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 use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, lots of residents discover that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly lower or perhaps eliminate your electric costs

Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a large part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power expense savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past ten years, property electrical energy costs have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a company or homeowner with fluctuating money flow, going solar also assists you better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your house worth

Numerous research studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need 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 key element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 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. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a fantastic way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

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

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy business are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy math, we can compute how much electrical power will be generated, and most importantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Do Conservatives Still Think That Wind And Solar Power Are Future Technologies?
I Keep Reading People Argue That We Have Put So Much Money Into Research, And That Solar And Wind Are Not Viable Options For Supplying Our Energy Needs. 10 Years Ago Germany Put Solar Panels On All Homes And Have Now Generated As Much Power As They Would Have If They Had Built 8 Nuclear (Or If You Are Conservative, &Quot;Nukeular&Quot;) Power Plants. Germany And The Netherlands Use 300 Foot Tall Wind Turbines That Are Cost Effective, And Could Be Used In This Country To Generate Power. Of Course We Know The Answer To This Question. Conservatives Believe Everything That Business Tells Them, And Low And Behold, The People Who Make Money On The System, Say That Other Systems Will Not Work. Mind Blowing!

Because solar power is uneconomical.

Putting solar power on a home, takes around 30 years to recoup the cost of the installation.

The only problem being, the Solar panels only last 10 years before they must be replaced.

So you end up paying alot more for the energy you use than before.

2. The reasons conservatives say they are future technologies, is because they are not economically viable right now.

The cost are not worth the benefits.

3, yes we can get energy from them, but it would double or triple the cost of that energy, compared to what we are using today.

And there are not very many people who can afford the have their energy bill tripled.

4. In the future, there will be solar panels that are more efficient and can produce more energy and panels will be made of better materials that have a longer life span, then those solar panels will be economically viable to install.

I Have Researched Solar Power And Still Wonder Why It Isn'T Used More In The Usa?
I Have Posted Similar Question Before About Solar Power And Asking Why The Usa Hasn'T Done Worth Spit In Geting More Solar Power. A 100 Sqr Ft Of Solar Panel Durring Full Sun Makes Roughly 1Kw. Solar Powered Water Heaters Are An Excellent Alternative To Standard Water Heaters. Cost Wise Some States Are Helping With Paying Some Of The Cost And Tax Rebates From Fed Government Side Help Some. Plus Some States Give Grantes To Home Owners And Possibly Companies. I Have Done Research, I Am Writing A Book (Not Directly On Solar Power, But Has Info About Solar Power And Other Alternatives For Power Mentioned In It) And I Am Still Researching, Asking Questions, Talking To People To Make Informed Writing In My Book As Well As What I Am Putting Up Here. There Is Also Geothermal For Heating And Cooling Which Is Much Better Than A Nuclear Plant Or A Coal Plant For Such. Solar Power Is Effective (Mostly). What Do You Think Is The Biggest Cause Of Usa Not Being More Solar Powered?

I am answering this not as an American but and English person. The reason there is not a lot of usage of solar energy in the uk is because of the start up cost. For an initial out lay of around £15 to £20 thousand pounds you can expect to save around £300 a year, therefore making the pay back time far too long. The government offer around £400 insentive to install a system which to be honest is neither here no there.Therefore I think the main reason that there is not more solar power is cost. Some people do install geothermal pumps, we see them on house design programs but they again are very expensive in relation to saving on energy costs. I dont know if America is the same but I thought you might like a view from across the pond.

Where Are The Best Values In Solar Panels That You Can Put Out And Gather Electricity With?
Where'S The Most Bounce To The Ounce?

Is it that you have a fixed location, and are just looking for the most cost efficient panels?

I couldn't give you a simple answer, as prices change all the time. Also, it's a different matter to get a (possibly portable) panel to charge a battery, vs. the most common type of system (grid-tied) that has no batteries.

The three vendors that come to mind immediately are wind-sun.com, partsonsale.com, and sunelec.com . But some local big box stores may have panels, too, including Home Depot and Costco. And look around the internet, sometimes there are bargains elsewhere.

Some other suggestions:

* look for panels with an STC rating. Without that, the manufacturer can make up any number they want for the power. The panels you would get at (say) Harbor Freight are an example of over-rating.

* look for a 25-year performance warranty. This is pretty much standard in the industry, now.

* I suggest polycrystalline silicon, or monocrystalline silicon, as those are proven to last. Avoid amorphous silicon unless the project does not need to last more than a year.

* panels have gone down to about $1 per watt ($200 for a 200-watt panel) if you shop. At these prices, tax, shipping, and handling become significant. If you need just one panel freighted to your home, the shipping may cost more than the panel itself, and it would make sense to just buy a more expensive one from a local store.

* subject to the above, I would just go by cost, in dollars per watt
