Adams Preparing for Small-Scale Solarize Program

Solarize Adams, part of Solarize Massachusetts, is a joint initiative of MassCEC and the Department of Energy Resources's Green Communities Division, local municipal officials and community volunteers.

Solarize is designed to increase the adoption of small-scale solar electricity within a community by using community outreach and education to leverage group purchasing. The more contracts signed, the lower the cost for everybody.

The installer partner for Solarize Adams will be selected in February and homeowners and businesses will have from then through June 30 to enroll in the program.

The 2011 and 2012 Solarize Mass program resulted in more than 6,000 individuals expressing interest in pursuing solar electricity. More than 900 residents and business owners in the 21 communities signed contracts to install 5.6 megawatts-plus of solar electricity. In addition, the number of small-scale solar electricity projects in almost every community doubled as a direct result of the program.
