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 daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous homeowners find that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably lower and even remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power rates have actually gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or house owner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar likewise assists you better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home or business worth

Several studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar 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 element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost changes in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is an excellent method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are important parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and improving service outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

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

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy business are well-known for their varying and unreliable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Financing

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The Major Source Of Energy In Our Solar System?

Nuclear energy in the sun, which is then transferred by radiation. The nuclear reactions are caused by colliding particles in the sun's core due to the massive gravity.

Is It Economical To Run A Solar Energy To Power My Electricals At Home?
I Was Thinking Of Having It Installed In My House But I Still Have To Do Some Research If It Is Economical And Efficient.

Unfortunately to use solar panels that convert sunlight directly into electricity is not economical or energy efficient. The only time it is really worth it is if you are in a remote location and it is one of your only options.

Solar panels lose 40% of the energy from the sun as heat loss. If instead you used solar collectors to directly heat the water you use in your home you would save more money and energy. Solar Collector systems are much cheaper. Why convert the suns energy to electricity only to turn around an convert it to heat again to warm your water?

Photoelectric Solar panels are very expensive to produce money-wise, and energy-wise. With current technology the amount of energy that is used to produce a photoelectric panel is MORE than the amount of energy it will ever produce. The quality of Silicon Crystal required does not occur naturally and the process that it takes to produce it is very energy intensive. ( 2100-2300 degree C temps are required ) Photoelectric power has the perception of being "green" but only if you leave the production process out of the equation.

as for the money side, you might be able to come out ahead if you can buy the panels outright and recieve a tax break. Then if you live in a very sunny area, the more direct sunlight you get the more benefit you recieve.

Why Is President Bush Wrong On Offshore And Anwar Oil Drilling?
The Us Uses Over 7 Billion Barrels Of Oil A Year According To The Energy Information Agency. Offshore Drilling On The Continental Shelf Would Give America A Little Over 2 Years Of Oil Supply According To Eia. Anwar Would At Best Provide A Little Less Than 2 Years Of Oil Supply According To Eia. So Instead Of Turning To Electric Cars Like The Phoenix Sut / Suv Which He Himself Endorsed On The White House Grounds He Shows His True Colors All For A Measly 4 Years Of Oil Production Which Would Take 6 To 10 Years To Bring Online. Wind And Solar Can Provide Half The Energy Of The Usa If Programmed Correctly. He Was Educated At Yale? Hard To Believe.

Because it is very expensive to drill offshore and we don't even know if there is oil there. It's a pricey risk! Not to mention the cost to the environment. Also, offshore drilling will not drop gas prices. IF and that's a big IF, oil is found it would not make it to the pumps for years maybe even decades. This is just a GOP gimmick.

What Are Your Views On Energy Production And The Environment?
I Don'T Usually Post Or Read Questions Under Global Warming, In My Experience, Most People Under This Tab Are Looking For A Fight, Not An Answer. We Live In A Home That Is Powered By The Wind And Sun For Environmental Reasons. I'M Not Concerned About Global Warming, My Theory Is That The Earth Will Rebalance Itself Whatever We Do To It, Even If It Kills All Of Us In The Process. Here Are Two Links To Articles, One For Fossil Fuel Use, And The Other For Renewables. Check Them Out, Then Post Your Opinions Here.

Hi Rudydoo.
I worked for more 35yrs in the power generation industry, and know what most people don't know, and that is that electrical grids have to operate in very narrow ranges, output has to match demand, voltage and frequency must be maintained, to do this means constant adjustment of load output, a lot of which is done automatically by 'free govenor action' some is done by preplanned load changes (we approx know peak demand periods) and a lot of load alterations are done as and when needed.
Of the renewables, hydro is brilliant it is the most flexible of all power generation, it can start up or shut down in minutes and control anywhere in between, Geothermal well I don't know that much about it, but it seems okay, tidal not so flexible but at least we know in advance what the tides will do. However solar and wind are really useless, they can't change load and you never know whether they will produce zero or too much, they cause a burden on other generating systems which have to make up for their lack of flexibility.
You say your home is powered by wind and sun, do you have grid back up? or do you just put up with lack of power, when the wind does not blow and the sun shine, or do you live in a place with permanent sunny skies and constant wind?
My view is give up the back to nature approach, but move forward to better technology, improved generating means (probably some form of nuclear) more efficient and less polluting generation, we can do it, we have the knowledge, the ingenuity, the innovation, but it seems we are lacking motivation.
P.s.
Your second link, is about health, what about the many millions who do not have electricity and suffer respiratory diseases from burning wood and animal dung for fuel?
