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 home owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous homeowners find that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically minimize and even remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can make up a large portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free 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 decrease your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have gone up by an average of three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with rising and falling money circulation, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Boost your house value

Several studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly 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 educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

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

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are necessary components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and improving company outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving 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 cash down.

Many house owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar service 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 notorious for their changing and undependable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Easy Or Difficult Is It To Obtain Solar Energy?
I Am Doing A Report On Solar Energy And Need A Little Help. If You Could Leave Me The Website You Got The Answer From That Would Be Great!! Thanks For Your Help!! :O()

The largest solar collector is our plants.The sun's energy is stored in the plants leaves and seed.

Why Are We Dragging Our Heals With Alternative Energy Solutions?
According To A Study By David Mills, Chief Scientific Officer Of Ausra, A 92 Square Mile Patch Of Southwestern Desert Could Power The Entire Country Via Solar Power. The Solar Converts Energy To Steam Which Is Used To Power The Turbines To Make Electricity. It Would, However, Require A Complete 'Revamping' Of Our Current Electrical Infrastructure From An Ac Grid To A High Voltage Dc Grid. Instead Of Bailing Out Failed Businesses Like Aig, We Could Have Changed Our Whole System And Cut Our Oil Dependency In Half. Most Of Us Are Aware That Gm Produced The Ev1, A Highly Efficient And Highly Functional Electric Vehicle That Regularly Got 100-140 Miles Before Recharging. The Top Speed Was Electronically Regulated To Reach 80Mph, Without The Regulator Electric Cars Have Been Clocked At Over 180Mph. The Ev1 Was Mysteriously Recalled And All Models Crushed For Political Reasons. The Technology Not Only Exists, But Has Existed For Decades. So What Are We Waiting For? Who Or What Is Holding Us Back, And What, If Anything, Can Be Done About It?? Sources;Http://En.Wikipedia.Org/Wiki/General_Motors_Ev1 Http://Ev1.Org/ Http://Www.Ecogeek.Org/Content/View/991/

All of your ideas make great sense but the country is still moving in another direction. The process for the first nuclear power plant in 30 years has been started. Oil companies are promoting hydrogen vehicles so that they can supply hydrogen and we will be duped into thinking we have a clean fuel. Some electric car companies have received funds, but only those who were politically connected and the review process was done by a very small number of civil servants (no doubt hired from the petrochemical industry) And the Supreme court recently handed down a ruling that says corporations can now fund political candidates in an unlimited amount.

Soon we may begin to see the days of the corporate candidate where corporate logo's may be a part of the political campaign and the politicians will no longer be known as the Senator from Arizona or Texas but the Dow chemical, Chevron, or Monsanto candidate. It may be the last step in removing that fiction that political "representatives" represent people instead of corporations.

What Is The Average Cost For Home Solar Panels?

Despite what many people say, you don't need batteries for a solar system if you are going to also be connected to the electric company (grid). You just need the panels and an inverter (and mounting hardware and safety equipment like breakers and fuses).

Most people don't generate all of the electricity they use. They offset some of their use with solar and buy the rest from the grid. You can get a very small grid-tied solar system for as little as $3000. However, it won't generate much electricity at all. I'd say an average size system is around $10k - $20k. Here are some packages that show all of the components needed. http://www.altestore.com/store/Kits-and-...

If you want to see how much you need, look at your electric bill and see how many kwh you buy each month. Put that number into a calculator like this one, and see how big of a system you need. http://www.altestore.com/store/calculato... Installed cost is about $8 per watt of solar panel.

How Can Solar Energy Be Used During Darker Parts Of The Year?
Trying To Figure Out The 2 Most Renewable Sources.. Solar Puts Up A Pretty Good Fight But It Can'T Hold Energy For Like 4 Months During Winter...? So What Can Be Done About That If Anything.

Solar is pretty useless unless your in Arizona or California.
Until we can find an economical efficient way of storing electricity, we should forget wind and solar.
They are expensive, but that's not the problem they are unreliable and uncontrollable.
Any power station engineer knows you have to exactly balance load to demand, controlling frequency in very a narrow range, if it goes outside that, generator trips occur follow by a blackout.
South Australia just suffered a statewide blackout, they are trying to blame the weather, but if they had had more coal fired stations running and less wind generators they would have survived it.

I Would Like To Power Some Home Appliances Such As Computer And Tv How Would I Select Solar Panels For This?
I Have Been Studying The Possibility Of Using Solar Electricity For Home Use. I Have No Idea Of How It Works, Thanks. If I Have To Go Into Solar Business What Do I Need To Do In Order To Convince The Prospective Buyers. There Is So Much Lack Of Awareness.

Don't go into a business you know NOTHING about!
Solar power is DC so most home apliances won't work. The panels are used to charge a battery bank and the batteries provide the power. it can be done but effectively you would need to rewire your house to work like a camper van or a yacht! Contact me directly if you are
