Solar Panels

Give Green to Get Green!
Donate, & Help BLS Youth CAN Win Solar Panels for Boston Latin School!
The Boston Latin School Youth Climate Action Network is participating in the Massachusetts Energy Consumer’s Alliance Solar Challenge!  Here’s how it works:  When 150 Boston residents join, Boston earns a free solar panel for a school!   We’d like that school to be the Boston Latin School!  In order to make that happen, we need 150 BLS parents, faculty, and friends to become members of the Mass Energy Consumer’s Alliance.  In order for BLS to get credit for your donation, when you contribute, please specify that it is on behalf of BLS Youth CAN and the Boston Latin School!  All donations must be received by April, 30th 2008 to qualify.  

Join BLS Youth CAN and the New England Wind Fund in helping to make Boston a green and healthy community, while at the same time earning solar panels for the Boston Latin School!  Drop us an email to let us know you’ve donated!  Emails should be directed to BLS Youth CAN’s faculty advisor, Cate Arnold @  Please tell us whether we may include your name on the Solar Challenge page of the Youth CAN website ( and how you’d like your name to appear!  Thanks for your support!
Community Solar Challenge “Joining this program is a win - win! We earned free solar panels for our town, and provided support for wind power at the same time- it’s a great chance to do the right thing!”  -Kate Crosby, Acton MA
About Mass Energy:
Mass Energy Consumers Alliance is a non-profit with 25 years experience making energy affordable and sustainable. Local volunteers and groups in your community are working in partnership with Mass Energy to promote clean energy choices.
Feel Good about Your Electricity:
Mass Energy’s New England Wind Fund program is an easy way to offset your electricity use with clean wind power. Moving from polluting fossil fuels to zero emission local wind energy is an important solution in fighting climate change. Wind power is more expensive right now and needs your support. When you make tax deductible contributions to New England Wind Fund, you support wind turbines that put more clean energy into the electrical grid.
Community Solar Challenge:
The Clean Energy Choice® program of the Mass Technology Collaborative rewards communities who support clean energy. A community earns a 2 kilowatt solar system when 150 households join New England Wind Fund by making qualifying contributions between May 1, 2007 and April 30, 2008. 300 qualifying members earn 2 systems! A $100 annual contribution or a $5 monthly contribution qualifies for the challenge. More information at Last year 6 communities won, we can too!
