Solar Universe expands franchise across Boston, Denver and Northern California

By Editor


Greentech Lead America: Solar Universe, a solar franchising provider, announced the opening of three new franchises in Boston, Massachusetts; Chico, California; and Denver, Colorado.

This national expansion, specifically within key markets, adds to the existing Solar Universe network of 37 franchises in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, bringing the total to 40 locally-owned and operated franchises nationwide and overseas.

Solar Universe’s new operation in Boston will service Massachusetts residents and will foster the governor’s new initiative by enabling consumers to have another option for solar energy.

The new locations in Boston, Denver and Chico will service the growing demand among consumers embracing solar and reaping its cost savings, the company said. Each office expects to create high quality green jobs in the communities served and will begin solar installations immediately.

The Boston opening comes on the heels of Governor Deval Patrick’s recent goal to install 1,600 megawatts of solar energy in Massachusetts by the year 2020. This benchmark was revised after the state exceeded its initial solar installation goal of 250 megawatts of power by 2017, four years earlier than anticipated.

“Boston exceeded the call for solar energy initially set by our governor,” said Bill Simeone, operator of the Boston franchise. “We are eager to help homeowners and businesses in Massachusetts go green, realize cost savings and surpass the new goal of powering 240,000 homes per year with solar energy.”

Similar to Massachusetts, Colorado has paved the way in green initiatives with its current “Million Solar Roofs” campaign, slated to generate 3,000 megawatts of solar power in the state. The goal is more likely to be achieved with the presence of another solar player in the state. With 300 days of sunshine per year, Denver is a prime location for consumers to adapt energy alternatives like solar and realize the cost benefits.

Solar Universe recently announced its first overseas operation in Puerto Rico.  This franchise opening coincides directly with increased interest in renewable energy sources throughout Puerto Rico, the company said.
