Solar Energy & Installations in Greater Boston, MA

Increase your savings while decreasing your carbon footprint with solar installation for your Boston home or business.

Boston has a long, storied history of leading the country in the right direction, especially when it comes to renewable energy. According to Environment America’s 2022 “Shining Cities” report, Boston is a “Solar Star”—one of only 34 cities nationwide with more than 50W of solar PV per capita, and it’s 21st in the country in terms of total installed solar PV.

You can help continue this legacy by switching to solar with My Generation Energy. Not only does going solar save you thousands of dollars each year, but it also helps offset the carbon emissions as you commute from Newton or Needham every day.
