PROVO, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vivint Solar™, a leading provider of simple, affordable solar solutions, today announced plans to expand services throughout the entire state of Massachusetts after seeing rapid adoption rates in the initial test market area of Boston.
Vivint Solar first began test marketing its simple and affordable solar solutions to residents in the Boston suburbs of Woburn, Lexington, Stoneham and Burlington at the end of February 2012. Since that testing phase began, the company has installed more than 100 solar systems in those areas, and demand for Vivint Solar’s services continues to grow, leading the company to initiate immediate availability to residents throughout the state.
“The response we’ve seen so far in the Boston area has really exceeded our expectations, and we’re looking forward to being able to offer Vivint Solar throughout the whole state of Massachusetts,” said Tanguy Serra, president of Vivint Solar. “We’ve found that the residents of Massachusetts are largely green-minded, and we are happy to offer them such robust solar solutions that addresses the desires to both conserve energy and save money.”
Over the last 10 years, power prices in Massachusetts have risen an average of 12 percent annually according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. With Vivint Solar’s power purchase agreement (PPA), customers agree to purchase the power their solar panels generate at rates significantly lower than their typical power bill. This not only saves money, but the clean energy produced by the panels reduces the carbon footprint generated by the home. In exchange for agreeing to the PPA, Vivint Solar designs, installs and maintains the system for free, allowing customers to enjoy the benefits of renewable solar energy with no up-front investment.
“We had been researching a few different solar companies when a Vivint Solar sales professional came to our home,” said Craig Parker, Vivint Solar customer and Woburn resident. “He was very informative, helpful and professional and he very clearly explained how solar works. I like to think we’re environmentally conscience since we recycle and drive an eco-friendly car, and Vivint Solar was a natural fit for us.”
