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 air conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, many residents discover that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or even eliminate your electrical bills

Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a big portion of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity bill cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, residential electricity prices have increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a business or house owner with changing capital, going solar also helps you better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home value

Several research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for homes 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 a crucial component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is an excellent method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that pick to run properly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners decide to fund their photovoltaic 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, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy business are infamous for their changing and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can determine how much electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Financing

What are the various payment options?

We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

What is the warranty?

The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Energy?
How Easy Is It To Get Solar Energy And Where Can U Get It. I Will Give The First Person With Great Info Who I Will Choose As Best Answer

Very often there is confusion about the various methods used to harness solar energy. Energy from the sun can be categorized in two ways: (1) in the form of heat (or thermal energy), and (2) in the form of light energy.You've probably seen calculators that have Solar cells, calculators that never need batteries, and in some cases don't even have an off button. As long as you have enough light, solar cells seem to work forever. You may have seen larger solar panels on emergency road signs or call boxes, on buoys, even in parking lots to power lights.
Although these larger solar panels aren't as common as solar powered calculators, they're out there, and not that hard to spot if you know where to look. There are solar cell arrays on satellites, where they are used to power the electrical systems. Look at the resource

What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages For Solar Energy?

The most glaring and overlooked disadvantage to solar energy is the deprivation of sunlight to plant life (and people)


it is a green source of regenerable energy - this is main advantage and quite important these days, does not consume any resources thus once built a photovoltaic plant is very cheap to maintain.

disadvantages:
- you only can get a max of 1000W/m^2 - this is what our Sun offer, with 20% efficiency means 200W/m^2;
- you don't have any energy at night, and bad weather will decrease the output.
- instalation cost are still high. for a photovoltaic plant of 1MW, 1kWh cost about 3euro. for a 20kW you get 10euro per 1kWh
- big power output imply huge surfaces (because of the first "-")

Overall it is a new technology, still in development, but with a huge growth in last years. If you think 20% is to less, remember that combustion engine is ~15%. NASA use solar cell with 40% efficiency but those are to expensive for now.

>You can put it on top of buildings (usualy done) so none is deprived of sunlight.

If The Usa Became More Energy Independent Would Individual Income Per Capita Increase As In Other Countries?
If The Usa Became More Energy Independent Would Individual Income Per Capita Increase As In Other Countries? I Was Looking At Individual Income Values Of Other Countries And Found That Per Person That Income Was Higher Where The Countries Were More Self Reliant In Regards To Energy That Usually Was Not Petroleum Based Such That I Was Wondering If The Same Would Happen In The Us If The Country Began Supporting, Developing And Pushing Such Alternative Energy Sources As Geothermal, Solar, Wind Etc.

I think your data is skewed. There are very few countries that do not rely on oil. Iceland is the only one that comes to mind.

The reason we have become dependent on foreign oil is that buying oil from other countries was seen as the cheapest way to get energy. Had we made the investment in alternative energy sources, our per capita income would have been lower, not higher.

Even now, at oil's high prices, solar, biofuel, etc. are still generally more expensive per unit energy. All the solar panels going up across the United States are doing so only because the government is subsidizing them.

http://www.xomba.com/government_rebates_...

If oil prices continue to rise, or if technology improves, then alternative energy sources may well become cheaper than petroleum, but it will be a while.

On the other hand, some people have argued that even if it is more expensive in the short run, starting now will give us an advantage later.
And there are certainly specific cases where using alternative energy is cheaper (solar water heaters, etc.)

But there is an alternative approach to becoming more energy independent. If we stopped wasting so much energy, then we would spend less on energy, import less, and so be both more independent and better off on a per capita basis.

What Is The Fact About Earth That Creates The Unequal Distribution Of Solar Energy?
Need Help On This Question: What Is The Fact About Earth That Creates The Unequal Distribution Of Solar Energy? Thanks!

That it is a sphere. At high latitiudes, the sun's rays hit nearly parallel to the ground, and thus heat is spread over a large area (like tilting a flashlight at a wall. It forms a circle, but as you tilt it, it makes a larger and larger circle that's dimmer). And that's why it gets cold.

What Is Solar Energy?
Can You Give Me Sentence About Solar Energy

In a sentence:

Solar Energy is the radiant energy produced by the Sun.

A little more info that may be useful for you...

The radiant energy is the result of the nuclear fusion of hydrogen atoms into a helium atom. The resulting helium atom has less mass than the combined mass of the 4 hydrogen atoms that combined together. This leftover mass is the radiant energy that travels away from the Sun in the form of electromagnetic waves. When this wave of energy reaches Earth, we can convert the solar energy into heat or electricity for our own use.
