Newton Solar Challenge!

low carbon diet

Newton has always risen to a challenge – its citizens are leaders. We are a National and State leader in environmental action, one of the first “Green Communities”.

Now, with climate change at the forefront, Newton has a unique opportunity to take action at the community and household level.

From Fall 2014 to Spring 2015, a dedicated team of local volunteers and industry professionals will help Newton residents by simplifying the residential solar process, reducing household electricity bills, and making it easy to “go solar”.

To learn more and get started, fill out this short form. Our team will contact you to provide a free satellite analysis of your home’s potential for solar.
