The City of Cambridge has teamed up with EnergySage to light up our homes with solar power

It's the Cambridge Year of Solar! Sunny Cambridge is the city-wide initiative to make it easy for all types of residents to get solar power for their homes.

Solar is a smart choice for our community--not only is it clean energy, it also provides significant long-term savings. Solar paired with battery storage also helps prepare your home to withstand for the extreme weather impacts of climate change by providing electricity even when the grid power is knocked out.

Solar plus Battery Storage = Climate Preparedness

A solar installation can help you reduce greenhouse gas emissions that lead to climate change and when you add battery storage you help prepare your home for the impacts of climate change. Climate change is bringing more extreme weather and power outages. Solar paired with batteries helps provide your home with electricity when the power is out. This is especially important for people with medical equipment or other needs that require electricity at all times.
