Our sympathies go out to those affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean and Florida.

We always tell our customers that Massachusetts is one of the best states to go solar in, and it’s not just us saying it. It’s a fact. Massachusetts is ranked sixth in the country for best states for solar energy, and it’s because of the state incentives, innovation, and the enthusiasm of Massachusetts residents for renewable energy. High electric rates in the State are another reason that solar can be so profitable in Massachusetts. In 2015, Massachusetts had the 5th highest electric rates in the country. People often think of sunny states like California being better for solar than Massachusetts, but the annual average price per kilowatt of electricity in 2015 was 15.50 cents in California and 16.86 cents in Massachusetts. This just over 10 cent difference is enough to make up for the less sunny climate in Massachusetts. The State is helping to drive the country in solar jobs, installations, and growth projections, playing an instrumental role in building a more sustainable future.

To accurately compare fossil fuels to solar energy, you have to include those hidden costs of each. [Read more…]
