Investing in Solar Panels 101

March 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Carriage House Solar Panels

*** Rescheduled to Tuesday March 27th due to weather ***

This workshop is for homeowners that would like to achieve a good ROI from a solar panel investment.

Carlton Jones, a solar enthusiast and mechanical/energy engineer, will be speaking to help prospective solar owners make the best decisions for installing a cost-effective, efficient, and (above all) profitable solar array.

This workshop is not affiliated with any particular solar group. It will give you the tools and knowledge to pick a great solar supplier yourself.

Topics covered will include:

  • Is solar right for your home?
  • Common pitfalls when investing in solar
  • The benefits of owning (rather than leasing) solar panels
  • The simple mechanics of a solar array
  • How to choose a solar design group
  • How to assess the potential ROI from a solar investment
  • How net-metering (selling energy to the grid) works
  • Government initiatives like SREC (Solar Renewable Energy Credits) and SMART (Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target) that support solar owners

In the first part of the workshop, Carlton will guide the group around the ifarm solar array, and make simple sense of the system. Then we will have a lecture and Q/A session in the farmhouse.
