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

Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.

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 decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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 utility business are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

2) Short-Term Energy Outlook -

Energy Sources

Energy is the vital force powering business, manufacturing, and the transportation of goods and services to serve the American and world economies. Energy supply and demand plays an increasingly vital role in our national security and the economic output of our nation. It is not surprising that the United States spends over 500 billion dollars annually on energy.

Increasing energy supplies.
As America's need for energy grows, the Department of Energy is meeting the challenge by establishing clean fuel initiatives to make the most of traditional fossil fuels while investing in cutting edge research to develop sustainable sources such as fusion and to employ hydrogen (an energy carrier like electricity) which can be produced from diverse, domestic sources and greatly reduce our dependence on imported oil.

Modernizing our energy infrastructure.
By developing the infrastructure to support these fuels, DOE is striving every day to protect our nation's energy needs and our planet's environment.

Ensuring the productive and optimal use of energy resources, while limiting environmental impact.
In addition, the Department of Energy is harnessing the power of the earth itself to meet our energy needs. Advances in wind, hydro and geothermal energy allow us to take advantage of clean, abundant energy.

Cooperating on international energy issues.
The Department’s activities are instrumental in establishing the safety, reliability, and efficiency of energy supplies in a global marketplace.

Are The New Electric Cars Worth It?
What If I Want To Travel 1400 Miles To See My Fiance, How Will This Electric Car Be For A Long Over The Road Traveling? If I Want To Go Over The Mackinac Bridge, Will It To Be Light And Get Blown Off The Bridge? Are These New Electric Cars Gonna Be Worth It?

There are electric vehicles that are very worth the expense even with sometimes limited range. The ultra capacitor bus is a good example. Where we have developed ways to transmit electricity electric vehicles have proven their worth in lasting up to 8 times as long as their petrochemical counterparts while giving an infinite range. If there was a political will we could develop this kind of a system for our roadways with present technology and solve congestion problems at the same time.1

The longest range for a battery electric car is just a little over 1000 km.2 The Tesla roadster has gone over 300 miles on a charge3, is rated for over 200 miles and will routinely do just that. But we had electric cars that could go almost 400 miles over 10 years ago.4 They just didn't get a lot of press and the batteries in that vehicle were bought out by Chevron and not allowed in purely Electric cars.5 But most cars like the soon to be released first all electric production vehicle, the Nissan Leaf, will have a full charge range of about 100 miles.

People have and are doing long road trips in Electric vehicles and they are doing it in the same way owners of gasoline vehicles went on long road trips when they first came out. People are arranging ahead for supplies of fuel. One went around the world in a solar taxi. A car went from China to Europe and another group is going from Alaska to the tip of South America on the Pan American Highway.

Electric cars usually have the weight of batteries low in the vehicle and as a result they may be about the same weight but tend to be far more difficult to tip than an ICE vehicle.

But we might also ask if you or your circumstances are right for an electric car. If you expect to roll into any corner station for a 10 minute fill up on the energy storage of your vehicle that can take you 400 miles then you may not be right for an electric car. Then you should wait for a while. Many electric car commuters will find that they are requiring a 2 to 3 hour charge every few nights to keep batteries sufficiently charged. When enough others are driving electric cars and you don't want to be left out any longer that is the time when you might consider your purchase of an electric vehicle.

How To Have Non-Battery Electricity Running In Your House?

Solar panels and wind wheels DO NOT have to store energy, storing the energy just allows for energy to be supplied when it isn't sunny or the wind isn't blowing. In any case cheaper than about $185 doesn't yet exist.

Can You Take A Residential Energy Credit For Solar Accent Lights?
Tax Form 5695. You Are Permitted To Get A Tax Credit For 30% Of Solar Items That &Quot;Uses Solar Energy To Generate Electricity For Use In Your Home&Quot;. Does This Include Solar Items That Do Not Attach To Your Home'S Electrical Grid? Meaning Things Like: Self Contained Solar Outdoor Flood Lights, Solar Driveway Lights, Solar Shed Lights, Etc? They Are Still Used In My Home, And Still Save Energy, Just Not Attached To The Home'S Main Power Source. I'Ve Got Some Other Stuff That I Have To Fill Out The Form For Anyway, Just Wondering If I Can Also Get Credit For These As Well?

No, solar accent lights do not qualify for the credit.

Here's a listing of what qualifies for the credit:

Note what it says about photovoltaic panels: Photovoltaic systems must provide electricity for the residence, and must meet applicable fire and electrical code requirement.

The rinky-dink photo cells on accent lights merely recharge internal batteries on the light unit itself. They do not provide electrical power to the residence and as such do not qualify for the credit.

Explanation Of The Solar Energy?

Hydrogen fusion takes place on the star we call our Sun. Energy can be transferred by radiation to the Earth. What we see is only a small portion of what is received. Photovoltaic (PV) solar cells can capture that energy and turn it into electricity. Solar thermal cells can capture solar energy as heat and are used to heat the air or hot water.

Some solar energy is used directly. When solar energy enters our windows it gives us light and can warm our houses and buildings. Without solar energy the surface of our planet would be about 40 degrees cooler. In a similar way it can warm anything it touches. Solar energy can warm the air and cause the air to begin to move. This moving air is called the wind and so solar energy gives rise to wind energy.

Solar energy causes evaporation and helps to move water from one place to another on our planet.

Plants receive solar energy and convert hydrogen and carbon atoms into chemical bonds that store the solar energy. This is the basis of the food chain. Animals eat plants for energy
