Just so you guys know, the energy profs at MIT teach the CA law mandating rooftop solar as, “among the stupidest ways to make people spend money fighting climate change.” Source: was MIT grad student when they passed the law. Just put a price on friggin carbon.


Sounds good until you realize every home in MA is already $350k+


As an Architect, this is not the way. I’ve even got LEED AP certification and I wouldn’t recommend this for ~90% of residential cases.


How to make it even harder for the middle class to own a home…


See California makes sense, there is oodles and oodles of sunlight, I don’t know as much about Mass weather, but ate there enough days of sunlight to warrant this and make it worth it ?
