Challenge Helps Mass. Businesses Save on Energy, Boost Economic Development
The Metro South Chamber has helped launch the new Chamber Solar Challenge to help local businesses save on energy costs and encourage economic development through solar energy.
“The Chamber Solar Challenge provides a great opportunity to help our members cut costs and take advantage of the growing economic opportunities of solar energy,” said Chris Cooney, CCE, President and CEO of Metro South Chamber and Chair of the Chamber Solar Challenge, which was launched in April at the Massachusetts Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives meeting.
The Challenge enables businesses and homeowners to install solar quicker, cheaper and easier by giving consumers multiple quotes from local solar installers through the EnergySage Solar Marketplace: www.energysage.com/p/metrosouthchamber/.
“This challenge is a win-win for chambers and businesses,” said Cooney. “We aim to help our members install solar, save money, and strengthen the local economy through investment and job creation within the solar industry.”
Others Chambers in the Challenge include: Stoughton, Neponset Valley, Cape Cod Canal Region, Greater Haverhill, Quincy, Peabody Area, Nashoba Valley, North Suburban, North Central, Plymouth Area, Blackstone Valley, and New Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce. Many more are expected to join this month.
The Chamber Solar Challenge, which runs until Jan. 31, 2017, is an initiative of the Metro South Chamber of Commerce and Chambers for Innovation and Clean Energy, a nationwide network of local chambers that help member businesses prosper in the clean energy space. Learn more here.
