Solarize Salem-Swampscott

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

Salem-Swampscott representatives have selected as the designated installer RGS Energy for their program. RGS Energy is 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.
Local Contact

Outreach efforts in Salem will be led by Solar Coach Jeffrey Cohen and efforts in Swampscott will be led by Sydney Pierce. The solar coaches can answer questions and assist home and business owners looking for more information on the program.
