AMHERST, Mass. (WWLP) - Dozens of Amherst residents found out about going green to save green in their homes and businesses.
About 70 people attended Thursday night’s Town Hall workshop called “Solarize Amherst, Solar 101″. They found out how they could save money harnessing the power of the sun to generate their own electricity.
They were told can save money on energy bills and on the conversion as well.
“Under the ‘Solarize Amherst’ program, you’re going to see installation costs be about 20% below the current state average,” said Zachary Swan of Northeast Solar Design.
Workshop attendees were told that real estate properties with solar installations sell quicker.
Amherst residents can take advantage of Solarize Amherst discounts from February through June.
