Lead by example. Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino is doing exactly that by participating in Solarize Mass, a SolarCity and Massachusetts Clean Energy Center partnership to encourage Boston residents to install solar. Menino is slated to have solar panels put on his own home, according to a recent SolarCity press release.
Mayor Menino said Boston is looking to have 25 megawatts of solar power installed in Boston by 2015.
SolarCity — which has been on a hiring binge — said that, before the Solarize Mass project began, there were 101 residential solar installations in Boston; 40 new customers have since signed up for the tiered savings program.
