Baker-Polito Administration Announces Seven Communities to Join State Clean Energy Program
The Baker-Polito Administration today announced that Belchertown, Nahant, Needham, North Adams, Salem, Swampscott, and Williamstown have been selected to participate in the 2019 Solarize Mass program to promote the adoption of clean energy technologies. A partnership between the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC), the Department of Energy Resources (DOER) and local communities, Solarize Mass reduces the overall cost of solar in municipalities across the state, helping residents save as much as 21 percent on average on solar pricing compared to the statewide average.
“Our administration is proud to continuing partnering with cities and towns across the Commonwealth to increase access to cost-effective clean energy technologies through the Solarize Mass program,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “This innovative partnership with municipalities and state agencies reinforces the Commonwealth’s growing clean energy sector, saves people money and reduces emissions.”
