Solarize Mass. program looks for power adoption

Posted 1/28/13

BOSTON – The Mass. Clean Energy Center and the Mass. Department of Energy Resources have announced the launch of the 2013 Solarize Massachusetts program.

According to a news release, the program is designed to increase the adoption of solar energy, further reduce the overall cost of solar power – offers residents and businesses discounted pricing for solar. The more people sign up, the greater the savings for everyone.

The program is open to all Massachusetts communities, including those designated by the Department of Energy Resources as Green Communities, which meet five “clean” energy requirements and commit to reducing energy use by 20 percent.

Individual cities, towns and groups of contiguous municipalities can apply by downloading a request for proposals and applying by Feb. 20

In 2012, 17 cities and towns participated in the program, with 803 residents and businesses signing contracts to install solar electricity systems with the capacity to generate 5.1 megawatts of clean, renewable energy – enough to power the equivalent of 807 average Massachusetts homes annually.

Additionally, according to the release, the program was also directly responsible for the creation of 32 new jobs.
