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 a/c, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, many residents find that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically reduce or perhaps remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can make up a big portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity expense cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, property electricity costs have actually increased by an average of three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home worth

Several research studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost variations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is an excellent method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and improving service results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy companies are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Solar Panel And Battery Time Charge Question?
Hello Guys. I Put Up A Simple Setup For Just Emergencies And Low Loads. My Specs On The Solar Panel Are: Max Power = 85W Tolerance +3% Max Power Voltage 17.4 Max Power Current 4.91 Open Circuit Voltage 21.8 Short Circuit Current 5.29 Max System Voltage 1000 Im Using A Kirklan Deep Cycle Marine Battery 115 Amp Hour And A Cheap Sunforce 7Amp Charge Controller 7A Max/14.2V/13V My Question Is...Me Being A Non Connoisseur , How Long Will My Solar Panel Take To Charge My Battery? I Know That I Wont Be Sucking It To 50% And My Only Load There Would Be A Stand Alone Fan 50 Watts That I Intent To Load Whenever The Power Goes Off For About 6 Hours. I Live In Puerto Rico , My Solar Panel Is Oriented South, Its A Movable Unit On A Dolly, Like The Ones In Diy On Youtube. And We Have Full Sun All Year Long. I Thank You And Appreciate Any Help On This Matter, Cause I Know Nothing About It, I Just Know Is Better Than Buying A Noisy Generator.

Lead acid batteries are 50% efficient at charging and 92% efficient on discharging. However you don't want to deep discharge a lead acid battery and you don't want to overcharge a lead acid battery. There are three stages to charging a lead acid battery, a bulk charge, a topping charge and a float charge. The bulk charge is current limited ( the 7 A max ), the topping charge which is your 14.2 V and the float charge which is your 13 V. However a conservatively designed system would only use half the capacity of your battery in a cycle and would assume charging to 80% of charge. That would be charging the battery from 862.5 AH to 920 AH, a difference of 57.5 AH. At 12 V, that's 690 WH, however the batteries are only 50% efficient at charging so you'll need 1,380 WH to charge that 690 WH. You said you had six hours of usable Sunshine and your panel is rated at 85 W, well 85 W * 6 = 510 WH so you only have enough to charge 15% of your battery in a day.

How Do Solar Powered Calculators Work?
I Am Doing A Research Project, And I Need Help. How Do Solar Powered Calculators Work? How Its Used, Who Invented It, What Year. And Such. Please? Thanks.

all I can help with is how it works. They have solar panels on them that transfer sunlight into energy and then that energy powers the calculator just like batteries would. If I had more time, I'd be happy to look up the info for you. Try e-mailing me later.

Anybody Install Solar Panels Themselves?
Got A Quote For About $11K Today For Solar Panels To Save Me About $100 A Month On My Electric Bill. I Was Just Wondering If Anyone Had Successfully Bought And Installed Their Own And How It Worked For You?

i have always been interested in it but the storage (batteries) and power grid tie in (to get paid for excess) technicalities made me shy away.

since your getting it installed im sure labor is a huge part of that -ebay has tons of the equipment.

I think wind may be a good home renewable source depending on where you live (cheaper than solar if you got the wind and space)

I would doubly check any goverment offerings - I know they used to and maybe still do offer sizable credits if you are within the bureacratic standards so make sure the installers work with you on that.

good luck -its new - and going to be a hassle to get right but the world needs more like you. willing to pay more now for a better tommorow (and not just $ wise)

you should come out ahead as interest rates and market provides little value on that cash and saving any equipment falure you sound good.

does the price include the batteries for all your produce kwh's? panels and labor aside batteries are the next big one
