February 20th 2020, Springfield, MA – Non-profit Home City Development has partnered with Endless Energy to install solar PV arrays on 19 homes in Springfield. This is part of the next phase in the ongoing rehabilitation and renovation of the E. Henry Twiggs Estates in Springfield.
The addition of solar panel arrays will not only offset 7,640,291 lbs of CO2 in the atmosphere over the next 30 years, but also eliminate or significantly reduce the electricity bills for some residents. Funded in part by the MassHousing agency, TD Bank, and Home City Development, this effort demonstrates Massachusetts’ continued commitment to helping its residents achieve top tier levels of climate resiliency and energy independence.
Many homeowners and renters cite monthly heating and electric bills as major points of anxiety. The reduction or elimination of these costs puts more money back into residents’ pockets, and therefore more money into back into local economies. In fact, few investments have as high return on investment as energy saving measures such as insulation, HVAC upgrades, and solar PV.
This new effort in Springfield comes as little surprise, considering Massachusetts has long been a leader in offering incentives and rebates for citizens wishing to improve their home’s energy efficiency. In addition to the 26% federal tax credit, Massachusetts residents can also take advantage of state tax credits, and utilize the SMART program to be paid for their solar production. The Mass Save Program offers homeowners and landlords no-cost whole-home LED lighting upgrades; no-cost targeted air sealing; 75%-off blown-in insulation; and generous rebates on heating system upgrades.
Endless Energy is a top rated Mass Save Partner, and has been helping residents in Massachusetts reduce or eliminate their electric and heating bills for over 12 years.
