ENERGY RESOURCE CENTER

The following links are Resources for your convenience.
(Being listed here does not constitute endorsement by Green Decade/Newton. Please see our terms of use policy.)

Green Decade Newton has been receiving requests from residents, who are eager to learn more about available solar energy options. Our organization is encouraging residents to wait until March 2013 when we will know if Newton is accepted as a partner in the Solarize Discount Program. Many solar companies offer preliminary site assessments by phone, and free site visits to your home, so in the meantime, you may start learning about the process. One website that offers a list of numerous Massachusetts solar companies (with letter grades given to some of the companies based on customer reviews) is www.MassSolarInfo.com. Green Decade, with no affiliation to this website, suggests it as a resource to obtain information about state solar incentives; it is entirely up to you should you decide to call any of the companies listed. Please note, it does not include all of the solar companies doing business in the Newton area, so keep doing research and be sure to request several opinions.
