Solar Electric (Photovoltaics)

About Solar PV

For many residents, business owners, and municipalities throughout Massachusetts, installing a solar electric system is a smart investment that converts clean, free sunlight to electricity, reduces air pollution, reduces or eliminates monthly electricity bills, and contributes to the local economy by creating local jobs and supporting local businesses. (From MassCEC)

Solar electric systems, also known as solar photovoltaics or solar PV, convert sunlight into electrical energy through an array of solar panels that connect to a building's electrical system or directly to the electrical grid. (From How it works on MassCEC website.)

Learn about the basics of solar electricity, at the MassCEC About Solar page.

Coming soon to this site: short instructional videos about getting Solar PV for your home or business through the Mendon-Upton Solarize Mass Plus Program.

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.
