Next Steps and Deadlines for Solarize Mass

Last month Wayland, Lincoln and Sudbury received a joint Solarize Massachusetts grant to facilitate the installation of solar panels in those communities.

Residential and business owners in Wayland who are interested in going solar must be under contract by Sept. 30, 2012 to take advantage of the pricing and facilitation of the process offered under a Solarize Massachusetts grant.

Wayland, Lincoln and Sudbury were together selected as communities to benefit from one of 13 Solarize Massachusetts grants awarded in April. The collaboration means that one solar installer will be retained to provide installation to residential and commercial customers who wish to take part.

Solarize Massachusetts is a state-sponsored program that "provides a framework for municipalities, homeowners and solar installers to work collaboratively to maximize cost-savings and energy efficiency benefits."

The installer for Wayland, Sudbury and Lincoln has not yet been determined, but will likely be in place by the first week of June, according to a press release. Once the installer is named, site visits can be completed and contracts can be executed.

Pricing under the system is determined on a tiered basis, meaning the more people who sign up, the less expensive it will be for everyone.

On May 31, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (CEC) will present the talk "Solar: 101" at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School. Information about solar energy as well as about the Solarize program in particular will be presented.

In addition to the Mass CEC talk, solar coaches are available to answer questions and address concerns. Since the three towns will be under a single contract with a single installer, any of the town solar coaches can offer assistance and information.

More information is also available on Solarize Lincoln, Sudbury, Wayland website.
