We appreciate your interest in Connecticut Green Bank's Green Liberty Bonds, which will support critical investment in clean energy and energy efficiency projects and infrastructure throughout the State.

We are proud to announce our 2021 issuance of Green Liberty Bonds. Please see information about that offering here.  On April 15, the Connecticut Green Bank hosted a live investor webinar. You can view a recording of that presentation here.

Our 2020 issuance of Green Liberty Bonds was a success, selling out of nearly $17 million of bonds, with priority given to retail investors. These bonds helped the Connecticut Green Bank energize the green economy and confront climate change to provide all of society a healthier and more prosperous future. Through our Green Liberty Bonds, we are empowering more people to support our transition to a zero carbon economy – creating the sustainable future and modern infrastructure we want to see in our society.

Please sign up for notifications about future issuances. Together, we can achieve another order of magnitude of investment in Connecticut’s green economy and unite in support of our clean energy future!

Bryan Garcia, President and CEO

Connecticut Green Bank Announces 2021 Green Liberty Bond Issuance to Support State’s Green Energy Economy

Building upon the success of the 2020 issuance, the Connecticut Green Bank’s lower-dollar denomination bond is designed to encourage individuals to invest to confront climate change; Webinar April 15

Hartford, CT (April 10, 2021) – The Connecticut Green Bank is proud to announce its 2021 Green Liberty Bond issuance, which is anticipated to be available to retail and institutional investors on or about April 21, 2021. Green Liberty Bonds are lower-dollar denomination bonds (offered in $1,000 increments), making it easier for individual investors to consider an investment. The bond proceeds will be independently certified as financing infrastructure projects with climate and environmental benefits that will help strengthen our state’s green energy economy and create much needed jobs.

This is the Green Bank’s second Green Liberty Bond release, and builds upon the success of the July 2020 issuance, which raised $16,795,000 from retail and institutional investors in Connecticut and across the country. Retail demand was so strong that the supply of bonds could not meet the interest of those seeking to invest.

“We were very pleased by the response to our 2020 issuance of Green Liberty Bonds. In the midst of a global pandemic with so much uncertainty, the support of this new sub-category of green bonds that helps confront climate change was overwhelming,” said Bryan Garcia, President and CEO of the Connecticut Green Bank. “We hope even more retail investors in Connecticut and nationwide are able to invest in green infrastructure with us this year.”

Retail investors’ orders will be given first priority. Investors must have an account with one of the brokerage firms participating in the bond sale, or with another firm that can place an order through a brokerage firm participating in the bond sale. Interested retail investors who do not have a brokerage account should contact lead bond underwriter Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Inc. or co-underwriter Ramirez & Co., Inc. to begin the process of opening a new account. Visit https://www.ctgreenbank.com/how-to-buy-green-liberty-bonds for their contact information.

To help inform residents about the Green Bank’s mission and programs, including the 2021 Green Liberty Bond, the Green Bank will host a webinar on Thursday, April 15 from 7 – 8 pm. (register here: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5920454914183848720). The Preliminary Official Statement, notifications and bond information can be found at www.greenlibertybonds.com.

Modeled after the World War II Series-E bonds, which were purchased by more than 80 million Americans, Green Liberty Bonds are an opportunity for investors to take on the shared challenge of climate change and green infrastructure investment through the purchase of bonds. In November 2020, the Green Liberty Bond was honored by The Bond Buyer as the winner of Deal of the Year in the Innovative Financing category.

Like the previous issuance, these Green Liberty Bonds are expected to be labeled “Certified Climate Bonds” by the Climate Bonds Initiative, and compliance of the bond’s issuance with the Climate Bonds Standards will be verified by Kestrel Verifiers.
