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 dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, lots of residents discover that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize or even eliminate your electric costs

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy costs savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy rates have increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your house value

Multiple studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider 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 key element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, 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 nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a terrific way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of 3 to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to operate properly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing service results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many property owners choose to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility business are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute how much electrical power will be generated, and most significantly, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can I Synclonize Solar Power With Inverter?
I Want To Connect My Inverter To Solar Power System. Can Somebody Tell Me?

There are 2 distinct situations, each one is using a different type of inverter

1. For homes connected to the grid the inverter is connected to the solar panel on the DC side and the DC voltage and DC current rating should match. The inverter AC side is connected to the home and to the grid (power lines entering the home). The inverter synchronizes to the grid frequency (60 Hz in the USA). In essence the home is fed from a combination of the inverter power and grid power. View this link http://www.solar-energy-for-home.com/grid-tie-inverter.html
2. For off grid homes (not connected to power lines) the solar panel is connected through a charge controller to a bank of storage batteries. The batteries are connected to the DC side of the "pure sine inverter". The DC voltage rating and current rating of the battery and the inverter should match. The inverter has a self synchronization to AC correct frequency (60 Hz in the USA). View the link http://www.solar-energy-for-home.com/pure-sine-inverter.html

How Is Solar Energy Produced From The Sun ?
How It Works ? How Do The Solar Panels Create Solar Energy From The Sun ?

A photo-voltaic cell converts sunlight directly into electricity. The light from sunlight excites the electrons in the atoms directly. It is so simple very few people understand it as they assume it must be more complex than it seems.

Check out this web site however, it should explain it a lot better than I ever could.

Can Someone Explain How The Solar System Was Formed?

The short version:

There was a large cloud of rotating, interstellar gas. Something happened to give it some energy and begin to collapse in on itself. The very center was densest, and as the cloud collapsed it began to heat up- this formed the sun. The inner (terrestrial) planets, which includes Mercury through Mars, are relatively small and rocky because only rock could condense into solid at this close proximity to the sun, and most of the cloud was still gas and ice. The outer planets, Jupiter through Neptune, have the same rocky core that makes up the Terrestrial planets, but due to their location farther from the sun, ices can condense there as well. These planets grew, and as they grew, they sucked in more and more material, so that most of their bulk now is made of gases that they captured. Eventually, as the sun began to shine, all of the debris left over from planet formation was ejected out of the solar system. Gases were blown away by solar wind and rocks and ice balls (asteroids and comets) either were thrown out of the system, orbit at great distances, or crashed into planets. What's left is a pretty calm and clear area.

What Is Energy !!!!!!!?
I No What It Is And It Does But What Is Its Substance ? Like A Gas Also If Heat Is A Energy And Energy Cant Be Distroyed What Happens To It Dos The Heat Just Change Form Or Something ? In A Big Hurry Help !!!!

Some of the many forms that energy takes are:

Mechanical energy, which includes
- Potential energy, stored in a system.

- Kinetic energy, from the movement of matter.

Radiant or solar energy, which comes from the light and warmth of the sun.
Thermal energy, associated with the heat of an object.
Chemical energy, stored in the chemical bonds of molecules.
Electrical energy, associated with the movement of electrons.
Electromagnetic energy, associated with light waves (including radio waves, microwaves, x-rays, infrared waves).
Mass (or nuclear) energy, found in the nuclear structure of atoms.
One form of energy can be converted to another form. This transfer is based on the law of conservation of energy—one of the laws of thermodynamics.

Humans converted energy from one form to another when they lit the first fire. By burning wood, they released the chemical energy stored in the bonds of the wood molecules, generating thermal energy, or heat. Other examples? A battery generates electrons from chemical reactions, which are used to make electrical energy. A toaster takes electrical energy and converts it to heat. Your leg converts the chemical energy stored in your muscles into kinetic energy when you pedal a bicycle.

Sound is a form of kinetic energy. Molecules of air are vibrated, causing them to move in wave patterns. When these waves hit the eardrum, they make it vibrate too. This vibration energy is turned into electrical energy impulses, which your brain interprets as sound.

Many times, multiple conversions are involved. Consider nuclear power generation. Atoms in the nuclear fuel are split, releasing their nuclear (mass) energy and creating thermal energy. This heat energy is, in turn, captured in the form of steam and used to drive a turbine generator, creating kinetic energy. And, finally, this kinetic energy spins a magnetic field around a conductor, causing a current to flow—creating electrical energy.

To measure energy, we use the "heating value" of the fuel, which indicates how much of a certain fuel is converted to how much heat. Common units of energy are the calorie and Btu.

What Social, Economic, Political, Environmental, Cultural And Ethical Implications Has Solar Energy Had?
Negative And Positive =)

Hey Ginny, there are lots of beneficial implications to solar power, I'll list a few. To set one thing straight, panels do not have toxins in their manufacture, even though I keep reading answers at this website that they do. Photovoltiac panels, the ones that produce electricity are made up almost entirely of silicone, aluminum and acrylic. The other type, that heat water and air from the sun are made primarily of sheet metal, copper and glass, and have a type of alcohol called glycol running through them. It's the same type that we use to deice aircraft in the winter. There are lots of complaints about solar panels being produced from toxic chemicals, you might hear some, they are false.

If you invest properly in solar power today and take advantage of any grants and tax incentives, even if your electric rates do not go up as they are forecast too, you will get your money back over time, well within the lifetime of the equipment, and sooner if there is a rate increase in the future. There are also enviromental benefits. At one time there was an argument that a solar panel will never produce as much power as was used to manufacture it. First of all, this is not correct. The, "Embodied Energy," in a solar panel is earned back in 2 - 6 years, depending on the type panel, where the raw materials were shipped from, and how it was installed and used in the end. Most panels are warrantied to last at least 25 years, and most last much longer than that. But the argument is not important anyway. We have been living with electricity for over a century now, so it isn't going away anytime soon. The question is, "What is the best way to produce it?" If you build a panel, and put it along side a similar sized natural gas fired turbine generator for example, which earns back its embodied energy sooner? The answer is the gas turbine never does, because once you build it, ship it and install it, you now have to feed it natural gas for the rest of its life, so it keeps on digging itself a deeper and deeper embodied energy hole that it can never crawl out of. At least the panel has a chance to get even environmentally. So manufacturing and using solar panels in the end releases less pollution into our environment.

There are also mechanical and political benefits. We all know after the oil embargo of 1973, and the gulf war what it means for our country to rely on foreign oil. Wouldn't it be nice if we only shipped in 20% of our energy instead of 60% the next time something like that happens? Our home has been powered by the wind and sun for years now, but we still remain connected to the electric grid. Last year alone there were two power failures in our county that lasted about a half day each. In both cases, we were not aware of them because our solar array kept on feeding the house. It's difficult to put a price tag on something like that.

Beyond the mechanical, political and environmental benefits however, lies a less obvious benefit, the social benefit. Right now we pump oil out of the ground, and mine for coal. The process of getting those materials to market involves shipping, military escorts and other activities that use up a good portion of that energy as well as putting lives at risk. Jobs in solar power are higher tech than jobs in coal mining, oil drilling and shipping, and there are more of them. Using more solar power would require us to put more people to work, and increase our education base because the work involved requires certain skills. I would personally like to take all those people out of the coal mines, send them to school and put them to work building solar panels. Nobody would have to die again in one orf those dark holes in the ground trying to find food for our hungry power plants. They could work on a factory floor where they would not be exposed to coal dust, radon and other toxins and dangers. Most of our solar and wind resources are spread pretty evenly over the middle half of our globe, so everyone has access. This puts people in Bogota on a more equal footing with people in Boca Raton by giving them access to electricity, heat and clean water, and the education to use the solar resources that provide those things. Oil, coal and natural gas is generally piled up in a few places, such as Russia and the Middle East. This gives those countries and the richer governments that rule them more horse power in bargaining for the other resources of our planet. These are the things that wars are made of.

Andy mentions, "Enviromentalists," as people who do not want large solar arrays, or wind turbines in their back yards because of the birds and other environmental concerns. This could not be farther from the truth. I consider myself an environmentalist, and I do have a turbine in my backyard. The issues with birds is largely misunderstood. There was a farm in Northern California that began attracting rare raptors soon after is was constructed. In the first year of operation, 5% of all
