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 house owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing 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 substantial, many property owners discover that the benefit, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically decrease or even remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 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 save a lot of money.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power costs have actually increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or property owner with changing cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Numerous research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up 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 an essential part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country 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 total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great way to decrease 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 remove 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are crucial elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that pick to operate responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

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

With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate just how much electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Many Solar Panels Does It Take To Power A Three Bedroom House, And How Much Would It Cost?

Can't help with the cost, but my 6 kW photovoltaic solar system has 40 panels. In Martinez CA I get an annual average of about 20 kWh per day. Check your utility bills and see how much you use. That will give you a rough idea of what to expect.

You could check with your building department to determine where solar systems have been installed in your area. Most folks who have them are willing to talk about them.

6 Volt Solar Panels To Charge?
Ive Got 4 Solar Panels At 6 Volts Each What Is The Best Way To Wire Them Up To Run A 12 Volt Power Inverter

I know when you wire batteries up in series negative to positve and positive to negative then you add the voltages together. Like in a flashlight.

When you wire them up in parralel which is negative to negative and positive to positive, it remains the same voltage like when you jump start a car.

So somehow you will need to wire 2 sets up in parrel, then combine the two in series.

Just guessing. I would definitely check the final voltage with a $10 multimeter from walmart before you use it.

Are Solar Panals Real Expensive?

If they were not expensive everyone would be buying them and the government would not need to try subsidizing their purchase.

Unless you are in a frost-free area they need an antifreeze solution to circulate through the panels and heat exchangers to pick up the heat from that. They can also have costly repairs if tree branches fall on them. Unless you have a roof facing south you need a support to hold them up to catch the sun (with the potential for roof leaks where the supports are attached.)

How Do You Build A 3-D Model Of A Plant Cell?
I Would Like To Build A 3-D Model Of A Plant Cell For A Biology Project. I Would Not Like To Use Food.But If I Have To I Will Manage.

You do not have to use food! The simplest, and best way to build a 3d model is to use parts that have metaphorical significance instead of things that look like the actual plant part.
For example, use a shoebox for the cell wall of a plant-- this is a good analogy because the cell wall of a plant is rigid and gives the rest of the cell its sturdy (but relatively immobile) structure. For the chloroplasts, you can put in a small piece of mirror and call it a "solar energy panel" because chloroplasts essentially harness energy in the form of sunlight and turn it into a usable energy for themselves.

By making these analogies, you will have really nice ways to remember the organelles of the cell, and you will also avoid food altogether. Good luck!

What Are Other Opinions On This Potential Stimulus Package?

The thing that made the Great Depression great was that we allowed the market to adjust by itself. For three years. It didn't and finally we stepped in and did all of those socialist things that kept our people working and the economy moving. But what really got us out of the depression was the Great War. At the end of WWII we were 125% of the GNP in debt, compared to the 1% we are now in debt.

Learning from our experiences we jumped right into the fray this time. Not everything was done correctly. We are still trying to bail out AIG but this time have modified the agreement to be more like the European Union's. Now we own stock in AIG and have voting rights on what they do. No more parties at the SPA ! ! !

In the end we need to create domestic jobs. We need to create our own energy. If we create a demand for Algae farms that produce oil in prodigious amounts when we use CO2 saturated water that was used to scrub smoke stacks from an electric generating dynamo, we lessen the carbon loading of the atmosphere from the smoke stacks and create a new crop that produces Oxygen and Oil. Whew, that was a long sentence that wound around a viable solution to at least two of our problems. Lack of domestic energy and too much CO2 in the atmosphere.

When we are spending $700 billion a year on foreign oil and complaining about spending $700 billion to bail out wall street we need to take alook at how we are spending our money.

If it was mandated that every new house built would have to have a Geo-Thermal heat pump to heat and cool the house, Solar-Voltic panels to generate free electricity to not only run the heat pump but charge the Electric Vehicle in the garage, we would be free of our dependence on oil in less time than it would take to drill, and make productive, new oil wells off shore or in Alaska.

How many new products, like Geo-Thermal heat pumps and Solar Panels, would we be producing with that plan? How many farmers would be back at work? How many new houses built? New cars made? UM, a lot? Yes that many.

The old way is not working, lets get started on the new way.
