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 house owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, lots of property owners discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically reduce or even remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can make up a large part of your month-to-month expenses. 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 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#2 Make a great return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy costs have gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise assists you better projection and manage your expenses.

#4 Boost your home or business value

Multiple studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties 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 crucial element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs 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 tasks 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 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 significantly decrease that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will remove three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are important components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to run responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of customer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy companies are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most importantly, at what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The New Solar Technology Is Made By Improved Designs For The Solar Panels And Their Components?
What Is The New Solar Technology Is Made By Improved Designs For The Solar Panels And Their Components?

Recent solar cell improvements have included capturing more of the available solar radiation in cells, capturing the heat energy of the sun as well as the visible light energy and improving the general efficiency while lowering cost of the solar cells. Most of this is advanced work and may take some time to appear in the form of solar panels commercially available to the consumer.

Is It Possible To Have An Entire Rapid Transit System Run On Solar Panels And/Or Wind Turbines?
I Mean, Would They Be Able To Generate Enough Power For A Mid-Size Subway Or Metro Without Any Additional Input From Coal-Fired Or Gas-Fired Or Nuclear Plants?

Yes. Even large cities potentially could. The NYC subway system uses approximately 500 MW during peak usage. There are several wind farms with this kind of capacity already in existence. As for times when the wind isn't blowing or the sun isn't shining, energy storage systems like flywheels or pumped-storage. Or excess power generated at off-peak time could be sold to the main power grid and "bought back" when needed.

Has Anyone Used Solar Panels To Heat Their Pool, And What Are Your Comments About Them?
Trying To Decide Between A Wood Burner That Heats The Pool, Or Solar Panels. Has Anyone Had Any Experiences With Either And What Are Your Opinions?

Solar pool heating is an incredibly efficient method of heating the pool. You need to be sure to size it correctly, 1 panel isn't going to make any difference. Generally you need the equivalent of 70 - 100% of the pool surface in solar panels, depending on your location.

Here's a great article on solar pool heating from the US Department of Energy; http://www.energysavers.gov/your_home/wa...

Would You Consider Investing In Solar Panels Or Wind Turbines To Power Your Home? For What Reasons?

Hi Audi, yes, and if fact I have. Kano has a point, if you already have regular grid power, adding solar or wind now will most likely not save you any money. We do have grid power, and added the solar and wind power anyway. Here's the reason:

When we make a pot of coffee, or run the T.V. now, we do not demand any power from our power company. Our nearest powerplant is coal powered, so for enviromental reasons, we enjoy our sun and wind powered home. Some people grow tomatoes in their garden even though it's cheaper and easier to buy them at the store. Maybe they like the taste better, or prefer vegetables without chemical pesticides or other non natural features. We just grow electrons in our garden. There is also the fact that our home has not been without power for even a minute the last 15 years, hard to put a price on that. So yes, our power probably costs more than our neighbors, I'm fine with it.

Hydroelectric and biomass are fine technologies, but not suited for home use. Most good hydroelectric sites have already been built on. Unless you have a nice waterfall, or high volume fast moving stream nearby, or you are operating a large livestock farm, neither will be much use to you. We also collect rainwater from our homes downspouts, and preheat our domestic hot water with solar collectors, and our primary source of heat is wood, which is harvested from the 6 acre forest on our property.

People will have all kinds of reasons why you should not go solar. They don't work at night, well neither does ours, but my golf cart batteries take care of that just fine, and I might add they are 100% recycleable today. My favorite complaint is that a solar panel will never generate as much power as was used to manufacture it. First of all, this has been proven wrong by several studies. On average, the, "embodied energy," in a solar panel is regained in 2 to 5 years, depending on where the panel was installed in the end. But it doesn't matter. If you build a coal plant, and put it alongside a similar sized solar farm, which earns back its embodied energy faster? The answer is the coal plant never does. We forget that once you build the coal, or oil, or natural gas plant, you then have to feed it fuel, which it converts to electricity at some rate less than 100%, so it keeps digging itself a deeper hole that it can never crawl out of. At least a renewable energy source plant can one day get even environmentally. In the U.S. alone, there are over 100,000 homes and businesses using solar today, and the number grows daily. An article in Financial Times recently sited that today, 23 % of our worldwide grid power is now produced with renewable sources, compared to 28 % coal. In about 2 years renewables will overtake coal. The real reason is economics, power companies have discovered that once you build a wind farm, or solar thermal plant, you never have to buy fuel for it. There's more, but I think you get the point. Take care Audi, Rudydoo
