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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous home owners find that the benefit, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly decrease or perhaps remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a large part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a terrific return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- 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 electricity bill savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity costs have gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with fluctuating cash circulation, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your residential or commercial property value

Numerous studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal property solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are important elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners select to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical power-- 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 Financial investment

The energy business are well-known for their changing and undependable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple math, we can determine how much electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Financing

What are the various payment options?

Frequently Asked Questions

I Need Help With A Science Fair Project...How Would I Conduct An Experiment Comparing Wind Vs. Solar Energy?
Please Help Me! I'M Overwhelmed And Don'T Know About This Topic. I Can'T Change It, It'S Too Late. No One In The Family Will Help Me And Say To Figure It Out Myself. How Can I Compare It Or Even Find Out How Much Energy It Produces? How Will I Get It To Conduct Energy And How Will I Build It? Please Help Me!!!!!!!

Try Youtube, or Google search, but to build a model You need Solar cells, a sm. generator, a little windmill, or fan blades and a fan to blow on it and a bright light to shine on the cell, then get a volt meter, and test each one to see which one puts out the most volts, Good luck,,

Radio Shack may have some of those items

Liberals, Are You Going To Start Demanding Free Government Carbon Offset Credits If Obama Makes Workers Pay?
If Obama Makes Everyone Pay Carbon Offset Credits...Will Liberals Try To Make Them Part Of The Welfare Package Or Will They Stop Driving And Using Air Conditioning?

I think that it is a mute point. I think that carbon offset credits are useless - feel good measures that will allow polluters to continue to pollute while simultaneously advertising how much they are concerned for the environment.. "Just Look at our Carbon Offset Credits People!".

Plus, it is useless to harm the US economy by enacting draconian environmental laws - while China and India pollute like crazy.

Basically the only thing that can save us is the displacement of fossil fuels by new technology. So if any efforts are made, it needs to be in the arena of research into technologies that can actually work just as well as fossil fuels. I think this eventually happen because fossil fuels power heat engines.. and heat engines are terribly inefficient. about 8 Billion Quads of solar energy hit the earth each year - the entire human race uses about 400 Quads of energy per year.. do the math. Our future is solar. But it is debatable whether we will survive long enough to see a solar utopia.

For me, the issue isn't fossil fuels - but National Security. I think it is just stupid to put all of our eggs into one energy basket. We are heavily dependent on places like Saudi Arabia and Venezuela for oil. And drilling more US oil is only going to make a TINY bump in our import vs domestic production capacity. In a few years the world is going to hit the wall of a peak in the worlds ability to supply petroleum. Prices are going to go thru the roof again. And with the spike in energy price - comes a decrease in profitability of our businesses and corporations = another recession. So it is just insanely stupid to continue relying so much on petroleum. That is why the US military is spending big bucks via DARPA to transform the military into a biofueled military machine. Because unlike republicans and democrats.. it's a matter of life or death for the military to be able to fuel their tanks and planes.

We've built a civilization around fossil fuels - and none of that is going to change on a personal level - regardless of how green you think you are, or how SUV lovin conservative you think you are. We exist in a world created and fueled by petroleum - the only thing that can change that fact is something better than petroleum. The technology is coming, but will it arrive in time?

What Are The Advantages Of Using Solar Energy?
Pretty Much Sums It Up Up There ^^ Lol

Solar energy is renewable unlike the convential sources which would exhaust sooner rather than later. Hence most believe that solar energy is the future of the world. However one cannot always rely on them, as the perfect equipments to trap them
I think that the advantages are that it will let the world be alive in a half a century!
Advantage: renewable, non-polluting, free except for capital expenses.

Do You Think We Need A Moon Colony?

Do we need one? We could live without one just fine.

Would a lunar colony be of value to us? Certainly.

One of the big advantages of a lunar colony is the fact that you have a lot of unfiltered sunlight that we could harness with solar panels and direct that energy down to Earth via microwave relay. It could turn out to be a cheap source of energy for us.

That said I feel that it needs to be a private organization that does this as we have enough problems here in the US that our government needs to fix first before we start screwing about with lunar colonies.

Is It Possible To Have A Solar House Without Giving Up Anything?
I Myself Work In The It Industry. I Use All Kinds Of Devices For Work And I Can'T Get Around It. My Family (4) Is The Same Way With Their Consumption. I *Know* That I Can Curb My Consumption And Increase My Efficiency But I'M Curious Otherwise... Realisticly, Can Someone Run A Modern Day Home With Computers/Appliances/Home Theater And Such Using Nothing More Than Solar Or Alternative Fuel Sorces? I Don'T Mean Off The &Quot;Grid&Quot; But More Like Zero Net. Are Solar Homes Built With This In Mind Nowadays? If I Invest In Solar Panels Et Al Will I Be Disapointed In The Result? How Much Can I Expect To Spend To Make It Work Right? Thanks!

You CAN install enough solar panels in a grid tied system to be a net zero consumer, or even a net producer, averaged over time. That is only averaged over time because you will of course be a net user of grid power at night, and maybe on some cloudy winter days. The only problem is that even in a very sunny area of the country you will probably need at least $50,000 worth of solar panels and inverters to make that much power. More if your home is not highly energy efficient.
