Boston, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Alteris Renewables and SunRun announced that they are bringing SunRun’s program to turn home solar into a monthly service, like cable or any other utility, to the state of Massachusetts. Through the program, upfront costs for a homeowner to install solar electric systems go from US $30,000 to as little as $1,000.
This is the first time that the SunRun service is available on the East Coast. As part of the service homeowners do not need to maintain, repair or insure their systems. Alteris will install the systems and customers can even get all the new tax advantages available for installing solar without any of the paperwork, making it the easiest way to get a solar electric system on the home.
“For the past 30 years and with more than 2000 satisfied solar customers, we’ve been a leader in providing solar to the Northeast,” said Ron French, president of the Solar Business of Alteris Renewables. “Now, with SunRun, we’ve made it as easy as paying your electric bill, only cheaper. For consumers with a sunny home site, there’s no longer any reason not to join in helping preserve the planet for our children.”
Electricity rates in Massachusetts have nearly doubled over the last 20 years. If these trends continue, a typical customer could recover their upfront payment in as little as 2 years and see an after-tax return on their investment of as much as 60% or more.
