FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACTS: Marie Nolan Medfield Solar Coach (508) 361-8786 Susan Boucher New England Clean Energy (978) 567-6527 SOLARIZE MEDFIELD REACHES TIER 2! MEDFIELD, Mass., Sept. 12, 2016 – With the signing of a contract for a 14,400-watt solar electric system, the Solarize Medfield community solar initiative has reached Tier 2 savings, Solar Coach and Medfield Energy Committee member Marie Nolan announced today. Since the program began in July, more than 130 people have expressed interest, and homeowners have signed up for a total of 30.7 kilowatts (kW) of emissions-free solar. “This is a great start to our program, which is saving homeowners thousands of dollars by going solar. The Tier 1 price offered by our installer New England Clean Energy is already a substantial discount off market prices. If we reach Tier 5, people can save hundreds or even thousands more, depending on their system sizes, all while helping the planet,” said Nolan. “I’m not surprised at reaching Tier 2 so soon. The prices we’re able to offer for this program are amazing, to be honest, and they make solar economical even on less-than-perfect roofs. Plus, the new state Mass Solar Loan makes it super easy for almost anyone who wants a loan to get one,” said Rob DeBevoise, New England Clean Energy solar consultant and a Medfield native. Solarize Medfield offers discounted prices from the start. As more people sign up and new tiers are reached, the discounts become greater. Everyone in the program gets the final discount, regardless of when in the program they sign up. Those who sign up first will have their systems installed first. The limited-time program has five tiers and runs through November. New England Clean Energy, which was selected as installer after a competitive bidding process, is offering solar electric systems for purchase, with financing available, as well as leased systems for those with limited tax liability. The company is also offering energy-efficient ductless heating and cooling systems, installed in conjunction with solar or on a standalone basis. Those systems count toward the Solarize Medfield tiers. For more information about Solarize Medfield, or to volunteer, contact Marie Nolan, Medfield Solar Coach, at (508) 361-8786 or More information can also be found at or the Solarize Medfield Facebook page. Property owners ready to have their roofs evaluated for solar can complete the registration form on the Solarize Medfield website or call New England Clean Energy directly at 978-56-SOLAR (978-567-6527). Solarize Medfield is a community program designed to help local homeowners and business owners save money and help the planet by installing solar energy systems at discounted prices. Solarize Medfield is supported by the Town of Medfield, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center and the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources, and run by local volunteers.

The company has installed 700 systems in this region since being founded 10 years ago. It has more positive reviews than any Northeast installer on independent website Solar Reviews. ###20160912-mzn-solarizemedfield-tier-2_page_2
