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 home owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous property owners discover that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically lower and even remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a large portion of your regular monthly costs.

Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn a great return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past ten years, property electrical power costs have actually increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Multiple research studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for properties geared up 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 element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that select to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.

#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 money down.

Lots of property owners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electricity-- 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 Financial investment

The energy companies are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Sun'S Energy??? Where Does The Sun'S Energy Comes From?
Where Doe

Energy production

The energy of the Sun is produced by the conversion of hydrogen into helium. For each hydrogen atom converted, one neutrino is produced. These neutrinos are detected, but less than the expected number. See also Neutrino; Solar neutrinos.

The material at the center of the Sun is so dense that a few millimeters are opaque, so the photons created by nuclear reactions are continually absorbed and reemitted and thus make their way to the surface by a random walk. The atoms in the center of the Sun are entirely stripped of their electrons by the high temperatures, and most of the absorption is by continuum processes, such as the scattering of light by electrons. Because there are so many absorption and emission processes along the way, it can take as long as a million years to complete the random walk to the surface.

What Will Solar Energy Do To Greenhouse Gases?
Titleeee.(:

Solar energy warms the earth through green house gases.
This is commonly referred to in mass media as global warming.
The theory is that the energy from the sun passes through the green house gases to reach the earth. The planet usually reflects much of this back into space at a lower frequency (infrared). This lower frequency does not pass through those gases as easily and may become trapped. This trapped energy becomes heat.

What Are Sunspots And How Do They Affect Earth?

Definitions
Relatively cooler areas on the sun's surfaces. They represent regions of extremely high magnetic field.
www.kxxv.com/Global/story.asp

appear as dark spots on the Sun, and are believed to be cooler than the rest of the Sun. They appear in 11-year cycles.
www.factmonster.com/ipka/A0774869.html

Temporary areas of concentrated magnetic field on the sun, where convection of hot matter from the sun's core is inhibited, resulting in a cooler, darker area on the photosphere of the sun. (go to where the term first appears in the text).
www.exploratorium.edu/sunspots/glossar...

When the Sun is viewed through a solar telescope dark spots can be observed on the surface. These are called sunspots. They appear dark to the eye because they are cooler than the surrounding gas although they are still quite hot!
ds9.ssl.berkeley.edu/solarweek/glossar...


Effects on Earth
Sunspots are actually the harbingers of magnetic activity on the Sun which can accelerate particles near the Sun to high energies, and eject them during flare events and Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs). It is the CME events, most common when sunspots are in evidence, which travel to Earth in a few days and can interfere with the terrestrial plasma environment, causing magnetic sub-storms, auroral activity, and influence everything from telecommunications to the electrical power grid.

Also, there seems to be a correlation between years of enhanced solar activity (heightened sunspot numbers) and the severity of weather systems in the northern hemisphere. No one really understands what the connection is.

The easiest, and most developed would be to use batteries. This seems particularly appropriate for wind and solar as they are generally used to generate electricity.

What Is The Difference Between The Use Of Traditional Fengshui And Western?
I Am Doing A Research Work By My University From Sinology. And I Would Really Use Some Information. I Gotta Write How Chinese People Use It, And How The Abroad (Others). And If Chinese Have Something Against The Western Interpretation(Commercialized Fengshui). And If Chinese Who Live In Foreign Countries Use It To. Additional Details Are All Chinese Using Fengshui? It Is Exactly Like The Manual Books Describes? Because There Was A Difference From Fengshui In 19.St And Today? And There Is Another Difference Between In Small Villages Or In Metropolis Like Singapore, Hong Kong. If You Know Something I Would Appreciated!

Traditional Feng Shui relies upon the compass to give accurate readings. However, critics point out that the compass degrees are often inaccurate as fluctuations caused by solar winds have the ability to greatly disturb the electromagnetic field of the earth. Determining a property or site location based upon Magnetic North will result in inaccuracies because true magnetic north fluctuates.

Modern feng shui is not always looked at as a superstitious scam. Many people[who?] believe it is important and very helpful in living a prosperous and healthy life. It can help by either avoiding bad chi flow or deflecting negative energy that might otherwise have harmful or detrimental effects[citation needed]. Many of the higher-level forms of feng shui are not easily practiced without having connections in the community or a certain amount of wealth because hiring an expert, altering architecture or design, and moving from place to place requires a significant financial output. This leads some people of the lower classes to lose faith in feng shui, saying that it is only a game for the wealthy. Others, however, practice less expensive forms of feng shui, including hanging special (but cheap) mirrors, forks, or woks in doorways to deflect negative energy.

Feng shui is so important to some people[who?] that they use it for healing purposes (although there is no empirical evidence that this practice is in any way effective) in addition to guide their businesses and create a peaceful atmosphere in their homes. In 2005, even Disney acknowledged feng shui as an important part of Chinese culture by shifting the main gate to Hong Kong Disneyland by twelve degrees in their building plans, among many other actions suggested by the master planner of architecture and design at Walt Disney Imagineering, Wing Chao, in an effort to incorporate local culture into the theme park.

Currently, one of the best known feng shui users is real estate mogul Donald Trump. After losing Asian clients a few years ago due to his properties' apparently bad feng shui, he hired a feng shui master to analyze Trump Towers. At Singapore Polytechnic and other institutions like the New York College of Health Professions, many students (including engineers and interior designers) take courses on feng shui every year and go on to become feng shui (or geomancy) consultants.When the principles are appropriately applied, feng shui has been seen to elicit the profound experience of magic, mystery, and order in American life.

Master Aaron Lee Koch of New York, USA, established the Feng Shui Excellence Award, the first award for the achievement of outstanding feng shui. The Feng Shui Excellence Award is awarded to home and business owners that have achieved a high level of feng shui excellence and have experienced the results of the changes they have made.

Have a pleasant day.
