The Stow Solar Challenge has been extended until Friday, May 16. To be eligible for the extension, Stow homeowners and businesses must have been in touch with the installer, New England Clean Energy by April 30, and either already have a proposal or scheduled a site visit.
The response to the Solar Challenge has been tremendous. To make sure everyone with a proposal has time to make their decisions, and to allow any last-minute candidates to look into the program, the Challenge is being extended for a short time. The goal of the Stow Solar Challenge is to get a great price for solar for as many people in town as possible.
If you already have a proposal, the deadline for signing a contract has been extended to May 16. If you have not yet contacted New England Clean Energy or had a site visit scheduled, you have until April 30 to get the site visit scheduled with New England Clean Energy, although the actual site visit can take place after that date. In all cases, you have until May 16 to sign a contract.
The original deadline for the program was April 30. To date, contracts representing 170 kilowatts of solar energy have been signed and a number of other residents have indicated they intend to move forward. To achieve Tier 5, the maximum discount level, contracts for 200 kilowatts are needed. And all participants, regardless of when they signed up for the Solar Challenge, will receive the maximum discount.
Stow homeowners and businesses wishing to have their properties evaluated for solar and to schedule site visits should contact New England Clean Energy at 978-567-6527 as soon as possible.
