Cuddle up in TinySol, or Wake with the Sun, a solar-powered house cum houseboat. You walk in and you are in another world – a future world powered entirely by the sun. Curl up on one of the bunks in this 128 sq. ft. house on wheels. It sleeps two. It’s hard to describe the feeling of being inside TinySol. Walk in and feel welcomed, comfortable, and safe. Enjoy a snack or a meal prepared in the solar-powered kitchen. In a home like this, you can live anywhere: the woods, the beach, your back yard, or on pontoons for solar-powered exploration of rivers or lakes. Come visit this 21st Century Walden cabin.

What if you would like to benefit from the incentives and savings of being a solar panel owner but rent, or don't live in a sunny location? You can become an owner or investor in a shared system on the roof of an industrial, commercial, or town owned building or on open land. You would reap tax credits, reduce your electricity bill, and help the environment.
The good news is that for many in Brookline, there are very attractive opportunities for a potentially outstanding return on an investment in solar panels. Community Shared Solar Garden is an opportunity for apartment residents, owners or renters of commercial properties, and owners of condominiums can choose to switch to a renewable source by solarizing theie electrical power source.
Here is an analogy: Not everyone can work a farm, but anyone can buy into a farm’s production through a Community Supported Agriculture CSA.
