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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, lots of residents discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically reduce or perhaps remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary 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 lower your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Make a great return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past ten years, property electrical power rates have gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with changing cash circulation, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home or business value

Numerous research studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes 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 an essential component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry 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 nation. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a terrific method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common domestic solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are necessary components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run properly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer buying choices, creating goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of house owners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy companies are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The Cost Of 1 Unit Electricity When Producing Electricity From Sun Light?
One Unit Means 1000Watt/Hour

I have recently been carrying out a project to make a realistic costing of solar power versus electricity from the national grid. Unfortunately, the figures do not look good,The cost of solar power is at least 5 times that of grid power. This project is to be installed on a holiday house that I am building. The ides was to be as "green" as possible, and use maximum renewable energy, but not to compromise my comfort and safety. I decided to use solar electricity for 1) lighting 2) operate low power consumers such as TVs, DVD recorder, 3) intermittent computeruse, etc.The proposed system designed by a local supplier was to have the bankof solar power cells on the roof, During the day this would charge a bank of batteries, which would allow consumption at night. This required two separate electrical installations, one for the solar system and the second for nonsolar appliances such as cookers, dishwasher, clothes washing machine, microwave, electric kettles, etc. Water will be heated by direct solar heaters , btut will pass through an electric hot water tank which will only operate when the solar heated feed water is not up to temperature - under noemal circumstances, this should not occur with any frequency.
But in the cases of bad weather when the battery charging was not optimal, there had to be a switch over system to allow operation of the normally solar powered appliances, lighting etc direct from the grid.
Allowing for amortization of the capital cost of the installation over a realistic time, say 10 years, the loss of interest on the capital, and the possible replacement of the battery system at least once during this time, the costs do not really justify going to a solar system. Under present conditions, based on cost only, solar is an expensive option,
It is incorrect to base any decision on the concept: Once the equipment is installed, the power is free. This is equivalent to arguing that power from a nuclear power station should be free because, once the plant is installed, the fuel costs are almost zero. I am very much in favour of solar heating, solarpower, etc, but at the present time, it is an expensive option.

About How Much Does It Cost Everytime I Charge My Cell Phone'S Battery?
Just Wondering.. Because I Just Bought A Solio Solar Charger And Wondering How Much I'Ll Save. I Didn'T Buy It So I Could Save Money, I Bought It Because I Wanted To Use Less Energy From The Grid. But I Am Just Wondering What Kind Of Energy I Will Be Saving. How Much Does It Costs To Charge My 3 Volt Cell Phone Battery One Time?

i dont think youll save a lot of energy...but its great to know that some people are using other "GREEN" alternatives to power their electronic devices.

How Can The Demacratics Be For The Little People When They Don'T Care That Oil Prices Are @ $4.00 A Gallon?
Senate Republicans Have Threatened To Block Nearly All Other Bills Pending Before The August Recess If Democrats Refuse To Vote With Them On Expanding Offshore Drilling. We Need All Forms Of Energy To Be Explored And Yes My Friends It Also Means Drilling For Oil..Http://Thehill.Com/Leading-The-News/Senate-Gop-Hands-Dems-Oil-Ultimatum-2008-07-23.Html

You create a false premise in your argument. They vote for off shore drilling or they don't care about people. You fail to consider that they also care about the environment which ultimately effects the people.
They also perhaps care about a long term solution versus oil for another 1 to 10 years and then leaving the problem in the hands of the next generation.

I am not opposed to off shore drilling per se if it can done done safely. However, when it used as a reason to not expand alternative energy options then it becomes harmful.
Let's see politicians do something right (just this once) and approve drilling along with stimulus packages for cities that use a portion (even 25%) of their power needs from wind, solar, hydro, thermal, maybe even nuclear before we dump more oil and profits to corporate interest.

How Much Energy Does The Average American Use A Day?

I'm not sure that this is an easy question to honestly answer. We may be able to figure out how much energy is used in America, divide it by the number of people, and come up with an average. By definition, this would generate a number relating to an average amount.

But, where would you place the amount of energy "people use at work"? A heavy equipment operator probably uses more energy than a parts runner in a hybrid vehicle. A movie ticket taker probably uses more energy in their work space, the marque lights out front, than a landscape maintenance person. A milling machine operator certainly uses more energy than a seamstress. How do we count the building amenities like the heat and air conditioning in an office building versus the lack of it in a warehouse?

For the sake of argument, let us take the typical "American household". I am not convinced that we truly have a good picture of just how folks are living in their homes. Nor, do we particularly have a good current picture of how many people are living in any one household. I'm not convinced that we can particularly even use typical income levels as a category as so many people are now digging them selves out of debt and/or helping others. Further with aid programs from food assistance to medical assistance, government services, and private service providers all under budgetary constraints and reductions, I suspect that the average amount of energy used by many Americans is about to also reduce. The over-all average use may not change but, the number of people reducing their energy consumption is about to increase as a function of income.

I would also ask, what type of energy are you speaking of? We use electricity, natural gas, and oil in our homes. We use an assortment of energy for our vehicles. And, even those of use without solar panels often find positive uses for the amount of solar energy we do receive.

Energy Transformation Between Different Types Of Energy: Mechanical, Solar, Geothermal, Nuclear, Chemical &?
Thermal. I Am So Confused About All Of This, Please, Help! Finals Soon!

Aaron,
Concentrate on knowing what the word transformation means.

It means to undergo change from one type to another.

Lets relate everything in your list to a McDonalds Big Mac


To chew a Big Mac you expended Mechanical Energy......
The lettuce in the big mac grew in a field and solar energy was absorbed by the plant.
The solar energy came from the sun which is powered by nuclear energy.
To convert grass into meat chemical changes occurred inside the cow.
You happened to eat in Hilo Hawaii where 20% of the electricity comes from geothermal heat of the volcano, that gets transformed into electric energy to run the lights in the restaurant.

The food you consumed before you ate the big mac under went chemical changes to release energy so you had the energy to chew.


so on so forth
