LOWELL, MA--(Marketwire - June 19, 2008) - Borrego Solar Systems, Inc., a leading designer and installer of grid-connected solar electric power systems, today announced the opening of an office in Lowell, Mass. to facilitate the company's rapid growth as a result of increasing demand for solar energy solutions by businesses and homeowners throughout New England.

Eldridge (37th Middlesex District), Lowell Mayor William F. Martin, Jr., Borrego Solar executives and other local business and political leaders will discuss the creation of green-collar jobs and other significant economic benefits as Massachusetts continues to emerge as a clean technology hub.

"As the cost of traditional energy continues to soar, more and more homeowners and businesses across New England are turning to solar power to reduce their energy bills and promote environmental sustainability.

"We currently have 34 employees in our New England office, and anticipate the hiring of at least 30 more in the coming months as solar energy continues to gain adoption throughout the region.
