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 home owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, numerous homeowners find that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or perhaps eliminate your electric expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally 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 minimize your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power expense savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, property electricity costs have gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise assists you better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your home value

Several studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a terrific method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common property solar panel system will get rid of 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that opt to operate responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and improving company outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners choose to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- 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 Investment

The energy companies are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Can Sell Me Solarcell For Construction Of Solar Panels//A S P.?

You can try a place like this http://www.goldmine-elec.com/SolarItems.... but be aware that building a panel from cells at this price will cost more than simply buying a commercial panel. And the commercial panel will be weatherproof, reliable, and will have a warranty.

How Does Solar Panels Work?

Solar panels collect solar radiation from the sun and actively convert that energy to electricity. Solar panels are comprised of several individual solar cells. These solar cells function similarly to large semiconductors and utilize a large-area p-n junction diode. When the solar cells are exposed to sunlight, the p-n junction diodes convert the energy from sunlight into usable electrical energy. The energy generated from photons striking the surface of the solar panel allows electrons to be knocked out of their orbits and released, and electric fields in the solar cells pull these free electrons in a directional current, from which metal contacts in the solar cell can generate electricity. The more solar cells in a solar panel and the higher the quality of the solar cells, the more total electrical output the solar panel can produce. The conversion of sunlight to usable electrical energy has been dubbed the Photovoltaic Effect.

The photovoltaic effect arises from the properties of the p-n junction diode, as such there are no moving parts in a solar panel.

What Is The Best And Proven Solar Power Unit For Creating Free Power For Your Household?
Something That Is Affordable And You Can Use At Home.

The technology is well-proven for professionally installed systems, so I wouldn't worry too much about anything except the installer's reputation and expertise.

At present, solar electric involves $10k, $20k, maybe even more of capital investment in order to be cost effective in the USA. It varies by location. With rebates in some states, this can be cheaper than the grid electricity you presently buy, over the course of 10 or 20 years. Or, if the power you're buying right now is already very expensive, like 30 cents per kWh or more, then you can save money with solar. You can only SAVE money, it's not really "free".

But take heart! I think panel prices will be dropping in the next year or so. There was a shortage of polysilicon, the raw material that makes the majority of panels today, but new supplies will finally be coming on line.

Also, if saving money is your goal, first and foremost, invest in conservation - efficient appliances, insulation.

Finally, a solar hot water heater, displacing an electric one, can pay for itself in maybe 3 or 4 years, depending on where you live.

We installed solar panels on our house, $12,000 after rebate for a 2.5 kW system, about 2 years ago. A neighbor just installed a system, for about the same price, except they got 3.5 kW, professionally installed. Prices are beginning to soften.

When Will It Be Affordable For The Average Person To Afford Electric Cars, And Solar Panels?
I Hear On This Site That, These Are The Answer To All Our Problems, Problem Is The Average American Can'T Afford Them. Yes They Give You Tax Insentive'S, But At $100,000 An Up A Pop To Make You'Re House Run On Solar Energy, It'S Still A Pipedream For Most Of Us. Hybrid Cars Are What About $50,000 And Up.I Guess Like All Technoligy, We Just Have To Wait For The Price To Go Down With Time,

Ok you have to understand that the average family can not run their house off solar energy even if you you had your whole roof and half your yard covered with cells. you would have to change your stove to gas your frig to something so small you all you could keep in it would be gal of milk. your washing machine would be iffy at best and air dry your cloths and AC don't even think about it. and in 20 years your solar cells are worn out it time to buy new ones.

How To Make Solar Panel?
Hi Everbody Who Help Me Homemade Solar Panel

Buy Photovoltaic cells and your most practical (and cheapest) option is to set them up in cardboard cases.

You might be able to find a instruction video on youtube.
