Now through December 31, 2016, Neighborhood Solar is offering people in Watertown and Cambridge the chance to go solar at a discount through a solar group purchase program.
Massachusetts continues to provide excellent incentives for installing residential solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, and the federal government has extended the 30% tax credit on renewable energy systems, including solar PV and solar hot water systems. The goal of Neighborhood Solar is to combine these incentives and tax credits with the best solar prices and the best solar quality and craftsmanship. With this in mind, Neighborhood Solar has asked SunBug Solar to be its installer.
For the first time, Neighborhood Solar is offering solar hot water systems in addition to photovoltaic systems. Compared to the current cost of residential solar installations in Massachusetts, Neighborhood Solar’s base price on eligible PV systems represents a discount of 23%; for solar hot water systems the discount is over 25%.
Friends and neighbors using this program can reduce their electricity bill, reduce their carbon footprint, become more energy independent, and invest in renewable energy. In addition to the discounts offered through Neighborhood Solar, the program is designed to take the guesswork and mystery out of considering a solar installation.
This time-limited program is open to all residents, businesses, and nonprofit property owners in Watertown and Cambridge (a Green Cambridge program) as well as Arlington (a Sustainable Arlington program), Belmont, and Somerville. Full details are available at www.neighborhoodsolar.org.
