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 house owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, many home owners find that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce and even remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big part of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill cost savings, the average American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the past ten years, domestic electrical power rates have increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with changing money flow, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home worth

Numerous studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for homes 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 a crucial element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are essential elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to run properly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer getting decisions, creating goodwill and improving service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many property owners select to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

As of 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 infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 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.

The Lease

  • Low, fixed payments each month
  • System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance
  • Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

  • We own the solar panel system
  • $0 down for installation
  • Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use

Purchase

  • Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
  • System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
  • Receive 30% federal tax credit
  • See a return on investment within 7-10 years

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.

General
How Plants Grow
Illinois

What
A problem each livestock producer faces is knowing how short they can graze or mow their pastures and still obtain maximum productivity during an extended period. Varying climatic conditions, growth habits of different plants and livestock preferences for different plants, compounds the problem. The time of the year and age of the plant also affect plant growth when leaves are removed.

Leaf Growth
Plants manufacture food in their leaves through the use of solar energy. Yet some people wrongfully assume plants produce food in their roots. Plants pull water and minerals from the soil, but the “food factory” is located above ground in the leaves and green stems.

Minerals from the soil make up about 5 percent of the solid material in plant roots, stems and leaves. Carbon, hydrogen and oxygen from the air and water make up most of the other 95 percent.

The leaves take in carbon dioxide from the air through tiny pores. Using solar energy, the leaves re-combine the carbon with oxygen and hydrogen to make sugars and starches. The sugars then combine with minerals from soil to make fibers, proteins, plant oils, and fats. The plant uses these sugars, starches, proteins, oils and fats to grow and reproduce.

The ability of perennial grasses, legumes, and forbs to recover quickly after grazing or mowing makes these plants extremely valuable for forage production and soil protection. Removing too many leaves decreases forage production and reduces the extent of the plant’s root system. Plants eventually die if overharvest of the leaves continues.

Leaf Removal and Growth
Root growth is closely related to forage production. Plants maintain optimum root vigor and growth when grazing or mowing during the growing season removes no more than half their leaves. When the plant’s food producing mechanism is reduced, leaf and root growth is reduced accordingly.

In all grasses, the volume of leaf removed has a direct effect on the growth of new roots. Roots are the vital supply lines of moisture and minerals to the leaves. Perennial plants store food in the roots after seasonal growth. They use these reserves to live while dormant and make the first new growth the next spring.

A grass plant produces twice the volume of leaves that it needs to complete its growth and remain productive. Generally, when up to 50 percent of the plant, by weight, is grazed, root growth continues unimpaired. When 60 to 90 percent of the plant is removed, 50 to 100 percent of the root growth is stopped, respectively.

Other Growth Factors
Other factors influence plant growth. For instance, light grazing is usually more beneficial to plants than several years of no grazing because heavy plant residue depresses growth of many grasses.

Growing Plants
All plants have growing points where new cells are developed. The growing points of grass are located just above the last completed joints of each stem. Early in the season, the growing joints are situated at the base of the plant. As the season progresses, the joints of most species elongate and push upward to produce a seed stalk, elevating the growing point to a vulnerable position. Removal of the growth point by grazing or mowing forces the plant to send up new leaves from the base of the plant and to start over as if spring had just started. Adequate rest periods must be planned to maintain plant vigor.

The growing points of trees, shrubs, and forbs are located on the outer tips of branches.

Reproduction
Grazing management schemes can be used to favor the more desirable plants during their reproductive period. Plants reproduce in several ways. Such as:

Seed. All annuals, and many perennials, reproduce primarily from seed. Warm-season plants usually produce seed during late summer or fall. Cool-season plants produce seed near the end of their maximum growth period in midsummer.

Stolons. Some plants reproduce by stolons, which are prostrate stems, or above ground runners. The stolons grow on the surface of the soil, occasionally tagging down roots at the joints to secure the stolon and to begin a new plant. Bermuda grass reproduces by stolons.

Rhizomes. Several grasses reproduce by rhizomes, which are underground stems. Most sideoats grama strains have rhizomes. Big bluestem, Indian grass, and switchgrass have short rhizomes while smooth brome grass and Kentucky Bluegrass have rhizomes that are quite extensive.

Mixed methods. Many plants reproduce by stolons or rhizomes as well as by seed. Buffalo grass produces seed and stolons. Most sideoats grama plants produce seed and rhizomes. Common bermuda grass uses all three methods of reproduction.

Five factors determine what types of soil form on Earth and critters that live in the soil are part of the amazing soil forming process:

Parent Material- the primary material from which the soil is formed. Soil parent material could be bedrock, organic material, an old soil surface, or a deposit from water, wind, glaciers, volcanoes, or material moving down a slope. Bedrock is broken down as water, wind, or other weathering processes wear away mineral particles from rocks.

Organisms- Soil is also formed as organic matter (such as leaves and dead plants) decomposes and as critters living in the soil change the chemistry of soil. Each of these parts work together to make soil that plants can grow well in. Fertile soils are those that have enough Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), and Potassium (K), along with other nutrients that plants take up.

Topography- The location of a soil on a landscape can affect how the climatic processes impact it. Soils at the bottom of a hill will get more water than soils on the slopes, and soils on the slopes that directly face the sun will be drier than soils on slopes that do not. Also, mineral accumulations, plant nutrients, type of vegetation, vegetation growth, erosion, and water drainage are dependent on topographic relief.

Climate- heat, rain, ice, snow, wind, sunshine and other environmental forces break down the parent material and affect how fast or slow soil formation processes go.

Time- All of the above factors assert themselves over time, often hundreds or thousands of years.

Soil and plants play a very important part in the survival of humans and animals. Soil protects plant roots from exposure to the Sun's heat at Earth's surface, soil filters pollution that comes from rain and water runoff from farms. Soil is used to build with and on, and soil is what plants need to grow and be supported while growing. Plants are not only used for food but are also used to make fabrics and dyes, medicines and beauty products, fragrances, rubber and building materials, just to name a few.

The most important function of plants involves photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is a process in which all plants and algae as well as certain types of photosynthetic bacteria produce their own food, and in doing so take in carbon dioxide (CO2) and then release oxygen (O2) into Earth's atmosphere, which many living species on Earth need to survive.

As the world seems to grow continually smaller, the global marketplace grows increasingly more important. The U.S. is the world's leading agricultural exporter and the third largest food importer. In addition to providing an abundant food supply for domestic consumption, crops from 40 percent of U.S. farm acreage are exported. Agricultural exports generate employment, income, and purchasing power in both the farm and non-farm sectors. Each dollar received from agricultural exports generates an extra $1.40 in supporting activities, generating almost a million full-time jobs in the United States. Exports account for 15 percent of overall farm production and about $30 billion in added gross national product.

U.S. companies sell thousands of products in more than 150 overseas markets each year. These markets include Japan, the European Union, Canada, Mexico, and Asian countries. In many of these countries, urbanization and industrialization have caused a decline in agriculture’s traditional economic role, thus increasing the dependence on imports. Numerous reasons exist for this increased demand for American products.

Why Is Electrical Energy Neither Renewable Or Nonrenewable?
Please Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Because electricity is not an energy source but rather a means to transport it. All electrical power generation ultimately relies on some other power source, whether it be fossil fuel, hydroelectric, solar, wind, nuclear, etc, to provide power to turn the generators.

Help With Nuclear Energy.?
How Is Nuclear Energy Stronger Than Renewable?

Nuclear Pros and Cons
PROS
!. Fission is the most energy for the least fuel with current technology.
2. Less fuel means less waste, and the waste is all accounted for, not released into the atmosphere to become someone else's problem, like fossil fuels.
3. Uranium is readily available, very common in the earth's crust (about the same as tin)
4. Economical - operating cost about the same as coal, fuel cost is a much smaller percentage of the total, therefore less susceptible to price fluctuations.
5. Reliable - Nuclear power plants have very high capacity factors, Much higher than solar or wind
6. No combustion, no Co, CO2 or SO2 released.
7. Creates more high paying, skilled jobs.
8. Reduce dependence on foreign oil/ fuel. Uranium available domestically and in oceans.
9. High temperature reactors could produce Hydrogen as well as electricity.
10. Fantastic safety record.
11, Does not require back-up and storage facilities like solar and wind.
12. More economical than solar per Mw produced.
13. Much smaller footprint, takes up less land than Solar or wind.

CONS
1. Irrational fear of all things nuclear.
2. High cost to build and license, large initial investment for long term pay back.
3. Publicly accepted high level storage facility not domestically available.
4. Reprocessing facility not domestically available.
4. High cost of personnel.
5. Security concerns, proliferation and terrorism.
Nuclear power, I believe is the best, safest, most reliable, current technology to provide energy. The plants operating now are safe and the new designs are even safer.
Building 100's of new nuclear power plants would improve the economy, reduce or eliminate dependence on foreign oil, create jobs, reduce pollution, and provide for future technological advancement.
I have been working with nuclear power for about 30 years, I would be glad to have a Nuclear power plant or high level waste disposal facility in my backyard. My family and I live in a home within 10 miles of a nuclear power plant. (where I work) I have a great understanding of the risks involved and am completely comfortable with a plant "in my backyard".
Using Chernobyl as a reason not to build is like saying because of the Hindenburg I will never fly in a commercial airliner.
Nuclear power has the smallest environmental impact of any current energy production method per unit of energy produced. One fuel pellet about the size of a pencil eraser produces the same energy as about 1 ton of coal, and if reprocessed 2/3 of what’s left can be reclaimed. Nuclear power is our best option for reliable, environmentally friendly, base-load electrical power.

What Is The Solar System?
And Explain The Effect Of Space Bodies On Earth And How These Influnce Human Life

The solar system is made up of the sun and anything which the suns energy "bounds". That is anything that orbits the sun or orbits something which orbits the sun (like the moon) or orbits something which orbits something which... you get the idea.

Earth is affected by the sun's gravity most strongly. It is also affected by the moon's gravity, in addition to the gravity of the other planets. Gravity is responsible for the seasons (the earth is on a tilt, so as it orbits, the north pole is directed towards the sun and then away from the sun). The sun and moon combined pull at the water in the seas and oceans and cause tides. I don't really know their influence on human life really though.

The sun also heats the earth, important for human existence. It also provides light, again, important for human existence (it would be hard to grow plants to eat without it and we need the sun's light to synthesise different vitamins and so on).

There are probably more space bodies which affect the earth, but that's a good start.

I Install Solar Panels, Am I More Qualified For Energy Secretary, If Sarah Palan Is Vp?
Shes Governor For 1 Year, With 600,000 People To Govern. I Install Solar Panels, All Day.If We Go By These Standards, How Come I Dont Qualify For Energy Secretary? I Think I Am At Least Qualified For Energy Secretary, If Shes Qualified For Vp, Dont You Think?

I don't know you, so maybe you are qualified to be Energy Secretary, I can't say.

Although I'm in favor of Obama, I think attacking Palin's experience is a waste of time. The President is the leader, the VP doesn't matter much unless you think it likely that the president won't serve out a full term. I suspect few voters of either party, Republican or Democratic, think that way about their own candidate when it comes right down to voting.

A fresh outsider could be beneficial, actually. If Palin's positions weren't so staunchly conservative, she would make a good addition to [potential] president Obama's cabinet. She would be great for tort reform. Everybody stop suing each other over silly stuff, and use common sense, like Alaskans. She would be a disaster for any kind of environmental protection post. The population density is so low there, people can just burn their trash, and the environment absorbs it. It would be hard to understand what would happen if everyone did it in a heavily populated area.
