Announcing our first-ever Matching Grant Challenge!

As part of the planning for the 2018 festival, a generous long-time supporter of
SolarFest has pledged to match all donations up to $6,000.

Our mission of renewable energy education is complex, and more important than ever before. Since 1995 we’ve had great success helping to show that “SOLAR WORKS.” Now, home heating and transportation have replaced electricity as the leading contributor to climate change, so we’re changing too.

An exclusive opportunity for your support to go twice as far

We’re busy planning our 2018 festival, to include new speakers, new technologies, and new initiatives to support people looking to reduce carbon and save money. This year we will be announcing a new venue with our continued commitment to the best entertainment and the latest artists. Plus, we continue to offer dynamic events throughout the year to continue educating about renewable energy, sustainability, and climate change.

Now more than ever — we need your help to continue our mission

Your financial support will keep SolarFest, the original New England energy festival, strong and sustainable. To make your tax-deductible donation today, simply go to the DONATE page and your gift of $20, $50, $100, or more will be DOUBLED – but please act now while we have this matching grant!


We need your help to make this happen! Please give some time, skills, and money as we continue working toward a more livable world:
