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.

"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

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, property electrical power rates have increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your expenditures.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does A Solar Panel Work?
What Are The Items Used For Making It Work. How Is The Solar Energy Converted Into Electrical Energy.

It is due to the photoelectric effect. Electrons are emitted due to energy from the sunlight which is electromagnetic radiation. The electrons flow causing an electric current.

What Are The Negative Effects On The Enviornment By The Solar Energy Devices?

For passive solar energy there are no bad effects.Active solar energy needs to have a manufacturing process and battery's for holding the collective charge.Disposal of used battery's has been a on going problem from automakers to home owners on the grid.

Questions About The Sun (Solar Power)?
What Compounds Are In The Sun? What Mixtures Are Is The Sun? What Chemical Reactions Occur In The Sun?≪How Does It Affect Us? What State Of Matter Is In The Sun Or Solar Power? How Does People Affect Solar Energy? How Does Solar Energy Affect The Enviorment?

I don't think there are any compounds in the sun. Even small molecules would be dissociated at 5770K. The sun is a mixture of elements in the plasma state, mostly hydrogen and helium. The important reactions in the sun are all nuclear reactions because the temperature throughout the sun is too high to allow ionic or covalent chemical bonds to be stable. People use solar energy to heat things, like making hot water, or cooking. Some people shine sunlight on special panels to generate electricity. Solar energy affects the environment by putting energy into the atmosphere and hydrosphere (to make weather) and into the biosphere (to make food).

Can You Replace Normal Batteries In Electrical Alliances Using Solar Energy?
Is It Simple Or Even Possible To Use Solar Panels Or Some Sort To Make Something Like A Gameboy Work Without Its Batteries?
