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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many residents discover that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically minimize and even remove your electric bills

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still conserve a lot of money.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy rates have actually gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your expenses.

#4 Increase your property value

Numerous research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers 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 self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend 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 fantastic way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common residential solar panel system will remove 3 to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that choose to operate properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer buying choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy business are notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most notably, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Do Plants Use - Light Energy Or Solar Energy?
I Have A Test Tomorrow And This Question Came In My Mind Because Most Of The Books Say It About Solar Energy But There Are Many Who Say It As Light Energy Also. Even Wikipedia Has It That The Chlorophyll Uses The Light Energy And I Found No Mention Of Solar Energy In It. Help Please!!!

The sun radiates all of the electromagnetic spectrum from cosmic rays to radio waves.[a range of wavelengths ]

Light is part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Heat or infrared is also part of the EMS, as we can feel in the sunlight. The ultraviolet causes our sunburn.

Plants use a certain set of wavelengths of light.

How Can I Create Solar Energy For My Home?
I Am Really Interested In How I Could Use Solar Energy To Power Certain Parts Of My House. Or Any Other Types Of Energy. How Could I Do This And Do I Need Any Special Technical Skills To Do This?

There are a couple of ways to use solar to reduce the amount of power you buy.

1) Solar water heating. Solar water heating uses the heat of the sun to preheat your water. As hot water can be up to 1/3 of you power bills, using solar to heat up to 75% of it can greatly reduce your bills. It is the most efficient use of solar for a homeowner

2) Solar electricity. Solar electric panels can be installed and connected to the electric grid. You don't have to generate all of the electricity you use, you just make what you can, and buy the rest from the electric company as usual. If you make more than you need during the day, you sell any extra to the electric company, then buy all you need at night. This way you don't need to deal with batteries.

Both options qualify for a 30% tax credit from the USA federal gov't, and most states offer additional incentives.

Sources For The Benefits (Economic And Social) Of Wind And Solar Energy?
I'M Writing A Paper On The Benefits Of Wind And Solar Energy, In Both An Economic And Social Context. Though I Appreciate Your Personal Opinion On Its Benefits, I Would Really Appreciate Some Possible Sources To Give Me A Start On The Paper. Please Keep In Mind That I Am Not Looking For A Political Discussion Or Opinions, This Is For A Graduate-Level Paper And I Am To Only Write About The Benefits Of Wind And Solar Energy - So Sharing Your Personal Beliefs About The Negative Effects Of Alternative Energy Does Not Interest Me Or Anyone Else And They Will Be Ignored. Thanks!

Benefits of Wind Power

Cup wind anemometer for measuring wind speed. (NREL photo)A wind energy system can provide a cushion against electric power price increases. Wind energy systems help reduce U.S. dependence on fossil fuels; and they are nonpolluting. If you live in a remote location, a small wind energy system could help you avoid the high costs of having utility power lines extended to your site.

Although wind energy systems involve a significant initial investment, they can be competitive with conventional energy sources when you account for a lifetime of reduced or altogether avoided utility costs. The length of the payback period – the time before the savings resulting from your system equal the cost of the system itself – depends on the system you choose, the wind resource on your site, electricity costs in your area, and how you use your wind system.

I Wana To Operate 3 Water Pump With Help Of Operating Watts From Solar Panel And Additional Starting Watts From Battery Is It Possible???

Depends upon the total wattage of the pumps and what your solar panel can supply.

You need to consider the voltage required by the pump.
If the pump operates at 240V and is a 3hp motor then that means that it will consume 2.3kW approx.
Based on this figures the current required by the motor will be 2300/240 Amps, lets say 10 Amp.

The chances are that the battery is 12V and the solar cell output is 12V too. To get 12V up to 240 V you need to use an inverter. The power used by the motor will need to be supplied by he battery at first (just to get it started) and then by the solar cells. For the solar cells to provide 2.3kW at 12V the solar array will need to supply 190 Amps, and that will require a very big solar array and that does not take into account any losses in the invertion process. Even a 12 V accumulator will be drained very quickly if left on too long.

To be honest it all sounds like a non starter.
