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 everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. 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 considerable, many homeowners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the average American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power costs have gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're a service or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and handle your expenditures.

Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in international energy markets.

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

Lots of house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

As of 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 varying and undependable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

I'Ve Got A Variety Of Alternatives To Get My Electric Bill Down: Replacement My 10 Year Old Fairly Ineffeicient Central Ac Units (We Have 2) With A High Seer Unit In The 13 To 17 Range. Possibly Have Solar Panels For Electricity Installed On The Roof. Get A Geothermal Unit Drilled Vertically Into Our Yard For Heat And Ac. I Can Only Afford To Do One. Which Probably Will Return The Most 'Bang For The Buck' Fastest?

Research; "energy envelope", air penetration mitigation, check your current level of insulation and look into beefing that up, new windows in older homes can save more too... just going out and buying the latest and greatest won't be your best solution with out looking into some of these other things that are so basic many people over look them!

Now that you've done all that you can to SAVE energy, look into the alternatives for generating power and or geothermal for heating and cooling. These are 2 different issues... does that make sense?

You don't have to go out and buy a new home, fix the one you have! There is lots of great info out there, look at case studies that fit your situation and do what they have done...

Can Solar Energy Generate Electricity In A Home Alone? What Is Needed?.?
How Can I Install Solar Energy In A New Home In A Rural Area What Do I Need, Cost , Equipments Etc? I Am Building A New Home In A Rural Area In Africa Where Electricity Is Not Constant And I Would Like To Use Solar Energy Alone Or With Electricity(Whenever It Is Available) Is It Possible? It Sometimes Rain Alot In Some Months- Will Rain Be A Problem Eventhough It Is Generally Hot Most Of The Time.

Depending on locality, a windmill or water power (close to a stream) may be your best, most cost effective solution. ~
Solar cells only work during the day, and would need more storage (batteries) than the other sources. On cloudy days your power production will drop quite a bit.
You'll also need electronic control equipment to give you the voltage and frequency (50HZ or 60Hz) needed by most equipment.
I recently check and found solar cells with 2.5KW capacity for about $7,500 which was low compared with what most places charge.

How To Get Solar Panel Energy Through A Fabric Material?
How To Get Solar Panel Energy Through A Fabric Material? Help Help? Ok So I Am In Need Of Professional Assistance With This. How Would You Get Solar Panel Energy Through A Fabric And Light A Bulb Without Cutting Or Altering The Fabric At Allcould You Have The Lines Soldered To Contact Points On Each Side And When The Contact Points From Each Side Meet The Energy Passes Through The Fabric? Or Would There Be A Fire Hazard With That? Please Give Me An Insight To Ths Dilemma I Have? Thanks!!!

You are talking nonsense. "Energy" doesn't mean anything. Fabric does not belong anywhere near a solar panel. If you want to hook a solar panel to a light bulb you just have to learn the business, because there a lot of things you have to know. It is not a simple process.

Yes, a fabric is a fire hazard no matter what you do.

Are The Uses Of Solar Energy Environmentally Friendly? ?
Please Include Sources If Any

It depends, the true solar energy is light and heat from the sun, those can be used without a negative environmental impact. If you car talking about using the sun to create electricity, there is a negative impact. However, I would say it is no worse than our current method of creating electricity. I would say other than the initial manufacturing of the solar panels, the impact is far less than continuing to use fossil fuels, which also had a similar impact when their plants were manufactured.

Geothermal Energy System?
I Am Renovating My House And Plan To Get Geothermal Energy System. I Plan To Use It To Generate Electric And Heating. I Have Done Lots Of Resources But I Still Could Not Find How Much Energy Can It Generate In A Month. For Example I Have An Expensive Solar Panel And It Produces Around 550 Kwh Per Month. I Could Not Find Any Information How Much Energy Can Geothermal System Produce. Can You Give Me Some Information With Feedbacks. Thanks A Lot.

You won't be generating electricity from a heat pump. You can get hot water for showers and washing from some units, but not electricity.

The heat pumps are sized by "BTU's" in the US as well as the size of the ground loop field. A competent installer should be able to tell you how they sized the unit for your home. It is not uncommon for different installers to use different criteria for sizing a system for your home.
