If you have a conventional (non-slate) roof and it is reasonably new, installing a solar electric system could be a good financial and environmental option for you. More than 50,000 New Jersey homeowners have gone solar and are already saving money and the environment. Like most people, you probably have questions about solar energy. The Maplewood Solar Challenge was developed to help answer these questions and to make it simple and easy to get a solar energy system of your own. 

On March 4th at the Hilton Branch Library from 10:30- 12 noon the Maplewood Green Team is hosting a Question and Answer session to learn about signing up and reviewing options.  You will need to bring a copy of your electric bill if you want help signing up. Thank you for considering participation in this town-wide challenge. If you have questions, email [email protected].

  • This free service will help you learn about and shop for a solar energy system with absolutely no obligation to make a purchase in the end.
  • You will get quotes from up to eight pre-qualified installers and all of the options including purchasing outright, loan financed, and leasing are provided in direct comparison making it easy for you to choose the best option for your roof.
  • You can go solar and start saving on your electricity bills with no money down through various loan and leasing programs or purchase a system with surprisingly quick payback.

The Maplewood Solar Challenge is a township-sponsored program; we have partnered with Sustainable Jersey and EnergySage, an online solar marketplace that was developed with funding and support from the U.S. Department of Energy.
