A decade-long partnership with Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity.
Working with their many partners, Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity builds strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable homeownership in Hampshire and Franklin Counties.
Since 2008, PV Squared has donated solar systems to Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity homes. We’ve installed solar for 14 Habitat projects to date, and have worked alongside dozens of volunteers and students from Franklin County Technical School and Smith Vocational School. It’s a community-wide effort to get these houses up and running, and we are proud of the on-going utility cost savings that each solar PV system will provide to these homeowners in the decades ahead.
These efforts have provided nearly $50,000 and counting of energy savings directly to these Pioneer Valley Habitat homeowners.
