“We have grown and changed a lot since being founded in 2006. Our new name, new website and – in a matter or weeks – new office, all reflect that,” Durrenberger said.
The company originally sold and installed wind turbines, but has focused on solar energy systems since 2007. The company stopped offering wind power in 2010 due to limited demand in Central Massachusetts.. The name New England Clean Energy reflects the focus on renewable, non-polluting energy sources, including solar, and is broad enough to accommodate other technologies that might be offered in the future.
“Serving as the Solarize Harvard installer was a real boost to our sales, and we fully intend to stay on a steady path of growth,” said Durrenberger. The company doubled its staff over the past year, from seven to 14 people, all local residents, and expects to move into a larger office in Hudson very soon.
The phone number remains the same, 978-56-SOLAR.
“Everything else about us, including our commitment to the planet and to great customer service, remains the same,” Durrenberger said.
The new website (http://www.NewEnglandCleanEnergy.com) includes a Solar Education Center, case studies of customers, and photos of solar installations and comments from almost all of the company’s 180 solar electric and solar hot water customers. The company has also launched a new Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/
New England Clean Energy designs, engineers and installs solar electric and solar hot water systems for homes and businesses. It also sells and installs solar electric fans and solar parking lot lighting. Best known for being the installer for the Solarize Harvard project, New England Clean Energy has put more solar on Massachusetts homes than any other local company.
