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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, many home owners discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically minimize or perhaps eliminate your electric costs

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big part of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense cost savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy rates have gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise assists you better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home or business value

Several studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are necessary components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that pick to operate responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and improving business outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners pick to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 well-known for their changing and undependable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired 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.

How Many Solar Power Plants Increase Co2 If You Account For The Trees That Are Cut Down To Install The Plant?
Shouldn'T These Be Limited To Deserts And Rooftops? Http://Www.Powerlineblog.Com/Archives/2016/05/Why-Solar-Energy-Is-Bad-For-The-Environment.Php

This is a good reasonable question. We see that supposedly Al Gore offsets his luxurious CO2 generating lifestyle by planting trees. He issues 'carbon credits' based upon planting of trees. Many nincompoops on this site tell us that the wood industry chops down 'x' amount of acres every day and this is bad, never admitting the fact that these lumber companies plant 3 to 5 trees for everyone that is cut down.

Added to that is the fact that the SCOTUS has decreed by law that CO2 is a pollutant and that trees gobble up this 'pollutant' so that all these 'Saviors of the World' can righteously point the finger at the sane people of the world and say that we, the common people who use wood products, are criminals for denying these CO2 destroyers life on this planet.

But when these same 'Saviors' chop down trees for any reason, they deem it a good thing, because they have the love of the Earth, they are the ones who hold all the wisdom, they are only out for the betterment of the EARTH itself. Furthermore they hate mankind, who is the destroyer of this MOTHER EARTH. Beside, most likely they are getting paid by Soros, and to them he is above Christ and just a smidgen below Al Gore.

Quote by Ingrid Newkirk, a former PETA President: “The extinction of Homo Sapiens would mean survival for millions, if not billions, of Earth-dwelling species. Phasing out the human race will solve every problem on Earth - social and environmental.”

So, as you can see by the many answers here, that many deem the destruction of a tree because it just got in the way of the environmentalist master plan is a wonderful thing. It is not the chopping down of the tree that is a crime but who is chopping down the tree that makes it a crime.

So in direct answer to your question we may have to turn to the great GURU Bob Dylan when he sings in part:

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man ?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand ?
Yes, how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Yes that answer is blowin' in the wind. Or maybe it is in Al Gore's deep secret vault. Or maybe it was destroyed because it was on Hillary's server.

In truth, the world would be better off with God given trees than with Gore inspired solar plants. If you would also take into account all the fossil fuel that it took to produce, transport, erect and maintain those power panels, it would have an overall effect of more CO2 than if you left the trees standing.

Will Solar Panels Truly Save Us Money As In 'Free'?
I Want To Know If Anyone Owns A Solar Panel(S) For Their Homes. What Did It Cost To Install? Are You Seriously Getting 'Free' Electricity?

You never get your money back when purchasing solar panels. The overall cost versus how many years before they go bad rarely justifies the expense. However, with tax subsities to make up the difference it becomes more and more realistic to purchase solar and wind these days. Some states and countries make out like bandits on the original purchase. In germany (for example) the government pays 50% of the cost up front.

How Does A Solar Panel Work?
I Need To Know How A Solar Panel Works And There Are Barley Any Sites That Say. Please Help!

The heart of a typical PV module is composed of silicon solar cells. Silicon has the unique property of becoming excited when struck by photons of electromagnetic radiation in the visible light through infrared range. The resultant charge can be captured in the form of potential energy by surface coating. The visible side of the cell resides an antireflection coating to retain light photons and effectively capture the resultant energy. Each cell is composed of silicon which is doped with Phosphorus on the visible surface and Boron on the concealed side. Phosphorus has an extra electron and Boron has an electron “hole”. As photons of light strike the solar cell, the charged surface excites the extra Phosphorus electron, which naturally tries to find an electron “hole” to return to a lower state of charge. By “laying” metal micro-ribbons across the surface of the PV cell completing the circuit to the reverse side, an electric potential is created. Whenever the open loop circuit of the PV is closed, then direct current is created.

By combining multiple solar cells in series in the form of a complete solar module, the sum creates a higher voltage potential. A typical solar module is comprised of 60 to 72 cells connected in series, with cells sandwiched between a top layer of tempered glass and laminate polymer back surface. The clear glass surface protects the cell from scratching and weather/hail damage. An aluminum frame is mechanically fastened around the edge of the module for added strength.

Why Don't All Public Buildings Have Solar Panels?
They May Not Power The Building Entirely, But They Would At Least Create A Petro-Free Hot Water Source Or Lighten The Electric Load. This Would Save Money/Planet, Would It Not? What's Up With This?

I can't remember the source for this, but someone did figure out that if we took about 300,000 acres in the Southwest U.S. and installed solar panels on them, that would be enough to power the entire U.S. Kinda silly, but....

Retrofitting solar to an existing building can be super expensive. It's much more cost effective to design it in. Check out the link below. It has been done and done successfully, though. The Knickerbocker Arena (think it is the Pepsi Center now) in Albany, NY has solar on the roof. One of New York City's public libraries has solar retrofitted ont he roof. All new municipal buildings in California must use alternatives to help power them.

The real answer with solar is two-fold I think:

1) Make it so that homeowners can more easily get systems installed on their homes and tied into the grid. Think what over 1 million roofs of solar might do.

2) Get more commercial solar onto the grid. My local utility has four solar farms and adding four more. One is built right near a large oil-burning power plant. I but $5 green credits every month from them to help them fund more solar installs.

Oh, by the way, do not confuse solar electricity generation with solar hot water. They are completely different technologies. Solar hot water works better when the weather gets hot, solar panels work better the colder it gets.
