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.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Why We Go For Solar Energy?

The advantages of using solar energy in your home are numerous. But the 2 prime reasons are

1) Cost

2) Kindness to the environment

As conventional sources of energy deplete and the temperature of the world rises, the need for alternate sources of energy is becoming more evident. While heated debates may be taking place about the viability of clean coal, everyone is in agreement that solar energy will be a leading alternate energy option in the future.

There is a lot of talk about the depletion of fossil fuels, such as oil, and that the world will run out of these fuels in the near future. One of the main advantages of solar energy is that it's not going to disappear anywhere.

Solar power is the most 'green' energy source in the world. It does not damage the environment around it in any way. There are no residues, waste or byproducts of any kind and the process of capturing the energy does not produce any noise pollution.

No one will charge you any money for harvesting the sun's energy. Once you have setup the solar panels, you can start converting solar energy into electricity for free. Thus you have no worries of spending a large portion of your salary on electricity bills.

Solar technology is very portable. You can unplug the panel and take it with you on a trip. Tiny solar panels are also available, which you can use to charge your electronic gadgets while you're on the move.

Solar power, along with other renewable energy solutions such as wind power, gives us the hope that in the coming days the environment around us will be much less polluted.

The cost factor has been something that has mitigated against solar panels. But, with the rapid growth in technology and increase in demand, solar technology is becoming more affordable. New developments have put solar energy on a par with coal manufacturing plants on a per-kilowatt basis. Hot water panel technology has also seen great improvement in recent years as well, and the payback times for domestic systems can now be as short as five years.

By changing to renewable energy sources such as solar energy and wind power, you can save yourself a lot of money..and leave a better planet behind than the one you found.

Why Is Arizona Not Mandating Solar Energy To Be Used???? Hello Valley Of The Sun!!?

Incentives. If there is no money to be made by an action, generally most municipalities, city and federal view any initial expenditures as drains on the economy. But if they are selective about what issues have a long range positive outlook, they should definitely look into solar as well as wind machines. I also know of a few other applications which can be used by individuals even if your govt is not "user-friendly"

Why Is Solar Energy Important In Arizona?

The intensity of solar energy is greater in Arizona than most areas of the US as much as 8 kilowatt hours of energy per day. A kilowatt hour is about the energy put out by a one horsepower motor running for one hour. Most of the country receives an average of between 3 and 5 kilowatts of solar energy per day. The greater intensity of solar energy in Arizona makes investments in large solar arrays much more attractive.

Why Do People Not Understand That The Sun Does Not Have To Be Bright For Solar Power To Work?
The Panel Draws Energy Even During Cloudy And Overcast Days. That Energy Is Stored In A Battery Source To Power Homes Etc. Germany Has Doing This For Years, Japan Also Uses This Technology. And Neither Japan Or Germany Are Known For Their Sunny Days.

Solar power is still a relatively new technology so there is a lack of general education on the topic. It is no different then when people thought gas or electricity in their homes would cause explosions. In time as the source becomes more practical and popular people will be more educated on the subject.

Are You Doing Anything To Help Reduce Global Warming? (Only For People Who Care About The Environment)?
What Are You Doing To Help Reduce Global Warming.

"Each of us must make energy saving changes in our lives, and convince our family and friends to do the same, so each of us takes personal responsibility for reducing our own CO2 footprint on the planet. How can we expect others to change, if we don't follow our own advice. We have an opportunity to lead by example. First, we must educate ourselves on the problem, and the steps we, personally, can take to solve it.

Simple steps, like lowering our thermostats in winter, and raising them in summer; replacing regular light bulbs with compact florescent bulbs; using less hot water; insulating your home; turning off (and unplugging) electric devices not in use; walking, biking, carpooling or taking public transportation when possible; buying products that use less packaging material; buy locally grown foods and shop at your local farmer's market; buy organic foods; keeping the air in your automobile's tires inflated and the engine well maintained; and, of course, recycling, can make a significant difference.

We can go even further than that. When we need to replace an appliance - choose one with an energy star label. When it comes time to buy a new car, look at buying a hybrid (or one that runs on alternative fuels, like E85). If it's available in your area, switch to green power, that uses renewable resources like solar and wind to provide electricity to your home - or if you can afford it, install your own solar panels on your home. Whenever you get a chance - plant a tree."
