Massachusetts Interfaith Power & Light (MIPL) announces that under a limited-time offer by SunBug Solar, churches can now lease a solar electric system with no down payment, making monthly payments equal to or less than their current electric bill. After 10 years, the church may buy the panels for 20% of their original cost or finance them for another five years. The offer is available until Sept. 15, 2012 only.
MIPL asserts that solar electric systems for houses of worship make good economic sense, and mean less global warming pollution from the burning of fossil fuels.
For details about this offer, contact Lisa Raffin of SunBug at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-500-3932.
Sunbug provided solar panels for the City of Boston during the Renew Boston project. They've also installed a system on the home of Tom Nutt-Powell, past president of MIP&L who can testify to the quality of their work. Sunbug uses SunPower panels, the longest producing and most reliable panels in the world. This deal stands on its own merits, but SunBug is making it even sweeter by making a donation of between $400 & $600 to each congregation, and the same amount to MIP&L.
