Solar Panels, Electric Cars and…Heat Pumps?

The Solarize Massachusetts initiative has launched in Needham, and the goal of ‘greening’ our community has never seemed more within reach. At a “Meet the Installers” event held in late October, there were three areas being explored that could help make a huge difference AND save you money in the long term. Solar panels are perhaps the most prominent solution being promoted, but do you know how it works? Electric cars have never been more popular, but are you ready for one, which one is right for you, and how much cost is involved? Finally, heat pumps have long had an image that was far from green. The common conception was that they were an expensive way to heat a home or business. Find out how far the industry has come in this program.
