Climate Crisis Committee

Meeting Dec. 2 to tell why residents should 'Go Solar Now'

Nov 24, 2019

Belfast — The Belfast Climate Crisis Committee will hold its third public meeting Monday, Dec. 2, at 6 p.m. at Belfast Free Library, 106 High St.

This meeting is jointly sponsored by Climate Solutions Waldo County, a newly formed nonprofit whose goals include supporting mitigating greenhouse emissions and achieving carbon-neutral growth throughout Waldo County.

The title of this meeting is “Go Solar Now: Why 2020 is the year to install solar electric power”; it will focus on the changing technical, legal and financial developments in solar power.

Changes in Maine law and regulations are making it possible for businesses, homeowners, renters and nonprofit organizations to convert to solar electric power more affordably than ever.

Existing federal tax laws also encourage solar installations, and because some of the tax benefits under these laws will be reduced as time goes on, people may want to act sooner, rather than later, to convert to solar.
