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 resident to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous residents find that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically lower or even remove your electric bills

With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power prices have gone up by an average of three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.

Lots of homeowners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Where Can I Buy New Sheet Like Solar Panel?
I Am Going To Be Buying House Within 3 Years And When I Do I Am Planning To Setup Solar Panels. Right Now Solar Panels Are Bulky Expensive And Not Even Efficient. But When I Watch Discover Or Science Channel They Show Me That There Are Very Cheap And Efficient Solar Panel That Is Like A Sheet Developed And Now Manufacturing. I Looked Up But I Could Not Find Find Where They Sell Them. Do Anyone Know They Sell The New Solar Panel? If Not When Do You Think It Will Be Sold To Consumers?

The sheet like solar panel you are describing is called Thin Film Photo Voltaics or TFPV for short. The Brunton Solaroll is a portable version of it. I believe a company called INNOVALIGHT is developing/manufacturing it. Unfortunately they do not seem to be selling it as of yet.

What Color Spectrum Does Solar Panels Except.?

Solar panels *accept* all incoming energy from the sunlight. They can only make use of specific wavelengths for electrical generation while the rest is either re-emitted or absorbed as heat energy.

Since most of the energy from the sun lies in the infrared, visible, and ultraviolet area of the Electromagnetic spectrum, photovoltaic cells (normal solar panels) are designed to convert these wavelengths over to electricity as efficiently as possible. (Commonly just absorb visible and ultraviolet light, as infrared is more difficult to absorb.)

Some wavelengths the solar panel cannot convert to electricity. These are either reflected like a mirror or absorbed as heat. An example: your arm in the sun. It appears tan because it reflects only certain orange/red pigments from the white sunlight, and warms up because it absorbs the blue and green colors. A white flower reflects ultraviolet light and visible light to attract more insects and stay cooler. A good solar panel appears "black" because it absorbs all of these different colors.

What Size Of Solar Panels Do I Need To Charge 3 12V Batteries?
I Need This For My Semi Truck

you need 3 panels, with 3 diodes that will limit the voltage to 12 volts most of the solar panels give 10 to 17 volts, if the day is very sunny a small panel will take 10 hours or more to charge
a big panel will take less time,
same with battery's if big , it will take longer you have to multiply the current amps per hour by the sunlight hours, that is the total current you will get

lets say you get 5 amps and 10 hours of light that is 50 amps most batteries take 55 amps,
if the battery is death i am sure they are not all the way down

3.5 amps panle

Harbor Freight Solar Panels ?
Any Opinion On Harbor Freight Solar Panels ?

Yes -- don't buy them.

They are low quality solar panels, and the e-z kit they sell produces barely enough power for a lightbulb.

The kit they commonly sell is a good child's science fair experiment/project, but do not expect to get your money's worth in solar power.

If you are attempting to self-teach yourself on solar panels, this might be a good starting point, if not also a little expensive.

But again, do not purchase Harbor Freight solar panels, or their e-z kit.

If you are serious about getting into solar panels, there are distributors who will gladly talk to you about what kind of solar panels you will need for a regular house (hint: it is actually a pretty big set of solar panels for even a low power usage home).

How Much Would It Cost To Place Solar Panels On 1,800 Square Feet Of Roof Space?
I Live In Southern California. About 1100 Square Feet Of My Home'S Roof Space Faces Toward South. Another 700 Square Feet Are From A Covered Porch Facing The Same Direction. Where Can I Get A Good Estimate Of The Cost Of Installing And Maintaining A Solar Panel System On My Roof? I Also Want To Know If There Are Any Government Rebates/Incentives Offered.

Once your indoor lighting has been installed you will be able to use the lighting both night and day. During the day you may not need it except on cloudy days. During the night you should have enough energy from the solar power to last you through the night. It is becoming the latest in lighting barns on farms as well because there is no wiring needed to get lighting out to the barn. just the cheapest solar panels and thats all.
