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 air conditioning system, washing clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, lots of property owners find that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower and even eliminate your electric expenses

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a large portion of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.

#2 Earn a great return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity costs cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, property electricity rates have gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or homeowner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your expenses.

#4 Boost your home or business value

Several research studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively 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, need for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price changes in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general 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 tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A typical residential solar panel system will get rid of three to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are essential parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer buying choices, creating goodwill and improving company outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy business are infamous for their varying and unreliable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and easy math, we can determine how much electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

We can also use solar energy to make electricity. The process is called photovoltaics. If you have a solar-powered watch or calculator, you’re using photovoltaics!
In 1954, scientists at Bell Telephone discovered that silicon (an element found in sand) created an electric charge when it was exposed to lots of sunlight. Just a few years later, silicon chips were used to help power space satellites.
Today, more than 10,000 American families get all of their electricity from solar power. And silicon from just one ton of sand, used in photovoltaic cells, could produce as much electricity as burning 500,000 tons of coal.
You might be wondering why we don’t use solar electricity all the time. Solar power systems make a different kind of electricity than big power plants do, so different wiring is needed – and that can be expensive.

There are a few big solar power plants in the United States, mostly in California. It’s difficult and expensive to make a lot of electricity using photovoltaics – the panels cost a lot, and a lot of open land is needed.

How Is Solar Energy Made Into Electricity?

by using of solar cells. you should know that solar energy contains photon charges in itself. these photon charges when captured by the solar cells, treated as electorns in the surface of semiconductor then the semiconductor circuit arrangement about which you can got from web, is create deplation layer because of movement of electrons and holes in semiconductor material. this movement of electrons and holes will results in generating voltage in the whole circuit. and the electricity produce which is using currently as one of the big source of electricity.

What % Of Houses In The United States Use Passive Solar Design For Heating Or To Supplement Heating?
A Link To A Graph Showing The Growth Over The Last 50 Years Would Be Very Helpful. It'S For A Paper For My Environmental Biology Class.

Every house that has a south facing window uses some passive solar design to supplement heating. It is one of the reasons why we put windows in homes. There are other elements of passive design that are also found in quite conventional homes. The difference between a passive solar home and anyone of these is that there is some conscious attempt to supply some percentage of heating or cooling energy requirements using passive solar energy design.

The problem in getting some kind of number is first to clearly state what you are using as a definition of a passive solar home. 100% of heating/cooling? Is 50% ok? Will you accept a very conscious 10% retrofit? Can we count a home designed before the term "passive solar design" existed even if it fits the criteria? What about the cliff dwellings built 700 years ago in SW to capture the winter sun and avoid the summer sun?

It is difficult also because I can't think of any reason to tabulate such results. A building permit does not ask if the home is of a passive design or not. Tax data will also not reflect the particular design. The data is simply not collected in any organized way either locally or nationally. If you can think of some element that will always be included in a passive solar home you might be able to extrapolate from that. But unfortunately passive solar designs can vary so much it is difficult to come up with such a material that could be measured. I might suggest that instead of supplying data you discuss possible sources and why it is so difficult to obtain. Say what you have and not what you would like to have or think you should have.

Where Is Solar Energy Used The Most?
I Need An Answer For A Project By Tomorrow

On earth it is used most by warming our atmosphere and by plants that use it to grow. We humans rely on it for light, warmth, and to provide food. It is also important for other of earth's functions like weather. Humans make vitamin D because of light from the sun. The solar energy is part of the "electromagnetic spectrum"
