Program to last one more month through the end of May
Solarize Milton Program available for all Milton homes and businesses
The town sponsored sign up deadline for the Solarize Milton Program has been extended to June 1. This program is available for all Milton homes and businesses, and offers pricing 15-20% lower than the average cost for solar.
Milton is now one of approximately 85 Massachusetts communities who have approved the Solarize program modeled by the Mass Clean Energy Center to promote Solar electric PV installations for homes and businesses. Solarize Massachusetts, now in its 8th year, has resulted in over 3300 solarized properties and 22 megawatts of contracted capacity.
The great news about solar electric is that the technology is getting better even while the costs are dropping. As a result, buildings once considered marginal for harvesting the sun due to orientation and shade are now seen as viable investments. Over 50 % of homes in Milton are now eligible for solar systems returning 15-20% ROI. After a 4 -7 year payback, you own the system and all the kilowatts produced.
The starting Solar PV tier price is $ 3.08 per watt in this program, but that cost will dip down in steps as the number of homes increases, to a base of $ 3.00 per watt if the program gets to over 400 KW’s ( or 100 homes with average of 4KW per home). The more Milton contract commitments the lower the price.
