Wellesley’s 1st Solar Installation Demonstration

Come See For Yourself & Ask All of Your Questions

Saturday June 14th from 2-5 at 2 Woodfield Rd.


You are invited to Wellesley’s first — of many — neighborhood installation demonstrations on Saturday, June 14, from 2 – 5 pm at 2 Woodfield Road – the corner of Weston Road.

Stop in for a few minutes, look around, ask lots of questions, stay and celebrate.

We will be celebrating and available to answer these questions and more:
o   How does Wellesley’s Solar Program Work?
o   Is my home “Solar Suitable”?
o   What are the economics?
o   How do installed solar panels look?
o   How do solar installations affect home value?

Installation demonstrations are a great way to experience a visual perspective of what ‘going solar’ really means, and provides a better understanding of the ease of the process. Astrum Solar’s qualified consultants and Wellesley’s MORE Power to Choose Solar Ambassadors will be on site to questions and to schedule site visits if participants are interested in seeing if they are good candidates for solar.

Visit www.WellesleyPowerToChoose.com for more information, or if you are unable to attend. Feel free to email Wellesley’s Sustainable Energy Committee at sec@wellesleyma.gov with any questions.
