State Representative Ann-Margaret Ferrante Announces Availability of JOE-4-SUN Solar Credits

 

State Rep. Ann-Margaret Ferrante (D-Gloucester) today announced the availability of $300 in annual household electricity savings through JOE-4-SUN, the state’s largest Low-Income Community Shared Solar program.

The initiative from Boston-based Citizens Energy Corporation, launched earlier this month, offers discount solar credits to about 2,000 low-income Massachusetts families each year.

“This is a terrific new program from my good friend, former Congressman Joe Kennedy, who has been helping low-income families in Massachusetts, the U.S., and around the world meet their energy needs with innovative programs for over 40 years,” said the six-term representative. “I encourage Gloucester families to look into this program before the subscriptions fill up.”

As a participant in the state’s SMART (Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target) initiative, Citizens Energy is building five solar arrays on capped landfills around the state – in Bridgewater, Ayer, Springfield, Spencer and Ashland.

The 16 megawatts of electricity generated from the five projects will produce bill credits to be sold at a 50% discount to subscribers. As the largest Low-Income Community Shared Solar initiative in Massachusetts, JOE-4-SUN will offer guaranteed savings of about $10 million to 35,000 low-income Bay State families over the course of its 20-year lifespan.

Ferrante, a strong supporter of clean energy, played a key role in marshalling support for the legislation creating the state’s Low-Income Community Shared Solar programs.

“Rep. Ferrante has been a great advocate for renewable energy and finding ways to bring low-income families into the green revolution,” said Citizens Energy Chairman Joseph P. Kennedy II. “I welcome her support of JOE-4-SUN and our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint, cut greenhouse gas emissions, and extend the benefits of renewable energy to low-income households while cutting their electricity costs.”

In order to be eligible for JOE-4-SUN, renters or homeowners must be R-2 discount customers in the National Grid or Eversource service territories. Subscribers will continue to receive their R-2 discount on top of the savings from JOE-4-SUN. Citizens Energy will enroll households in the JOE-4-SUN program for at least 12 months.

Households interested in subscribing to JOE-4-SUN must apply on-line by visiting the Citizens Energy website at http://www.citizensenergy.com/joe4sun. If questions arise not answered on the website, they can call the toll-free number 855-JOE-4-SUN (855-563-4786) or send an email to JOE4SUN@citizensenergy.com for further information.

New Product Line

Cape Ann Wellness

I am very excited to introduce our new line of full-spectrum CBD products from the Luce Farm Wellness.

Their hemp is grown outdoors on their farm’s hillside, fed naturally by the sun and freshwater streams. They exclusively use organic practices from germination to extraction. And all of the plants start from seed and grow in soil amended with manures from their flocks of poultry and herds of goats.

To extract the cannabinoids from the plants, they utilize the Supercritical CO2 extraction method; a natural, pure and environmentally friendly process that retains the essential vitamins, minerals, Omega fatty acids and terpenes that naturally occur in hemp.

Their dedication to sustainable agriculture and their passion for holistic health are combined and the result is Luce Farm Wellness, an organic production farm creating full-spectrum hemp products of the highest quality.

“A new online survey reveals some unpleasant truths about American’s underwear habits: According to a poll conducted by underwear brand Tommy John, nearly half of Americans admit they’ve worn the same drawers for two or more days in a row.

The survey, which polled 2,000 men and women, revealed that 45 percent of respondents have ignored their mother’s warning about always having on a fresh pair. What’s more, a full 13 percent cop to wearing the same panties for a week or more.”

Our Poll On The Legitimacy of Their Underwear Changing Poll:

So we reported this story that’s gone viral about an underwear company that conducted a poll which concluded that nearly half of Americans don’t change their underwear daily.

I’m calling bullshit.

I’m guessing that the results were fabricated because the marketing folks at said underwear company knew the story would go viral and give the radio jockeys, newscasters and bloggers something to talk about (and look at us taking the bait) and it would gain exposure for the underwear company.

What do you think? vote in our poll about the legitimacy of the poll-

THIS. IS. BANANAS.
