If, dear reader, you live in Arlington and have considered going solar then please read this.
Ryan Katofsky, Arlington’s “Solar Coach,” will be speaking Thursday, May 31 about the discounts available for solar installation. Whether you’ve considered buying or renting PV panels, wondered what it would really take to make it happen or are only considering it now for the first time, you should go to this event.
Full details in the letter below.
As you may have heard, Arlington is among 17 communities selected to participate in the 2012 Solarize Massachusetts (Solarize Mass) Program, which helps residents and business owners adopt solar photovoltaic (PV) technology. To encourage participation in the program, discounted pricing will be offered by a state-approved PV installer, with the discount increasing as more homes and businesses sign up to go solar. If you are interested (and I hope you are), please attend the “Solar 101” public meeting at Town Hall on Thursday, May 31, at 7:00pm. At this meeting you will be able to:
- Learn about solar power basics and the Solarize Mass price discount
- Hear about affordable lease and purchase options
- Meet your local Solarize Mass representatives
If you cannot make the meeting, you can learn more about the program and sign up to participate by going to www.arlingtonma.gov/energy or by calling the MassCEC at 617.315.9306. You can also follow @MassCEC on Twitter for Solarize Mass updates.
Even if it turns out that your home is not suitable for solar power, this is still a great opportunity to learn more about Solarize Mass as well as other energy saving and renewable energy options that you may be able to take advantage of.
Thanks and hope to see you there.
