News: Because the Solar Challenge has successfully increased the average monthly rate of solar installations in Cambridge by 800%, the Challenge will be extended until Oct. 1st.
The Solar Challenge aims to sign up 100 families this summer to install solar electric panels on their roofs. The program is supported by the City of Cambridge and is organized by HEET, an award-winning nonprofit working to reduce energy use and bills for residents.
20% discount: Our 20% discount on the base price of solar (below the state’s current average price per watt installed) is with Next Step Living, a local solar and energy-efficiency company and one of the largest green jobs providers in the state.
We can install solar on homes outside of Cambridge. Just sign up through us.
Helping nonprofits: Nonprofits help Cambridge thrive. When you get solar, the Solar Challenge will donate $300 to the nonprofit you choose from our list of participating nonprofits.
Apartments and condos can get solar.
Solar is clean electricity at a locked-in low price. Solar technology is less expensive now and there are a variety of ways to finance it. Solar panels can be purchased outright, or they can be leased to lock in your electricity rate for decades at a low rate. Learn more.
We can only offer this great discount to the first 100 families or until Oct. 1st. The first 23 contracts have already been signed. Have a solar expert look at your home. The assessment is free and can be scheduled on weekdays or weekends. Sign up for an assessment today.
