MassLive: Massachusetts expands solar access under new law

March 29th, 2021

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker signed a landmark climate bill into law on March 26, 2021 after months of back-and-forth debates with legislative leaders. BlueHub Capital has been working to increase access to solar energy for low-income communities through legislation since 2016. Thanks to BlueHub's advocacy efforts, the new law will remove barriers in current solar polices that have limited access to affordable, clean, solar energy for low-income households in Massachusetts.
