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 air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. 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 substantial, lots of residents find that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably decrease and even remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce 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 lower your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power rates have increased by an average of three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with changing capital, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your expenses.

#4 Boost your home or business worth

Multiple studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for homes 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 attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to operate properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer buying choices, creating goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous homeowners choose to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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 energy business are well-known for their changing and undependable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can You Store Solar Energy?
I'M Considering Buying Say A Little Kit From Costco But Want To Know The Rundown On How To Keep The Energy And How Long It Lasts? Can You Keep Filling Up Batteries With It And Stockpile Reserves In Case We Experience Rolling Power Outages? Thanks Any Info Helps

Solar power is usually stored in a battery system. The amount of power that can be stored is determined by the type and sized of the batteries installed.

http://www.installeco.com/solar-power/

How long that power can be stored is affected by "decay" - the discharge of power over time without usage. Newer batteries decay at a lower rate than older ones.

Will You Consider Buying A Solar Water Heater For Your House To Save The Environment? Why Or Why Not?

YES, I live in the SW..Arizona and our water system collects enough heat that you can completely turn off and drain your water heater for maybe four or five months out of the year and I see no rerason why you can not collect enough energy from the sun in winter to do you good for a few months too. You only need water to be 90F or so you do not need 160F unless you need to steril;ize something and you can get hw for that by bvoiling it on the stove. It makes common sense to me to use cheapest forms of energy possible.

Solar Energy Questions?
How Do We Use The Resource And How We Acquire The Resource On Solar Energy? Identify Advantages And Disadvantages Of The Solar Energy

Solar energy is captured by solar arrays which use large surface areas to either act as a heat ex-changer or generate electricity using photo-voltaic cells which convert solar radiation into direct current electricity using semiconductors by exciting materials and having them emit free electrons leading to a flow of electrons i.e. electricity.
Using solar energy to generate electricity is very uneconomical due to the large amount of materials needed to provide large enough arrays to generate a substantial amount of electricity the also produce nothing or very little with dark/ foggy/cloudy/rainy ect.
The surface area needed for effective application could be put to better use by building a nuclear power plant (since they are much more energy dense one 1000MWe nuke plant(est 100 acres)=20,000 acres or 31.25 square miles of solar arrays) and using the rest of the land that would previously be used for solar as agricultural, residential, or industrial purposes.

Why Are Wind And Solar Industries Receiving 55 Times More Government Subsidies Than Petroleum Energy Industry?
U.S. Taxpayer Subsidies Per Megawatt Hour (Mwh) Of Energy For Petroleum-Based Energy Was 44 Cents.... Yes..... 44 Pennies. Subsidy Per Mwh Of Energy For Wind/Solar Was 24 Dollars!! ... Not A Typo.... 24 Bucks$$!!! U.S. Taxpayers Are Being Bilked To Provide Welfare For A So-Called Renewable Energy Source That Is In The End..... Unreliable, Costly To Wildlife And The Environment, And Proven To Be Unhealthy For Human Health. When Is This Mad, Senseless Waste Of Hard-Earned Taxpayer'S Money Going To Stop?? Http://Www.Eia.Doe.Gov/Oiaf/Servicerpt/Subsidy2/Pdf/Chap5.Pdf

Why? Because wind and solar currently require subsidies to be competitive with coal and natural gas.

If at some point in the near future, wind and solar can become competitive without subsidies, they will gradually become a larger fraction of our electrical generating capacity.

If wind and solar can't become competitive, the subsidies will eventually become a sort of economic Ponzi scheme.

Solar Energy? Can People Use ..?
Can People Use Solar Energy All The Time? How Can We Solve This Problem?

No, "people" can not use solar energy all the time. "People" obviously is inclusive of those who happen to live in the extreme southern or northern hemisphere where during the winter months the sun will not rise for months. There are no batteries that will store enough electricity for these months of darkness. So no, solar power can not be used by all "people" at all times.
