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 property owner to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of residents discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly decrease or even eliminate your electrical costs

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big part of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy bill savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, property electricity prices have actually gone up by approximately three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your home or business worth

Numerous research studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost variations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common property solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are necessary parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that choose to operate properly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer getting choices, creating goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.

Many homeowners select to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy companies are infamous for their changing and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Are Solar Panels Measured, For Example 100 Watts?
Means 100 Watts A Minute, Hour? I Want To Install One On My Van.

watts are already a rate, joules per second. So watts per minute or hour is meaningless.

100 watts means it can deliver 100 watts, 100 joules per second, as long as it has bright sunlight on it.

In normal use, a 100 watt panel will deliver a lot less. Also you have to look at the voltage and current ratings.


Who Is The Official Contact For Engineering Review And Inspection Of My Current Meter?
On March 14, 2005, I Was Advised By A Pge Representative To Select E-8 Rate Schedule. I Thought This Would Lower My Charges;But I Find That My Charges Are Exceedingly High. Having Had Solar Panels Installed As Well, I Stand Appalled.

PGE or who ever your power company would be. Called them and ask and they will give you the engineer for your area. If you have solar panels and that is what is feeding your meter and house then you should talk to the people who installed the panels and the power company because it was installed wrong. In some (I think all) states there are laws that they have to pay you for the power you bring in even if it's only you who uses the power.

How Do Solar Panles Work At Night And Winter?

Photovoltaics don't produce any power at night. In winter, if they track on the longitudinal axis, they actually produce more energy in winter when there is snow on the ground while the sun is out- it acts as a reflector. Stationary panels see some benefit, but not quite as much.

Do You Know Anything About Using Solar Panels On An Electric Borehole Pump?
There Is An Orphanage Back Home In Zimbabwe That Is Trying To Set Up A Solar System For Their Previously Electric 30-Meter-Deep Borehole (Electricity Is Now Scarce There) ... How Do I Even Begin To Know What I'M Looking For? What Questions Do I Need To Ask About The Borehole There? What Should I Look For On The Solar Panels? Besides Solar Panels, What Else Do I Need To Set This Up? Shipping Is No Problem, There Is A Huge Crate Being Sent Over There Soon That Can Take Them. I'D Really Appreciate The Help!

There are solar panels and solar pumps in the yahoo search. You need to know the dianeter of the bore hole and find if a pipe was already inserted as well casing. The pipe diameter is needed for sizing the solar pump to be used. Also you need to require those who drilled the well to test the source spring what the capacity of the water well may be in gallons per minute. You'll need a battery to store the energy from the solar panels and electrical contactors and circuit breaker for the source power. Finally, the controls are to be wired in a panel with an overload relay and switch. Your voltage rating of the source will depend on the pump motor rating.
