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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, many home owners discover that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce or even eliminate your electric expenses

Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can make up a large portion of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past ten years, residential electrical energy costs have gone up by an average of 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with changing capital, going solar likewise assists you better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Boost your house value

Several studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a terrific way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to run properly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and improving business results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary 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 utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility companies are well-known for their changing and undependable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can compute how much electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

If U Were President Of The Us (Or Elsewhere), What Would U Do (Or Not Do) About Global Warming?
This Is For A Paper For School. Any More Ideas? Comments? So Far, This Is What I Have: If I Were Elected President Of The U.S. In 2012, I Would Try To Reduce Greenhouse Emissions For The Good Of Mankind. The Main Goal Of My Campaign Would Be To Lower The Cost Of Alternative Energy Sources For The Public. First Of All, I Would Give Tax Incentives To Civilians Who Purchased Fuel Efficient Or Electric Cars, With The Electric Car Getting The Larger Incentive. I Would Also Give Tax Breaks And Additional Grants To Those Companies Who Researched Alternative Energy Methods, Such As Solar Panels, Hydro-Power, And Wind Mills. Furthermore, I Would Hire Scientists To Design And Build Me A Luxurious Solar Powered Jet For My International Travels. Thus, I Would Not Be Hypocritical. Also, Funding Public Awareness Of Energy Savings Would Be Imperative To My Campaign. The Main Focus Of This Campaign Would Be How Much Money A Person Can Save Each Year Through Simply Unplugging Items When They Aren’T In Use. Any Person, Business, Etcetera Would Be Given An Enormous Tax Incentive If They Only Updated Their Homes To Be More Energy Friendly; A Few Of These Upgrades Would Include Energy Efficient Windows, Garden Rooftops, And Light Colored Roofing. On The International Level, I Would Speak With Other Leaders And Convince Them To Follow My Lead For A Better Future. If I Were The President, I Would Strive To Decrease Our Impact On The Environment. Http://En.Cop15.Dk/News/View+News?Newsid=876

Since it is for your school I decided to answer you point by point but you aren't going to like it.

If I were elected president of the U.S. in 2012, I would try to reduce greenhouse emissions for the good of mankind. Is that really the job of the president. He is supposed to protect the constitution and our liberties. We expect the president to work in our interests.


The main goal of my campaign would be to lower the cost of alternative energy sources for the public. It is fine and dandy to lower the cost of something. To do that, you need to have a demand for the product. If there is a demand costs will go down. Without it, the costs would climb.

First of all, I would give tax incentives to civilians who purchased fuel efficient or electric cars, with the electric car getting the larger incentive. You give tax incentives. Are you going to reduce the size of the government to account for the those tax incentives or are you going to strap future generations with dept. If you plan to tax others more, than you are going to harm the economy. Typically what happens when the government gives out punishing taxes, they actually recieve less revenue as logic would dictate.

I would also give tax breaks and additional grants to those companies who researched alternative energy methods, such as solar panels, hydro-power, and wind mills. same comment as before.

Furthermore, I would hire scientists to design and build me a luxurious solar powered jet for my international travels. If they could desing solar powered jets that were economical, they would. Thus, I would not be hypocritical. Also, funding public awareness of energy savings would be imperative to my campaign. You can't just have people design something for you. The president shouldn't use other peoples money to design special things for him/her. That would be more fitting for a king or dictator.

The main focus of this campaign would be how much money a person can save each year through simply unplugging items when they aren’t in use. Once you start paying your energy bill, you have an incentive to conserve. Who wants to throw away their money. On the other hand, if I buy something such as TV, I expect to use it without the government trying to regulate its use.

Any person, business, etcetera would be given an enormous tax incentive if they only updated their homes to be more energy friendly; a few of these upgrades would include energy efficient windows, garden rooftops, and light colored roofing. Same answer as before. If you give tax incentives, you have to reduce government, increase borrowing, or increase taxes elsewhere. When you start paying your own utilities, you have an incentive to do those things anyway. I support this item except the roofing and garden rooftops but it has to be paid for. I have my garden. My roof is too dangerous and weak to garden on.


On the international level, I would speak with other leaders and convince them to follow my lead for a better future. Agreed. Every leader wants others to follow. The duty of our president is to convince others to follow for a beneficial future but to be sure to work in our interests.

If I were the president, I would strive to decrease our impact on the environment.
Everyone, Everyone, wants to decrease our impact. Noone supports dirty air or dirty water. There is a cost to every option however.

How Do Seasons Affect The Temperatures Of Oceans/Seas?
How Do Seasons Affect The Temperatures Of Oceans/Seas? (All Four Season). Please Give Full Descriptive Details On All Four Seasons Please!

The temperature of the sea is directly proportional to the insolation, i.e. how much solar energy is received per unit of surface. It can easily be calculated by the sine of the sun's elevation over the horizon. The latter is: 90 - the latitude +/- the sun's declination for that day of the year.

And this is the only aspect of the season being involved. What is winter in one hemisphere is summer in the other. and what is the longest, and therefore the hottest day at high latitude, comes twice a year between the tropics. This, only to say that the word: season, must be taken with a grain of salt.

The sea is taking solar energy in a different way that the earth because a) the sea is in constant movement, thus mixing and b) the sunlight goes down to some depth under the surface.

This is the reason it takes some time to see the sea water to come to its maximum temperature. How much, depends on the location and the size of the body of water but as a indication, you certainly know that the sun is highest in the northern hemisphere at the summer solstice, the 22th of June, but the hurricane season doesn't start before August, when the sea water temperature of the southern north Atlantic reaches 27 degrees centigrades.

And that's why a maritime climate sees a delay in the seasons, in relation to the actual sun height in the sky.

Silly Question For Home Schooling - How Do You Afford It?
First, I Would Like To Say I Am Totally Fascinated With Homeschooling. I Have Been Doing My Research, Just Started (Have A Few Years Before My First Son Hit School Age), And I Have The Myths Behind Me, But One Thing Still Stands Out... When I See How Homeschooling Keep Their Kids Social With All The Programs, Sports, Get Togethers, And Activities, How Do You Afford All That? I Know For Little League Sports, You Have To Buy A Lot Of Equipment And Then The Clothes. With Stuff Like Dance, You Have The Clothes, And All The Fancy Shoes. Going Out To The Museums And Moving Though Out The Community, All The Little Thing Like Tickets And Little Expenses Have To Add Up Especially With The Cost Of Living Going Up With Such Things Like Fuel And Energy. How Do You Do On One Income? Right Now, Me And My Wife Have Good Paying Jobs That Has Us On Some Really Nice Things That I Could See Being Able To Cut Out Stuff Like New Cars, Toys And Fancy Vacations, Not To Mention Going Out To Eat All The Time. I Just Can't See Us Getting By On One Income, At Least Right Now. I Wanted To Start With The Homeschool Crowd With This Question Because We Are Just Starting To Really Buy Off On The Independent Green Movement Where You Do More For Yourself. Finding The Local Csa, Couponing On Worthy Store Items, Self Growing Some Of The Veggies Fruits, Finding A Good Supply Of Free Range Meats, And Doing More Of Everything That We Can, And Not Outsource It So Much Including The Schooling. I Am Curious How You Can Afford All Those Really Nifty Activities. Once I Figure That, And I Am Confident That We Will, I Will Have Some Of Those Worries Off My Head. Of Course I Am Still Concerned About Our Jobs. I Make More Money Than My Wife, But My Company Has Crappy Benefits And High Health Care Cost Of Marginal Value. My Wife Is Doing Well, But She Has Stellar First-Class Healthcare Of Little Cost, Some Of The Best In The Country Because She Works In One Of The Largest Unions In The Country.

We cut corners everywhere that we can. We skip a lot of things that others consider necessities (no cable tv nor satellite tv, basic phone service only, eat out maybe once a year, etc.). We try to pinch pennies everywhere that we can (use solar energy to do most of our clothes drying, use the A/C and heat as little as possible, make do with older model cars that aren't gas guzzlers, don't buy many new clothes or gadgets, use cloth diapers, etc.). We don't try to keep up with the Joneses. Most Americans spend a great deal of money on things that they could do without, if their priorities were different....

As for homeschooling, we don't use fancy, pre-packaged curriculum that can cost a lot, but we use the library a lot and buy used materials when we do buy stuff. But the kids are learning a lot and are involved in a lot of things. We take advantage of a lot of free resources available in our community, such as attending great concerts put on every other month by a local volunteer orchestra, participating in some of the great programs at our local public library or at nature parks and such. We will usually buy a family membership to a museum or cultural institution each year and then take advantage of the membership frequently during the year, making our use of it relatively inexpensive over the course of a year. But a lot of what we do is inexpensive because it is done through our homeschooling community; we've gone on great field trips, participated in extremely low-cost martial arts classes, taken part in events such as "Science Day" and "World Day" and co-op classes, and more through our homeschool support groups. Often homeschoolers will find out about great opportunities and share them with other homeschoolers. Or one will arrange a club or activity or event and set it up so that others can participate at a minimal cost--especially if you reciprocate by organizing activities and sharing them with the community. Sometimes you can get great deals by participating in them at times when everyone else is in school; a piano teacher or coach or tutor may be willing to charge much less than the going rate during school hours, when he would otherwise have no business at all; and a lot of homeschooling parents (or older students) earn extra income by offering their services to other homeschoolers at a low rate during normal school hours. Anyway, I've found networking with other local homeschoolers to be an invaluable source of information on opportunities for the kids....

What Are Some Ways To Make Your House Greener?
I Am Writing A Paper On How To Make Your House Greener As In A Better Place For The Earth And Save Money. What Are Some Sujestions You Have. Right Now I Have Three Subtitles; Saving Electricity, Saving Water, And Recycling. What Are Some Good Things To Put Under These.

saving electricity:
using low consumption light bulbs.
using alternative energy sources to supplement the others , like solar power (can also be used for heating tough), wind power, hydroelectric power etc..

saving water, have a rain water collector (reservoir) and use a water filter/purifier, thus you save water.
we have one of those setups in our house, its simple and works very well.

recycling, well water used in the sink and such can be recycled to use to flush the toilet for example.

also we have a furnace used for heating , used the wood form 2 trees that needed to be chopped down cause they long since died and could have been dangerous.
with that wood we saved about 3500$ of heating, even if the wood is bought then you can still save up (at least here where gas-heating is very expensive)


besides that just don't waste anything, and use biodegradable materials.


for refference I participated (and still am) in an extensive design of a house ( purely academic I doubt we will ever have it built, whereas i can't send you the design..
i can give you a few details
for one
it had a beautiful garden with a waterfall was actually a part of the water filtration dispersion and sewage recycling system ( meaning it also watered the plants in the decorative garden and the lower lying vegetable garden)

the waterfall also provided a little energy by using a hydroelectric motor. which mostly powered the outdoor lights
also the house had quite large solar panels on the roof.
a natural water filtration system for the pool, and a water reservoir neatly built into the house,

large windows, and skylights offered natural light throughout the day, and an economic design of the house allowed more areas to be optimally light with just one light.

double layered isolation, and windows that can be simply set to let infrared light kept it warm during winter . and can be made totally opaque for privacy, or set to not allow some gamme of light through to keep the place from warming up in summer

it had an interior well equipped gym, and the machines where actually tied to dynamos to produce electricity when used. ( this is kinda prototyped as of now)
the electricity gained from it is substantial, but since its a pretty erratic source storage and use becomes a headache.

What R D Limitations Of A Wind Energy Farm?How Successful Will It Be?And Will It Be Effected By Global-Warming

Where there is wind, the wind farm is the way to go. But the wind doesn't blow 24/7 anywhere. So a good idea is to couple it with solar energy. This leaves you without power only during the dark hours when the wind doesn't blow.
