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 daily life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of homeowners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically decrease or perhaps remove your electric bills

Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility costs and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.

#2 Make an excellent return on your investment

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

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous ten years, domestic electrical power rates have actually increased by an average of three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with rising and falling money flow, going solar also assists you much better forecast and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your home value

Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic 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 part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost changes in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional 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 jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that 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 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that select to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many property owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility business are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can determine how much electrical power will be generated, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least 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.

The Lease

  • Low, fixed payments each month
  • System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance
  • Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

  • We own the solar panel system
  • $0 down for installation
  • Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use

Purchase

  • Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
  • System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
  • Receive 30% federal tax credit
  • See a return on investment within 7-10 years

What happens when the contract for my lease is finished?

We provide our customers with a few different options for when their lease contract is up. Customers can upgrade their equipment to the newest solar technology available, extend the agreement, or have the panels removed at no cost.

What is the warranty?

The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.

How Does Nuclear Energy Affect The Environment?

I lived in St. Lucie county, Florida. Florida Power and Light has a nuke plant there, on Hutchinson Island on route a1a. The only thing I ever heard of that could be taken as an environment risk was...
1. The water around the outlets was a bit warmer, and in the winter there, a manatee or two would get stuck there. (They shut down the plant and rescue them asap when that happens)
2. The water coming out, was fresh water, and it was released into salty water. It does have an effect on the very local fish population, but it's unclear if they just moved, or died. (No one knows, I checked with fish and wildlife there)
Just so you know, the waste is stored on site. There is no risk of it "getting out".

Now, let's look at the good things.
The nuke plant emits nothing but steam. Coal fired power plants, emit CO2, and traces of mercury.
They can significantly reduce our dependence on foreign oil imports.
Your electricity rates won't go up and down, as the supply of fuel is fixed, unlike natural gas, and oil prices that jump at the whim of traders.

Those are a couple of good things. However, I favor solar and wind energy myself. Big opposition to these by folks stuck on making money from oil, gas, and coal!

Compare Traditional Methods Of Making Electricity Versus Renewable Energy Sources. Is One Method Better & Why?
I Believe That Renewable Energy Sources Is A Better Method, But It Is More Expensive. If You Could Also Provide Statistics/Facts I Would Appreciate It!

Wind power is actually very cheap, but the only problem is it can't provide baseload power. It only provides power when the wind is blowing. However, it can provide power at 7-10 cents per kWh, competetive with coal.
http://climateprogress.org/2008/05/17/wi...

Geothermal is also looking extremely promising, and can also potentially provide affordable power. It can provide power 24/7 as well (baseload power).
http://www.ecogeek.org/content/view/2199...
http://climateprogress.org/2008/09/27/us...

Concentrated solar thermal is another great option, and can store energy to be used as baseload. It can be potentially as cheap as coal.
http://www.ecogeek.org/content/view/2205/83/
http://climateprogress.org/2008/07/28/solar-baseload-update/

There are others like solar photovoltaic, tidal, etc.

There's no question that renewable energy is preferable to traditional (mainly coal) energy, because it's clean and the fuel source will never run out.

How Is Solar Energy Harnessed Or Gathered?

1. Photovoltaics - You point them up, and the photons, using quantum burrito meals, produce DC. Then it goes to an inverter, and then nobody gives a ****.

2. Concentrated photovoltaics - You get like a lens to focus more sunlight onto the same area of solar panel. A bit more effective, slightly cheaper per watt. Same thing, in the end.

3. Heat engines - A set of mirrors focuses sunlight at a container of molten salt or something, and the salt acts as a heat resovoir to power a heat engine, like a Stirling engine. This is only currently for power plants.

I Need To No What Conventional And Alternative Energy Is?
I Have This Huge Geography Test Tomorrow And I Was Away Alot Of The Time For This Class So I Didnt Get Any Of The Notes I Need So I Need To No Everything Possiable About The Following : Conventional Energy Alternative Energy Sustainabilty Hydrogen Energy Water Anything Will Help! Thanks!

I'll give you one to get you started.

Alternative energy is energy derived from sources that do not harm the environment or deplete the Earth's natural resources. Typical sources include wind and solar. Nuclear power is usually excluded from this definition.
