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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing 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, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly decrease or even remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big part of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power prices have increased by approximately three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your residential or commercial property value

Numerous studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values 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 become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added 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 nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to operate properly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility companies are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate just how much electrical power will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Improve Significantly Solar Panels Efficiency With Mirrors?
We Have Some Solar Panel On Our Roof. My Neighbor Has A Redwood That I Causing Some Shading On My Panels From September To March. If I Placed Some Mirrors To Light The Shaded Area, Would It Make My Panel Produce As Much As If It Were In Full Sunlight? I Understand It Would Not Be Very Practical As The Mirror Would Need To Track The Sun During The Day. Just Curious. Thanks

They're like batteries, either wired in series in which case shade on one means a loss of voltage and perhaps an added resistance if wired in series or a short if wired in parallel. Diodes can be used to prevent the shorts resulting in just a loss of current but each diode represents not only a cost but a 0.6V voltage drop as well as energy loss so it's a tradeoff as to how you want to wire the cells to account for shade and for both economy and efficiency.

Mirrors that track the sun are called heliostats and are used to concentrate light on photovoltaic cells when the cost of such cells warrant it but these days the price of cells have come down enough to obfuscate such measures. You may be able to get away with the right curved mirror so that a different portion of the mirror comes into play as the day goes on, of course there's not just the different angles through the day but the different angles through the months as you've already noticed. It won't take much before the mirrors become more expensive and difficult to mount than the solar panels.

This is where solar thermal collectors really shine (pun intended). Vacuum tube solar thermal collectors work in partial shade and cloudy conditions and the majority of a houses energy consumption is for heating, air-conditioning and hot water, all of which can be provided for by solar thermal (air-conditioning can be powered by a thermal source if a lithium bromide water absorption chiller unit is used).

How Does Using Wind Energy Save Money By Not Using Fossil Fuels?
Http://Walmartstores.Com/Video/. On This Commercial I Have To Explain Who (The Target Audience), Where (Where The Commercial Is Successful), When, (When This Commercial Would Be Most Successful), Why (Why This Commercial Is Successful), And How (How This Commercial Is Successful).

Nothing is burned to produce heat. A fossil fuels are peat, coal and oil derivatives like heating oil and gasoline.

Wind is air moving from one place to another in response to differences in heating by the sun (short answer). So wind power, in a way, is also solar.

How Can I Live Without Eating At All?
Only With Water. I Know There Are Some Spiritual People Who Can Do That. They Feed Off The Cosmic Energy Directly Without Using Food As An Intermediary Source. And They Can Live Like That For Months, Even Years. So Does Anyone Know How I Can Become Like Them? I Want To Stop Eating Altogether And Concentrate My Mind'S Energy Over My Body/Matter To Achieve That. Any Tips?

Please note: a complete answer would fill many books, entire libraries even, so I'm just crudely condensing some of the main points. You'll have to do a lot of research yourself - which is the way it should be, if you wish to grow spiritually.

First of all, it usually takes years and years to reach that stage. Secondly, it's quite dangerous if you're not at a very high level of spirituality. People have done serious harm to themselves trying to live without food. It's much safer to strive towards exposing yourself to as much cosmic energy as possible, and to purify yourself and become even more spiritual. If as you do this you start to have a decreased need for food and even stop eating altogether, that's a nice side effect. But don't strive for it, let it just happen.

So, how can you expose yourself to more cosmic energy? The three main sources are sunlight, pure air, and pure water. The way to absorb more of this energy is to become more conscious/spiritual, and a very important technique for this is meditation. People with only positive thoughts and loving intentions, and the very spiritual, also radiate positive energy that heals, uplifts and nourishes.

The sun gives forth many types of electromagnetic radiation, including frequencies as yet unrecognized by science. Some of these frequencies are very beneficial for physical, mental and spiritual health. Only a few have the slight potential to be harmful, if received in very large amounts. The sun is NOT a giant ball of cancer-causing death, all of that hype is just that - hype. The only way sun exposure can harm you is if you allow yourself to get sunburned. As with everything, moderation is the key. But try and spend as much time as possible, with as much skin exposed to the sun as possible. Build up your resistance slowly until you can stay in the sun for many hours without getting burned. Never wear sunscreen (which is toxic, clogs your pores and prevents you from absorbing the positive energy of the sun) or sunglasses, as you can absorb solar energy through your eyes too. Sungazing dramatically accelerates your spiritual progress, but I advise that you research the topic thoroughly and learn how to do it properly before attempting it.

Another way to absorb more solar energy is to get it from your food; plants absorb and concentrate solar energy, and when eaten soon after being harvested they transfer this energy to your own cells. However, cooking destroys this energy. Research "biophotons".

There's a lot to say about diet and health, but to keep it simple just keep in mind that health and spirituality are inextricably linked. The healthier you are the better you feel, the better your brain operates, the more spiritual you are. Avoid artificial chemicals in your food, water, and air. Exercise. Go to bed early and rise early (sleeping under the stars is very beneficial for spirituality). Avoid artificial man-made environments and interact with nature as much as possible (mainly for spirituality purposes but also improves your health). Etc. One more quick thing on diet - digestion uses a tremendous amount of energy. The main appeal of living without food is that you free up lots of energy to improve your spirituality and health even more. People living solely on cosmic energy are immune to disease and the aging process is greatly retarded for them, and great wisdom is received. So, in order to live solely of cosmic energy, you need to become more spiritual; you can do that by putting less of a digestive burden on your body. Kind of a catch-22. Obviously you can just eat less food, but you don't want to become malnourished - nearly everyone on the planet is deficient in multiple important nutrients already. Three easy ways to decrease the amount of energy it takes to digest your food while actually increasing the nutrients you get are sprouting, fermenting, and juicing. Sprouts and fresh unheated fruit/vegetable juice also provide you with very high amounts of cosmic energy/life energy.

Sunlight can also be used to energize water, but I'll explain more about that when I talk about energized water.

I Want To Make A Mobile Phone Project Which Works With Solar Energy And Will Be Without Sim?
Earlier Also I Asked But I M Not Satisfied.Perhaps Many People Misunderstand Me Regarding Concept Of Without Sim,It Doesn'T Mean That There Will Be No Alternative For It.Please Give Me Details Of Design And Things Required For Mobile

I always find that the better parts of a project is the planning, the designing, and then getting the parts and building it, getting it working.

But you don't agree with me on that, apparently. But perhaps you can tell me what fun you get out of it if you get everyone else to do the work for you?

But anyway..

The very earliest stage is to write a set of requirements, which leads to a set of specifications. It's only then that you can start the design. So what are your requirements or specifications? By mobile phone do you mean cellular phone (mobile has different meanings in different countries)? Are you designing and building a phone from scratch (that is very difficult and i advise against it)? If not, what is the phone model and brand and what is it's power requirements? Will you have a rechargeable battery for when the sun does not shine? How fast do you expect the solar panel to recharge the batteries? Are you carrying the solar panel around or is it in a fixed location?

As you answer these questions, more will come up. That is the process of pinning down the project scope and specifications.

PS what does "without sim" mean? and why do you refuse to explain that further, as it is an obvious source of misunderstanding?

Why Choose Solar Energy?
In Terms Of Pollution, Sustainability, And Habitat Loss, Solar Energy Sums Up Pretty Well. The Only Con About It Is The Intial Cost. But Even Though It Is An All-Rounder. How Can I Explain This In More Detail, Also Using Comparison With Other Alternative Energy Sources.

The man and I live on a sailboat, and we have a solar panel and it works very well. We've met with other cruisers and they too have solar. Some say they even have it on they houses. We have just one, but it works very well. Runs our lights, the fauset and the bildge. The cost for the panels and its hook it, can be pricey. But by solar energy, you are not having to use as much power for the Energy Companys. And they get their fuels by other means. And it also produces toxins into the enviroment. Not sure if this happened where you lived, but when gas prices got stupid, the cost of Electricity jumped up too. So having A solar panel, I think, is good for the enviroment, as well as on the pocket in the long run.
