What if houses of worship could turn the light that shines on their roofs into savings for community members?
We believe that sharing access to the clean energy and cost savings that come with solar power is one of the best ways to build just, sustainable communities. That's why we've launched the Boston Interfaith Community Solar Project, with the goal of bringing community shared solar power to five houses of worship and other nonprofits in Boston by the end of 2016.
Co-op Power will lower the cost for all participants by financing all five projects at the same time as a single portfolio.
What we’re offering houses of worship and other hosts:
Pay nothing upfront for the solar system
Purchase solar power and save 10% - 20% on monthly electric bills over 20 years
Provide solar power to community members and sister institutions
What we’re offering community members:
- Purchase solar power to save 10% - 20% on electric bills over 20 years
We are excited to announce that the Boston Interfaith Solar Project is moving forward into the financing and construction phases. As we move forward, the interactive timeline below will be updated to represent upcoming project deadlines, processes, and events.
