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.

"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

Frequently Asked Questions

What Happens When You Shine Different Calor Lights On A Solor Panels?
Like If You Put A Piece Of Blue Glass On A Solar Panel How Much Energy Would That Create.

If you put a piece of blue glass (glass that has a white light shone through it that turns the light blue) would only allow the energy contained in the blue light through to the solar panel. This would decrease a large amount of energy from the solar panel unless it was specifically designed to absorb that color of light.

A majority of the light from the sun is near infrared and visible light. Thus solar panels tend to absorb all visible incoming light and use that for power, rather than a specific small band of light (say, the color blue)

What Are Alternatives To The Usage Of Coal? *Radioactivity Paper.?
I Am Currently Writing A Paper (A Persuasive Writing) On Radio Activity. In It, I Am Stating That We Should Let Off Of The Usage Of Coal So That We Aren'T Making A Lot Of Nuclear Power To Prevent Radio Activity/Radiation. Which Causes Skin Cancer And Even Death. I Need Help In Knowing The Alternatives That We Could Possibly Use. My Boyfriend Suggested That Each Household Use Solar Panels,And/Or Windmills. All Help Is Appreciated.

hydroelectric, green landfill gas like methanol, biofuel from burning wood chips, combined cycle technology - steam and gas turbines

Aren'T Solar Panels & Wind Mills A Joke?
Think About It. If Solar And Wind Would Work Everywhere In The Usa The Private Sector Would Fund It As It Would Be A Money Maker. Hmmm No Private Sector Wants To Go Near Solar And Wind And That Is Why Our Government Has To Fund It With Our Tax Dollars. Also, In The Usa Like Seattle Which Gets A Tremendous Amount Of Rain Which Means No Sun And No Wind, How Will It Work There? What About In Other States Where Hurricanes & Tornadoes Are Normal, Hail Is Normal, Snow Is Normal Etc...... How Much Is Your Home Owners Insurance Going To Be To Insure Wind Mills/Solar Panels Once Mother Nature Destroys Them? Where Are All The Cables/Wires Going To Be Stored For Wind Mills Not To Mention All The Containers ? Question: Shouldn'T We Look Into This Further Before Ruining Our Country With It And Start Using Our Own Natural Resources And Nuclear Which Is Clean?

Solar and wind technology isn't advanced enough for this. Maybe in a few decades...

What Does The Green Party Stand For ? No Haters Please....?
I Am 17 And I Am Starting To Get A Little More Interested In Politics. I Am Interested In Conserving Energy And Using Re Usable Energy Such As Solar And Wind Power. I Am Into Bio Degradable Products And What Not Too And Helping The Environment I'M Not Too Sure About The Green Party - Would Anyone Mind Explaining It A Little More To Me Please? Do Not Bother Commenting If You Are Just Going To Slate It - I Couldn'T Care Less If You Don'T Agree With What They Do I Just Want To Know What They Stand For So I Can Make My Own Mind Up About It!

They don't want people to use the earth's natural resources. They'd be good if our technology and cultures was like, 1000 years more advanced, but... In todays world no. Vote somethin else. Preferably Independent.

Solar Panels?
I Need To Find Out More Information Concerning Solar Energy For Single Home Use. If You Have Solar Panels Or Have Had In The Past Please Informme If They Are Worth The Cost To Lower My Ultilty Bill? I Live In The State Of Texas And My Current Rage Is 11. Per Kwh. Thank You For Your Time And Help

It cost .7 per kWh here. I added up the cost of my system and I insalled it will take me almost 40 years to get my money back. I should be dead by then. Maybe I will sell the house and make it back becaue it does increase the value of a home.

I just went in to a 2 page posting on how to wild guess what it would cost in one of the last three postings.

Check back through my post. There is no need to repeat the same information.
