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.
Sunny Cambridge has lined up local solar installers through the EnergySage Solar Marketplace, which helps you request, receive, and compare solar quotes 100% online, with support available every step of the way. Check out the resources below for information about solar options for single family, multi-family, and condo buildings in Cambridge.
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.
The Solar Access program for middle-income homeowners provides support, incentives and financing for solar plus heating & cooling using heat pumps. Learn more about the MassCEC sponsored program.
