RevoluSun’s first franchise turns up the power

RevoluSun’s first franchise turns up the power

As RevoluSun’s first franchise, the Massachusetts operation is growing fast, having just celebrated passing the 100th installation mark. The Burlington, MA office is excited to offer customers leasing options for solar PV systems this year as well. Massachusetts' PV market continues to gain momentum through a combination of strong state incentives and a recent 21 percent increase in residential electricity rates.

“The solar energy credits in our state make it financially affordable to harness renewable solar power,” relates Kip George, President of RevoluSun Massachusetts. “We did a lot of educating last year, explaining that solar really will work here year-round. Snow is translucent allowing light through and our summer days see light until 9 p.m. so we have ample amounts of sun to power homes.” George adds that he thinks now that the education has begun, they will see a big explosion this year as more Massachusetts folks believe in solar power.
