Casa Esperanza develops affordable housing, contracts Zapotec to complete solar project, Roxbury, MA
Nuestro Hogar is an affordable housing building in Roxbury, MA, which was developed by Casa Esperanza in its initiative to help members of the Latino community overcome issues of substance abuse. The program provides in-house bilingual services for job training, counseling and rehabilitation. This community-oriented housing project received funding from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center for a 7.5 kW solar energy system, which provides nearly 10 MWh of electricity to Nuestro Hogar each year. In 2011, Zapotec Energy provided design and construction services for the solar project at Nuestro Hogar.
