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 email@example.com.
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.
