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 everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothing, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous residents find that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically decrease or even eliminate your electrical costs

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of money.

#2 Make a great return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill savings, the average American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy rates have increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home or business value

Multiple research studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes 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 key component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are important parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and improving service results.

#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.

Many house owners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- 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 energy companies are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can compute how much electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

According To Temperature Readings The Planet Can Warm And Cool By 1C Within A Year ... ?
... So What Does This Say About How We Measure Present And Past Temperatures? Does The Earth'S Average Temperature Really Fluctuate This Much In A Short Time Period Or Is It More Humanlike And Maintains A Certain Average Temperature? Does Satellite Measurements Reflect This Type Of Fluctuation When Measuring 'Energy In' And 'Energy Out'? Http://Www.Drroyspencer.Com/Latest-Global-Temperatures/ Co2 Has Been Likened To A Virus Or Even A Poison In Our Atmosphere.

Of course, the half degree or whatever that we've seen in the last 50 years is UNPRECIDENTED!
But then the temperature swings up and down that far annually.

What it means is what reasonable people have known all along--"changes" that have been reported are inside any reasonable margin of error.

I really wonder if we have warmed at all since the 1930s.

Since Even Germans Are Giving Up On Solar Pwr Do You Think We Can Stop Using Tax Money To Buy Solar Companies?
...And Wondering Why We Are Losing The Money? Germany Once Prided Itself On Being The “Photovoltaic World Champion”, Doling Out Generous Subsidies—Totaling More Than $130 Billion, According To Research From Germany’S Ruhr University—To Citizens To Invest In Solar Energy. But Now The German Government Is Vowing To Cut The Subsidies Sooner Than Planned And To Phase Out Support Over The Next Five Years. What Went Wrong? Subsidizing Green Technology Is Affordable Only If It Is Done In Tiny, Tokenistic Amounts. Using The Government’S Generous Subsidies, Germans Installed 7.5 Gigawatts Of Photovoltaic Capacity Last Year, More Than Double What The Government Had Deemed “Acceptable.” It Is Estimated That This Increase Alone Will Lead To A $260 Hike In The Average Consumer’S Annual Power Bill. Http://Www.Slate.Com/Articles/News_And_Politics/Project_Syndicate/2012/02/Why_Germany_Is_Phasing_Out_Its_Solar_Power_Subsidies_.Html?Wpisrc=Twitter_Socialflow Yea We'Ve Been Telling You Green Jobs Idiots This For Years Now. Like We Have Said Over And Over Let The Free Market Perfect The Technology And If It Ever Becomes Viable We Wont Have To Subsidize It, Ppl Will Just Buy It Because It Makes Financial Sense.

Solar energy will probably still have an important role in the future, when it can be made economically viable without subsidies.

Real Alternatives To Coal Power Plant?
Anyone Know Any Real Solutions Or Alternative Energy To The Coal Power Plants? If You Have And Answer Can You Give Me The Location City, Country Of Where It Is Located At, So I Can Look Into It

As of now the only thing that can replace coal is nuclear power. Wind, tide, solar, geothermal, and hydroelectric do not produce enough power to meet current demands. If they did work then you would see renewable energy in widespread use. There is a reason you don't see "green" clean energy producing facilities everywhere.

Nothing can produce power as cheap as coal. It is numbers game like everything else in the world. Renewable energy has a long way to go before it works. Renewable energy is a joke until technology improves. I am a liberal Democrat and I support groups like Green Peace and The Sierra Club. These groups are unrealistic dreamers when it comes to energy needs.

Coal is dirty and severely damages the environment, but we need it. In fact we need more coal powered energy plants in America. Coal will save the United States once again just like it has done in the past.

The truth about coal: It is wicked bad for the environment, but the alternative (using oil) is much worse. Do your own research you will and you will see both sides of the green vs. coal argument have valid points.

Did you know a home in the Northern United States can supply all of its heating needs with $130 in coal for an entire winter? Due to inefficient power transmission infrastructure in America it would coast $3000 to do this with electricity.

Don't believe the hype coal is GOOD for America. I am a very liberal democrat and I side with Greenpeace on most issues.

If Solar Power Is Such A Great Energy Source,Why Do These Companies Need Taxpayer Money?

It is a great source of power but.........the materials and technology required to manufacture the cells is expensive and extensive. Not to mention, in terms of cost vs. time of productivity, their short lifespan.

Right now coal, nuclear and hydro can operate cheaper in an 8 year timespan. Average life of a solar cell is 10. So basically you are trying to profit off of 2 years of free power over a 10 year period.

Not a very good investment if you ask me. But hey, I'll throw some money at LDK, TSL and YGE when the Greenies start wetting their little panties........

5% return off of LDK and 8% off of JASO this year.

Is It True We Can`T Make A Solar Panel Without Oil.?

that is true.

Solar panels are either amorphous glass or plastic. You need some sort of energy to make either product. Theoretically you can use other energy sources to make the glass, but most of the time it is oil based energy. Plastic always requires some sort of petrochemical.
