SOLARIZE MEDFIELD REACHES TIER 4 WITH ONE MONTH LEFT IN COMMUNITY SOLAR PROGRAM
MEDFIELD, Mass., Nov. 1, 2016 – With the signing of a contract for a 14,400-watt solar electric system by Heidi and Tripp Johnson on Hospital Road, the Solarize Medfield community solar initiative has reached Tier 4 savings, Solar Coach and Medfield Energy Committee member Marie Nolan announced today. Since the program began in July, nearly 200 people have expressed interest, and homeowners have signed up for a total of 109 kilowatts (kW) of emissions-free solar.
“Achieving Tier 4 is fantastic but we’ve got a lot of work to do to hit the final Tier 5 before the program ends on November 30. If you’ve ever thought about solar, this is the time to look into it. And don’t worry if another installer said your roof is too shady or the financials don’t work for you. The Solarize pricing is so good that a lot of borderline roofs are proving very economical,” said Nolan.
“Now is the time to band together to help make Medfield a clean community, and to help your neighbors get the lowest possible prices on solar. Panel choices include the most powerful panel available today, and an all-black panel that fades into the roof. We’re also installing ductless mini-split heating and cooling systems under the Solarize program,” said Mark Durrenberger, president of New England Clean Energy.
Solarize Medfield offers discounted prices from the start. As more people sign up and new tiers are reached, the discounts become greater. Everyone in the program gets the final discount, regardless of when in the program they sign up. Those who sign up first will have their systems installed first. The limited-time program has five tiers and runs through November.
New England Clean Energy, which was selected as installer after a competitive bidding process, is offering solar electric systems for purchase, with financing available, as well as leased systems for those with limited tax liability. The company is also offering energy-efficient ductless heating and cooling systems, installed in conjunction with solar or on a standalone basis. Those systems count toward the Solarize Medfield tiers.
