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 house owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, many property owners find that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower or perhaps remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Make a great return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, residential electrical power rates have actually increased by approximately three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home worth

Multiple studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase 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 create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will remove three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer buying choices, producing goodwill and improving business results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility business are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Solar Air Conditioner Operates?
I Am Planning To Install Solar Air Conditioning In My House. But I Really Don'T Have Any Knowledge On It So Can Ant Body Help Me. Is The Solar Air Conditioning Suitable For House Hold Of Only For Office Use? Any Suggestion Would Be Appreciated.

There several things that are referred to as "solar air conditioning" After all anything we do to the air is "air conditioning" and if it is operated by solar energy it might be considered solar air conditioning.

From ancient times a chimney has been built. As the sun heats the chimney air will travel up the chimney cooler air can be drawn into a house the device is sometimes called a solar chimney. This is sometimes part of a passive solar energy powered home. Other parts of such a home may include earth tubes and thermal mass that will bring night time coolness into daytime temperatures.

Most air conditioners run from electricity. Such units not only cool the air but remove humidity. If the electricity is provided by solar panels then it could be considered "solar air conditioning." As Solar panels naturally output DC electricity some air conditioners are made to operate on DC power and are marketed as solar air conditioners.

Solar thermal panels capture the sun's heat rather than produce electricity. Absorption refrigeration uses different referigents than electric air conditioners. They operate on the same principal as a propane or natural gas powered refridgerator When absorption air conditioners are coupled with thermal solar panels it is known as solar air conditioning.

Green/Environmentalist Jobs For Programmer?
I'M Going To Be Graduating With A Bachelors Degree In Computer Science. In Addition To Really Enjoying Technology, I Feel A Strong Passion For The Environment. What Jobs Can I Apply For That Can Meld The Two?

Some technology companies are really incorporating "green" technology into their offices, data centers, and other facilities. One big one that comes to mind is Google, as they have a whole website solely for the purpose of teaching visitors how they are "green", but there are many smaller technology companies who use green energy as well. You may be able to find a job with one of these companies, not necessarily working in the computer science field, but working as a "green activist" to make the company more environmentally friendly.

You could also explore technology companies who actually build things to support the "green" initiative...I am thinking things like companies that product solar panels, car manufacturers who are currently working on all-electric or hybrid vehicles, companies who are creating technology to conserve water, etc. You may be able to work on the world's newest technology, while doing your own part to support the green initiative in the world.

Who Has Seen T Boone Pickens Energy Plan?
He Says &Quot;I'Ve Been An Oil Man All My Life, But This Is One Emergency We Can'T Drill Our Way Out Of. But If We Create A New Renewable Energy Network, We Can Break Our Addiction To Foreign Oil&Quot;.

People have been driving cars and trucks powered by natural gas for almost 50 years now, yet no one is willing to stand up for this fuel except T. Boone.

Granted that Methane (the primary gas in natural gas) is a bit more hard to contain, but we've been lugging tanks of propane around for decades now in the backs of our wagons and trucks.

The technology is in production. We just need to get real about using it. Honda has a natural gas Civic sedan for sale today. Others have them as options. City fleets including buses run off of it.

And as for solar and wind, ever hear of co-generation? You sell the energy created to industries that are always in need of of electricity and they'll use it for their plants.

People have to stop making excuses and do something now. Anything we can do to end our importation of foreign oil is long overdue.

You may hate the messenger, but T.Boone knows the marketplace. If he makes a profit, more power to him. That's more than what Bush and his supporters have done in 8 years!

Which Energy Source Would Be Best!?
Okay..Final Project....Okay The Question Is..Which Energy Source Would You Prefer In Your Neighborhood:Wind,Nuclear.Or Solar..Be Sure And Think About The Costs,Space,Dangers,And The Like!!.....Okay I Would Pick Wind But I Don'T Know What To Put For All The Other Questions..Help!! Oh And I Live In A Small Town Not Very Big And Its In Texas!So Yeah Please Help!

Solar, it has the least risk and is the least invasive. I have a system on my house now, and you can only see it from the back of the yard.

Please Help Quick Science Question?
How Do They Convert The Solar Energy Into Mechanical Energy In The Solar Car? Please Be Detailed

A solar car is an electric vehicle powered by solar energy obtained from solar panels on the surface of the car. Photovoltaic (PV) cells convert the sun's energy directly into electrical energy. Solar cars are not practical day-to-day transportation devices at present, but are primarily demonstration vehicles and engineering exercises.
