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 conditioner, washing clothes, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous property owners discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or perhaps remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.

#2 Earn a great return on your investment

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

#3 Secure against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power costs have actually increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a service or property owner with changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your expenses.

#4 Increase your house worth

Numerous studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs 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 development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a terrific way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are necessary components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to run properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer getting choices, producing goodwill and improving company outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving 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 loan down.

Many property owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier 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 power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Panel Business?
I Was Wondering If Anybody Tried A Solar Panel Installation Business For Regular Homes, Businesses ... Etc. I Think That Hospitals And Factories ... And Everybody Can Benefit From An Extra Source Of Clean Energy. The Actual Panels And Work Will Eventually Pay Itself Out.

Yes, I worked for a company that installed them. I'm trying to install them as part of my company right now.

Solar Energy In Florida?
Recently I Was On Vacation In The General Area Of Naples, Florida.I Expected To See A Lot Of Solar Power Being Generated Down There. To My Utmost Surprise Solar Energy Cells On Roofs Etc. Could Not Be Seen. Would It Not Make Any Sense To This Energy Source To Its Fullest In South West Florida?

There are so many people who do not understand how solar works. And then a lot of people do not have the start up cost and can't get a loan. Then you have to add in the people who are lazy and are not willing to pickup a pencel and do the math. Or they just don't know how to do the math. And then there are the people who wear blinders and don't want to see the savings and profit in solar.

A statement from one of the answers above is proof that people are blinded or just unwilling (lazy if I may say) to think it over. If you move you will add the cost of the solar power system to the price of hour home. When you do that you get all your money back and how many years you lived there in free electric.

The statement was also made that you have to replace the batteries twice in 20 years. That is very true if you have batteries on your system. I am willing to bet a dollar that there are more grid tie only systems installed then are systems with batteries.

Then as was said above it takes 15 to 20 years for the system to pay for it's self. If the systems without batteries will last from 30 to 40 years and adding in the inflation rate you would save anywhere from $10,000 to $40,000 in the system life time.

Better then playing the stock markets and pays you back more money then having money setting in a saveing account.

How Many Volts Does An Average Solar Panel Produce?
I'M Doing A Science Fair Experiment With A Tiny Two-Inch Solar Panel That Only Gives Off Like 1.5 Volts Of Energy, But I Need To Know How Many Volts An Average Sized Solar Panel (Like One You'D Get To Run Your House) Would Produce. And How Many Panels Do People Usually Get?

You should read up on the different electrical units. You say "1.5 volts of energy", but this makes little sense. Energy is measured in Joules. Power in Watts. Solar panels will produce different voltages and currents, depending on the amount and angle of sunlight hitting them. Power = volts * amps.

Before installing solar panels a home owner should do an energy audit to find out how much power they currently use - and how much that could be reduced with some easy changes. Solar panels are expensive, so it makes sense to reduce the amount that you need to install. In some places you can sell extra power back to your utility - so having extra panels might give you some small amount of money back - but this is rarely enough to justify the cost of the extra panels.

I put 28 panels on my house (see picture in source URL). My utility has tiered pricing for electricity (first few kWh each month are cheap, but price for extra ones goes up in stages). My panels keep me from having to pay the higher rates.

In What Location Will Solar Energy Be Least Efficient?
A. The Oregon Coast B. The Southwest Desert (I Know This One Is Wrong.... I Tried It Already) C. The Kansas Plains D. The Rocky Mountians Thanks To All Those Who Helped!!!!!!!

You have many options for using renewable energy at home, including solar panels and small wind turbines.

Solar panels are the most popular form of renewable energy today. You can use them to generate heat, electricity, and indoor and outdoor light.

If you live on at least one acre of land with an ample wind resource, you can generate your own electricity using a small wind electric system. You can also use a small wind turbine for pumping water, or to charge a sailboat battery.

Although the temperature doesn't affect the amount of solar energy a solar panel receives, it does affect how much power you will get out of it. To make a long and complicated story short, as the solar panels get hotter, they will produce less power from the same amount of sunlight.
