Going Solar in Newton: workshop on January 21

Solar Workshop – Waban Library Center

Wednesday, January 21 at 7 PM

1608 Beacon Street, Waban, MA 02468

Brought to you by the Newton Solar Challenge team 

An educational presentation, interactive Q & A and “breakouts” covering:

  • How will solar work at my home?  How will solar “look” on my house?
  • Show me the numbers!
    • How does solar reduce increasing utility bills (after recent 30% NSTAR utility increases)?
    • How does solar provide a “payback” on investment?
    • What is a “solar loan” and how can it help me?
  • Workshop Sponsors:   Green Decade Newton, The Village Bank, BarnRaise Energy, Blue Selenium Solar and Sunlight Solar

The Newton Solar Challenge is a community solar initiative co-sponsored by Green Decade Newton and Newton-based BarnRaise Energy, a social-impact company focused on increasing local solar ownership.  The Village Bank is a partner of the Newton Solar Challenge and is offering a new solar loan to Newton residents to increase residential solar ownership in our community.  Link:
