The solar rebate program in Massachusetts, called Commonwealth Solar,has received all the applications it needs to meet its goal of 27MW ofsolar power in the state by 2012. The program is now closed to newapplicants.
With MA Governor Deval Patrick’s outspoken support for renewabletechnologies, solar power most certainly included, the state mayintroduce another program–who knows. And the federal government’sgenerous solar incentive is still in place: any home or business ownercan receive 30 percent of the cost of a solar installation in the formof a federal tax credit. Nevertheless this will slow solar growth inMassachusetts at least in the short term. As always, GetSolar will keepyou posted.
