SolaBlock holds the promise of a solar field turned vertical as part of a building façade. The 8-inch square and 8-inch-by-16-inch blocks called solar masonry units are designed in Easthampton. The block portion is made by Chicopee Mason Supplies in Chicopee. The company has other suppliers from Western Massachusetts and Pittsfield and the final assembly facility will open in Pittsfield by the end of the year.
