Right now Fairhaven residents are reaping the benefits of buying solar panels for their homes. As a town, Fairhaven continues to make the switch to solar energy and homeowners are seeing the savings while cutting down their carbon footprint as they switch to solar panels in Massachuetts.

Fairhaven’s adoption of solar panels is shown by the town’s investment in solar systems to power LeRoy L. Wood Elementary and East Fairhaven Elementary schools. By installing solar panels these elementary schools will have up to 80 to 90% of their total energy costs covered by renewable energy. These solar panel installations will save between $800,000 to $900,000 over the 20-year solar lease.
