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

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a company or property owner with changing capital, going solar also assists you much better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Boost your home value

Numerous studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.

Numerous property owners select to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Choose A Solar Powered Water Feature?
I'M Looking To See The Advantages Of A Solar Powered Water Feature Compared To A Normal Mains Powered One. What Are The Differences And Are There Any Real Benefits?

Instead of an electricity supply, solar powered water features use photo-voltaic panels to generate low-voltage electricity from the sun’s rays. The power generated should be enough to power a pump for a waterfall or a self-contained feature.

Solar-powered water features allow you to place a water feature anywhere in your garden or yard or even on your balcony, as long as the solar panels can be positioned to catch the sunlight.

The solar panel can either be incorporated into the water feature itself or have a separate, remote panel which is connected by a wire and can be fastened to a wall or fence to allow for best positioning in the sunlight.

A solar-powered fountain in a bird bath is a great way to attract birds to your garden and gives them clean drinking water and a place to splash about though you will need to add fresh water regularly.

A useful safety feature to look out for is cut-off switch that will turn the pump off if all the water in the reservoir evaporates or escapes due to a leak.

Solar-powered water features are generally quick and easy to install and provide an environmentally friendly way improve your outdoor living space.

How Solar Panel Works ?
How Does Solar Panel Make Electricity ?

when sunlight hits a solar panel the photons from the light hit a layer in panel that converts it into electrons through conduction, thus making electricity

Which Is The Best Stock In The Solar Industries ?
For Investments In Solar Stocks Which Are The Best In The World ?

Hands Down the best solar company is the world is First Solar (FSLR), they have projects all over the world in many different counties including a new large Solar Panel Project in China. Also, another company that is a good solar company is Suntech Power (STP). Hope that helps.

New Building Codes To Promote Solar Panel Installation On Private Homes?

Yes? Might be a good idea. But at some point the local power company is going to be in trouble because they're expected to supply power when your solar panel isn't working - and then BUY excess power from the solar collector.

And at some point, the power company will go out of business...... So this issue will have be addressed.

Also........... you know that any day, any year, now there's going to be a breakthrough in solar collectors. So if you put a boatload of money into solar collectors and then three weeks later they invent one which gathers 5 times more power, you're going to cuss yourself for having jumped the gun. This is why a lot of people hold off getting these things. There's a LOT of inventions yet to come in this field. Right now solar collectors aren't that efficient.

Why Solar Panel Are So Expensive?, Low Demand?
In 1960 The Production Cost Of Ic (Integrated Circuits) Was $1000/Ic, Now The Cost Are Cents Or Less Because The High Demand And The Improvement Of The Production Process. At That Time The Only Demand For Ics Was Military And Space Programs. Are There People Interested In Not Promoting The Demand And/Or Production Improvement Of Solar Panels (Oil, Car Companies) Or It Is Only A Technological Issue?

In 1960, $1000 may not even have bought 1 watt of solar cells, but today, 1 watt (a fraction of a cell) costs about $4. So prices have come down.

The difference between solar panels and IC's are that solar panels have a lot of raw material, and IC's have very little. The material cost (not counting processing) of an IC may be just a few cents, but a solar panel has a significant amount of silicon, not to mention an aluminum frame, and hermetically sealed low-iron glass. So a solar panel can never be 25 cents, any more than a double-pane glass window can be 25 cents.

That said, I think panel prices will drop some 20-25 percent in 2009.
