Dear Northeast, how’s that solar working out for you?

By Marita Noon A couple of months ago, effective in November, National Grid, one of Massachusetts’ two dominant utilities, announced rate increases of a “whopping” 37 percent over last year.

Clouds on the solar horizon

By Marita Noon Consumers considering installing solar panels on their rooftops have far more to think through than the initial decision to “go solar.” They may search for the best price, only to discover, as customers in central Florida did, that after paying $20,000-40,000 for their systems, they are stuck with installations that may be unusable or unsafe.

Will renewables lose their mandates?

By Marita Noon “They told us the wind turbines were going to be good for the city; that our electric rates would go down. But that hasn’t happened.
