MassCEC has partnered with the Low-Income Energy Affordability Network (LEAN) to install solar hot water (SHW) systems on multi-family residential and nonprofit facilities serving low income residents and participants across the Commonwealth. This program aims to demonstrate reductions in energy operating costs for owners, educate the installer industry, and improve consistency and competitiveness of bids for solar thermal.
On March 1, 2012, LEAN began accepting applications for the second year of the Low Income Solar Thermal Program. Projects will be selected during Spring of 2012, put out to bid throughout the summer, and installed by December 31, 2012.
To receive application information, project bids and updates about the program, email Bruce Ledgerwood at LEAN (firstname.lastname@example.org) to add your name to the Low Income Solar Thermal email distribution list.
LEAN procured two experienced technical firms, BEAM and Paradigm Partners, to assist in managing the solar thermal projects. The LEAN management team selects projects based on site location, storage capacity, hot water consumption, roof integrity, and client commitment. The following process is then conducted for each solar thermal project selected:
