Franklin Solar Challenge Reaches Tier 4 Pricing

The group-buying program that can save Residents thousands on a new Solar PV system.

Franklin, MA – Dec. 15, 2014 – The Franklin Solar Challenge, a Town sponsored program that allows residents to take advantage of group-buying power for solar PV panels which help offset the rising cost of electric bills, has reached Tier 4 pricing in record time. The Solar Challenge was launched in early September by local solar installer, SolarFlair Energy in Ashland, and is having early success in the amount of residents who have signed up in the program. “This is the fastest SolarFlair has reached the Tier 4 pricing level, out of all 9 communities that have participated in this type of program with us.” Said Dan Barnett, SolarFlair’s Residential Sales Manager.
The pricing is based on five tiers, the base price, which starts at Tier 1, goes down per watt as more people sign up. A customer will save $2,400 on an average system of 20 panels. The expected payback would be 3-5 years. SolarFlair has also offered a Tier 6 and 7, which means Franklin has reached 400 or 600 kilowatts of contracted solar power, if Tier 7 is reached then SolarFlair will donate two solar PV systems to local non-profit organizations. Last year, as part of the Chelmsford-Carlisle solar program, SolarFlair Energy donated a solar PV system to The Paul Center, a local non-profit organization that serves children and young adults with disabilities.
The Franklin Solar Challenge offers Franklin residents an opportunity to reduce its impact on the environment, save money and increase its energy independence.
