Greenfield, MA – PV Squared employees and students from Franklin County Technical School worked together to install a solar system on a Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity home in Greenfield last week. This hands-on experience is essential for Franklin County Technical School students enrolled in the electrician program. With installers and licensed electricians from PV Squared acting as mentors, this project was both a learning experience for the students and an opportunity to create high-quality housing for a low income family.

PV Squared has been partnering with Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity since 2010 to help make solar energy more accessible to lower income households in the community. To date, they have worked with Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity on eight projects in Franklin and Hampshire County, working specifically in the towns of Easthampton, Turners Falls, Amherst, Northampton, and Greenfield. 

All of these solar PV projects have been completed through grant funding or through the donation of products and services by PV Squared at no cost to the homeowner. Each system was designed with net-zero energy potential which means that, depending on the energy use of the household, each homeowner could be meeting all of their energy needs with the solar array. It’s truly the gift that keeps on giving for families that rely on the long term financial support provided by these solar systems.

PV Squared provides renewable energy solutions to a wide range of clients, including business owners, commercial property owners, academic institutions, and homeowners in western Massachusetts and surrounding regions.
