 Friends of the Homeless building in Springfield The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) will continue its programme “Low-income Solar Thermal” throughout 2012. This year’s budget is USD 2 million. The programme’s subsidies cover the entire costs for a solar thermal system, including hardware and labour. Christie Howe from MassCEC estimates that the budget will allow for the installation of 15 to 20 solar systems in multi-family houses and other social institutions during 2012.
