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 everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, many property owners discover that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly decrease or perhaps remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of money.

#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense cost 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 versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power prices have actually increased by approximately three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home or business value

Numerous research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher property worths 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 end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price changes in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with 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 tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a terrific way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are important components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to operate properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and improving business results.

#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 loan down.

Many house owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- 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 Financial investment

The energy companies are infamous for their varying and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can You Use Solar Panels, Wind Energies And Dams As A Renewable Recouurce?
Hey Everyone, I Need Some Homework Help. I Am Doing A Science, 1 Page Essay On The Subject (Its The Title) I Need To A Little Bit Of Informattion For I Can Put It Together Into One Essay. Thanks For The Help!

Okay... this seems familiar...

Well then. Solar Panels harvest energy from the sun. Sometimes, panels are used to create electricity via photons from the Sun's rays. Other times, the panels are simply deflectors that are used to boil water in a tube where the sunlight is concentrated.

Pro: The Sun won't run out of energy (hopefully) so this is renewable.
Con: The Sun won't shine every day! When it rains, the system is unusable, or when its cloudy, and this process only works during the daytime.

Wind Energy: Wind farms "harvest" the power of the wind by using the wind to blow on propellers that are attached to a generator to create energy.

Pro: Wind energy won't hurt the environment. Its reusable.
Con: Wind won't blow all the time, and you must have a good, strong, steady wind for this to work, or even be profitable. The wind is very random, and constructing "wind farms" takes up lots of space and time and resources, and usually can't produce much energy.

Dams
Hehe, fun word. Dams are used to block rivers and use the force of the water in order to turn turbines, like the wind energy.

Pro: Dams are efficient sources of energy, and there are multiple rivers in the world where one could build such a dam. Also, dams generate decent quantities of electricity.
Con: Everyone thinks that dams are clean. Well they're wrong. Dams create resovoirs behind them, blocking the natural flow of water, and pretty much creating a big fat lake. This may seem good, but too much water may make the soil over hydrated. If this is the case, then the plants around the resovoir die out, releasing massive amounts of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere; the very thing that we tried to avoid by building such a dam. Also, dams block the natural flow of water from the river. While they provide decent energy, the fish and various aquarius life are stuck. For example, you may have heard many examples of salmon blocked from their feeding ground and mating ground all because of a dam that blocked their way. This creates a major imbalance in our ecosystem.

My knowledge is very limited, so try researching your topic.

Hope this helps :D

Can I Connect A Solar Panel Directly To An Inverter?
I'M Working On A Small Project Where I Can Connect Low Voltage/Watts Equipment Using An Inverter Connected Directly To My Solar Panels. I Know You Can Connect Them Directly To Each Other But What Is The Power Ratio To Run The Inverter And Its Load....Meaning. If I Want To Run A 100 Watt 12V Inverter, What Solar Panel(Wattage/Amps/Voltage) Do I Need. How Much Amps/Voltage Do I Need From The Solar Panels To Make The Inverter Work, With And Without Load?

Normally it is not connected directly because the voltage and current output from the panel is fluctuating as it is entirely dependent on the sun's rays.
So the solar panel is therefore connected via a "Charge Controller" to a 12V lead acid battery to charge it.
The battery is then connected to the inverter.

Are Solar Panels Worth The Price?

It depends how you plan to use them.

They are not always the best answer for power production.

For many they can be worth the price if they have realistic expectations from them and understand their limitations.

For others, with unrealistic expectations, they may not be practical for their needs and would be wasted money.

Think of them as a tool in a tool box.

What Do You Think Our Our Best Bets For Near Future Alternate Fuel Vehicles?
Near Future, Like Within The Next 5 - 10 Years. E85 - Ethanol? Biodiesel? Vegetable Oil? Plug-In Hybrid? Hydrogen? Electric Only? Anything I'Ve Left Out?

E85 - Ethanol, Bio-diesel, and Vegetable Oil Are all carbon producing fuels.

The Hydrogen Highway has not pulled the proper permits because the by product of producing hydrogen from natural gas, which is where most industrial hydrogen comes from, is Carbon dioxide, a green house gas ! ! !

A Plug-in Hybrid is the closest to a solution until the hybrid vehicles finally develop batteries that can store enough energy to get a reasonable range.

Plug-in Electric is the ultimate clean fuel for transportation. The average commute in the USA is 25 miles. Well within the range of any decent electric car. If you combine that with solar voltaic panels on the roof of your house the cost of driving your car for most of your needs would be free.

Wind Generators On Cell Phone Towers -- Are Solar Panels Too Expensive?
Some Cell Phone Towers Alongside I-78 In Nj Now Have &Quot;Windmills&Quot; On Top. The Diameter Of The Turbine Is Around 6 Feet. They Look Much Like The Farm Windmill Generators In The 30-Ties. With Many Blades. Not Just The Three As On Modern Day Large Scale Wind Turbines. Questions: 1. Did I Assume Correctly, Those Are Electrical Generators? (Or Are They Possibly Just &Quot;Wind Speed&Quot; And &Quot;Weather Conditions&Quot; Measurement Devices, Operated By A Company Other Than The Cell Phone Operators?) 2. Why So Many Blades? I Thought That Was The Issue With The Old Farm Windmill Generators, They Were Not As Efficient. 3. Why Windpower? I Thought Solar Panels Are The &Quot;In-Thing&Quot;. (Are Solar Panels In Fact Too Expensive To Install And Service? Do They Need Bigger Back-Up Batteries, Since They Do Not Work At Night?) Http://Www.Energyadvocate.Com/Fw90.Htm

1. If they're 6 foot in size they must be for electricity.
2.So they can be used in low wind.
3.Wind is cheaper and makes more power. Solar has good pr from people who know really nothing about it.

Size of th battery would most likely be the same seeing you can run out of wind just as long as you run out of light on rainy days.
