As part of the Patrick Administration’s support of the clean energy industry, Chelmsford participated in the 2013 Solarize Massachusetts program (Solarize Mass®) that concluded October 31, 2013. The 551 residential solar electric systems contracted through this round of Solarize Mass will contribute 3.8 megawatts of clean, renewable energy capacity in the ten towns that participated. The program lowers costs by offering residents a tiered pricing structure where the savings increase as more people sign contacts. Since it started as a pilot program in 2011, Solarize Mass has been responsible for more than 1,250 solar systems across the state with 9.4 megawatts of electricity capacity.

Chelmsford had 259 residents sign up for free assessments during our seven-month program.  After initial discussions and site visits, our installer SolarFlair delivered proposals to 107 of these homeowners, and 42 signed contracts to install solar electric systems on their homes. Installations will be completed during 2014 and will result in 230 kilowatts of new electric-generating capacity in town. Aside from saving money on electricity, a typical homeowner will prevent 7 tons of CO2 from being generated every year, equivalent to the carbon sequestered by 6 acres of forest.  More than 8,400 Massachusetts workers spend at least half of their time on solar activities in the Commonwealth, according to the 2013 Massachusetts Clean Energy Industry Report. The report found that the clean energy industry as a whole grew by 11.8 percent between 2012 and 2013.
