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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, lots of home owners find that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce or even eliminate your electrical expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn a great return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power 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 Secure against rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy costs have gone up by approximately 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your property value

Numerous studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer more rapidly 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 homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price variations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater 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 minimize 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 normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that pick to run responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer acquiring decisions, developing 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 cash down.

Numerous property owners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple math, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be created, and most significantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Financing

Frequently Asked Questions

Passive Solar Energy?
I Am Doing A Powerpoint And One Of The Questions Is Is Your Energy Form (Passive Solar Energy) Subsidized? I Looked It Up, But I Guess I Don'T Really Understand What That Means. Please Help

I think what it means is "Is it effective?" Do you get enough juice to effectively register it in total energy output?
Is it a ten by ten panel or is it a 30x20?

Why Is Hydrogen A Better Fuel Source Than What We Use Today?
I'M Doing A Research Paper On Hydrogen And Im Not Even Sure That It Is Better Than What We Use Today But If It Is, Can You Please Tell Me Why ? Thanks :)

In its current state, hydrogen is not a better fuel source than oil to power cars. The primary problems are in production and storage of hydrogen. Hydrogen cannot be drilled for the way that methane and oil can. Much of it is synthesized by what is called the water-gas shift reaction. This reaction is shown below.

CO + H2O --> CO2 + H2

The source of carbon monoxide for this is often steam reforming of hydrocarbons such as oil. The other primary source is electrolysis of water. Electrolysis requires the generation of electricity, which usually is generated from hydrocarbons like oil and coal anyway.

Additionally, storage is a huge issue. Gasoline, diesel, and most of the other component hydrocarbons that make up crude oil are really nifty in that they are liquid at room temperature. This means that they are relatively dense fuels and have a high energy to volume ratio. The result of this is that you can take a 20 gallon tank of gasoline with the tank being made out of relatively cheap materials and use it to drive a car for 300-400 miles. On the other hand, hydrogen is a gas at room temperature, and thus does not have the same energy to volume ratio as liquid hydrocarbons do. It is not even close. While hydrogen does have a larger energy to mass ratio, hydrogen is not very dense at all at atmospheric pressure and room temperature, hence the low energy to volume ratio. Thus, filling up your car with enough hydrogen to move it anywhere is a big problem. One option is to pressurize the hydrogen until you stuff enough of it into a manageable sized tank, but that requires the tank be constructed out of materials that are much more expensive than what they currently use for gasoline tanks, and if something goes wrong with the tank, the result could be a very bad explosion in the car. Since most people would rather take the safer and cheaper alternative of a gasoline tank, and since, as stated earlier, the current sources of hydrogen production all rely on hydrocarbons anyway, hydrogen is currently a terrible fuel source.

But, things can change. Currently there is a rather large push in the academic world for the development of new types of solar cells. The idea would be to use these solar cells to basically perform electrolysis on water to synthesize hydrogen. In a sense, hydrogen would be a way of chemically storing the energy of sunlight. But, many obstacles still remain on that path. A chemistry professor at Caltech, Nate Lewis, made a presentation to the National Science Foundation a couple of years ago about this very topic and has secured funding for a large project involving the collaboration of many professors at multiple universities in an effort to find solutions to these problems. You can find his thoughts on the energy problem here:

http://eands.caltech.edu/articles/LXX2/powering.pdf

Additionally, many materials scientists are working on ways of producing things that can store large amounts of hydrogen at low pressures and reasonable temperatures. If both of these things can work, then hydrogen will become a great fuel source.

What Would Humanity Do When All The Oil Reserves Run Out?

The same thing we've done when other scarce resources are depleted - find something else to substitute for it, or find a different way to do what we were doing before hand. Offhand, I'd bet that we'll increase our dependence on nuclear power. There are several new designs for reactors that look promising.

There is also a lot of research into alternative energy, like solar, wind, tidal, and biomass. Hydrogen may become a popular fuel if we can figure out a way to produce it more cheaply, and to store it safely. Alcohol from corn or other crops is possible, although I'm not convinced that it will become viable economically.

Solar/Wind Powered Energy?
What Are The Percentages Of Power/Energy Saved By Using Solar Energy And Wind Energy Compared To What We Use On Average? Thoughts Or Ideas?

When reading about the total capacity of solar power available in the SW US or wind power available in the midwest US you see either on could potentially totally satisfy all of our power needs. However such claims need to be put into some economic perspective.

-Yes, the power is there but transmission to far places is another issue.
-As is the efficiency of such sources of energy.
-Such sources of power may not be as constant as is our need. Our electrical system needs greater capacity for energy storage. This is another technology that is concurrently being developed.

They are improving but lets not expect so much that we will be disappointed if technology does not advance as rapidly as we would wish.

Currently renewable energy is only a small percentage of US power supply: http://www.eia.doe.gov/cneaf/alternate/p...
and a graph: http://tonto.eia.doe.gov/energyexplained...

Specific instances for home owners or businesses will vary a great deal based upon local conditions, local incentives, amount of available investment, desired or needed return on investment...
