It is a great moment when your newly-installed PV roof panels start producing electricity and your bill drops. When you produce excess electricity and you see the electric meter spinning backwards, it is unbelievable.
As a leader in clean energy and sustainability, Boston created the Renew Boston Solar map so residents can track the solar energy progress Boston is making.
