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 house owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower or perhaps eliminate your electric expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a large portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity costs cost savings, the average American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, property electricity prices have actually gone up by an average of three percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your home value

Numerous studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes 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 part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary components of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer buying choices, developing goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility companies are infamous for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute how much electricity will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Where Can I Get Damaged Solar Panels?
I Would Like To Know Of Any Construction Companies, Road Crews, Or Any Company That Uses Solar Panels In The Tampa Area And Throws Them Away. I Like To Recycle Solar Panels By Repairing And Processing What Power I Can From Them. Know Any Companies That Throw Out Used Solar Panels? If So, Can You Provide The Name And Number?

Used solar panels are usually a great bargain. Unless there is obvious major damage, you are most likely making a very safe and thrifty purchase--and if you can test the panels with a multimeter in full sunlight before purchase, you are almost guaranteed a functional panel. Nobody really knows what the lifespan of a solar panel is, since many of the very first panels are still in operation. I have three very old Arcos on my house, and they are still performing well. However, used panel prices have

How Much Power Can One Expect From A Solar Panel?
In Other Words, If The Panel Is Rated At 100 Watts But Over The Course Of A Day, How Much Charge (Amp- Hours) Can One Expect Into A Wet Cell On Average.

It depends strongly on where the panel is located. There is a chart of peak equivalent sun-hours here: http://rredc.nrel.gov/solar/old_data/nsr... You can get the number of hours for a specific time of year, or year-round average.

You take the hour figure above, and multiply it by the wattage to get kilowatt-hours. So suppose your area gets 5 hours of equivalent peak sun per day. 5 hours x 0.1 kW = 0.5 kWh per day. If you are charging a lead-acid battery, throw away 20% of that for charging inefficiency, so 0.4 kWh (or 400 watt-hours). If the battery is 12 volts, then 400 w-h/12 V = about 33 AH. This would be enough to keep up with a 100 AH deep cycle battery, because you should never discharge a lead-acid battery all the way. The preceding was a hypothetical example, you would need to do the calculations for your own location.

What Are Solar Panels Made Up Of?
I Mean Like Bread Is Made Of Wheat, What Are Solar Panels Made Up Of? How Are They Manufactured?

solar panels are mad of crystalline silicon. it typically involves cutting the crystalline silicon into tiny discs less than a centimeter thick. these then thin discs are carefully polished and treated to repair and gloss any damage sustained from the slicing process. after polishing, dopants (material added to alter electrical charge in a semiconductor) and metal conductors are spread across each disc. the conductors are aligned in a thin, grid like matrix on top of the solar panel, and are spread in a flat, thin sheet on the side facing the earth. to protect the solar panels after processing, a thin layer of covering glass is then bonded to the top of the photovoltaic cell. after bonding the protective glass, the nearly finished panel is attached to the subtrate by thermally conductive cement. the thermally conductive property of the cement keeps the solar panel from becoming overheated. and any leftover energy that the solar panel is unable to convert to electricity would otherwise overheat the unit and reduce the efficiency of the solar cells.

hope this helps, and just curious what made you interested? :)

Maintenance For Solar Panels....?
What Sort Of Maintenance Is Required For Solar Panels....?

All panels should be cleaned to function best. Brush or wash off dirt and leaves.
They should be checked for structural integrity and lack of rust.

Solar Thermal panels should be checked for signs of leaks and/or discharge from pressure relief valves.
Solar Photovoltaic should be checked for electrical function and grounding.
