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 home owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, numerous home owners discover that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably minimize and even eliminate your electrical costs

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar 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 reduce your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity rates have gone up by approximately three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a company or homeowner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your property worth

Multiple research studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups 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 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 a key part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are crucial elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to operate properly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and improving business results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility business are infamous for their changing and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate just how much electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Have You Ever Thoght About Buying Solar Panels For Your Home?

If you're thinking of installing solar panels, there are several things to consider.

1. Where you live - solar insolation (energy available) varies dramatically by region. NREL has a calculator that can help predict performance and estimate how much money a PV installation can save.
http://rredc.nrel.gov/solar/codes_algs/P...

2. What incentives are available - each state has its own programs and often there are differences by utility. Everyone in the US can qualify for the 30% federal income tax credit (30% of the installation cost, up to a specified limit, can be deducted from your tax bill) and you can find the rest of them here:
http://www.dsireusa.org/

3. What equipment and services are available - depending on where you live, your choice of installers (and therefore of panels) may be pretty limited. If you're a member of a PUD or rural electric association, check with them since they may offer support. Otherwise, check local directory listings for PV installers. If you can't find any, try a national outfitter like Real Goods or Akeena. A good dealer/installer will help you deal with all of the necessary paperwork to claim incentive money and get connected to the grid.

4. What your power bill looks like - you'll see the most benefit if you're currently paying a lot for electricity. Those who only pay $.10 to $.15/kWh will see less benefit than those who pay $.20 to $.30/kWh. Also consider if your utility is planning to raise its rates in the near future.

5. Where you will put the panels - A South facing roof slope is optimal, unless you have room on the ground for a tracking PV or dish concentrator system. Your local installer can help you with this, but make sure to ask them about it as it makes a big difference.

Who Sells Lumeta Peel And Stick Solar Panels?
I Would Like To Know Who Sells These New &Quot;Peel And Stick&Quot; 380Wp Solar Panels, And About How Much Are They. So Far It Seems To Be Some &Quot;Top Secret&Quot; Answer And I Don'T Know Why. I Just Want To Know What The Price Per Panel Would Be.

They probably didn't start selling them by now.

When Did Government Programs Not Become Cost-Effective?
I Always Hear Everyone Talk About How Much This Would Cost Or How Much That Would Cost (Especially When It Comes To Alternative Energy.) I'm All For Switching To Renewable Energy And Enforcing New Building Codes To Retrofit Buildings With Solar Panels, Skylights, And Septic Tanks. I'm All For Large Commercial And Industrial Buildings Installing Skylights And Wind Turbines. I'm All For A Universal Health Care Plan And Rebuilding The Infrastructure Of Our Oil-Based Economy. I'm All For A Subsidized Higher Education System, Too. When I Tell People This They Always Say It's Going To Cost Money. Does Anyone Realize They Would Only Cost A Fraction Of What This War Has Cost Us? Why Don't I See Anybody Lamenting About This Pointless War That Will Never Be Won? Does Anybody Realize That This War Is What's Put Us In Such A Huge Economic Recession?

The track record of government efficiency is horrible. I am sure you have heard the stories of $25.00 screws etc. I believe the government has earned the reputation of being an inefficient bureaucracy.

The war did not contribute to the recession. The cause of the current recession is related to sub-prime lending. Specifically with Fannie Mae back in the late 1990's when we tried to manipulate free markets for social welfare - i.e. foolishly loaning money to people who did not have good credit.

Should I Get A Solar Panel Case For My Iphone?
Hey Guys, I Still Have My Iphone 4S, The Best Iphone In My Opinion, And I Really Love It, Just Sometimes Ill Go To Bed With 5% Of Battery Left And It'S Kind Of Annoying. Im Thinking Of Getting This One : Http://Www.Amazon.Com/Eton-Nsp300b-Rechargeable-Battery-Verizon/Dp/B005hmcno2/Ref=Sr_1_2?Ie=Utf8&Amp;Qid=1381369452&Amp;Sr=8-2&Amp;Keywords=Solar+Panel+Iphone+Case Or Should I Get A Cheapy Iphone Backup From Ebay? Http://Www.Ebay.Com/Itm/Power-Bank-External-Backup-Battery-Charger-Case-For-Iphone-4-4S-Black-Wmd24-/350895348492?Pt=Us_Cell_Phone_Pda_Cases&Amp;Hash=Item51b2fe1b0c Im Curious On The Solar Panel Device Because I Found A Old Solar Panel And Was Curious If You Can Charge An Iphone With One, Finding This Was Cool, And Plan On Going To California For 1 Month And It Could Be Useful If Their Isn'T A Power Outlet. ( Yes I Know It Would Take 10 Hour To Charge The Battery Fully )

To answer your question, yes, you can charge an iPhone with a solar panel. There are devices designed to even charge laptops and other similar power hungry products. When deciding which solar or portable charging device to purchase, the important thing to check is what the Milliamp-Hour (mAh) is. The higher the mAh, the longer it will last between charges, the heavier the battery may be, the longer it will take to charge, and in our experience testing these devices, it also means the faster it will charge.

It's also important to note that chargers designed for this purpose and with a higher mAh than the device being charged will not harm your device. Your iPhone 4S has a 1432 mAh, so if you purchase a Powertraveller Extreme (http://www.shopakari.com/PowerMonkey-Extreme-Portable-Solar-Charger-in-Black-PMEXT003.htm) with 9000 mAh, the Powertraveller would not harm your iPhone. Instead, your iPhone would charge at a slightly faster rate than smaller chargers and still have juice left to spare. This is an example of a higher end charger.

If you are looking for a more affordable solution, the Powertraveller Discovery (http://www.shopakari.com/PowerMonkey-Discovery-in-Silver-PMDV002.htm) still packs a good punch with 3500 mAh.

Who Created The First Solar Panel?
The First Solar Panel That Creates Energy From Uv Rays... Who Created It

No solar panel creates energy. The earliest solar panel of any form was probably the parabolic mirror as used, for example, to light the Olympic torch. That goes back to ancient times.
