Our original goal was 100 solar installations in 2016 but we topped 260, making it the most successful program in Massachusetts!
While Direct Energy Solar(DES) will continue to service existing residential installations, as of 7/31/17 DES isn't signing up any new residential installs. However BGS continues. NeighborhoodSolar.org(NS), working with SunBugSolar.com, has been offering a group discount program for Watertown, Cambridge, Somerville and Arlington and NS has just agreed to now include Belmont. This group discount program ends October 1, 2017. So you have less than 30 days to go solar at reduced group discount rates!
Belmont Volunteer Solar Coaches can be reached at coach@BelmontGoesSolar.org or 617.855.8209 to assist with your decision. State-level financial incentives which represent a third of the installation cost will be expiring very soon so it's not too late to go solar and enjoy the financial incentives so long as you sign up before 10/1/17.
Belmont Goes Solar is a volunteer group of Belmont residents knowledgeable and enthusiastic about solar. The group is supported by the Board of Selectmen, and formed by members of the Belmont Energy Committee, Mothers Out Front, Sustainable Belmont and Belmont Light. It is not an agency, board or committee of the Town of Belmont.
You can still go solar! Here's how:
