Solarize Bourne

The Solarize Massachusetts (Solarize Mass) Bourne program looks to increase the adoption of small-scale solar electricity systems through a grassroots educational campaign, driven mainly by Bourne volunteers, and a tiered pricing structure that increases the savings for everyone as more home and business owners in town sign up.

Bourne representatives have selected a partnership between Cotuit Solar and E2 Solar as the designated installers for the program. The companies are offering a five-tiered pricing structure in which the savings will increase for everyone as more contracts are signed.

Home and business owners who want to participate can either purchase the solar electricity systems directly or enter into a lease or power purchase agreement (PPA) with the installer. Under a lease or PPA, the installer will own, operate and maintain the system, while the home or business owner agrees to purchase the power generated by the system at an agreed-upon rate.

Outreach efforts in Bourne are being led by Solar Coach Richard Elrick, who can answer questions and assist home and business owners looking for more information on the program.
