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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, seeing TELEVISION, 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 find that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically minimize or perhaps remove your electric costs

Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#2 Make a terrific return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, property electricity costs have gone up by an average of three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or property owner with fluctuating cash circulation, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home worth

Numerous studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost variations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are very important components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and improving company outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of house owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy business are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electricity will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is A Good Solar Panel To Buy?
I Am Fairly New To The Solar Panel Scene, And Am Eager To Try To Set One Up Myself Instead Of Buying A Kit. I Am Looking For A Solar Panel That Puts Out 100 Watts Or More, And Can Produce More Than 20 Volts. Thanks

Hey C, the answer is you should buy a panel that meets your needs. A 100 watt panel is pretty easy to find, but I'm curious about the desired voltage. Most panels are designed to charge existing batteries, which normally come in multiples of 6 volts. This is why battery banks of 12, 24 or 48 volts are so common, and large deep cycle batteries of 6 volts each so easy to find. A panel set up to charge a 12 volt battery normally has 36 cells in it, which yields an open circuit voltage of 18 volts DC. A panel for a 24 volt battery will have 72 cells, with a V max of 36 volts. If you're trying to charge a 12 volt battery, 17 or 18 volts will work fine. If you are trying to do something outside the box like directly power your computer (which has a 19 volt power supply) with a 20 volt panel, then you'll run into some problems that might be too numerous to mention here. Mainly, solar panel voltages are unregulated without a battery to anchor them, this is why they never list a nominal voltage on a panel, only its maximum, it might be anyplace between zero and max if hooked directly to a load. The only exception to this is when hooking directly to a utility intertie grade inverter, they are designed for these large ranges in voltage, almost nothing else is.

If you really want to get involved, here is what I would do. First, get a subscription to Home Power Magazine, it's inexpensive and right to the point. Then look for an energy fair near you in the Calendar section of the mag when it arrives. Go to one of the fairs, we did 12 years ago, now our home is completely powered by the wind and sun. In the mean time, check out the sources below and learn what you can. One thing I encourage people to do is build up a small system themselves, with a 12 volt battery, panel, and small inverter. Now you can run your laptop, or other small electronics and lighting with your own power source. You'll have a much better understanding of the entire technology and be more equipped to make decisions. Home Power has great articles about people doing just what you are trying to do, that is why it's so worth the time and expense. Good luck C, and take care, Rudydoo

How To Use Solar Panel To Generate Electricity?
Hi, I Want To Generate Electricity Using Solar Panel At Home And I Want To Follow A Simple Tutorial. Could You Recommend Me A Good Tutorial?

Photovoltaics are best known as a method for generating electric power by using solar cells to convert energy from the sun into a flow of electrons. The photovoltaic effect refers to photons of light exciting electrons into a higher state of energy, allowing them to act as charge carriers for an electric current. The term photovoltaic denotes the unbiased operating mode of a photodiode in which current through the device is entirely due to the transduced light energy. Virtually all photovoltaic devices are some type of photodiode.

Do Solar Panels Require More Energy During Manufacturing Than They Produce Over Their Lifetime?
A Friend Told Me That The Energy Required To Manufacture A Solar Panel Is Greater Than What The Panel Is Expected To Produce During Its Lifetime, Thus Making Them Inefficient And Unsustainable, And I Have Not Been Able To Find Any Literature Which Agrees. Can Anyone Point Me In An Academic Non Biased Direction? I Remain Skeptical.

There is a study conducted by Giacomo Bizzarri of the University of Ferrara and Gianluca Morini of the University of Bologna found that the COST of installing solar panels over their lifespan is 2.5 time MORE than the cost of purchasing the power they produce.

They more importantly stated that they "...found that the total energy produced over a two-year period outweighs the energy used in manufacture, installation, and maintenance. Their analysis also shows that the manufacture and use of PV panels produces less pollution than fossil fuel based electricity generation."

So there is your answer, they are only more expensive and only now. A few years back gas was only $1.50/gallons here in the USA. Things change quickly. If electricity costs increase by 300% over the next 20-25 years, this study may need to be revised!

Are Diy Solar Panels Legitimate For Saving Electricity?
I Have Seen Diy Software Which Explains Everything For Novices. Specifically, How To Build Your Own Solar Panels And Tie Them Into Your Home Electrical System For About $100 In Parts. Has Anyone Tried Doing This? Was It Easy?

The local codes in most areas in the US won't allow you to install a homemade solar panel on your house, it needs to be UL listed. Don't believe all of those bogus sites that promise you can power your house for $200, you can't. Also, besides the solar panel, you also need an approved inverter to convert the DC power from the solar panels to AC that your appliances need.

Factory built solar panels are generally guarantied for 20 - 25 years, with a life expectancy of twice that. You will never get that life from a homemade panel.

To save money on a solar installation, you may be able to install at least part of it yourself, but the equipment needs to be UL listed or equivalent.

You can see an example of a very small grid-tied electric system here. You can see that the solar panel is just one component. http://www.altestore.com/store/Kits-and-... The output of this system will be very small, but it is a staring point.

You should consider solar water heating as a way to save on your energy bills. Heating your water accounts for about 25% of your energy use. If you can cut that by 75%, you will save a lot of money. Depending on where you are and how many are in your household, it may cost about $5000 for a do-it-yourself installation. There are tax incentives available that could potentially pay for as much as half of the system. These systems can pay for them selves in as little as 4 - 5 years.

A Place Where Energy Is Produced From Solar Panels By Civilians Which Is Than Bought By Government?
There Was This Place Where Civilians Had Solar Panels Which Produced Their Electricity But I Could Not Remember Where Because I Read About This A Long Time Ago And Could Not Remember The Source Or The Place But I Definitely Did Read About It Somewhere.

Most places in the US, if you have solar panels on the house, if the panels are generating more electricity than you are using (say you are at work during the day) the meter on the house, which is used to measure how much electricity you use, turns backwards, meaning your usage up to that point, is now being reduced.

Nothing complex about it, they measure how much you use, and whatever you produce in excess of what you are using at any time, is subtracted from what you use.
