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 conditioner, washing clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically reduce or perhaps eliminate your electrical costs

Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, property electrical power prices have increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with changing money flow, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home value

Several research studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell more quickly 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 become more educated about solar, need for properties geared up 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 a crucial part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 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. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a great way to reduce 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 typical property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are very important parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that opt to run properly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of customer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners pick to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

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

With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Energy............................?
I Heard That Solar Energy Is Expensive , So Why People Think Its Better To Use It ? ...

Solar is not as expensive as it used to be. It will not make sense for every household today, but will for some. A lot of it depends on where a person lives, and what the next best alternative is.

For example, if someone has a cabin on 20 acres in the north woods, there will be lots of downed timber on the ground, and it might be best to heat water with a wood-fired stove. Not much sun in the woods.

On a 5000 square foot lot in Hawaii, fuels are scarce. Even natural gas would have to be imported. An electric water heater would be expensive, because electricity would also be generated mainly from imported fuels. In that case, a solar water heater would make abundant sense.

Solar electricity follows a similar argument. One thing to remember is that the economics for an individual homeowner or business are different from that for a power company. The electric company can have a huge turbine fired by coal, natural gas, or nuclear. While that may be cheaper than solar, by the time the electricity gets to someone's house, with distribution charges and profit added in, the electricity is expensive. Solar electricity may actually be cheaper than the power company from the homeowner's point of view. It is at our house, and in fact, we've had solar electricity for five years now.

How Bush/Mccain Promote The Wind, Geothermal And Solar Energy?
If They Are Controlled By The Oil Companies?

the last energy bill that gave tax breaks to oil companies was a complete PLAY ON WORDS as usual...

the bill gave huge tax incentives for oil companies to "explore alternative energy sources". Which means.... where can we poke more holes in the ground ?...it doesn't mean "alternative forms of energy"...thats just ridiculous...what benefit would there be for an oil company to find alternatives to oil ? NONE !

wake up people...y'all got bushwacked !

"alternative energy...err uhhummm !... sources".... very clever don't you think ?

Which Is Better Nuclear Of Solar Energy?
Plz Give Your Opinion And A Reason Why?

Both have their advantages and problems but solar is clearly the winner here.

1. Environmental long term effects - cyanide , arsenic and fairly nasty chemicals are used in the production of solar cells. While nearly inert when they are in place, the production of these energy units could be ALOT more friendly.

That said, Nuclear power - in this regard is messy all around, the mining, extraction, storage, use and disposal of radioactive materials make this the LONG term looser.

Millions if not billions of years from now, the radioactive substances we create today, will still be dangerous, long after any solar cells have been turned back into sand.

2. Power concentration - Solar - except in very special circumstances is pretty "low" power concentration, you can power a house, or a small industrial park, but not necessarily a foundry or a heavy manufacturing facility - since the power requirements are SO much higher for a materials manufacturing plant than say - the average house. In this way currently nuclear has ALOT of advantage.

In the future, (provided we venture beyond Earth), vast solar arrays in space, could provide power of gigantic proportions.

3. Location - Nuclear plants and Solar facilities are EXPENSIVE to built. But nuclear facilities require alot of regulation, maintenance and other activities far beyond that for a solar facility of equivalent size and capacity. Secondly, while solar and nuclear are not cheap, only solar really can scale to small use (personal power), or to industrial scales.

4. Safety - Different from environmental safety, the worst societal threat from solar power, is likely to be people stealing solar panels and arrays and using them or selling them on Ebay is ethically bad, with nuclear power plants, stealing the fuel and selling it on Ebay, is otherwise a national security problem because usually nuclear fuel is also good for (at least) making a "dirty" bomb.

5. Availability - Solar is great- when the sun is out, but turn the lights out and solar is just not cutting it. Nuclear is "always on" or reactor facilities are created in such a way that some part of the plant is "always" online. So battery technology may improve over time, but at the moment, solar suffers from what is called "intermittency", but what most normal folks call "night".

How Is Solar Energy Formed?
Doing A Project... How Is Solar Energy Formed???

Solar energy is the light and radiant heat from the Sun that powers Earth's climate and weather and sustains life. Since ancient times it has been harnessed for human use through a range of technologies. Solar radiation along with secondary solar resources such as wind and wave power, hydroelectricity and biomass account for over 99.97% of the available flow of renewable energy on Earth.

Solar energy technologies can provide daylighting and thermal comfort in passive buildings, potable water via distillation and disinfection, hot water and space heating, space cooling by absorption or vapor-compression refrigeration, thermal energy for cooking, high temperature process heat for industrial purposes, and electrical generation by thermal or photovoltaic means.

Would This Apply For A Company Building A Home With Solar Panels?
I Am Doing A Research Paper Regarding Building Energy Efficient Homes In New Jersey. In A Recent Article I Read: &Quot;For Solar Power, New Jersey Residents Could Save Almost Half The Cost Of Installing Solar Panels On Their Houses Thanks To The Plan. As Outlined By The Stimulus Package, There'S A 30 Percent Tax Credit Or Grant That Is Available To Anybody Who Installs Solar Panels Through The End Of 2010.&Quot; Does Anyone Know If This Would Apply To A Company Building A House With Solar Panels? In Other Words, If A Company Built Homes That Come With Solar Panels Arleady Installed, Could They Recieve Money From The Gov'T... (Or Tax Credit, Im Not Really Sure What That Is Though) Thanks And Please List Sources If You Have Any

This is an individual incentive. The benefit to a company is they are paid to add this value to the home resulting in increased revenue. It may apply to a new home buyer-buying a new solar panel equipped home,but this is not clear.
