In the News
In October, 2017 Melrose made a commitment to become a SolSmart-designated community. SolSmart, an initiative of the U.S. Department of Energy and the Solar Powering America by Recognizing Communities (SPARC), encourages municipalities to improve solar market conditions by making it faster, easier, and more affordable for residents and businesses to install solar energy systems.
