Massachusetts Solar Power
Massachusetts is home to over 6 Million People that needs lots and lots of electricity, especially in the summer when the A/C is running in many homes throughout the state. The demand for electricity in Massachusetts is so great that it draws power from other states.
If you own your home you can reap the great benifits of a solar system by either taking out a loan or paying cash. No matter how you choose to get your Solar System installed you will see a great return on your investment year after year.
The best thing about solar in Massachusetts might be the state's SREC market, which can make solar homeowners thousands of dollars over their systems' lifetimes. An SREC is a certificate of renewable energy generation, and you get one each time your solar panels have generated a megawatt-hour (MWh). A 5-kW system in Massachusetts will produce about 6 MWh of electricity per year, and the utility companies will pay you about $285 per SREC.
