Dalton Approves New Solar Incentive for Low-Income Residents

By Joe DurwiniBerkshires Correspondent

DALTON, Mass. — The Select Board acted unanimously on a new program Colonial Power says will incentivize solar development and bring savings to around 250 local households.

The change will come in the form of a discount for Dalton households already enrolled in the town's municipal aggregation program who meet the income guidelines. It is part of a 2020 expansion of the Department of Energy's SMART (Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target) program, and is "creating additionality while serving customers who have been left out for years," according to Mark Cappadona of Colonial Power.

Impacted customers will not need to do anything to receive the benefit of the program, Cappadona said.

"They'll receive a mailing informing them that they will begin receiving a discount. They can opt out if they wish."

In other news, the Select Board approved a new 4th of July race that will act as a replacement to the annual 5-kilometer preceding Pittsfield's Independence Day parade, which was canceled for a second year because of to COVID-19.

The 5K race route will begin and end at Wahconah Regional High School, said Town Manager Tom Hutcheson.

Registration is now open online or runners can register the day of the race from 7 to 7:30 a.m. The first 200 registered runners will receive a free hat. Bibs pickup prior to race day will be at Berkshire Running Center at 34 Depot St., Pittsfield on July 3 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
