Going solar in Massachusetts
Home energy experts
For the past 10 years, Independent Power Systems has been building wind and solar grid-tied, off-grid, and battery backup systems in Massachusetts. With the numerous financial incentives for renewable energy solutions that have come out over the years in Massachusetts, there has never been a better time to invest in the future of energy. In fact, the clean energy sector has grown to make up 3% of the Massachusetts workforce, with over 1500 jobs added since 2018.
Our highly-skilled Massachusetts team are your experts in understanding all of your financial incentives that influence your return on investment, including the newly-introduced SMART program.
With a heritage of off-grid, our interest is in providing you energy resilience so you’re protected when the grid fails due to weather, impacts of climate change, or any other threat to our fragile power grid. We will act as your personal consultants to find the most appropriate technologies for your system and determine the best financial outcome for your asset.
What is a microgrid?
What is a microgrid? A microgrid consists of power generation and storage and is able to allow its loads to be grid-connected or ‘island’ from the grid during an outage to effectively independently function in an off-grid application.
These loads could consist of
Massachusetts has a number of incentives and grant programs available for microgrid projects, particularly for those that create impact and prioritize resilience for those that need it most. In the past, we have worked with cities, non-profits, and business to bridge the gaps that create inequality, vulnerability, and systemic failures in our societal and energy systems.
Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART)
A new (2018) solar power incentive program is being heralded as an important step forward in creating a Massachusetts solar policy that’s more equitable, predictable and ultimately, beneficial to more organizations throughout the Commonwealth.
The Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART) program aims to expand the benefits of solar power by incentivizing solar projects on a consistent basis. The SMART program, the product of a robust statewide input process by the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER), will enable the state to more than double its solar capacity from 1500 MW to 3.2 GW while providing more consistent incentives.
