The Newton Solar Challenge is a City-wide residential solar campaign sponsored by Green Decade Newton, the City of Newton Sustainability Office and Newton-based BarnRaise Energy. The Newton Solar Challenge provides: preferred pricing for Newton residents, American-made solar equipment, high-quality regional solar installers and “solar loans” from local banks to support residential ownership.

In the Solar Workshops, the team will give a brief presentation and then will have interactive “breakouts” in small groups covering:
- How would solar work at my house?
- How would it “look” on my house?
- Show me the numbers !
- How does solar reduce increasing utility bills (after recent 37% utility increases) ?
- How do the numbers work to provide a payback on a solar investment.
- Solar Loans: How will solar loans enable residential ownership and help make the numbers even better?
