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 property owner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, lots of property owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically lower or even remove your electric bills

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy bill cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, property electricity costs have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Multiple research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component 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 price changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with 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 nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that select to run properly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and improving service outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- 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 notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate just how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Costs Of Solar Thermal Energy?

Solar thermal is one of the least expensive and most effective ways to use solar energy.

There are different ways of using it to heat water or your home, some more costly than others. The overall cost will depend on where you live. The more temperate the climate the cheaper it'll be.

What Are The Benefits If All Cars Were Electric Versus All Gas?
So Heres My Thought. If All Cars Ran On Electricity, We Would Be Burning More Coal To Produce That Energy And Still Release Co2 Into The Atmosphere, So Whats The Exchange In This Case. Anyone Out There With Education In Environmental Chemistry/Science Be Able To Answer This?

Coal pollution should not increase if most cars switched to electric, and here's why:
*
1) It takes nearly the same amount of electricity to refine gasoline as it takes to charge electric cars (about 6 kilowatt-hours per gallon of gas, according to US Dept. of Energy.) So if gas usage goes down as EV usage goes up, electricity usage barely changes.
*
2) Coal usage is already declining. Today it makes up less than half the energy on the grid. This trend will continue. Solar is poised to become less expensive than coal in as little as 10 years from now.
*
3) Electric vehicles are 3 to 5 times more efficient than gasoline vehicles. More miles on less energy equals less overall pollution, no matter what you burn to make electricity.

Solar Powered Cell Phones?
Solar Powered Cell Phones Are Now Available In China And Prototypes Are In The Making In Germany. How Soon Will This Technology Make It To The Us?

Cell phones normally last a week or longer on a charge so why would you want to leave your cell phone setting in the sun to charge? Not many people stand in the sun with their cell phone hooked on the top of their heads?

This would be a useless product as far as I can tell. There are already portable solar cell phone and laptop chargers in the USA and I am sure in all other countries as well.

Nuclear Vs. Renewable Resources?
Are You Pro Or Anti-Nuclear Energy? Why Or Why Not? Preferably I Wanted To See The Points Of The Other Side - Because I'M An Anti One; I Don'T Want Another Technology That Will Harm The Environment.

Cautiously pro. The nuclear power industry does have an extremely good safety record. Chernobyl was a big exception, and was caused by poor engineering, poor maintenance, and poor training. More people die every year mining coal or drilling for oil than have ever died from nuclear power. However, the big unsolved problem is what to do with the nuclear waste. None of the "solutions" dreamed up so far are satisfactory, so until this is solved I would prefer to leave nuclear power alone and investigate other options (solar, wind, tidal, geothermal). These technologies could become cost effective if enough money is put into the necessary research and development.

Why Is Biofuel The Best?
My Class Is Doing A Debate On What Energy Is The Best. I'Ve Been Assigned To Be A Hippie Who Thinks Biofuel Is The Best Energy Source. I'M Making Signs (For The Hippies) And I Can'T Think Of Any Puns Or Phrases That Promotes Biofuel. I Also Need Possible Information About Biofuel And What They'Re Doing About The Food Shortage. Also, My Classmates Will Ask Tough Questions. So Providing Me With Possible Answers And Hard Questions So I Can Practice Would Be Great. Plus The Puns And Phrases For Biofuel. Thanks In Advance =]

It's not the best. Ethyl Alcohol produces more carbon dioxide than gasoline does. Further, it takes more fertilizer to grow nitrogen intensive corn, thus contributing to the consumption of large amounts of fossile fuels to make the fertilizer. Plus the fertilizer contaminates lakes, streams and the oceans. Biofuel is not the answer to the energy problem.

Mark my words - hydrogen fuel is the answer because combustion of hydrogen produces water and this produces no contamination, does not require the consumption of fossile fuels. Hydrogen could be created using solar power to generate electricity to split pure water into hydrogen gas and oxygen. An engine can be built that does this, splitting water into hydrogen gas through electrolysis and then combusting it with the oxygen which is separated - however, our government and strong corporate interests surpress this knowledge because too much money is at stake by corporate interests to make it happen yet on a large scale. Eventually, it will happen, but its going to take a lot more suffering on the part of humanity before those corporate interests get out of the way of common sense and progress.
