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, cleaning clothes, watching 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 advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners find that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably decrease and even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity expense cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy prices have gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or property owner with fluctuating money flow, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Boost your residential or commercial property value

Several research studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer more rapidly 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 homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost variations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

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

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are necessary elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to run properly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy companies are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can determine how much electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Does Solar Energy Mean?
I Am Doing A Big Project And I Need To Know What Is Solar Energy

Solar energy is light that has been given off by the Sun and is harnessed by humans for multiple uses such as electricity, technology and things of that nature. solar energy is a renewable resource, which means we don't have to worry about running out of it, like fossil fuels(coal, oil, and natural gas). The most common way to obtain solar energy is through solar panels. Solar energy, along with many other renewable resources, are going through extensive research and development. Solar energy is also one of the fastest growing ways we obtain our energy needs.

What Are Some Facts About Solar Energy?
I Am Doing A Science Project And Need Some Help On Solar Energy. Thanks! : )

1. most of the energy given off by the sun is in the form of visible light, that's why our eyes have evolved to see in that range.

2. the amount of energy that hits the earth at the top of the atmosphere is 1.3 to 1.4 kilo watts per square meter

3. enough energy hits the earth from the sun to power every car, truck, train, boat, house, factory and all the equipment in the world many times over.

4. most commercially available solar panels convert 10 to 15% of the sunlight into electricity, but panels exist that convert up to 30%

5. simple devices exist which convert solar energy into heat at close to 100% efficiency (like black pavement). That heat can power a generator at up to 40% efficiency.

6. the wind is powered by the sun, so wind turbines are also solar energy collectors.

7. ocean waves are powered by the wind, so ocean wave powered generators are also solar energy collectors.

8. Most houses will end up with a surplus of electricity if they have 700 watts worth of solar panels, that can easily fit on almost any roof.

9. if a car uses 20 gallons of gas in a week, it would need about 3.5 kw worth of solar panels to feed it's needs, that can also fit on most roofs.

10. the suns rays can be focused with a lens or a curved mirror to produce extremely concentrated beam of light that can produce extremely high temperatures.

What Can Be Done To Manage Energy Use In A Sustainable Way?
Can Anyone Tell Me What Can Be Done To Manage Energy Use In A Sustainable Way? And As An Active Citizen What Can I Do?

We have enough Uranium for millions of years if we use breeder reactors (a proven technology) so we aren't going to be running out any time soon. They are also environmentally friendly with the only waste being some spent fuel that will become less dangerous as time goes on (less dangerous than the ore it came from in about 100 years, we can easily keep it safe for that long).

In a few decades we'll probably have fusion power which should last us a very very long time and the space infrastructure to collect solar power in a place that isn't dark half the time.

How Is Energy In A Solar Or Nuclear Powerplant Made?
I Need To Find Out The Type Of Powerplant And How The Electricity Or The Energy Is Made So Please Help Me!! I Need The Info By This Friday!!

nuclear fission

Nuclear power can come from the fission of uranium, plutonium or thorium or the fusion of hydrogen into helium. Today it is almost all uranium. The basic energy fact is that the fission of an atom of uranium produces 10 million times the energy produced by the combustion of an atom of carbon from coal.

Natural uranium is almost entirely a mixture of two isotopes, U-235 and U-238. U-235 can fission in a reactor, and U-238 can't to a significant extent. Natural uranium is 99.3 percent U-238 and 0.7 percent U-235.

Most nuclear power plants today use enriched uranium in which the concentration of U-235 is increased from 0.7 percent U-235 to (nowadays) about 4 to 5 percent U-235. This is done in an expensive separation plant of which there are several kinds. The U-238 "tails" are left over for eventual use in "breeder reactors". The Canadian CANDU reactors don't require enriched fuel, but since they use expensive heavy water instead of ordinary water, their energy cost is about the same.

In 1993 there were 109 licensed power reactors in the U.S. and about 400 in the world. They generate about 20 percent of the U.S. electricity. (There are also a large number of naval power reactors.) The expansion of nuclear power depends substantially on politics, and this politics has come out differently in different countries. Very likely, after some time, the countries whose policies turn out badly will copy the countries whose policies turn out well.

For how long will nuclear power be available? Present reactors that use only the U-235 in natural uranium are very likely good for some hundreds of years. Bernard Cohen has shown that with breeder reactors, we can have plenty of energy for some billions of year.

Cohen's argument is based on using uranium from sea water. Other people have pointed out that there is more energy in the uranium impurity in coal than could come from burning the coal. There is also plenty of uranium in granite. None of these sources is likely to be used in the next thousand years, because there is plenty of much more cheaply extracted uranium in conventional uranium ores.

A power reactor contains a core with a large number of fuel rods. Each rod is full of pellets of uranium oxide. An atom of U-235 fissions when it absorbs a neutron. The fission produces two fission fragments and other particles that fly off at high velocity. When they stop the kinetic energy is converted to heat - 10 million times as much heat as is produced by burning an atom of the carbon in coal. See the supplement for some interesting nuclear details.

Besides the fission fragments several neutrons are produced. Most of these neutrons are absorbed by something other than U-235, but in the steady-state operation of the reactor exactly one is absorbed by another U-235 atom causing another fission. The steam withdrawn and run through the turbines controls the power level of the reactor. Control rods that absorb neutrons can also be moved in and out to control the nuclear reaction. The power level that can be used is limited to avoid letting the fuel rods get too hot.

The heat from the fuel rods is absorbed by water which is used to generate steam to drive the turbines that generate the electricity.

A large plant generates about a million kilowatts of electricity - some more, some less.

After about two years, enough of the U-235 has been converted to fission products and the fission products have built up enough so that the fuel rods must be removed and replaced by new ones.

What to do with the spent fuel rods is what causes most of the fuss concerning nuclear power.

Solar Panels Science Project?
What Is The Cost Of Solar Energy? What Is Involved In The Installation? What Do Solar Panels Look Like Installed Or In Use?

Hi. If you have the panels, the cost is essentially just the maintenance. The power is free.

Installing panels in the optimum position for sunlight duration and seasonal needs. (A/C vs heat.)

Some of the newer ones are flexible and can conform to about any shape. But south facing window films (in the northern hemisphere) may be the best use.
