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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of residents discover that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically reduce or even eliminate your electric costs

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.

#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity costs have actually gone up by approximately three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a service or house owner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar also helps you better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home value

Several studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic 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 element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common residential solar 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 corporate social duty are crucial components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that choose to run responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer getting choices, creating goodwill and improving business 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.

Numerous property owners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Solar Energy?
I Am Doing An Assignment And Need Help With These Questions: 1. Outline How It Works, Whet Type Of Energy Can This Be Used For? 2. How Is This Type Of Energy Renewed? 3. What Is The Cost Of Using This Type Of Energy? 4. What Are The Positive Aspects Of Using This Type Of Energy? 5. What Are The Negative Aspects Of Using This Resource/Type Of Energy? 6. How Is The Energy Stored For Later Use? Currently, What Is Keeping This Form Of Energy From Widespread Use? 7. When Is The Energy/Resource Expected To Be Easily Accessible To The General Public?

1- Solar energy is an energy form derived from sunlight. It can be utilized in both a "passive" and "active" sense. Passive examples would include using sunlight for interior lighting and radiant heating through construction designs. Active uses would include focusing radiant heat to use directly or as a heat source for more complex energy generation as well as converting sunlight's energy directly into electricity, a process referred to as photovoltaic.
2- Simply put, the sun does it's own thing and will be around for a long time.
3- Passive use in it's simplist form is free to inexpensive. Active systems can be much more expensive due to materials and production.
4- It's a "clean" energy form and does not contribute to pollution.
5- The downside of active systems is it's cost. This will decrease as use increases and better technology occurs.
6- In active systems energy can be stored in the form of heat such as a water tank or in batteries when sunlight is converted to electricity.
7- Now. The biggest hurdle for more complex systems is our current use of carbon base sources such as oil and coal which are relatively inexpensive but detrimental to our natual resources.

Where In Canada Is There Wind, Solar, Tidal And Fuel Cell Energy Being Produced?
I Just Need To Know The Place, Name Of The Industry Or Anything Like That For Each Of Those Sources Of Energy Being Produced In North America, But Preferably In Canada. It Could Be A Generating Station, A School, A House... Anything Like That Basically. It's For A Science Assignment And I'm Having A Bit Of Trouble Finding Information On Those And I Though I Could Get It Done Faster If I Had Some Help.

There are plenty of wind power thingies in southwestern Ontario, have a look. I think its called Epcor Wind Farm and Harrow Wind Farm

Solar Panel Math!?
I Will Be Honest I Am Not An Expert In Electricity And Solar Panels.I Am Planning On Getting A Solar Panels For My Place/Home. My Home Uses 66 Kwh Each Day, The Total Of Is 2099 Kwh Monthly. I Am Planning On Getting 20 Solar Panels Of Full Size Panels Up To 320 Watts Each. If I Get This Wrong Please Tell Me. For One Hour Of Power Produced You Would Get 6400 Watts Created. So If You Had 10 Hours Of Sun, You Would Get 64,000 Watts That Equal 64 Kwh. Since Every 1000 Watts Created Equals 1 Kwh. Is This Correct Or Wrong. Please Explain Everything In Detail. Thanks You Ron Http://Www.Ebay.Com/Itm/Solar-Panel-Mounting-Rack-7-Ft-Rails-For-2-Full-Size-Panels-Up-To-320W-X-2-/222168462084?Hash=Item33ba45b304:G:9Cgaaosw3ydvqrkw

Your math is correct.

Bear in mind that the panels produce 320 watts under maximum incident light striking the panels. The actual output can really only be measured by use of instruments. Cloudy days will reduce power output. Picking through textbooks looking for formulas is a waste because formulas rely on actual measured values. Unless you can measure the watt per square meter of incident light striking the panels, the formulas can only give you rough approximations

Some Info On Solar Energy?
For A Report Like How Is It Formed How Do We Get It How Much Do We Use Each Year

It is formed in the Sun as a result of nuclear fusion (mostly of hydrogen to form helium). This releases light that then travels to Earth. More information on the fusion processes in the Sun can be found below.

We collect solar energy in a number of ways. Indirectly, some light that reaches the Earth's surface is absorbed and heats the Earth. Without this heating, the Earth would be extremely cold. Photosynthesizers - bacteria and plants - absorb solar energy and store it as chemical energy. This capturing of solar energy directly or indirectly provides nearly all organisms with energy (ocean vent communities being notable exceptions). Finally, humans can purposefully capture solar energy for electricity production. This can be done by solar thermal plants, which use the Sun's light to heat a boiler and power a steam turbine, or by photovoltaics (solar panels), which directly generate current from photons.

If we ignore energy absorbed by the Earth, captured by photosynthesis, and used for non-electricity uses (such as evaporating water in salt ponds), installed solar capacity (in power, not energy) was about 8 gigawatts. This produced under 1% of world energy use. Solar capacity is growing, but not very quickly, so these numbers still give a good picture.

Is Solar Power Different From Solar Energy?
I Need To Do A Project On Somesort Of Energy And Decided To Do Solar Energy, I Wanted To Do How Solar Energy Is Used To Create Electricity And Power Home However Thats Pretty Much Solar Power, Would Solar Power Still Fit In To Energy, Would Doing A Project On Solar Power As An Energy Project Be Ok Or Are They Too Far Apart From Eachother?

power and energy are related to each other by the equation:

P = E / T

Where:

P = power
E = energy
T = time

So the amount of power you are using is the amount of energy you use divided by the time it takes to use it in. In other words, power is how fast the energy is coming in. You can rearrange that equation for energy and get:

E = P * T

Energy is the amount of power your using multiplied by the amount of time you're using it for. If you use 1 kilowatt of power for 1 hour, that's 1 kilowatt hour (kwh) of energy. kwh is the unit of energy the electric company uses when they bill you.

so yes, solar energy and solar power refer to the same thing, which is converting photons from the sun into electricity.
