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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, many homeowners find that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower or perhaps eliminate your electric costs

Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can make up a big part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally 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 costs and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power prices have gone up by approximately three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home or business value

Several research studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped 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 an essential component 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 price variations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect 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 decrease that number. A common domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are necessary components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer getting decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing service results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 well-known for their changing and undependable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Financing

What are the various payment options?

Frequently Asked Questions

Can Someone Pls Tell Me If What Was The Definition Of Solar Energy, It'S Uses And It'S Disadvantages? Pls?
Thank You Very Much!!!

Ignoring the "cut and paste" answers you have above, there are some other things that should be mentioned. Those answers concentrate on solar energy used to heat water. This is fine for hot-water heaters, but there is the problem of what to do at night or on cloudy days. In some parts of the world, you'd only have hot water during the summer with that system.

If you're going to look at solar energy more broadly, you'll have to consider the use of solar cells to convert sunlight into electricity. This has the advantage of being free once the system is in place, which is why it's used so commonly in space. However, there are some problems:

1) Most solar cells use an element called selenium. Selenium is a heavy metal, and so is toxic. If you have a large bank of solar cells (see below) and there's an accident, you could poison quite a large area.

2) The most efficient solar cell I've ever heard of was about 15% efficient. That means that, of every 100 joules coming in as sunlight, you got 15 joules out. Well, sunlight is free (see below), so that isn't a major problem, except for the sheer size of the necessary solar array. To provide for all of the electricity used in the United States, you'd need a solar array covering an area roughly equal to the state of West Virginia. Not only is this a HUGE area, but...

3) There is a sense in which all energy is solar energy. Plants use it to make sugar. Exothermic animals use it to keep their body chemistry running. As a rule, in nature, if there's energy available, something is using it. If we cover (say) West Virginia with solar cells, that's an area that will be effectively dead in very short order. This is perhaps not a good idea.

I Need To Write An Essay On Solar Energy. Will You Help Me?
Im In 8Th Grade And Im Writing An Extra Credit Essay. Can You Give Me Some Simple Links On Solar Energy.

Solar energy is energy from the Sun in the form of radiated heat and light. It drives the climate and weather and supports life on Earth. Solar energy technologies make controlled use of this energy resource.

Solar power is a synonym of solar energy and/or refers specifically to the conversion of sunlight into electricity by photovoltaics, concentrating solar thermal devices or various experimental technologies.

In building design, thermal mass is used to conserve heat, and daylighting techniques optimize light. Solar water heaters heat swimming pools and provide domestic hot water. In agriculture, greenhouses grow specialty crops and photovoltaic-powered pumps bring water to grazing animals. Evaporation ponds find applications in the commercial and industrial sectors where they are used to harvest salt and clean waste streams of contaminants.

Solar distillation and disinfection techniques produce potable water for millions of people worldwide. Family scale solar cookers and larger solar kitchens concentrate sunlight for cooking, drying and pasteurization. More sophisticated concentrating technologies magnify the rays of the Sun for high temperature material testing, metal smelting, and industrial chemical production. A range of prototype solar vehicles provide ground, air and sea transportation.

What Is Green Energy?
I Hear This All The Time Companies Turn To Green Energy I Know It Is Some Kind Of Recycable Source But What Is It

energy is green when it as from a renewable resource and doesn't cause global warming like solar and wind power.
the three biggest renewable sources are solar, wind and water. things like burning gas and coal cause greenhouse gases which make global warming.

What Does Solar Constant Mean?

The flux of energy that arrives from the Sun, at Earth's distance from the Sun (1 AU)
it is approximately 1.36 to 1.37 kW/m²
This is measured perpendicular to the direction of the flux (imagine holding a 1 square-metre panel directly facing the Sun), in space - before Earth's atmosphere has any effect on it (our atmosphere, clouds and snow will bouncs, on average, 37% of that back into space).

The constant varies (every so slightly) over the 11-year cycle of activity of the Sun.

The actual flux will vary according to Earth's position along its orbit (perihelion vs aphelion).

It is called a "constant" because it can easily be used to calculate the flux to any other object, once you know its distance from the Sun in Astronomical Units (AU).
