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 resident to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, numerous home owners discover that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically minimize or perhaps eliminate your electric expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a big part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy rates have increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or house owner with fluctuating money flow, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Increase your property value

Multiple studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up with photovoltaic 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 part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a terrific way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are necessary elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that pick to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer buying choices, producing goodwill and improving organisation results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.

Many property owners choose to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

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

With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can determine just how much electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Upcoming Technologies In Solar Energy Conservation.?
Adivise Some Solar Technlogies For Buildings Like A Campus Dining Or A Commercial Building.

I know of one very exciting upcoming technology: Thin Film Photovoltaics

Regular, crystalline solar panels require silicon crystals. As a result, there is a limit to how cheaply they can be made. You can only cut manufacturing costs on regular solar panels by so much. And right now, even at full production, they aren't cost effective without government subsidies. But thin film panels don't require crystals. They are still expensive, because they are new and not yet at full production. But they hold a LOT of promise for bringing the price of solar PV down to being competitive with other traditional fuels.

Who Advocates For Wind Power To Be Used?
I Neeeed To Know Who Are Some Major People Or Orginazations Or Whatever That Encourage And Advocate Wind Energy Usage/ Wind Power???

It has its' place but is noisy and not overly efficient. I advocate less greed in the use of power. Here in england they are forcing us to be greener yet the big city companies leave thousands of watts of lighting burning day and night. We will never meet the requirements of the whole world at the levels we use power now so must reduce what we all use then provide as much of our power from the most reliable and least toxic sources.
Gas turbines are the best we have at the moment for efficiency vs pollution so we need to be generating gas from waste and using that as primary source where possible then supplementing with wind, wave, solar geothermal and any other technology we can find but not nuclear until the science can deal with the waste.

I will repeat my call for reduction of energy use as the only long term solution.

Alternative Fuel?
Why Dont We Use Hydrogen. I Know That It Costs Energy To Get They Hydrogen, But Then Shouldnt We Us Solar Energy To Get The Hydrogen?

Even if we used solar energy for electrolysis to break the atomic bonds in water molecules to get hydrogen, it would still be a waste.

It takes a ton of energy to break atomic bonds. More energy than you can get out by burning the hydrogen for fuel, so overall you have a net loss of energy. Even if that weren't a problem, there's no hydrogen infrastructure (transport and storage for hydrogen refueling). Building this infrastructure would cost billions of dollars.

Instead you could power a car directly with the solar energy by using it to charge up a battery and run an electric motor. This is a far more efficient process, and the infrastructure (power grid) is already in place. Electric cars are the way of the future.
