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 property owner to use the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, washing clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of property owners discover that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically lower or perhaps remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity rates have gone up by approximately three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or house owner with changing money flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home worth

Numerous studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home values and sell more quickly 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 property buyers become 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 attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent method to reduce 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 typical property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer getting choices, creating goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.

Many property owners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely 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 Investment

The energy companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate just how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Implications Of Requiring Builders And Designers Of New Buildings To Install Solar Panels?

Short run: the price of a house will increase an may out price some people trying to buy houses. The price of solar panel and installing them on existing building will increase perhaps out pricing some who want to install them.
Long run: decrease energy consumption and lowering the price of energy compared to what it would have been without the regulation. May spur investment in panel production and technology lowering LR cost of installation perhaps leading to more existing building having panels but farther out in the future. May pull investment from other alternative energy sources slowing technological advancements in them.

A Few Questions For Someone Who Knows Much About Solar Panels?
I Have Been Looking Into Solar Panels For A Small House That I Am Building. It Would Be Great If I Could Nix A Furnace, And Use Solar Panels To Heat The House With Electric. The House Is Going To Be Less Than 1000 Square Feet. I Have Tried Looking On Google But Did Not Find Much. I Am In Canada. Here Is What I Am Looking For - How Much Do You Think I Can Expect To Spend On Solar Panels? - How Long Do They Last? - Would They Eliminate An Electricity Bill All Together?

Hi this is just my personal opinion but I think that currently solar panels are not advanced enough to really do any good. In the future maybe but right now I don't see you really saving anything. The only reason why you would use solar is to help the environment. The initial cost of getting all the equipment is going to be so much that it will take years to pay for itself. Then when it does pay for itself some parts will need to be replaced costing more money. Right now I don't think it's a good idea. But maybe in the future. Again this is just my opinion.

How Do You Get Electricity In A Rainy Day If You Have Solar Panels?
I Am Working On A Project And I Have To Build A House With Solar Panels. My Teacher Asked Me How Would I Get Solar Energy If It Is Rainy Or Cloudy? I Looked It Up But Didn'T Understand. Please Help Me!!

Solar panels convert light energy into electrical energy with the photovoltaic process. They work best when perpendicular to the incoming sunlight and with no clouds in bright sunlight. They will work at reduced efficiency if there are clouds or rain, but as long as its not dark, they will still produce "some" electricity.

That is one of the real problems with solar energy, as we expect to have electricity available on demand, regardless of day/night cycles and atmospheric conditions. Storing electricity is very inefficient, so we need hydro, nuclear,or fossil fuel energy to provide firm "on demand" energy as a base load.

If Solar Panels Are So Good, Why Do We Sell Them To Silly Americans While Building Coal Plants For Ourselves?

If the argument is that the Solyndra loan was oversold as a job creation engine, maybe that’s true. But that’s not the argument that conservatives want to make. They want to claim that green energy investments must be ended because they cannot possibly work. With a perspective like that, obviously so. But the truth is that the Solyndra bankruptcy represents 1.3% of the total green energy loans put out by the Energy Department. Solar energy, far from being doomed, is booming, and solar PV was even a net exporter to China last year. If there were a level playing field and China wasn’t subsidizing it’s solar industry across platforms at 20 times the level of the US, or if the US met that challenge with a similar level of investment, it wouldn’t be a contest. But there’s still plenty of room for a solar and greentech space in the US, regardless of one company’s troubles.

Net exporter? Yeah!

Does The Heat Bounce Back From Solar Panel? Will It Create More Global Warming If All Roofs Are Solar Paneled?
Imagine If You Put A Mirror Under The Sun, It Heats Up And The Light Is Reflected Back. How Is Solar Panel Different From This Concept? Does It Uses A Special Material So The Heat Will Not Bounce Back To The Atmosphere And Make Our Earth More Warmer Causing More Global Warming And Helping To Melt Down The Iceberg In North And South Pole? Are You A Genius? Answer My Question :P....

don k is right. except solar thermal panels absorb heat to, of course, to heat water. to even think that solar panels heat up so much to attribute to global warming has to be the most idoitic, clueless question i have ever read. we are all dumber to have read it. does your hot breath cause global warming? It gets hot under your arm pits and behind your legs, must be melting ice bergs with that body heat, right?
