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, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of homeowners find that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce and even remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill savings, the average American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity prices have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a service or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your house value

Several studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly 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 properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall 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 have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that pick to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer getting choices, creating goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of house owners select to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar 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.

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility business are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Financing

What are the various payment options?

We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

Electrical Help Needed For Project!?
Im Doing A Science Prjoect Where Im Creatinga Solar Cellphone. I Have A 3.6V Battery In The Phone. What Amp, V , Wat Or Mah Does My Solar Panel Need To Be So It Works And Doesnt Blow Up In My Face. And Wut Amp Diode Would I Need, Anyhelp Or Ideas Of Actual Construction Would Help. Im Getting Confused Alot . -Thanks

for your specific application, you should take an ammeter and put it inline with the battery. You can then see what current is drawn from the battery while the cell phone operates. once you now this, you know what current your solar cells would need to produce, so that the cell phone could run 100% off solar power.

If you are not requiring that the phone to operate solely off the solar cell, then you can consider the average current consumption of the cell phone. you'll notice that while the phone is on, but not in a call, it does not consume much current, but every 10 seconds or so, you will see a much larger current maybe a few hundred milliamps, this is the phone making signal check to track the cell towers, etc. You can predictably choose a solar array that provides enough energy to maintain the average consumption of the cell phone, so that if you are not making calls the solar cell will recharge the battery, but when in calls, the cell phone will use the battery mostly as a reservoir.

The voltage you want to be slightly greater then the battery voltage, you will want to you a power diode, so that there is no backward current discharge into the solar array. Keep in mind that you will loose some voltage due to the diode.

For example: with a 3.7 V li-ion you could add 0.7 V for the diode, and use a solar cell that would provide around 4.5-5 volts. This will leave a little room for low sunlight conditions, and provide the voltage bias to charge the battery.

Solar cells are usually rated in open circuit voltage, which is the maximum voltage provided by a solar cell with no load, and short circuit current which is the maximum current provided when the solar cell is shorted (usually through an ammeter).

Are Solar Panel Batteries Hazardous?
What Are The Contents Of The Batteries For Solar Panel Systems Made Up Of? Are They Safe To Keep Indoors? What Would They Release If There Ever Was A Fire?

yes. It depends on the type of battery, but they all are toxic, I think.
often they contain lead and certainly acid. Don't just throw them away

Where Can I Find Solar Panels And How To Install Them Inexpensively?
I Already Change All The Lightbulbs In My Apartment For Energy Saving Ones. I Drive Less So My Car Doens'T Emit That Much. I Would Like To Know More About Solar Panels

We just installed 2 solar collectors a year ago, and it wasn't cheap. That's the downside. On a postive note, over a year's time, we've cut our natural gas bill in half (the solar collectors are heating our water). Looking at it that way, they pay for themselves. To answer your first question, we obtained ours from a friend. If you live in an environmentally retarded area, it might be difficult to find them. There are venues online where you can purchase them. Try Amazon, ebay...or just Google it.

Solar Panels Are Cheap In China-How Long Will It Last?
The Chinese Made Solar Panels Are Cheap. I Know That There Are High Tariffs That Make Them Unprofitable To Import To The Us, But The Chinese Companies Are Shifting Production To Other Countries To Avoid The Tariff. How Many Years Might That Last?

Considering the cost of solar panels in the US and UK, they are not relatively cheap but you can rest assure that they work perfectly. I'm not saying that there are no cheap versions but consider the country in which the product came.
