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 resident to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous home owners find that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly lower or perhaps eliminate your electrical bills

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic 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 lot of cash.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense savings, the average American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, residential electricity prices have actually increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or house owner with fluctuating cash circulation, going solar also helps you better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home worth

Several studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties geared up with solar 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 accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a great way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and improving business outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.

Many house owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility business are notorious for their varying and undependable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Financing

Frequently Asked Questions

If I Get A Mirror And Point It At A Solar Panel, Will It Generate More Electricity?
Just Wonderin'

Sort of. If you have the solar panel in the sun, and use a mirror to reflect more sun onto the panel, it will generally put out more power.

This idea has been around for decades, but it's hard to make it practical. The main drawbacks as I remember them are

1) Heat is a problem. The solar cells have to get rid of the heat, or they will go bad. They will also not be as efficient at high temperatures.

2) When the sun moves, the spot of light from the mirror moves. So a mirror-type system usually needs a motor to make the system track the sun across the sky.

3) Panels are so cheap now, it's simpler, cheaper, and more reliable just to have more panels, than to try to do a mirror arrangement.

How Do We Stop Global Warming?
I'M A Skeptic And It Seems To Me When Ever I Hear A Method Of Stopping Global Warming It Usually Ends With Sign Here And I'Ll Need Your Credit Card Details. What Do You Get With That Purchase Is Something Very Close To Useless And Very Inefficiant, But Hey It Claims To Help Global Warming. Hybrid Cars Oh Yes I'D Love To Buy A 50 Thousand Dollar Sedan I Could Of Easily Gotten For Half That. Solar Panels Ohh Yes I'D Love To Save 50 Cents Of My Next Electricity Bill At The Cost Of 2-5 Grand Up Front! Don'T Worry It Pays Itself Off In......*Cough*60-100 Years Now Some Of These Points Are A Littlebit Exagerated But Proves The Point That Some Methods Of Stopping Global Warming Seems To Be A Bit Suspicious!

Why stop it. If global warming ends, we all die.

there is no controlling the climate. Heck, we can not even control daily weather. As far as buying "Green" products, I do when it makes financial sense. For example, I bought a low water use washer because in about 4 years it should pay for itself. As for the new light bulbs at 4 times the price, hell no. I would buy a hybrid IF they had a style I liked and it was not $4,000 to 5,000 more than a regular one.

Let's do the math on this one. Average person (me) drive 12,000 miles per year. My current car gets about 20 MPG city/highway. The Camry Hybrid (most similar to my car) get around 34 MPG highway/city. So for my car, I will buy about 600 gallons of gas vs 353 for the Camry. At $4.00 per gallon, the Camry saves me about $988 dollars per year. This is pretty good since I tend to keep my car about 5 years. So in that 5 years I save a total of $4,940. Which means if I spent an extra $5,000 for it, it would never pay for itself. However, it looks like the Camry hybrid is about $4,000 more so it may pay to get it. BUT, we can not forget about the time value of money. Being that I spend an extra $4,000 today, I do not have this money available to invest. If I take that $4,000 and earn only 4% interest over 5 years, I get $800 in interest. Also, we would need to look at the actual loan value on the car since you would be paying interest on the additional $4,000. Over 60 months we would pay an additional $740 dollars just in interest on the car loan (60 months, $4,000, 6.94%, pmts = 79.09, times 60 months = $4,745 minus $4,000 for car = $745).

In conclusion, this car will never pay for itself in 5 years given the above scenario. When the price comes down, or gas goes up (which it is) the case may change. But for me, it still goes to teh crappy styling of the hybrids.

How Does Taxes Work On Solar Panels?
Like You Have Sales Tax When You Buy It. But Once You Own It And Use It Make Power Without Being On The Power Grid. How Does Taxes Work On It? Do You Have To Report To The Irs How Many Kwh'S It Made Or Something?

Many states don't charge sales tax on solar equipment for your own house. If yours does, some web based companies don't charge you taxes unless they have an office in your state.

If you are off-grid, it's nobody's business how much power you make, there is no tax on generating your own power.

Many states have a law that says you cannot have your property taxes go up (at least for 10 years in some states) if your property value goes up due to adding solar.

So, the answer really depends on what state you live in, and who you buy it from.

Having Solar Panels At Home, Is There Anybody Who Can Help Me With Energy Laws In Florida?
I'M Moving To Florida Next Week, And I Have Read On Internet, Some Electricity Companies There Can Detect When Energy Is Being Used Or Not, We Are A Couple And Know How To Operate Electricity But We Do Not Know Too Much About Laws In Florida , Could Anybody Help Us , Please...

I'm not sure what information you are looking for. DSIRE has a database of all of the rebates, incentives, and regulations around renewable energy, maybe what you are looking for can be found here, http://www.dsireusa.org/incentives/index...

If you are installing solar on your house, and tying it to the electric grid, you must sign a Net metering and interconnection agreement with the electric company. This allows you to sell any extra power you generate during the day back to the electric company. You would arrange that with the electric company itself.

2 Questions On Solar Panels?
How Much Energy Does 1 Solar Panel Produce, And How Long Can Solar Panels Go Without Maintenance.

Solar panels are available in a wide variety of power ratings.  Energy is the sum of power over time, so how much energy a panel produces depends on the intensity of the light hitting it and how long it's applied.

I understand that current single-crystal silicon PV panels are warranted to produce ~85% of their rated output for 25 years.  Most will do better, and will produce useful output for perhaps 50 years or more.
