Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Thinking about installing solar panels?  Wondering how much it would cost?  Wondering if solar is worth the investment? 

The city of Cambridge, in collaboration with the Sustainable Design Lab at MIT and MoDe Studio , has just launched a very cool tool – the Cambridge Solar Map that will answer these questons and more.

On the Cambridge Solar Map page you can enter your Cambridge address and get estimates about how much it would cost to install a solar system and projections of potential production, cost savings and pollution reduction.  There’s an estimated payback time given and links to additional info about rebates and other programs.

The Cambridge Solar Tool is fun and fascinating to play with.  For my house the tool projects some significant savings as well as what to me seems a somewhat daunting price tag.  Zooming around the color coded map it’s easy to see some buildings that look like particularly promising sites for solar.  All those large flat roofs look to me like bright yellow potential solar farms.


PS – make sure you have an updated browser – no Internet Explorer laggards allowed – the Cambridge Solar Tool requires version 9 or above or some other more “modern” browser like Chrome, Safari or Firefox.
