Our Wellesley Community Now Has the Opportunity to Be Part of Something Bigger: Solar
It is now easier and more affordable than ever to install solar panels on
your home and produce your own electricity with Wellesley’s
MORE POWER TO CHOOSE program. By going solar you help the environment and
your community, while saving on your electric bills.
GENERATE YOUR OWN ENERGY
“You are invited to come learn how installing solar panels and producing
your own clean, green electricity can save youmoney on March 26,”
said Ellen Korpi, Chair of the Sustainable Energy Committee.
“Bring neighbors and friends to hear about the discounted group
pricing with a rebate from Wellesley’s Municipal Light Plant and generous
state and federal incentives,” Korpi said.
WELLESLEY SOLAR KICK-OFF MEETING
Wednesday, March 26th
7 pm – 8:30 pm
Sprague School Cafeteria, 401 School Street
The Town of Wellesley’s Sustainable Energy Committee is the sponsor of this
program. Astrum Solar is Wellesley’s installer partner. To sign up for a
free site evaluation, and to learn about a variety of energy efficiency
options here in town, please go to WellesleyPowerToChoose.com.
CAN YOU AFFORD SOLAR?
Right now, a combination of low solar panel prices and generous incentives
makes solar power a compelling and surprisingly affordable, profitable and
low-risk investment. This comes at a time when electricity costs throughout
New England are projected to increase by 12% or more over the next few
LOWER YOUR ELECTRICITY BILLS
For homes with good sunlight, annual rates of return exceed 15% and payback
can be as short as 5 years for a system that will produce power for 25
years or more. The tiered pricing structure means that the more Wellesley
homeowners that sign up, the more the price decreases for everyone who
participates in the program. In addition, homeowners can reduce their
monthly electric bill from every kilowatt-hour produced.
NOW IS THE TIME TO GO SOLAR. TOGETHER WELLESLEY.
The first 10 customers to purchase solar panels will receive a $1,000
discount. In addition, for every contract signed, Astrum Solar will donate
$100 worth of solar equipment to our community. Act now! The solar
program ends July 31, 2014.
More than 30 communities in Massachusetts have already participated in
similar programs and Wellesley is one of 16 more – including Needham and
Lexington – that are rolling them out this year.
