Eighty customers joined employees of New England Clean Energy for a 10th anniversary celebration at the solar installation company’s Hudson headquarters on Nov. 6, 2016, New England Clean Energy President Mark Durrenberger announced.
“In October 2006, I started a renewable energy company out of my home. Ten years, one name change, 37 employees, and 750 solar electric systems later, New England Clean Energy has become a leader in the regional solar industry. We are thrilled that so many customers took time out of their weekend to celebrate this achievement with us, since they played a huge role in our success,” Durrenberger said.
At the event, banners were displayed stating the solar benefits achieved by customers in 10 years: New England Clean Energy conservatively calculated its customers’ total electricity production at 13,037,000 kilowatt-hours. That amount of clean energy prevented the release of 10,099 tons of carbon dioxide, which is equivalent to taking 1,935 cars off the road for a year, or the carbon sequestration of 8,670 acres of trees.
One-hundred-twenty people–mostly customers and company employees–mingled and enjoyed refreshments and solar-related activities. Customers viewed products including SunPower solar panels, a Mitsubishi Electric ductless mini-split heating and cooling system, and a battery storage unit. They watched demonstrations of roof evaluations and solar energy system designs, and offered video testimonials of their support for solar.
Since being founded in 2006, New England Clean Energy has installed more than 750 solar energy systems on businesses and homes in central, MetroWest and southeastern Massachusetts; southern New Hampshire; and Rhode Island. The company has more positive reviews on independent Solar Reviews than any company in the northeast.
