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 resident to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing 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 substantial, numerous home owners discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically decrease or perhaps eliminate your electrical expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a big portion of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#2 Make an excellent return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect versus unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with fluctuating cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home or business value

Several studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up 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 accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate variations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs 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 way to lower 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 common property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and improving organisation results.

#9 Start Saving 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.

Many property owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical power-- 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 Investment

The energy business are infamous for their varying and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Oil Heat Vs Gas Heat For The Home?
I Currently Have Oil But I'Ve Been Thinking About Switching To Gas. In A Perfect World We'D All Have Solar Panels And Wind Turbines. Gas Has To Be Cheaper And There Would Be No Waiting For The Oil Delivery. What Are The Pros And Cons Of Gas Heat? Would I Need A Whole New System Or Would They Convert The Furnace I Already Have? Thanks In Advance.

Natural gas is almost always cheaper and it is also possible to choose a gas furnace that is far more efficient than your existing oil-fire system. A good example of a highly efficient system is a condensing gas furnace (available as a boiler or as a forced-air unit). These systems use a sealed combustion system, meaning that they get combustion air directly from outside the home and have no portion of the system open to the indoor air. These systems greatly reduce the possibility of potentially deadly carbon monoxide contamination of the living space. They are available in efficiency ratings of 94%. By comparison, you oil-fired system is probably in the low 80% or even lower efficiency range.

Below is a link to an article about putting in a condensing gas furnace.

Avoid using a retrofit kit that turns an oil furnace into a natural gas burner. These systems are typically very inefficient. Any savings in initial installation will be quickly lost in much higher energy bills. Also, some gas utilities and some local building codes have forbidden these retrofit kits.

Whatever you do, get the new furnace sized for your home. Many heating contractors want to sell the biggest system they can, but an oversized unit runs very inefficiently and will waste a lot of energy, not to mention wasting money on the initial installation.

Are There Any Patents On Solar Thermal Energy?
I Know Solar Thermal Energy Is Efficient But I Still Need To Know More Can Anyone Please Help Me Out With A Few Questions? What Patents Are Put On Solar Thermal Energy? With One Or Two Bars In The Solar Energy Screen How Much Space Do You Think It May Heat Up And How Fast? Thank You

Nuclear Vs. Coal Fired Power Plant?
What Are The Advantages/Disadvantages Of A Town Being Powered By Either? I Have To Write A Composition On The Topic.

Nuclear is much cleaner and issues with supplies, wastes, proliferation or meltdowns can be addressed with thorium-based breeder reactors or molten salt designs. Heat produced from nuclear plants or other sources like wind, solar, coal, etc.. are also an issue with global warming. Japan's recent nuclear problems were largely due to poor site location...had the reactor sites been built another 30-40 feet higher, it would not have been a problem. More people die per year from coal-related health issues than all the nuclear plant issues ever have.

Mini-nuke reactors are being developed which are safer, cost less, can be buried in the ground and generate power for decades at or below coal-fired costs. One small reactor the size of a garden shed or garage can provide power for 20-25,000 homes.

Clean coal or carbon sequestration methods to produce biofuels could improve coal-fired issues.

Both have issues with generating heat which contributes to global warming.

School Project - Solar Heating Container?
My Son Has To Make A Solar Heating Container To Boil Water For A 5Th Grade Class Project. We Were Thinking Of Using A Metal Tin And Painting It With A Matte Black Paint. Should We Also Line The Inside Of A Shoebox With Aluminum Foil And Then Put The Black Tin Inside The Box Sort Of Like A Solar Oven? Let Me Know Any Suggestions You Might Have Without &Quot;Overdoing&Quot; It Since It Is A Small Class Project. Thanks!!

I would think that boiling water would be a physical impossibility because of the heat required to boil water. Lets think through this: It takes several minutes of high heat to boil water on a stove, much less with solar energy.


I know that camping stores sell a portable water heater for hikers. If it were me, I would buy one of these, and look to see how they made it. Then, using items that would be reasonably used in a science project, make your water heater.

Your best shot for success: When I was in High School, a teacher took out a parabolic mirror and held a 2x4 at the focus point. After about a minute, the wood caught on fire. It was the coolest thing I ever saw and was what threw me into engineering.

If you could make a highly polished mirror out of a satellite dish, you may have a way to make your heater. I think it would be the only way to focus the energy that you need to get it to work (kind of like a huge magnifying glass only 100 x stronger)

good luck
