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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing 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 significant, lots of homeowners find that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize or perhaps remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or house owner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your house value

Numerous studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated 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 an essential component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great method to reduce 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 common property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are very important parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to operate properly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of customer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility companies are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic math, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Electric Car Charging System...?
So, I'm Interested In Buying An Electric Car. Is There Such A Thing That Can Be Run By Solar Panels That I Can Charge An Electric Car With? If So, Wouldn't This Solve Our Clean Energy Issue For Transportation? I Would Assume It Is The Easiest Way To Go, Does This Exist?

An small car with an ordinary engine has maybe a 100 horsepower engine, which is 74,000 Watts. That allows freeway speeds.
A big solar panel puts out 100 Watts. You need 740 of them.
I am not sure it is the solution.

Can I Boil Water With 223.5 Watts?
I Have An Old Tv Satellite Dish And Hundreds Of One Inch Square Mirrors. Dish Radius=10.5 Inches. Pi R^2= 346.4 Inches^2. Given (1 Metre^2)1550 Inches^2 Receives 1Kw Of Solar Energy, The Dish Should Produce 223.5 Watts. If 1 Watt Is Approximately 3.41 Btu/H, Then The Dish Should Produce 762.14 Btu'S. Since A Btu Is The Amount Of Heat Required To Raise The Temperature Of One Pound Of Water By One Degree Fahrenheit, Can I Boil Water With This Dish?

The key to boiling water with any amount of energy would be to insulate the water container so that it gains more energy than it looses at 100C..

Advantages Of Using Solar Power To Heat Water Rather Than An Electric Immersion Heater?
Outline The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Using Solar Energy To Heat The Water Rather Than An A Immersion Heater. A Total Of 6 Marks. Can You Helpme Answer This For My Physics? Thankyouuu!:)X

The immersion heater used electricity which has probably been
produced by power stations that burn fossil fuels. The main advantage
of the solar heater is that it uses a renewable energy source rather
than fossil fuels. This means that no pollutants such as carbon
dioxide and sulfur dioxide are released by the combustion of fuels.
Carbon dioxide contributes to the greenhouse effect and sulphur
dioxide contributes to the formation of acid rain.
The main disadvantage of the solar heater is that it only heats the
water when daylight is available. On cloudy days the solar heater might
not produce sufficient hot water for the family.
The graph shows that the solar heater will only heat sufficient
water between April and September. This means that it must be
supplemented by another source of heat such as an immersion heater
during the rest of the year.

Pretty much what I wrote but with more detail. Just sum it up. :)x

What Does Going Green Have To Do With Global Warming?
This Is For My Science Fair Project. Can Anybody Tell Me What Does Going Green Have To Do With Global Warming?

OK - first, my understanding of the phrase "going green" is this: To attempt whenever possible to buy items that are produced in a way that does minimal harm to the natural environment. In addition, to purchase items that are grown or produced in a sustainable manner. This means that for example. Top soil is a limited resource in the sense that there is a limited amount of it and when used up it can take hundreds to thousands of years for nature to replenish it. So if we practice sustainable agriculture, we're growing things in a way that doesn't cause the top soil to be washed away nor does it deplete the top soil of its fertility.

Now, what does going green have to do with global warming. Global warming - at least in part - is being caused by increased amounts of fossil fuels being burned. Fossil fuels are coal, petroleum, natural gas, and oil shale. Coal is the worst offender of these as far as causing problems and just being overall horrible for the environment. When fossil fuels are burned, they release among other stuff - CO2 and Methane into the air. CO2 and Methane are "greenhouse gases" - they trap heat that has risen from the Earth's atmosphere around the Earth, instead of letting it exit into space. Now, if everything that was produced was made using human, animal power, or a non-polluting energy source like solar power or wind, producing things wouldn't be a problem. Of course that's not the case. Fossil fuels are burned in the production of almost every item we purchase or use. So, if we want to cut fossil fuel usage and so cut emissions, one thing we can do is to cut the amount of energy used to make these items. Buying partially or totally recycled items achieves this. Whether it is recycled plastic, glass, aluminum, or paper, significantly less energy is used to re-manufacture something from recycled material than to produce something from "virgin", (unused) material. One reason for this is the energy that would be used for mining or cutting the trees isn't needed. You already have the material.

This not only saves energy but cuts down on deforestation. This is important because deforestation - the clearing and cutting of trees - is a contributor to rising CO2 levels. The less trees that are cut down the less CO2 released into the atmosphere and the more CO2 removed - remember, plants remove CO2 from our air. So by buying recycled products we cut down on deforestation and cut down on energy usage, which in turn means cutting down on fossil fuel emissions.

Going green also refers to the idea of buying food locally whenever possible. Imagine the fuel consumption needed to ship tomatoes from Mexico or California to let's say - New York. That's a long way. What if instead of buying these tomatoes that were grown and shipped from many many miles away, you grew your own or went to a local market near your house where people sold locally grown vegetables. Buy doing this, you didn't contribute to global warming because your tomatoes weren't shipped from somewhere 800 miles away. Instead they were grown 20 miles away. Less emissions produced because alot less emissions are given off driving 20 miles versus 800. Remember, cars and trucks burn fossil fuels.

Finally, "going green" can mean making every effort to cut our energy usage personally. Turning off lights, unplugging cell phones, using mass transit whenever possible, and using energy wise appliances. Again, the whole key is to cut energy usage. Fossil fuel usage powers the majority of homes in this country and that means everything in the home. The less energy used the less fossil fuel burned. Hope that helps. Good luck!
