Helping more Needham residents benefit by installing Solar PV
In 2014 Green Needham brought the Solarize program to Needham, resulting in the installation of over 130 solar PV systems in just over a year. Since that time, solar installations have continued to grow as more Needham residents have learned about the benefits. As of early 2017, there are over 350 homes generating electricity through solar PV. Green Needham’s Going Solar pages are here to help you get started.
If you have installed solar and would like to help your neighbors and friends to do the same, please consider becoming a solar ambassador and/or joining our Solar Team. Please contact Nick Hill or Donna Vello for more information.
