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 everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of homeowners discover that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce or even eliminate your electric expenses

Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy expense savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power costs have increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your home or business value

Multiple research studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are very important elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer getting choices, developing goodwill and enhancing business results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

Since 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 notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do Solar Panels Work?
Im Fourteen And Looking For A Career I Already Know Solar Panels Capture The Sun And Turn It Into Energy But I Would Like To Know More.

A solar panel is a collection of solar cells (photovoltaic cells) connected together and put in an enclosure.

The solar cells work by taking advantage of the photovoltaic effect. The effect is that in a semiconductor P-N junction, when photons of suitable energy strike the junction, an electron and electron-hole pair are generated. This creates a voltage difference between the two sides. When this voltage is applied to a circuit, the electrons are able to flow through, creating usable energy.

What Needs To Be Done In Order To Make Solar Power Affordable And Available?

Solar hot water heating already makes sense in many locations. It seems like every new house in Honolulu has it.

As for solar electric (photovoltaic panels), the technology is expensive for utility-scale generation, but financially viable for individual homes in increasing areas of the country. That's because a utility can have a nuclear or coal-fired boiler, and produce electricty at (say) 2 cents a kWh. For a consumer, though, the utility may charge 20 cents a kWh, on par with what solar electric costs, so the consumer can break even by putting panels on the roof. Unless a consumer is lucky enough to have running water for hydropower, or solid wind, there isn't a cheaper way to make electricity than solar.

The price of solar panels should be coming down as more manufacturers come on line. I think we will see an evolution rather than a revolution in the next few years, just as the price of PC's was initially high, then slowly came down.

Solar Panels?
Can A Solar Panel Get Energy If There Is A Lot Of Clouds Blocking The Sun?

The efficiency is reduced...that's why you need a heat sink or other storage system to see you through the times when the sun is not out.
You also need to have shutters on your collectors or valves that will shut off the them off otherwise the system can flow backwards and actually lose energy during cloudy days or at night.
In some areas rather then using the collected heat as is its actually more efficient to use it as a tempering or preheating system.
The majority of the energy used to produce (hot water)for example is used to bring the water from cold entry temperature to room temperature say 50-60 percent.
But if you mix your solar heated water into the water to bring it up to room temperature then you only need 40-50 percent to kick it up.

Why Solar Panels Are Expensive?
In Some Countries Where Electric Generation Is Low, They Are Not Available Easily.

Believe it or not, solar panels are so expensive in this country because of government subsides. Without market competition, companies have no obligation to compete with each other on price. If our government would stop paying people to buy solar panels and giving solar panel companies tax breaks, companies would be forced to lower their price and raise their quality in order to get you to buy their product.

This would be true of oil/gas, corn, soy beans and a number of other companies and products as well.

Can Anyone Explain How To Hook Up Solar Panels In Simple Terms?
I Want To Put A 125 Watt Polycrystaline Solar Panel On My Van. Im Not Mechanically Inclined At All. Why Are The Kits So Much More Expensive Then The Panels Alone? Doesnt Seem Right To Charge 4 Times As Much For A Charge Controller And Some Wire. My Undertanding So Far, Mount Panel On Roof, Connect Charge Controller, Drill Hole To Get Wires Inside, Connect To Battery, Connect Power Inverter To Batterry An I Should Have Power? If Anyone Knows How Or Knows A Site That Explains This, It Would Be Greatly Appreciated, Thanks.

Just what do you think you are going to accomplish by doing this? The battery in a vehicle doesn't need a solar panel to keep it charged.... and simply hooking a solar panel up to your single battery will not let you power things if you think you are going to start living in your van.

Just what is the purpose of all of this?
