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 conditioner, washing clothing, viewing 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 ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many residents discover that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower or perhaps remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary 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 lower your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power expense savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power costs have increased by approximately three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or homeowner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar also helps you better projection and manage your expenses.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Multiple research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost 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 generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a terrific way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are very important parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 business are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can determine just how much electricity will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Is Desert Sand Or Soda Lime A Raw Material For Solar Panel, Who Makes Equipmnt For Processing The Raw Material?
My Interest Is To Identify And Develop A Possibility Of Having Africa To Contribute At A Stage In The Development Of Alternative Energy Solutions

Sand can be used to make the wafers for solar. However there is currently a glut of silicon on the market and it is very very cheap. The set up on a facility with clean rooms and the mterials you need would run into the many millions. Good luck.

What Are Solar Panels Made Of And What Are There Advantages And Disadvantages?

They're made of wafers of crystalline silicon, and attached wires.
They make pollution free electricity.
Dis- not so good under cloudy skies, expensive.

What Is The Difference Between Photovoltaic Panels And Solar Panels?

Solar panels collect energy from the sun and then provide it to a system that typically concentrates it.

Solar energy comes to us in the form of heat and light. Photovoltaic panels take the light energy from the sun and convert it to electricity. Although the maximum efficiency is around 42% in the lab most commercial models you will see are from 8 to 22% efficient. Adding collectors together concentrates this energy into usable amounts.

Solar thermal panels are from 60 to 80% efficient. They come in many different types and collect the heat energy from the sun. That heat may then be stored in some form of thermal mass where it becomes concentrated sufficiently to be used. Solar thermal panels can be used to heat a medium. This can be a phase change material, air, or water. Solar thermal air panels are cheap to make and offer a quick pay back period. Solar thermal panels for some heating and hot water systems circulate water. Vacuum tube collectors are solar thermal "panels" that may heat water directly or a phase change materials. They can operate better in cloudy and colder weather with more efficiency. Air and water panels are often called "flat panels" as a way to contrast them with vacuum tube collectors.

Solar thermal panels often lead to some form of energy storage called thermal mass (water tanks, phase change materials, masonry walls and rocks.) Photovoltaic panels make electricity that is stored in batteries, used or sent to the general grid.

Panels are only one way to collect solar thermal energy. Other types of "collectors" are used commercially and are often called simply solar "concentrators." Some are called parabolic trough collectors and parabolic dish collectors.

Ive Been Thinking About Getting Solar Panels For My Home. Is It A Good Idea I Want To Hear From You Guys Who?
Have Them On Your Home. My House Is About 1700 Square Feet. About How Much Would It Coast Me To Go Completely Solar? I Have Ac, Water Heater, Couple Of Televisions,Refrigerator And All That Good Stuff.

We looked into that about 6 yrs ago when we built our home. The cost was astronomical. If I recall, something in the order of $90,000 for our 2200 sq ft ranch to go 80% off-the-grid.

I like the idea of 'going green', but "green" often costs double, or even triple. You won't be "saving money" for at least 30+ years, and that's only if the costs of the panels remains stable. I would hope they would have declined by now, but they haven't moved much in the last 10 years.

I read a report in Scientific American about a year or so ago that suggested the cost to produce panels now is less then $500 per panel. So why the 1000+% markup? Answer: Because it's "green".
