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 a/c unit, cleaning clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing 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 substantial, lots of homeowners find that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically reduce or perhaps eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a large portion of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.

#2 Make an excellent return on your investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs cost savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power rates have increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or house owner with changing cash flow, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your house worth

Multiple research studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for properties equipped with solar 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 part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are essential components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired 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.
