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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, many residents discover that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce and even remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of money.

#2 Make a terrific return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power prices have increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or house owner with changing capital, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your home worth

Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with 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 jobs in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are necessary elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing business results.

#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.

Many house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar company 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 Financial investment

The energy companies are notorious for their varying and unreliable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute just how much electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

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.

What happens when the contract for my lease is finished?

We provide our customers with a few different options for when their lease contract is up. Customers can upgrade their equipment to the newest solar technology available, extend the agreement, or have the panels removed at no cost.

What is the warranty?

The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.

Frequently Asked Questions

How To Run Appliances Directly From A Solar Panel.?
I Am Looking At A Way To Have 110 Volts Ac Power Directly From A Solar Panel In Order To Run Appliances.

Solar panels put out DC. It must be stored and converted to AC before it can be used.

When Will Oil Production Peak?
Which Year Did Oil Production Peak? After Peak Production, Oil Productions Drops Until Production Can'T Keep Up With Demand. If Africa And Asia Are Going To Need More Oil And Energy In This Century, What Alternatives Are There To Oil? When Will The Last Barrel Of Oil Be Produced? Will Synthetic Oil Become Cheap Enough In The Near Future?

Oil will likely be replaced for most uses long before it runs out. Only a decade ago, the commonly accepted estimate of total oil on the planet was only 3 trillion barrels. http://www.chevron.com/deliveringenergy/...

Changes in engineering technology, combined with a paradigm shift in geologic understanding of how oil migrates from source rocks, have probably rendered that number very much obsolete. If you look at what Chevron said in that link, you will see they qualified that statement by saying "conventional" oil. Unconventional oil is already a game-changer and is likely to double those numbers. So, maybe the number is 4 Trillion barrels.

However, As technology for drilling and reservoir production improves, the paradigm may shift again and there is no way to estimate the recovery factors that might exist with unknown technology.

Also consider that these numbers do not include oil that is considered unrecoverable. Since with current technology oil production often results in less than 50% of a known reserve being produced, that means if you want to know how much oil exists, including oil that we may never recover, the number is probably 8 to 12 Trillion barrels. That leaves a lot of room for improvement using better technology and better geology.

If the world actually has 8-12 Trillion barrels (which is not out of the realm of possibilities) then it is likely that oil will be around for several centuries, depending mostly on how difficult it is to obtain, and how much alternative technology develops that can produce energy or basic hydrocarbon molecules (since at least 20% of the oil we use is not used for energy). Oil will likely be available long after the demand for oil has dropped significantly.

Right now synthetic oil still takes too much energy to make to be economic. Part of the reason for this is that oil is essentially solar energy. A small amount of geothermal energy, combined with a large amount of solar energy, are what make oil in nature. That all takes large geographic areas and relatively long periods of time to create oil from plankton. Oil does not take millions of years to form- it can be made in the lab in hours, and has formed in nature in documented cases in as little as 5,000 years. But, making oil synthetically, or even growing it with algae, still is not economic. There may very well be a time when the price of oil rises enough that it does make sense to make it synthetically.

Another part of this question that you may not have considered is that natural gas may replace many of the uses of oil in the future. Natural gas is much more abundant than oil, and if methods could ever be developed to recover methane clathrates, which is methane frozen into ice that is found in the ocean floor on most of the continental shelves and slopes, there would be a huge amount of this resource available. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methane_cla...

The limits of oil production have never really been geologic, but instead have always been political and economic. Large parts of the world remain unexplored for oil, either because of the extreme difficulty of accessing regions because of political boundaries, or war zones, or climate. Antarctica has always been off limits by political decree, the Arctic has had both political issues over who owns it and climate issues. Areas like the California coast which has billions of barrels in known resources, or the Eastern Gulf of Mexico where Florida has kept the industry from exploring, and other issues like countries that have nationalized their oil industry, preventing anyone else from exploring, and countries that simply have such unstable governments that it is impossible to do business with them. An example of the latter is that right now tankers loaded with oil from Kurdistan cannot sell their oil and unload because no one recognizes the government of Kurdistan, so there is a dispute over who owns it. South China Sea is another hotly disputed area and no one knows how those reserves will ever be developed if the countries there cannot decide who owns it. Large parts of Russia are still unexplored, and no one is looking and probably won't until there is a change in geopolitics. East Africa is only recently being explored. Even in well explored, frequently drilled areas there are often deeper formations that have not been tested. There is lots of room for exploration and new discovery.

I would disagree that solar energy is effectively unlimited, because it is intermittent (no sun at night), dilute, and not portable. Oil is actually a more ideal form of solar energy storage created by nature. The reason oil is such a cheap source of energy: it is solar energy stored by the process of photosynthesis, and heated with nuclear energy (geothermal) from the Earth. We are taking advantage of a resource that has been stored by natural processes.

Need Advice On Solar Panels Business?
I Live In A Country Where There Is Sun (Very Hot Weather) All Round Year, Plenty Of Money And Stable Conditions (Politically Economically...Etc), Cheap Labor, No Taxes (≪5% Tariff) However, Energy Bills Are Quite Expensive. I Think Solar Panel Business (Sales, Distribution And Installation) Would Be Extremely Profitable. Where Do I Start From?

The first thing you need to do is find a place to get them so you can sell them or install them. You did not say what part of the world you live in but I am sure is some paperwork t file there. You will need some money to buy product with or find someone that will bankroll it for you.

More of a 1, 2, 3 order
1 find the product
2 find the money
3 do the paper work.
and
4 Get to work.

If you do the above you will find the next step.

Solar Energy?
What Do People In The Us Use Solar Energy For The Most? And Which State In The Us Uses The Most Solar Energy? Please Tell Me If You Find A Website Including This Information Too.

Most domestic users of solar energy use the system solely to heat their hot water (for DHW tap water, and home heating), and that removes much of the home's fuel costs.
Obviously it's quite expensive to install the solar panels and related components, so the money savings only become evident over time.

I Have An Idea For A Science-Fiction Story?
In The Future, The Bare Necessities Of Life Aren’T A Guarantee. They’Re A Privilege. Everything Is Borrowed From The Government—Even The Very Air You Breathe. Only Those Who Can Pay To Breathe Live Long. But If You Can’T Afford Your Own Breath, You Die. When His Son Gets Into A Fight At School, A Poor Man Reminds His Son That To Remain Calm Is A Survival Necessity. He Arrives Home To See His Asthmatic Daughter Having Breathing Problems, A Significant Financial Issue For His Family. His Wife Pressures Him To Do Something. When He Visits His Dying Mother In A Hospital, The Man Selfishly Euthanizes Her In Order To Inherit Her Saved-Up Breaths Sooner. Haunted By His Actions, The Man Has A Panic Attack, But Reminds Himself That He Has To Remain Calm—It’S A Survival Necessity.

I really like it, but my issue would be to come up with a realistic way for the government to monitor oxygen.

Some questions to think about to improve the story:
-Why isn't there enough oxygen?
-What is used as currency? If it's oxygen, would that be too similar to the movie "In Time", where time is used as a currency
-What does it mean for things like cars, trees, solar energy
