Now in its fourth year, Solarize Mass, a partnership between the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC), the Green Communities Division of the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) and cities and towns across the commonwealth, has led to more than 2,400 residents and business owners signing contracts for small-scale solar electricity systems, while speaking with thousands more about the economic and environmental benefits of solar electricity, energy efficiency and other clean energy technologies.

To lock in program benefits, home and business owners must sign a contract with their community's designated solar installer by December 16th, 2016.


How it works
The Solarize Mass program looks to increase the adoption of small-scale solar electricity systems through a grassroots educational campaign, driven mainly by local volunteers, and a set pricing structure that's typically 25%-30% less than the State average.

Each participating community selects a designated solar installation company, which offers set pricing. The Solarize Somerville team selected SolarFlair!

Home and business owners who want to participate can either purchase the solar electricity systems directly or enter into a lease or power purchase agreement (PPA) with the installer. Under a lease or PPA, a third party financier will own, operate and maintain the system, while the home or business owner agrees to purchase the power generated by the system at an agreed-upon rate.

The 2011, 2012 and 2013 Solarize Mass programs resulted in more than 10,000 individuals expressing interest in pursuing solar electricity. Over 2,400 residents and business owners in the 46 communities signed contracts to install over 16 megawatts of solar electricity. In addition, the number of small-scale solar electricity projects in almost every community doubled as a result of the program.
