New State Regulations Target Low-Income Solar Hookups

Mass DPU seal

BOSTON – The Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities has issued a new order concerning the state’s solar energy initiative.

The order aims to improve low-income residents’ ability to benefit by green-lighting a Low-Income Community Shared Solar program.

Eversource customers will be able to take advantage.

The DPU is reviewing  a request from Cape Light Compact to add LICSS to their municipal aggregation.

Board members say this will help communities that bear a disproportionate impact from climate change, while helping the commonwealth meet its clean energy goals.
