We would like to invite you to watch our free webinar that originally aired on August 19th 2014 at 2:00 pm EST. You can now view it below. We came up with this topic due to a question that we will elaborate on in the webinar.
Have you seen how expensive Massachusetts electric prices are compared to the rest of the US? Electric bills are rising and the demand for energy is on the same trend. In the State of Massachusetts, electricity rates have increased over the past 30 years according to the EIA and these rates are higher than the national average. Massachusetts is also very dependent on natural gas, but this trend is slowly changing with the new changes in legislation.
For many years coal has been stable, but now the supply is diminishing as they begin to close the plants down which inflates the price. Natural gas has come down to a very competitive price and the supply is increasing, however it has been the most volatile energy source on the market. So how do we get back to a fixed price and have enough supply? The answer is solar and let’s looks at why businesses are going solar in Massachusetts.
1.) IMMEDIATE ROI 2.) NO MONEY DOWN 3.) STABILIZES ELECTRICTY RATES 4.) ENERGY COSTS ARE INCREASING 5.) MASSACHUSETTS RATES ARE ABOVE THE NATIONAL AVERAGE 6.) ENERGY BILLS ARE A TOP 5 EXPENSE ON AVERGE 7.) FEDERAL INCENTIVES ARE DUE TO EXPIRE IN 2016 8.) RENEWABLE PORTFOLIO STANDARD FORCES UTILITIES TO ADD SOLAR 9.) SOLAR RENEWABLE ENERGY CREDIT PROGAM II INCENTIVIVES PRODUCTION 10.) ELECTRIC PRICE VOLATILITY FROM COAL & NATURAL GAS 11.) GO GREEN & BE ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDS 12.) INCREASES PROPERTY VALUE
