Springfield, Longmeadow Join Solar Power Program
Two western Massachusetts communities have been chosen to participate in a state program that promotes small-scale solar power installations.
Springfield and Longmeadow have been awarded a $5,000 marketing grant to take part in Solarize Mass.
The seven-year old program, which is administered by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, provides discounted bulk pricing for people to put solar panels on the roofs of their homes or businesses.
Both communities have enlisted a “solar coach” to sign up participants.
WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Springfield Solar Coach Mike Kocsmiersky.
