Challenge Helps Massachusetts Businesses Save on Energy and Boost Economic Development

More than a dozen Chambers across the Commonwealth, including the Neponset Valley Chamber, are participating in the Chamber Solar Challenge to help local businesses save on energy costs and encourage economic development through solar energy.

“The Chamber Solar Challenge provides a great opportunity to help our members cut costs and take advantage of the growing economic opportunities of solar energy,” said Chris Cooney, CCE, President and CEO of Metro South Chamber and Chair of the Chamber Solar Challenge, which was launched in April at the Massachusetts Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives meeting.

The Challenge enables businesses and homeowners to install solar quicker, cheaper and easier by giving consumers multiple quotes from local solar installers through the EnergySage Solar Marketplace: http://www.energysage.com/p/neponset-valley-chamber-of-commerce/

The Neponset Valley Chamber has been discussing energy costs as they affect both businesses and residents for several years, including an event in May with Hyrdo Quebec to discuss hydropower. “Energy costs in Massachusetts are one of the highest in the nation. We must begin utilizing diverse sources of energy. Through the Solar Challenge, the NVCC aims to collaborate to help our members install solar, save money, and strengthen the local economy through investment and job creation within the solar industry,” said Neponset Valley Chamber president, Thomas O’Rourke. “Participating in the Chamber Solar Challenge supports that.”

The Chamber Solar Challenge, which runs until Jan. 31, 2017, is an initiative of the Metro South Chamber of Commerce and Chambers for Innovation and Clean Energy, a nationwide network of local chambers that help member businesses prosper in the clean energy space.
