California solar services provider OneRoof Energy has begun offering residential solar leases to homeowners in Massachusetts.
The move is part of the San Diego-based company's planned expansion into new North American markets. OneRoof Energy said it would offer Massachusetts homeowners served by utility companies NSTAR and National Grid the opportunity of going solar with little to nothing down.
Residential solar energy is growing quickly across the northeastern United States. According to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), in Massachusetts alone, residential solar installations nearly doubled between 2012 and 2013, with an increase from 15.2 MW installed in 2012 to 26.7 MW in 2013. The state ranked number six in solar electricity capacity installed last year.
