B&B in Florence Massachusetts
100% Renewable Energy Goal Achieved:
100% powered and 50% heated by the sun
Starlight Llama is the region's first solar-powered, off-the-grid, bed and breakfast in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts.
The B&B is off-the-grid, in other words, not connected to any electric company. The cost of the solar array, batteries and inverter, according to the owners, was comparable to the cost of an electric company hook up , once the cost of electrical poles or burying cables was factored in.
