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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, lots of residents find that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower and even remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a big part of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, property electricity prices have increased by an average of three percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Numerous research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need 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 accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks 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 growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common domestic solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are crucial elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that pick to run properly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer buying decisions, developing goodwill and improving service results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility business are infamous for their changing and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Gear Do You Need To Survive The Zombie Apocalypse?
Weaponry - Bats, Guns, War Hammers, Katana Body Armor Wilderness Survival Gear Food... Ar15outfitters.Com Has Some Awesome Zombie Apocalypse Survival Gear... Just Looking For More Like That

Karabiner 98k, or the trench assault modified Mauser 98 which had a 20 round magazine. I have the basic modified Karabiner. For close combat, I have a few cricket bats and a 22. magnum pistol.

My German Wehrmacht field soldat uniform, lightweight and manoeuvrable. It's all replicated by to great extent. I used to be a apart of a live action role play group, the only hindrance is Fascist boots aren't the best for running in. Standing is comfortable as is walking, but if you're going to move out, I say running shoes.


My house, my partner doesn't know it but I designed the house to be perfect in the defence of a Zombie Apocalypse. I've got a small fence which wouldn't hold them back for long, but I did spend every weekend for 6 months building 10 feet high cinder block walls on the sides of my house it's self contained, and the only entry points are the windows, and four doors, two of which would allow the walkers to get behind the 10ft walls and into my patio.
that being said, I keep 20 bags of concrete in my shed to pile against that door, at 20KG each and the narrow space, it's an immobile defence.
All of my windows have lockout shutters, shatter-proof glass with steel fittings and bars. only exception is the small window in my single toilets. My roof is colour bond steel or iron, unsure which, but it's stronger than tiles! I also have solar panels because they can power your house.

In my basement I have my weapon safe and as it is right now, about 4000 rounds of ammunition for my rifle alone. I have about 30 of those water things that hold about 15 litres each, but no cooler, it'd be too energy dependant. I also have at least 6 months worth of food. mostly canned so rodents can't get into it unless they're determined. in my yard I have two rain water tanks, and a vegetable patch, that's behind my patio defence but if my neighbours died the fenceing wouldn't hold them back for more than a month.

Yes, I'm being serious

What Is The Configuration Of Solar Panel Needed To Run An Air-Conditioner Of 440?
Im Designing Solar Panel For An Air-Conditioner With A Rating Of 440V 100A.Please Help Me Design The Solar Panel To Be Mounted And The Type Of Battery To Be Used For Charging

To put it simply, that's going to take a lot of power.

I'd say this would cost upwards of atleast $900,000. You are implying that you need enough solar panels for 44,000 watts of electricity and I believe solar panels only product a small fraction per square foot of that.

In the end, I suggest getting a smaller air conditioner, using hybrid 50/50 technology or becoming a scientist and coming up to a solution for AIDS.

All in all, good luck!

How Does A Cell Compare To A Car?(Cell Analogy Project)?
I Am In Dire Need Of An Analogy Comparing Ribosomes, Mitochondria, Vacuole, Golgi Apparatus And Chloroplast To Car Parts...I Don'T Know Much About Cars. Best Answer Goes To The Most Detailed Answer And Best Analogies...But, Any Help Would Be Nice. Thanks!

The nucleus can be compared to the driver because it controls what the cell does like the driver controls the car. The cell membrane is like the outer shell of the vehicle because it supports and protects the cell like the outer shell of a car does. The endoplasmic reticulum is like all the wires and pipes in a car which carry materials. Cytoplasm is sort of like the frame of the car because it supports everything inside. The mitochondria can be compared to the engine of the car because it converts sugar to energy like the engine converts gasoline to energy. Any storage compartments and the trunk are like vacuoles because they store things. I am not sure about the lysosomes. If you had a solar powered car the solar panel could be compared to the chloroplast.

Where Should I Start Researching To Buy A Solar Panel?
I Live In New Jersey And I'm Looking To Buy A Solar Panel For My Roof. I Know They Are Expensive And Range From 15-30 Thousand Dollars. Where Should I Start Researching For One?

First you should start with your planning commission to find out if they allow solar panels, strange as it seems some do not.
next an on line search will give you contractors in your area.

This should get you started, you might also ask about available rebates, and an expandable system, if you decide to start with a system below your needs and increase it later.

Does The Us Government Want To Destroy You? Do You Agree?
What If I Told You There Was A Way To Never Pay For Hydro And For Gasoline To Cost 1/4 Of What It Is Now... This New Wave Would Bring In Over 100 Billion In Revenue And Deter Over 100 Billion Of Tax Payers Money... Between 250-500 Billion Dollars Here We Are Talking About Which Could Go To Free Health Care And Putting Solar Panels And Wind Power And Research Into Underwater Turbines And Other Projects... This Would Give Us Easily Over 1 Million New Jobs And Would Give Us Fuel, Clothing, Food Exports And Would Produce Oxygen From The Co We Let Out. The Only Reason Why We Do Not Have This Implemented Is For One Good Reason... It Would Cause People To Think And Make Us Not Want To Fight In Wars Or With Each Other... I'm Talking About The Legalization, Selling, And Taxation Of Marijuana And Hemp! Do You Agree That The Only Reason Its Not Legal In The United States Is Because They Want To Destroy Us? Proven: Marijuana, As Long As Periods Of Oxygen Occur Between Tokes, Does Not Destroy Brain Cells Proven: Marijuana Has 0 Deaths In Its Name In Human History... Even Coffee Kills Thousands Every Year. Proven: Marijuana Is Proven To Be The Most Wide-Spreed Effective Medicine For Many Different Alliments. Including Aids And Cancer But There Are Hundreds More. So Why Else Aside For Wanting Us To Fight, Make The #1 Profitable Business In America Which Is Pharmicuticals Even More Profitable, And Not Think About The World Around Us Would The Government Make This Medicine Illegal?
