The Sharon Solar Network is a group of Sharon residents who have installed solar panels, and are happy to share their experiences. To get in touch with them, contact Paul Lauenstein at 781-784-2986 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The popularity of solar power is growing fast in Massachusetts. The official goal of 250 megawatts of solar generating capacity was reached in 2013–four years ahead of schedule! A new goal of 1,600 megawatts has been set.
Thanks to generous financial incentives, you can lease solar panels with no up-front cost whatsoever. The modest lease payments are lower than the savings on your electric bills, so you end up paying less for electricity.
Thinking of transitioning to solar? There are lots of good companies out there! Sustainable Sharon has received local recommendations for three solar companies.
Each of these companies have offered to provide SSC with a bonus if the referral results in an installed solar system. So please mention SSC when you contact these companies.
