New Hingham Municipal Lighting Plant Partnership Helps Hingham Residents Explore Solar Options with Ease and Transparency

Hingham, MA, March 04, 2023 – The Hingham Municipal Lighting Plant (HMLP) has launched a new partnership that will give Hingham residents access to online tools and resources for making informed decisions about clean energy technologies. The Boston-based company EnergySage provides residents with a simple, trustworthy way to learn about and comparison-shop quotes for solar panels and battery storage.

“Going solar is a big decision with a substantial price tag,” said Tom Morahan, General Manager of HMLP. “The ratepayers deserve access to reliable, quality information to help them evaluate their options and understand the costs and benefits of solar. HMLP’s partnership with EnergySage makes the process easier, more transparent, and more affordable for ratepayers while helping connect local installation companies to customers.”

EnergySage is the country’s leading marketplace for clean energy and energy-saving solutions. Developed with funding from the Department of Energy, the EnergySage Solar Marketplace is a free tool to compare multiple high-quality quotes quickly and easily from its network of vetted, local, and accredited installation companies. A team of expert, unbiased Energy Advisors is on hand to answer questions and help residents make confident decisions.

“We’re thrilled to be supporting HMLP in its efforts to encourage and increase solar adoption by members of the Hingham community,” said Tess O’Brien, VP of Partnerships at EnergySage. “Thanks to solar financing, the extension of the solar investment tax credit included in the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act, as well as local rebates of up to $6000, there’s never been a better time to explore your options.”
