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 house owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous residents discover that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically reduce or perhaps remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate 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 reduce your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill cost savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power costs have actually gone up by approximately three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're a company or homeowner with ever-changing money flow, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your expenses.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Multiple studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is an excellent way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that pick to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and enhancing business results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners choose to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy companies are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most significantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

What Materials Do I Need To Build Solar Panels?

I don't remember exactly how this person did it, but I was watching Extreme Makeover: Home Edition one day, and this boy that lived in a Native American reservation actually made solar panels out of soda cans so he could help his family lower the heating bills.. I KNOW it sounds crazy, but it worked for them! I think he said he was going to try to make a patent for it, but I'm sure you can find how to make one on http://www.eHow.com/, and here's a site I found that might help you as well: http://results.letsimproveyourhome.com/index.php?c=2633&ss=building+solar+panels&trk=solar+panels||c
Hope this helps!!! :)

I Want To Conserve Energy, Is There Anyone Out There Who Knows How To Make Solar Panel The Simple Way?
What Are The Key Materials Needed To Create A Solar Panel And The Simple Steps To Assemble It. What Would Be The Desirable Size Of The Panel Enough To Run A Desk Fan Motor?

If you want to feel better about yourself, you can definitely do this kind of project. Keep in mind however that your payback will take a very long time. Solar panels are rather expensive. Let’s assume for a moment that you are running 50 W fan. This means that you need a solar panel with the area of about 700 Square inches. It will set you back about $300 or more. This panel will have to be exposed to full sun light. Solar panel however produces only DC current. You will need one of two things; fan with special motor or DC to AC inverter. Add another $50. 00. If you run the some fan on the grid power you will use 1KWH of energy in 20 hours. Average cost of 1KWH in USA is about 10 -12 cents. You will have to run your fan for over 3000 Hrs. in order to brake even. Keep in mind that you also need wires, some kind of mounting bracket etc. to make you project work.

How Much Solar Power Do I Require?
I Am Thinking About Buying A Solar Panel To Light Up A 1000W Bulb. Now I Find It Hard To Choose Which Solar Panel Should I Go For. I Have Seen Solar Panels Which Are Capable Of Producing 1Kw Energy. Now I Need To Know Whether This 1Kw Solar Panel Can Be Used To Light Up A 1Kw Bulb.

To light up a 1 kw continuously will require a lot of power. That is 1000 watts an hour for 24 hours , which equals 24 kWh's a day of power.

Most solar cells in full sun are about 15% efficient. Of course you have cloudy days and dark periods and short days in winter.

The sun at best puts out about 1000 watts/ m^2, so if you get 15% of this, you get about 150 watts per square meter.

1000 watt light bulb/ 150 watts = about 7 square meters of 15% efficient panels to run thru the day.

To run thru the night and cloudy periods, count on at least 300-400% storage capacity in batteries and charge inverters to give power back.

So about 21-25 square meters of panels would probably be good. Go to a solar manufacturer website to get specifics. With light trackers and concentrators you can do much better.

It is probably better to get DC powered lights rather than AC lights, so you can use the power directly without an AC inverter and the losses it comes with and costs.

When dealing with solar, you go with solar heat for heating water and space, that is the cheapest use of solar. Then you go with DC lighting and battery storage. Only use an inverter for appliances that require AC specifically, like TV's and computers

What Battery Has The Longest Output For Solar Aplications?
I Know That Semi And Forklift Batteries Work Great With Solar Panels, But When Using A 12V. System, Which Of The Hundreds Will Last The Longest Per Charge And Which Has The Best Life Expectancy?

If you are looking for longevity go with a 24 volt forklift battery and cut the bar so you have 2 12 volt batteries and wire them in parallel.

The differences are in the construction of the lead plates, with the fork lift battereis made the most durable. Deep cycle batteries are designed for a life of about 400 charge/discharge cycles to 80 percent capacity. AGM's if you get them new, have a bit longer cycling life, but do not do well with desulphating techniques.

As lead acid batteries go, the capacity is determined by surface area available.

If you are looking for longevity and affordability, go for golf cart batteries as they made a little more durable than Deep cycles.

To learn more about the lead acid battery, there is a book published on it. Worth having for reference even if you only need to read it once.
