The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) applauded an announcement that the state of Massachusetts has already surpassed Governor Deval Patrick’s goal of installing 250 megawatts (MW) of solar energy by 2017. The state’s Administration now plans to expand its carve-out goal to 1.6 gigawatts.
According to SEIA and GTM Research’s U.S. Solar Market Insight report, Massachusetts ranks 7th in terms of installed solar capacity and has one of the fastest solar growth rates in the United States.
Massachusetts’ state website offers resources and information for consumers interested in solar. The state’s Solarize Mass program, run by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center and the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources, recently announced the first 13 Solarize Mass communities.
Solar 3.0 will visit Massachusetts as part of its 40-City Tour. Watch the Events blog and calendar for updates.
