2016 Solarize Mass (WCGW)
Solarize Mass WCGW - consisting of the Western Massachusetts communities of Windsor, Cummington, Goshen and Worthington - successfully completed their 2016 Solarize Mass campaign resulting in residents contracting for over 766 kilowatts of solar capacity! As part of the program, the communities partnered with the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, Department of Energy Resources, and the installer SunBug Solar, and their efforts resulted in residents in the four communities contracting a total of 90 systems, doubling the number of small-scale solar projects installed prior to the program. Through the hard work of Solarize Mass volunteers and the SunBug team, Solarize Mass WCGW surpassed the highest pricing tier, resulting in the lowest possible prices for all customers. By choosing to go solar, the 90 residents elected to lower their utility bills and will collectively reduce carbon emissions equivalent to removing 65 cars off the road annually. Congratulations to all the partners for a job well done!
