What Our Customers are Saying



"We found all of the employees with whom we in contact from the sales representative to the installers to be knowledgeable and professional. All our questions were answered satisfactorily which is why we decided panels installed. We were also impressed with the company’s A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau.” – Pat S. – Boston


"Our first two bills were approximately $300.00 less than before and our third bill, just received was down about $250.00 from what we were paying! We think it is fantastic!" - William R. - Waltham MA


"They did a wonderful job on my system and I would recommend them to my family and friends!" - Georg S. - Chicopee MA

I cannot express my gratitude for going forward with solar panels. From the initial meeting to discuss the possibility to the techs who eventually installed them. But most of all, it is the savings we have experienced. That first month was unbelievable. Solar plus our other electric source combined was less than our usual monthly expense. During the summer when our electric usage is higher because of the air conditioning, our monthly expense was still less than what we have paid with past summer usage. And if that’s not enough…our present electricity is primarily supplied by the solar panels. We have been building up a reserve with our other electricity source and will be able to draw from that all winter when our panels wont’t generate as much electricity. It’s a win-win situation that we’re just thrilled over. Having a fixed rate locked in is another great feature for savings.” – Virgil T. – Westport MA

About Solar Energy

Solar power is energy from the sun that is transformed into thermal or electrical energy.

Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable resource source available, and the United States has some of the richest solar resources worldwide. Modern innovation can harness this energy for a variety of usages, consisting of producing electricity, supplying light or a comfortable interior environment, and heating water for domestic, commercial, or industrial usage.

Solar Benefits

Solar power makes it possible for homeowner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, cleaning clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, lots of residents find that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly lower or even remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have increased by an average of 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a service or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your home or business value

Multiple research studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that pick to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and improving service outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.

Lots of homeowners pick to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Emerging Technologies Will Make The Solar Energy Safer,More Usable, More Efficient, Cleaner, Etc?

Probably the biggest difference coming down the road in solar is battery storage. Tesla promises cheap battery storage in the next several years. This could be a real game changer. I even know some who were considering a generator installation and are looking into a battery backup for the house instead. At that point even with a modest amount of solar collectors makes some sense as a method to gather energy over time for emergency use.

The long sought goal of cheaper solar panels are becoming a reality. What is needed in the market now is innnovation on the permitting and installation. For this a modular design that can be approved at the factory rather than at the home would be one method

I Need To Make A Solar Cooker For Science Class. Any Suggestions?
We Need To Boil Water Using No Electricity, Just Solar Energy. Please Help Me Out!

Take a look at these things called "sun ovens", when I was in Haiti, we got them to about 250-300 degrees fairly regularly, depending on where you live it would be possible to boil water with something of a similar design.

I Have An Idea And I Want To Know If It Can Work. Thx Engineers.?
An Airport That Runs Only On Solar Power. Every Roof Has Solar Panels To Power It During The Day And It Has A Fleet Of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Uav) That Are Solar Powered And Have Energy Collectors. During The Day They Fly Around In Circles And Collect Energy All Day Long And Then At Night They Set Down And Connect To A Grid To Power The Airport. A Completely Green Airport. So Besides Costs Are There Any Reasons Why This Wouldn'T Work And Of Course They Would Use Normal Electricity As A Backup Or Even Dual Mode So That Part Of An Airport Uses Electricity(Computers/ Half The Lights) And The Other Parts Like (Escalators And The Other Lights )Would Use Solar Power.

Well, there are 3 things you need here: How much energy an average airport uses, how much surface area it has, and how much energy you get from sunlight per surface area. Then assuming you have enough space on the airport to provide for its energy needs, you can look up the average price for solar cells and how much it would cost to cover it. Then you can see how many years you expect those cells to last (20 years), and calculate the costs of that vs. buying electricity from the grid for 20 years.

The bottom line:
1) It's a nice sentiment, but yes, the main problem is that it would still be too expensive.
2) I can tell you right now that the UAV's will spend all their energy flying around and will not contribute to the charge of the airport. Remember the amount of energy you get from solar is dependent on the amount of surface area of direct sunlight you are covering. Assuming you don't have football court sized UAVs, they will be useless for solar harvesting.

If You Were The Energy Czar Of Your State, Where Would You Invest Your Money?
Why? And Can You Explain Fossil Fuel Vs. Renewable Fuels

Fossil fuels are not replenished - once oil, natural gas and coal are taken from the earth and burned, they are gone forever. Renewable energy sources are geothermal, biomass, wind and solar. They never run out.

Of the renewable energy sources, geothermal is by far the most practical at this point in time. Solar and wind are sexy, but they are still in development. Geothermal is here and viable - and it works. So that is where I would put my money. To learn more go to the site below.

Solar-To-Hydrogen Energy The Future?
I Read This Interesting Article Of Using The Suns Heat To Break Water Into Hydrogen And Oxygen Molecules Instead Of Fossil Fuels And I Think Its A Great Idea. What Do U Guys Think? Http://Www.Enn.Com/Top_Stories/Article/21939

Looks like an interesting idea.

I've done my best to not be engulfed on oil consumption. I take public transportation to work everyday. I recycle and the car I own is a Prius.

I"m all for green ideas :D
