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

#2 Make an excellent return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy prices have actually gone up by approximately three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing money flow, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and manage your expenditures.

Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for properties equipped 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 a crucial part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost variations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number.

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

Lots of homeowners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 changing and unreliable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

How Does Solar Power Help The Environment?
I'M Doing A School Project And Really Need Some Help On This Topic. How Does Solar Power Help The Environment? What Do Solar Panels Do For Your House? What Type Of Tradesman Installs Solar Panels?

Most electricity today is created by burning coal or natural gas. This burning causes global warming and pollution. And huge complexes of wires criss cross our country.

If every home had solar power, we'd need fewer electrical generation plants. Thus less pollution and fewer wires carrying the power. Imagine a solar power panel on every house's roof. Each home might be able to generate electricity and hot water for their own needs. This avoids pollution, global warming, carbon dioxide emissions, etc.

Solar panels would probably involve plumbers, carpenters and electricians. Are these the kind of panels that have water in them? If so, plumbers would be needed...

Where Can Solar Power Be Placed?
I'M Doing A Project On Solar Power. I Need To Know Where You Can Put Solar Energy. Not Just Panels, But Any Type Of Solar Energy. I Couldn'T Find What I Was Looking For. I Know Houses And Such, But Where Else?

The best locations are the ones that have a direct access to sunlight, and can have an unobstructed view of the sun. Power placement can be anywhere given the power has access to the solar energy conversion, whatever that is.

ecologically speaking

the Sun
Solar energy is the radiant light and heat from the Sun that has been harnessed by humans since ancient times using a range of ever-evolving technologies. Solar radiation along with secondary solar resources such as wind and wave power, hydroelectricity and biomass account for most of the available renewable energy on Earth. Only a minuscule fraction of the available solar energy is used.

Solar power technologies provide electrical generation by means of heat engines or photovoltaics. Once converted its uses are only limited by human ingenuity. A partial list of solar applications includes space heating and cooling through solar architecture, potable water via distillation and disinfection, daylighting, hot water, thermal energy for cooking, and high temperature process heat for industrial purposes.

Solar technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute sunlight. Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic panels, solar thermal collectors, with electrical or mechanical equipment, to convert sunlight into useful outputs. Passive solar techniques include orienting a building to the Sun, selecting materials with favorable thermal mass or light dispersing properties, and designing spaces that naturally circulate air.

Wind
Wind power is the conversion of wind energy into a useful form, such as electricity, using wind turbines. At the end of 2008, worldwide nameplate capacity of wind-powered generators was 120.8 gigawatts.[1] Although wind produces only about 1.5% of worldwide electricity use,[1] it is growing rapidly, having doubled in the three years between 2005 and 2008. In several countries it has achieved relatively high levels of penetration, accounting for approximately 19% of electricity production in Denmark, 10% in Spain and Portugal, and 7% in Germany and the Republic of Ireland in 2008.

and Waves,(as in ocean waves)
Ocean waves are caused by the wind as it blows across the sea. Waves are a powerful source of energy.

The problem is that it's not easy to harness this energy and convert it into electricity in large amounts. Thus, wave power stations are rare.

Hydro-electricity

Today the largest use of hydropower is for the creation of hydroelectricity, which allows low cost energy to be used at long distances from the water source. Hydroelectricity is electricity generated by hydropower, i.e., the production of power through use of the gravitational force of falling or flowing water. It is the most widely used form of renewable energy. Once a hydroelectric complex is constructed, the project produces no direct waste, and has a considerably different output level of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) than fossil fuel powered energy plants. Worldwide, hydroelectricity supplied an estimated 715,000 MWe in 2005. This was approximately 19% of the world's electricity (up from 16% in 2003), and accounted for over 63% of electricity from renewable sources.[1]

Some jurisdictions do not consider large hydro projects to be a sustainable energy source, due to the human, economic and environmental impacts of dam construction and maintenance.
