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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of home owners discover that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly reduce or even remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy costs have increased by an average of three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Boost your property worth

Numerous studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups 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, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer buying choices, producing goodwill and enhancing business results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.

Many property owners choose to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy business are infamous for their changing and unreliable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Should Nuclear Power Plants Be Included In Renewable Energy Subsidies Put In Place To Stop Global Warming?
In Illinois They Are Arguing That Without Subsidies The Plants Will Be Closed And Replaced By Co2 Emitting Natural Gas And Coal Plants. Http://Www.Citylab.Com/Politics/2016/05/Illinois-Exelon-Nuclear-Power-Plants-Renewable-Energy-Portfolio/484046/

<<Should nuclear plants, by virtue of being carbon-free, be grouped in with solar, wind, and other renewable energy sources in state initiatives to clean up the grid?>>

There is a certain fairness that one group be treated equally under the law. Nuclear is a good viable technology that shouldn't be discounted simply because Jane Fonda made a fictional movie once. I'm not a big fan of any subsidized industries but nuclear makes more sense than other solutions that get taxpayer funds.

Can Solar Panels Provide Enough Energy To Power A Tesla Roadster?

If you mean can I put solar panels on the car and make it go, then no. If you mean can I put solar panels on the roof of my house and charge the car, then yes. If you covered the roof of your house with solar cell you could get up to 50 miles a day with the power you would produce.

How Solar Energy Transforms Into Electricity?
Im Trying To Find Info On How The Suns Rays Turns Into Electricity? And I Need Really Good Details!!!! Please?...

To really understand it you need quantum physics. Sorry about that!

Here's a copy/paste from an earlier answer I gave:




Solar cells consist of two semiconductors stuck together.

Silicon has 4 outer electrons so forms 4 bonds. If you put a tiny bit of something with 3 outer electrons in one block of Si, then that will be missing a bond.

If you put a tiny bit of something with 5 outer electrons in another block of Si then that will form 4 bonds and it turns out the thermal energy at room temperature is enough to 'exite' the spare electron into the conduction band so it can move around.

You bring the two blocks into contact and the excited electrons flow from one block to the other. Remember the first one had some stuff with only 3 outer electrons in? Well, it wants to fit in with teh rest of the Si, so it needs 4 electrons. That's where those spare ones go.

You've taken electrons from one block and put it in the other - you've moved charge, which creates a voltage/electric field.

If you shine light on the semiconductor, the light is absorbed by electrons which use the energy to get up into the conduction band. Now that you have an electric field, this will push them in one direction. Electrons moving in one direction is a current!

That's how you convert light to electricity.
