Newburyport Daily News 

Residents and businesses in Newburyport now qualify for lower solar energy rates than rates for traditional sources of energy under the Solarize Massachusetts Program (Solarize Mass).

As a result of Solarize Mass, the average Newburyport participant who enters into a contract to buy solar electricity will now pay an average of 12 cents per kilowatt hour, according to a release from Massachusetts Clean Energy Center. This rate is lower than the average statewide price of 15 cents per kilowatt hour for traditional energy sources, which are a mix of coal-fired, nuclear or natural gas generation. 

Residents and businesses have until Sept. 30 to participate in the bulk purchasing program, which would secure further price reductions as more participants sign up.
