Solar Access is a new Massachusetts program for middle-income homeowners.
The non-profit Center for EcoTechnology (CET) is offering affordable, renewable energy for your community. Solar Access is funded by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) and the Department of Energy Resources (DOER). Working with an energy expert, you will be guided through the program, which adds a special Solar Access incentive to the existing combination of electric utility, state, and federal incentives for renewable energy. By enrolling in a UMassFive College Credit Union loan, you will own your solar panels and a heat pump and will pay less than you spend now.

Why solar panels?
Photovoltaic solar panels converts sunlight into electricity to power your house without any pollution or carbon emissions. Today the cost of solar panels plus Massachusetts incentives make it a great time to own your solar panels and pay less to the electric utility company.
Why heat pumps?
Heat pumps use electricity to very efficiently heat and cool your home. Rather than burning fossil fuels to create heat and cool, heat pumps move heat from one place to another – bringing heat into your home in the winter and removing heat in the summer. Heat pump technology advancements now allow for excellent performance even on the coldest and hottest days of the year.
Customer service is available Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.
