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 air conditioning system, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous home owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower or perhaps remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic 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 consume, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity costs savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a service or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your home value

Multiple studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

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 capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included 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 nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is an excellent way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common residential solar panel system will get rid of 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are crucial parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that pick to operate properly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and enhancing company results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous homeowners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- 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 Financial investment

The utility companies are infamous for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine just how much electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Financing

What is the warranty?

The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Electric Cars Really Better For The Environment? Comparison Needed.?
It'S Really Quite Difficult To Fully Understand Where Pollution/ Co2 Emissions Are Cut. I Would Like Anyone With Serious Knowledge To Tell Me; A Comparison Of Oil And Electricity Would Be Ideal. For Instance: - % Of Electricity Produced Using, Coal, Oil, Nuclear, Solar, Wind, Etc - Pollution Created From Getting These Resources - Pollution From Shipping These (Oil V Electric Alternatives) - Pollution From Refining Oil For Use As Petrol And Diesel - Pollution Created From Making Electricity With Each Resource (Per Kwh Or Which Ever Way Is Best For Comparison) - How Much Electricity Is Lost As It Moves Through Power Lines Etc ( I Heard It Was 7%, This Needs To Be Factored Into Pollution Per Kwh Or Which Ever Unit Is Being Used) - Comparison Of How Much Pollution Is Created When 1 Unit Of Petrol And Diesel Is Burned Vs 1 Unit Of Electricity Is Created. (So In Terms Of Energy 1 Unit Would Eqaul The Same Then Convert To Litres Vs Kwh, Or Something Like That) Total Of Each One So A True Comparison Can Be Made. Please Include Anything Else I Have Missed Out Which Is Relevent (I Will Assume Quite A Lot!)

There's a number of complicated ways to answer this question, but it's good to keep things as simple as possible.
*
The most straightforward way to know that EVs are cleaner is to look at the energy used to refine gasoline.
*
Since it takes more energy to refine gasoline than electric cars use, gasoline must be dirtier - since the gas car burns petroleum in addition to using this refining energy.
*
A large portion of the refining energy comes from electricity. The rest comes from fossil fuels. There's a statement from the US Energy Information Administration on this page stating that 6 kilowatt-hours of electricity goes into every gallon of gas:
http://gatewayev.org/how-much-electricit...
*
Six KWH is enough electricity to power an electric car 20 to 30 miles. Again, the gas car uses this refining energy (with its pollution), and then burns gasoline, with additional pollution, on top of that. The EV only uses the electricity.
*
You are correct to point out that electricity loses about 7% efficiency when it moves over power lines to charge electric cars. However, the equivalent step for gasoline - TRUCKING gasoline to thousands of service stations - is far less efficient than that.

How To Design A Model That Will Use Wind , Water , Or Solar Power To Supply Energy?
I Have This Project In Science And I Need To Make A Model That Will Use Renewable Energy , It's Easy To Make , And It Actually Works.The Model Has To Median Not Too Big And Not Too Small.It's Also Going To Need A Really Good Explanation Because I'm Going To Have To Demonstrate It In Front Of My Class And It's A Big Part Of My Grade. Thanks For The Help!

Take a by cycle wheel without tyre. Fix six numbers plastic funnel on its outer that are used in petrol bungs. If you keep it on your house top horizontally it will rotate by wind.You can just fix a toy D.C motors usually available in any battery operated toys.Connect it suitable to rotate the shaft of that tiny motor. You can connect a L.E.D bulb.That will glow.Instead of cycle wheel you can connect it in plastic fan and show it under tap water .That will also rotate and produce energy to light up a L.E.D.

Could A Solar Powered Uv Generator Completely Reverse Agw?
A Follow-Up To My Last Question About Microwave Generators. If We Had A Solar Powered Device Capable Of Producing Radiation Only In The Uvb Band, And It Were Directed Straight Up, Would This Cause The Stratosphere To Heat Due To The Higher Concentration Of Ozone There? And If So, Then Since The Device Is Solar Powered And Is Essentially 'Stealing' Energy From The Sun That Would Have Otherwise Gone Into Warming The Surface, It Will Have The Effect Of Redistributing Solar Energy From The Surface To The Stratosphere. So If Enough Of These Devices Are Built On A Large Enough Scale, Would That &Quot;Rebalance&Quot; The Energy Imbalance Caused By Global Warming (Where The Upper Atmosphere Is Cooling And Lower Atmosphere Is Warming) And Eventually Bring Both Tropospheric And Stratospheric Temperatures Back To Preindustrial Levels, Even Without Worrying About Co2? Don'T Worry About Practicality, I Am Just Wondering If The Physics Add Up Or If There'S Some Key Piece I'M Missing.

since the oceans are absorbing 95% of the energy, i don't think so.

clearly if you could cover 1/2 the oceans with mirrors, you'd be able to reverse global warming.
but you'd create an environmental disaster in the process.
we've already reduced fish stocks to critical levels in much of the ocean.
depriving the remaining ocean of sunlight would reduce algae and all of the fish that depend on it.

so the 2 problems are,
1. scale, it really is not scalable to the size needed, and
2. location, it doesn't lend itself to being deployed where the problem is most serious.

What Would Make A Solar System Add Energy To An Electric Bill Instead Of Replace It?
We Installed A Pv Solar System For A Customer, But His Meter Is Speeding Up Instead Of Running Backwards Like All The Other Systems. What Could Cause This?

Hey Jared, frustrating problem you have there isn't it? Let's narrow the field a bit. I assume you have an array of some size connected to a grid tie inverter. There are two possibilities here. One, your system is actually pulling power in from the grid when it should be going out. Two, the meter installed on the house is a newer type, which in some cases looks like the old electric-mechanical ones we grew up with, but differs in how the logic inside works. Here is a simple test you can do. Go to the house at a time when you have good midday sun. Have the homeowner turn off all nonessential loads. This will put your system in a state where it should be producing enough power to feed the home and the grid simultaneously. Now examine the meter and see which direction and how fast it is spinning. It should be spinning in a direction that indicates power feeding out to the grid. You won't know which way is which yet, but you will in a minute. Next, have someone turn off the inverter, so that you know no power is feeding back onto the grid, and examine the meter while this is done. If the meter spins faster, but in the same direction, all is well, it means the home was using more power than the array was providing, but deactivating it increased the amount of grid power the house needed to keep running. In this case I would suspect the home has some unknown load someplace, such as an attic fan running continuously, or a well pump with a bad check valve, and so forth. If the meter slows down when you turn off the solar, than it means one of two things. First, that your solar system is actually drawing a load someplace. Without seeing the system you installed I couldn't begin to guess where the problem might be. I would suspect the inverter or AC wiring from the inverter to the house. Second, that the meter on the house is a new type that only runs in one direction, and it sees the extra power from the grid as more load power.

The third thing that could happen is the meter reverses direction when the solar is turned off. This indicates that the system is working well also, but the homeowner simply is using additional power someplace after hours.

As a side note, after doing this test by turning the inverter on and off, try also turning off the AC feed from the house to the inverter while it is running and see if the results are the same. If you get a different result, it might indicate that the solar array is in fine shape, but the AC wiring to the inverter or the inverter itself are suspect.

I'm wondering, you said, "We" installed this array, are you a solar installer for a living? If so you might put in a call to the inverter manufacturers tech support and throw this at them, if problems like this have occured before with their product, they usually know about it.

Good luck Jared, and take care, Rudydoo
