Rooftop Solar

Below are two tables of solar companies operating within Massachusetts that will install solar panels on a home. The first is a list of companies which will allow you to lease panels to put on your roof. There is generally no upfront cost but your roof needs to meet certain requirements (age, shading, structural, orientation, and aesthetics)

In both cases you will probably save more money by leasing or purchasing solar panels for your roof than doing community solar. But you have to sell the panels with your home when you move, and your roof needs to meet the requirements.

Generally speaking 80% of houses in Sharon do no meet the roof requirement.

Many of these companies have already installed solar panels at a house in Sharon. If you are looking for a reference, or a local review of these companies, please contact Paul Lauenstein at 781-784-2986 or lauenstein@comcast.net
