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.

"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.

In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity rates have increased by an average of three percent each year.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

What'S The Best Place To Mount Solar Panels?

Depends where you are. The short answer is wherever it is convenient and allowed by statute, ordinance or covenant.

Ground mounted arrays can be as effective as roof mounted arrays without worry of the structure being able to handle the wind loading of the panels and mounts.

Post mounts work too.

Ideally north of the tropic of cancer- you want the panels to face southerly, nad south of the tropic of capricorn- to face north. In between those tropic lines just putting them flat to the sky would work reasonalby well.

You want to determine the midpoint of the sun's transit acros the sky from east to west in your area as terrain alters what is your optimum position; and perpendicular to the sun at it's highest point of transit location midday on one of the equinox days. for the best average of power output all year.

Solar Panel, Dc Light Help?
Hi, I Want To Put Some Solar Light In My Yard, And Wondering If A 100W Solar Panel Could Work For A Few 3W Dc Lights....Do I Need A Battery So They Run At Night, If So How Many Lights Do U Think I Can Run/ Also I See Elading Solar Light (Http://Www.Ebay.Com/Itm/Eleding-Pure-Digital-Solar-Powered-Ddc-Core-80-Led-Security-Flood-Spot-Lights-/111056358247?Pt=Lh_Defaultdomain_0&Hash=Item19db798b67 ) But Dont Know Wich One Is Better, The Solar Panel That It Use Is Only 3W For A Single Light...Help Pls ...Thanks In Advance...

3 w for 12 hours/night is 36 watt hours. You'll get about 500 watt hours/day from your panel on the average, which for a 12 volt battery is about 40 ampere hours. You can get an 80 amp-hour sealed gel cell battery to charge with this panel (with a suitable charge controller). You want to size your lights so the battery can provide three days of light without discharging it more than 50%, so that's abnout 600 watt-hours/3/36 = about 4 orf 5 lights. Cost for this system woulkd be over $500.

The advantage of the self contained light is they use a lithium or nickel battery rather than a lead acid, so it can run totally dead without damage (unmlike a sealed lead-acid battery). That would be a far cheaper way to go.

Have A Question About Mobile Homes And Solar Panels!!!?
Hi. I Hate The Energy Company. I Hate My Carbon Footprint. I Will Likely Move To A Piece Of Property And Put A Decent-Sized Mobile Home On It. I Want Solar Panels So I Can Get My Own Power. I Live In The State Of Wisconsin. How Much Would This Approximately Cost? Would I Need Certain Permits? How Many Panels Can Be Used? Thanks For Helping!

I'm not an expert on solar panels.... However, if you find they are expensive, I have a suggestion for eliminating a cost for heating... look into geo-thermal heating. It's a one time fee, they basically drill into the earth and heat your home with natural heat from underground. That wouldn't supply you all your power, but could cut down on the cost of solar panels, so you could use them simply for lights etc and not heat as well.... and I'm sure it would increase your re-sale value.
