"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).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Do Solar Energy Panels Cost?
My Husband Is Interested In Buying Solar Panels For The Roof And I Dont Know Where To Find Them.

Buying solar panels can be very expensive, especially for installation.

If your average daily usage is 6.6 kilowatt per hour, then you would need a 2 kilowatt system that could generate ten kilowatts per hour in a day. This system could cost between $10,000 to $20,000. Of course, the higher wattage, the higher the cost.

There are some alternatives to spending thousands of dollars on solar panels.

1) Buy several solar panel kits and link them together yourself.
2) Combine solar with wind power to decrease the number of panels you will need.
3) Build your own solar panels for around $200 each.

If you are handy with some basic soldering, then you can make your own solar panels.

Which Solar Panel Should I Choose?
Hello, I Am Shopping For Solar Panels For My Home And There Are So Many To Choose From. My House Uses 40 Kw Of Power A Day. If You Had To Choose From The Output Power Of A Solar Panel From Below, Which One Would You Choose And Why Would You Choose It? 12 Volts 4 Amps 48Watts 12 Volts 8.5 Amps 102Watts 16 Volts 7 Amps 112Watts 24 Volts 4.2 Amps 100.8Watts 24 Volts 8 Amps 195Watts

The most energy effiecient PV cell in Australia at the moment is from "First Solar" they generate the most electricity compared to all units in Australia by an additional 6%. Not much but everything counts these days, especially with prices increasing over the next thress years (even without the CPRS) projections are (by IPART, who are the regulators that sets the electricity prices) rises by 46% (thats by Country Energy) and with the CPRS it was going to reach a 64% increase. The First Solar PV cells will give you a return on investment of around 2.75 years and generate electricity for 25 years (after 20 years they still generate Approx. 85% efficiency - best in market, I know I have been researching them for ages, and these are the ones I am installing !!!. Hope this helps. You need to choose a 1.5kW system, this will generate Approx $1380pa

Hi Trying To Learn More About Solar Panels!?
I Know That The Solar Panels Store The Power From The Sun In The Daytime, Where Does That Stored Energy Go From There? Is It Stored In The Batteries? And How Would You Keep The Batteries Topped Up If You Had No Electric? By A Generator? Interested In Solar Panels For Abroad, But Need More Info.

Solar panels do not store power. Solar panels convert sunlight into electricity. To store power you need batteries. The usual type of batteries used are lead-acid deep discharge( similar to car batteries). The batteries are charged up during the time the sun is out. However, as a backup you could also have a generator handy to provide power for times when the sun did not shine enough to keep the batteries charged up.

What Are The Different Uses For A Solar Panel?

There are many different uses for solar power. However, there are really two core uses that supply all the other more specific ones.
1. Solar panels produce electricity
2. Solar panels heat water (or glycol which ultimately heats water).

Everything else more or less starts with the above. Producing electricity can supplement power to a home through a net metering agreement with the utility (very popular today), can store power in a battery for use at night, or can power loads directly without batteries or grid power (like an attic fan).
There are other creative things you can do with the electric, but I just covered the 3 most basic ones.
Solar panels that heat water (Solar Thermal Collectors) can be used to heat domestic water, in floor heat, pools, and many other things.
The technology for solar electric panels and solar thermal panels are very different. To illustrate, Solar electric panels produce power from light from the sun, and actually perform better in cold temperatures. Solar Thermal panels heat water by trapping the suns heat, and therefore work better in hotter temperatures.

Check out our company website and contact us to learn more. We have done numerous systems with both technologies.

Which Solar Panels Are Better, Amorphous Vs Polycrystalline. Whats Is The Pro'S And Con'S?

Amorphous panels tend to be less efficient, cheaper, and can be flexible (depending on the backing material). I'm not sure if there are many rigid amorphous panels available nowadays

In most situations the choice will come down to cost, so I wold go for the cheapest.
Less efficient panels however will mean a larger area of panel for the same output so mounting may be more difficult.
