3/10/2012 800-DCsolar announces DCSolar Equity, the best solar funding plan available!
. Since 1974, we have been obsessed with helping folks OWN their own energy supply. A friend in the business told me whoever owns their system comes out the winner. Don't throw your money away on leases and PPAs lasting decades when we can help you own solar for $0 down in as little as 3 years. A bonus is that all your money supports our local Massachusetts economy. You deserve all possible benefits from solar!!!
1/15/2012 New MassCEC grants released - For Blocks 9 and 10, MassCEC has lowered its Commonwealth Solar 2 PV grants.
