Quincy Nonprofit Wins Free Solar PV System

Quincy, Mass., September 16, 2016, — A year after its official end, Solarize Quincy, a city and state program offering discounted solar electricity (PV) systems, continues to transform the city’s landscape.

Under the agreement between Solarize Quincy and its selected installer, that figure more than met the threshold for a 5 KW solar PV system to be donated to a Quincy nonprofit by the installer, SolarFlair of Ashland.
