Planning Board to host solar energy seminar


February 27, 2011
STURBRIDGE — When it comes to solar energy, three of the most common questions residents often ask involve how it works, how much a system costs, and how many environmental advantages it has.

The Sturbridge Planning Board will offer residents a chance to have their questions answered on Tuesday, March 29, as it will host a free solar energy seminar beginning at 6:30 p.m. inside the second floor conference room at Town Hall. The presentation will provide an overview of solar technology and will also explain how Massachusetts residents can reduce their energy consumption and spin their electric meters backwards by purchasing the right photovoltaic equipment.

In addition, Sunlight Solar Energy Inc. representatives Dan Britton and Amy Levine will discuss the various state and federal incentives that reduce the cost of solar energy for homeowners, explain why solar energy is viable in Massachusetts, describe the ideal site conditions for solar energy systems, and the inform residents about the average payback period for such systems in Massachusetts.
