Mass. Environment Group Draws Lessons From Local Clean Energy Projects
"In Worcester County, the Mendon-Upton Solarize Mass Plus program hosted webinars and conducted other outreach efforts to teach residents about six different "green technologies" — solar photovoltaics, battery storage, solar hot water, air source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps and electric vehicles.
Residents have signed 65 contracts with the program so far, according to the report, including 31 for air source heat pumps and 30 for solar photovoltaic systems."

ACE Solar offers to donate the benefits of a 25kW solar PV system to a Mendon or Upton area school, nonprofit or community organization
ACE Solar will donate the benefits of a 25 kW system to a nonprofit if Mendon-Upton Solarize Mass Plus program exceeds 250 kW of installed solar capacity in Mendon and Upton. The Solarize program is close; only 2-3 more solar PV systems need to be installed at Mendon or Upton homes or businesses to reach the goal. The school, nonprofit or community organization would save money on their electric bills and 25 kW of solar power would be added to the community, which annually would offset the equivalent of emissions from burning 25,000 pounds of coal each year.
You can help us reach our goal! Consider getting a free estimate for Solar PV from ACE Solar.
