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 homeowner to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, many homeowners find that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically minimize or even remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce 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 lower your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy rates have gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're a business or homeowner with changing capital, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your expenses.

#4 Increase your house value

Multiple studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added 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 growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a terrific method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that opt to operate properly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and enhancing company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many house owners choose to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

As of 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 changing and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute how much electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Is There A Way To Charge Solar Panels Without Sunlight - I Know This Is A Strange Question But Please Humor Me?
I'M Talking About Very Small Solar Panels On A Couple Of Lighthouses Intended For The Garden, But I'M Keeping Them Inside. They Need To &Quot;Charge&Quot; So The Light Will Spin At Night. I Keep Them By The Window, But They'Re Still Not Getting Enough Sunlight. Keeping Them Outside Is Not An Option.

well you could set up a UV lamp or something.. but why not hook up a battery to keep it powered at night?

Trying To Charge A 12V Battery With A Solar Panel?
Im Trying To Charge A 12V Battery With A Solar Panel But I Only Have A 2 Inch By 2 Inch Space To Place A Solar Panel. Does Anyone Have Any Ideas

I don't think you can build or find a solar panel that would fit in such a small space, even if you were dealing with very low current. The only workaround I can think of would be to build a foldable solar panel that would deliver enough current to charge the battery. And attach one end of it to the box lid. But you'd have to be careful to make sure that folding and unfolding won't break the cells. Or the weight of it folded up won't break it.

FYI, I have a very small and compact 6V solar panel that delivers 340ma. And it takes up more than 2x2 inches.

Backup Batteries And Solar Power?
Hello All, Thanks For Stopping By, I Have Some Questions Regarding A Backup Battery, Specifically The Duracell Dpp-600Hd Powerpack 600 Jump Starter & Emergency Power Source With Radio: Http://Www.Amazon.Com/Duracell-Dpp-600Hd-Powerpack-Starter-Emergency/Dp/B000tkhmwk/Ref=Cm_Cmu_Pg_T I Was Thinking About Buying This, As Well As A Portable Solar Panel. Now For The Questions; Has Anyone Used This Battery, And If So What Are Your Results? Can Anyone Suggest A Good Quality Solar Panel To Use With This Battery? How Difficult Is Setting Up Other Power Sources To Use With These Types Of Battery? Specifically, If I Have A Dc Motor That I Have Rigged Up With A Bicycle As A Generator, Could This Store The Energy I Produce? Feel Free To Answer, Or Ask Questions About My Question If You Feel I Have Not Been Clear In My Inquiry. Thank You All!

Just get one of those 10 or 15 watt panels you should be able to get where you buy that pack.
It should charge it in around four good solar days.

So long as you can regualte the voltage to around 14V, and use a blocking diode to keep battery back feeding into the charger, you should be fine.

I don't have one of those packs, instead I have a straight 35Ah AGM cell with a 15 watt PV panel, charge controller, and 400W inverter. The system so far has mostly kept up with my nighly use (1/2 hr/night, around 100W CF lighting).

Why Are You Against Green Or Environmentalist Thinking?
I Am Just Trying To Understand Why Some People Are So Vehemently Opposed To Doing And Using &Quot;Green&Quot; Things That Help The Environment. I Just Don'T Understand Why... It Saves Money, It Saves The Environment And It Helps To Reduce Pollution. Regardless Of Weather Or Not You &Quot;Believe&Quot; In Global Warming (As If It Is A Religion) Do People Still Not See All Of The Positive Benefits Of Using Green Products And Building Green Leed Certified Homes And Buildings? I'M Really Confused And Would Like Real Answers From Real People Who Are Against Environmentalism. Thanks

It's not that I'm against the concept of being more 'green', it's just that I evaluate what is being proposed and make up my own mind.

For example, do you know that:

1. It takes almost as much energy to run a large scale ethanol plant as it produces?

2. There is going to be a huge shortage of corn and other grains because of the demand for ethanol?

3. "Mr. Green", Algore, claims to be carbon neutral, but has many homes that need to be lit, heated and cooled; drives around in gas guzzlers, flies in private air planes?

Solar Panel/Light For 10X10 Shed?
I'M Looking For A Led Light With A Solar Panel For My Shed So I Can See. Anyone Know Of One Or How To Make One?

might i make a suggestion?

how 'bout a skylight.
way cheaper.
works better (no components to break).
works for more of the day.

in fact, i have a 10" one that's bright enough that i often look for the light switch to turn it off.

Edit: If you get a light tunnel, get one with straight sides, not one that bends. You get more light through with fewer reflections. The "bendy" ones tend to reflect light back up, rather than down. The straight ones are just brighter.
