For a solar system to produce enough energy to justify your investment, your location should be relatively south facing and mostly unshaded from 9 am to 3 pm.

Some available options for you to have solar panels installed in Massachusetts:

1) Own

You pay outright and own the photovoltaic solar panel system.
The federal incentives and Massachusetts incentives & rebates are all yours. With all of these incredible incentives, home solar system payoffs are typically 5-8 years, roof-mounted or ground-mounted.

2) Lease

No money out of pocket.
You do not receive any of the tax incentives and rebates.
With a solar lease you agree in advance to pay a fixed monthly lease payment - think of it as a "rent" payment. This payment is calculated according to the amount of electricity generated by the system.
Your electric bill will be eliminated or drastically reduced.
The solar company owns and maintains the system.

3) Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

No money out of pocket.
Unlike a solar lease, you do not pay to "rent" the solar panel system, instead you agree to buy the power generated at an predetermined cost per Kwh (Kilowatt Hour).
Your electric bill is reduced a small amount, you do not receive any of the incentives and rebates.
The solar company owns and maintains the system.

Both Lease and PPA are very similar, and are often referred as a lease agreement.

How Solar Panels Work

Solar Power in Massachusetts

As of late 2010, in Massachusetts alone, there were over 2,000 solar power installations which made up for some 22 megawatts (MW) of electricity produced within the state. The main reason why there are now as many solar power installations is because of the Commonwealth Solar Rebate Program set up by the state government. The Commonwealth Solar Rebate Program offers rebates for photovoltaics (solar panels) which in turn makes it much more affordable for many average homeowners to install them in the roofs of their homes.

The solar power rebate program began in 2007 with the goal of reaching 27 MW installed solar by the year 2010 with the aid of a $68 million budget. Further, a mandate issued in Boston set a target of 400 MW solar energy to be generated by the year 2020.
