Massachusetts ranks in the top 4 states with the most solar electric capacity and has played a huge role in the growth of the solar industry within the past few years. In fact, there are almost 50 solar panels for every seat at Fenway Park.

Most of our customers have been coming from referrals: once a neighbor sees how sleek the SunPower panels look, and hears how much the solar power system is offsetting in monthly electricity costs, they can’t help but give us call. We’ve installed solar electric systems all over the Boston area; the next time you’re driving through Roxbury, Newton, Beverly, Salem, Ipswich, or the surrounding towns in Massachusetts, look up, you may just see a solar electric system that was installed by us.

Incentives

Massachusetts is unique in the sense that state incentives make getting a solar power system very attractive while hurricane season, and an aging utility grid, makes it perfect for installing a battery backup system. An automatic battery backup system can be added to any grid-tie solar PV system, new or old. The extra incentive to add battery backup to a system that’s currently being installed is that you get to take advantage of the 30% Federal Investment Tax Credit not just on the solar part of your system, but the battery backup as well. Hurry though, the 30% tax credit expires in 2016!

Commonwealth Solar II

The Commonwealth Solar II rebate program provides rebates for homeowners and businesses in Massachusetts who install solar photovoltaics (PV). Rebates are granted through a non-competitive application process for the installation of photovoltaic (PV) projects by professional, licensed contractors at residential, commercial, industrial, institutional and public facilities. In addition to the base incentive, further incentives (“adders”) are available for installations using components manufactured in Massachusetts, for individuals with moderate income or home values, and for those who are rebuilding in the wake of a natural disaster. For all systems, rebates are calculated by multiplying the per watt incentive (base incentive plus adders) times the nameplate capacity of the system, up to 5 kilowatts (kW); projects are eligible for rebates only if their total capacity is under 15kW. Further eligibility requirements apply, and potential rebate recipients should read the full terms. (Source)
