Newton, MA was named one of the best places to live in 2017: ninety-six percent of all kids graduate from high school; the sun shines for most of the year; the median income is high and the commute time for work is a decent 24 minutes.1 Who doesn’t like a short commute?
The city swore in its first female mayor, Ruthanne Fuller, on January 1, 2018. And yes, the Fig Newton was named after the city, too. Who wouldn’t want to live in a cookie?2
Rather than having a single city center, Newton resembles a patchwork of thirteen villages. It’s one of the largest cities in the state.3 What does Sunrun™ like about Newton? It has big plans for solar.
Newton has had big plans in place to go solar since 2010. The city wanted to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels and save its communities money using alternative energies. And they are well on their way to success eight years later.4
We plan on working toward solar success, too, in Newton, MA. Sunrun currently provides access to solar energy savings for thousands of families across America - one rooftop at a time. We want to be in Newton.
Right now there are a lot of dirty generators being used in Massachusetts due to so many power outages. Heavy storms account for hundreds of thousands without power every year. Generators give off toxic fumes, are noisy and powered by fossil fuels - fuels that are a principal cause of global warming.
Sunrun’s solar battery service, Brightbox™, can keep Newton homes humming during a blackout with no harmful effects. Working in conjunction with your rooftop solar panels, our lithium-ion battery powers up during an outage (for up to ten hours!) allowing you to weather through the storm with confidence that the lights will stay on and your food will stay cold.
And when the sun comes back out - your panels start recharging your battery again.
Make the switch to BrightSave Monthly™. Why pay for the power when you can pay for the panels with ZERO down? We do everything: install your panels, handle maintenance, guarantee performance and monitor your system for twenty years.
