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.

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past ten years, property electrical power prices have increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and handle your costs.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Are Solar Panels Good?

Because in using them, you don't use electricity from the power company. Using their power keeps energy demands up which keeps them to burning fossil fuels and polluting the environment.

Easy 10 Points? Solar Panels And Heaters?
How Do Solar Panels And Heaters Work?

Well ill start with the slorar panels, they work how there are cells in the panel and when the sun shines on it and reflects off the cells and produces energy.
Next the heater is just a plane heater with a object that stores up heat over time when its on and makes it hot and the room and thats amde by a tank or whatever its connected to,to transfer heat

What Does It Mean When A Solar Panel Is 50 Watts?
I Am Looking To Buy A Solar Panel. What Does It Mean When In The Title It Says 200 Watts, Or 50 Watts?

You have to be realistic about the amount of power you can get from a solar panel. Solar panels only produce power when sunlight strikes them. So it's pretty obvious that solar panels don't give you any power at night, and that you aren't going to get as much power in overcast conditions, or when the sun is at an oblique angle to the solar panel, as you do in the middle of a sunny day when the panel is pointing directly at the sun.
Solar panels are rated under standard test conditions. All manufacturers are obliged to use the same conditions for testing, so by comparing the rated output you can compare the performance of different solar panels.

How To Build Solar Panels?
I Would Like To Know How Do You Build A Solar Panel?

There are several types of solar panels. If you mean photovoltaic panels for generating electricity, that is a really advanced project that few amateurs are equipped to do. In the long run, it will be a lot cheaper and easier to buy factory made PV panels.

You can try building one by sandwiching an array of photovoltaic cells between a sheet of glass or plexiglass and a sheet of aluminum. Remember that this assembly must be able to withstand great heat, and it must be sealed to make absolutely sure it does not leak.

So basically, you need to lay out the PV cells and wire them together to get the desired voltage and current, with some arrangement to allow the wires to extend outside without leaking. Then you enclose the panel around all four edges with aluminum channel and seal with silicone sealer. Lay it on thick and test thoroughly with water hoses to eliminate all leaks.

As mentioned, it's easier and cheaper to buy them factory made.

If you mean a heat collector for a solar house heating system or hot water system, that is just a matter of building a thin, flat aluminum box with a glass lid. For hot air, you just need to circulate the air through the box when the sun is shining. For water, you need to have some arrangement to pass the water through the compartment in thin walled metal tubing. You won't be surprised when I say it's cheaper to buy one factory made.

Good luck.

How To Build Solar Panels? I Want To Know Everything And Want To Build A Solar Panel On.?

Hi Fred..This is a guide on how to make your own solar panels

1. Use the sandpaper to scour clean every portion of the copper of one of the sheets. There can be absolutely no corrosion on the copper for this procedure. Then wash the copper sheeting with soap, water, and either paper towels or a sponge. You can't let oil from your hands get on the copper.

2. Towel the copper dry, taking care not to touch it directly. Use your tongs to place the copper on the hot plate. Turn the hotplate on as hot as it will go.

3. Cook the copper at red hot heats for half an hour. A thick black layer of oxides should form on the copper's surface.

4. The oxide layer and the copper underneath cool at different speeds, causing the two to separate. This can be violent and send hot cupric oxide flying, so be careful no to get to close or leave anything particularly flammable nearby. it should take another twenty minutes to cool to room temperature.
