Climate change is everyone’s business. Some people are just getting started, while others are on their way to mastering home energy efficiency. Below are some ways you can make a difference.

Solarize Brookline Reaches Tier 5!

Brookline was one of 10 Massachusetts Green Communities selected to participate in the current Solarize Mass program, which offered discounts for installing solar photovoltaic (PV) panels. The results: Brookline reached the highest tier (Tier 5), which means the lowest prices available in the program! Unofficial figures show that we have over 60 signed contracts and are at over 300 kW of capacity.
