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 daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of home owners discover that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably lower or even eliminate your electrical costs

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large portion of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.

#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power prices have gone up by an average of 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar also helps you better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Multiple research studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

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

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific way to decrease 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 normal residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that select to operate properly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of customer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many property owners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely 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 Financial investment

The utility business are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

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.

The Lease

  • Low, fixed payments each month
  • System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance
  • Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

  • We own the solar panel system
  • $0 down for installation
  • Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use

Purchase

  • Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
  • System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
  • Receive 30% federal tax credit
  • See a return on investment within 7-10 years

What happens when the contract for my lease is finished?

We provide our customers with a few different options for when their lease contract is up. Customers can upgrade their equipment to the newest solar technology available, extend the agreement, or have the panels removed at no cost.

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

How Do Solar Panels Work?
I Need As Much Detail As Possible.

It's photoelectric process. When the light hits the panel, it's energy exites the electrons in the panel and they begin to travel along the circuit if one is present. Light is EXTREMELY high frequency energy, so you wind up with a steady smooth DC current.

You can make your own at home very easily. You will need copper sheeting you can find at some hobby shops, salt water, and an acrylic casing like the hard ones like people use to protect baseball cards, or a flexible one like those used to protect comic books, a soldering iron, and flux core solder.

First, you want to burn the copper on the stove. Once it builds a even black coating you can remove it and let it cool. Next use a soft bristle brush to remove the black soot and expose the oxidised surface of the copper. It's really pretty and you don't want to scratch it.

Next, use the soldering iron and flux core solder to tin the very corner of the oxide coating, and the very corner of the back to clean copper. The oxide coating is now the positive of the solar cell. Cover both connections with clear fingernail polish, or even a little silicon.

Next, slip the plate into whatever you chose to use as it's protective casing and fill it with salt water then seal it with the soldering iron. Now connect a ohm meter to the new terminals and face the pretty side towards the sun or light source and see how much your getting from it.

This is a very basic method. It's not very efficient but you can use it to study for a better understanding. The most efficient solar cells available to the general public are silicon.

I Need Some Solar Panels As My Outdoor Energy Source.If I Want A 60 Watt One, Guys Can Give Some Advice?
Not Expensive, Esay To Install And Can Recharges All My Stuff.

60 watts is BIG, AND expensive. You are talking 5 amps at 12 volts! And you are looking at hundreds of dollars! I have a 6 watt panel I use in my RV, which gives 500ma at 12 volts on a clear bright sunny day, which is enough to keep my batteries topped off from minimal use, but NOT something I could use to power this laptop I am using NOW to write this answer! YOU face the exact SAME problem. I have a friend who took the Y2K thing seriously, so seriously he moved off the grid. He bought a house and went solar. He spent over $20,000 on the panels and batteries he needed. And then consider this, the batteries do not last forever, so figure on about another $12K to replace the batteries at about 10 year intervals and another $8K to replace the solar panels as well. Solar panels DO "wear" over time and produce less and lass power per year. So, he is spending about $2K per year to maintain his solar power, which confidentially is about the SAME he would have spent if he stayed tied to the grid and paid for his electricity! There is NO benefit from converting to solar in a cost out of pocket expense, and you have the added time and trouble of maintaining the system. You have to clean the dust off the panels on a regular basis, or the dust blocks light and your panels lose output. So, there is NO inexpensive route that you can take since there is no cost-benefit in your favor. One of two things has to happen, or both before it makes financial sense to convert: the cost of the equipment has to go down or the cost of commercial electricity has to go up. the way things are today, you gain nothing by converting except the knowledge that you are having a slightly greener footprint in greenhouse gasses...

What Is The Best Way To Store Energy From A Solar Panel?
Say I Wanted To Power A Light On My House With A Solar Panel. But, I Want The Light To Be On When It'S Dark Out. Problem - The Solar Panel Will Not Be Generating Energy When It'S Dark Out. What Would Be A Good, Affordable Way To Get The Energy From The Solar Panel During The Day, Store It, And Then Use It When I Please? Thank You!!

Hey Barrett, all your answers here are correct about the battery. I'm guessing none of them have ever actually tried it. We have several systems that run on solar power. Our entire cabin runs on a 1.4 kw solar array and 1 kw turbine, it has batteries too. Here's what I suggest to people that might want to get started, start small, we did 14 years ago and it gave us the experience we needed.

If you get a pair of Trojan T-105 golf cart batteries, you will have a sizeable storage bank, you need two of them because they are 6 volts each. Then look for a panel on ebay that is optimized for 12 volt battery charging, most of them are. Nothing larger than 75 watts. This way you will not need a charge controller. A 75 watt panel optimized for 12 volt battery charging will have an open circuit voltage (Voc) of 18 volts. 75 divided by 18 volts gives you about 4 amps maximum current, less than 2% of the battery amp hour capacity (220 AH for golf cart batteries). This is below the trickle charge rate limit on lead acid batteries. Charge controllers are fine, but they cost more money, are more complication and are the first thing that fails.

We have two T-105's now, and a 53 watt panel. It runs all the LED strip lights under our cabinets, in the bedroom, aquarium, two reading LED lights, and it charges all our cell phones, ipods and ipad with the use of a car USB converter. Besides the fact we learned how all this works, we are already producing our own power, and the cool thing is all this stuff works, while offsetting some of our utility power, saving us a few dollars each month, but it also all works when the utility power is out. As long as we get a couple hours of sun every two or three days, the batteries never run out. We can even plug a portable car DVD player or portable radio into it during a power failure and watch movies in front of the fire while we charge our cell phones.

Check out some sources below, and consider getting a subscription to Home Power Magazine if you are really thinking about trying solar power someday, it's well worth the small price. If you really want to learn a lot in a short time, get to one of the energy fairs listed in the calendar section of Home Power, we did 15 years ago, and here we are today. Take care Barrett, Rudydoo

Who Are The Best Solar Power Installers In The Bay Area, Ca?
We Are Looking To Install Solar Panels On Our Home And Have No Idea Who To Trust In Terms Of Installation Or Systems.

I would get several bids, and evaluate from there. For me, the criteria would be how thorough and considerate they were. High-pressure sales tactics would be a deal breaker, such as an installer that said a price or discount was only valid on the spot.

I have seen a number of installs, and not seen one that was shabby, so would have to go with business practices and price, rather than quality.

My neighbor's brother got a fantastic deal, but I don't have the installer's name on hand. If you email me through my profile information, I could get the name for you. I don't know if you would get the same deal, though - it could have been because the installer felt guilty for all the delays.
