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.

All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of property owners find that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly lower and even remove your electric expenses

Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past ten years, domestic electricity costs have increased by an average of 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or property owner with changing cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your expenditures.

Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for homes equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, 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 tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a terrific method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will remove 3 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 agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.

Many house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Panels On House Vs Hybrid Auto - Which Does More For The Envirornment?
There Are A Lot Of Variables But Is There Any Studies To Evaluate Which Might Be A Better Choice Over The Other?

Solar panels and Hybrid both help our environment by either not using energy, creating energy, or using drastically less energy.

Using both would be a great way to help the environment, but you have to consider where you are the most; in your car, or at your home? If you're mostly on the road, then you would probably prefer Hybrid. But if you're mostly at home, then Solar panels.

Me personally; I would choose Solar panels. Just because you then become energy independent in your home, and you don't have to deal with a huge electric bill. The thing about it is that they're awfully expensive.

But if you choose using the Hybrid, I would also recommend you look around at other alternatives. Yes, Hybrid is a great way to go, but it still uses gas. No, not as much as regular cars, but in the end, it will still produce the same amount of CO2 and global warming pollution. Try finding a diesel car and use biodiesel or vegetable oil to help fuel your car. Biodiesel doesn't contribute to the global warming problem, and vegetable oil only spins around the CO2 that's already in the air.

Solar Panel?
A Solar Panel Facing The Sun At Noon In Mid-Summer Receives More Intensity Of The Light Than When It Is At Horizontal. However, It Can Receives More Total Solar Energy When It Is At Horizontal Than When It Is Tilted During A Long Summer Day. Regradless If It Is Shaded By Building Or Trees. Why Is That So?

That does seem a little confusing. But is really pretty easy to understand.

When the solar panel is facing the sun at noon it will produce the most power it can be it summer or winter. But there is a however involved here. In the summer the sun comes up in the north east and sets in the north west which would be behind the solar panel in the morning and late after noon. So you lose that part of the day. By laying it back 15 deg more the sun will be able to shine on the face of the solar panel all day long. The panel will not capture as much direct sunlight at noon but the extra gain from the morning and late after noon will more then pay back the loss.

Check out this page. http://www.oynot.com/solar-radiation.htm... it shows a graph and explains it better.

Installing Solar Panels On Roof?
What Is A Good Sight That I Could Go To About Installing Solar Panels And All Of The Considerations Of It?

That depends on what type of solar you are talking about. There is PV (photo voltaic) and Thermal solar which uses the sun's warmth to heat water run through your home.

People still think that PV solar is the only kind and yet Thermal solar is actually the more efficient and most benefical solar power for the enviroment.

Here are some links for you...

This site has all sorts of alternate power options for the home, I linked it to the grid-tied home solar systems.
http://www.wholesalesolar.com/Gridtie.ht...

This site is for Thermal Solar heat systems
http://www.solarroofs.com/purchase/index...

In both cases I would recommend you call to get specifics before ordering anything.

Where Can I Buy Cheap Solar Cells From?
I Am Look For 6X6 Solar Cells Cheap. Where Can I Find It?

You can look on eBay.

But if your intention was to build your own panels, be aware that you can buy ready-made solar laminate from places like sunelec.com for far less than it would cost to buy cells and manufacture your own panel.

Also beware of scams that claim you can build your own panels cheaply and easily, and save thousands. There is no "hidden secret". If it was so easy to do, the news would spread like wildfire, and be free, like jailbreaking a phone or setting a DVD player to play all regions. Yet, we don't see people using homemade panels on their houses.

When you see someone with a slick pitch about building solar panels asking for any money at all, it's a ripoff.

What Is The Average Cost To Add Solar Panels For Home Electricity?
I Live In A Tri-Level Home Approximately 1400 Square Feet. I Use Around 3000 Kwh A Month And Spend 400-500 A Month On My Electric (Only) Bill. I Figure If Im Going To Be Spending That Much Anyway, I Might As Well Help The Environment And Get The Tax Credit. If You Can Give Me The Average Cost To Add The Panels To My Home, How Many Panels I May Need, And The Average Cost Savings On An Electric Bill I Would Truly Appreciate It.

Go here first:

They have state by state listings for renewable energy. Then contact your local electric provider and ask them who is licensed by them to do solar installs. You cannot legally do a solar grid-tie yourself.

It's a long term investment, but thin-film solar has come down to $1 a watt, so it's much quicker to get a payback than it was 2 years ago.

You cannot run a/c on solar, it takes too much power. Your 400-500/month bill it probably from heating/cooling cost.
Going direct solar water heating will save you money very quick. Most places encourage it now.

Your utility should also have state sponsored energy conservation programs like energy audits and free or cheap added insulation that would help you cut your bill.
