Waterbury, Duxbury Launch Solar Initiative
Officials in Waterbury and Duxbury are launching a year-long effort in which they hope to double the number of solar-power projects in the town.
Waterbury Select Board member and state representative Rebecca Ellis says the aim is for local residents to cut energy bills and fight climate change.
Officials say 52 solar hot water and electricity generating systems already are in use in the two towns.
Local solar dealers say they're ready to step up and help the towns double that number.
