Absolutely. Especially now that Lexington has been selected for the Solarize Massachusetts program that provides fantastic group purchase prices for solar energy systems.
A typical 5,000 watt system installed in Lexington will save $25,000 in electricity costs over 20 years. That same system will cost about $10,000 at Solarize group purchase prices after Massachusetts and federal incentives. The solar array will also generate about $9,000 in SREC income over the first 10 years, resulting in a total cost of only $1,000!
That works out to a fixed cost of about 5 cents per kWh for an upfront purchase. Zero down financing agreements are also available for about 10 to 12 cents per kWh with no capital investment or maintenance costs.
