the face of higher energy costs.

Charlie Moret, managing director for the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund, recently said there are 15 homes in Connecticut that get at least some power from solar energy systems and that 17 more are installing the equipment.

The 17 homeowners are taking advantage of a 5-month-old CCEF program that will cover half the cost up to $25,000 of installing a system.

CCEF also added $9 million to the fund that helps businesses adopt solar technology, but that program hasn't seen the same surge in interest as the one for residents.
