A recent story in the Boston Globe warned that Massachusetts utility customers could be faced with bigger electricity bills in the next 20 years. That’s because of Governor Deval Patrick’s plan to expand solar there.
The governor, who seems to be motivated by wanting his state to produce cleaner power and new jobs, aims to quadruple the amount of solar in Massachusetts. The state already came in ahead of its previous goal of 400 MW, which it wasn’t scheduled to arrive at for a few years. But officials there want to do more and are proposing a goal of 1,600 MW by 2020.
