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 property owner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing 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 substantial, many property owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically minimize or even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic 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 photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, residential electricity costs have increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a service or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and manage your expenses.

#4 Boost your house value

Multiple studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively 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 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will remove three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are very important parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that opt to operate properly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer getting decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing company results.

#9 Start Conserving 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.

Numerous property owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

As of 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 varying and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

With Windmills And Solar Panels Installed, Al Gore'S House Still Uses 20 X The Average Energy Of Americans?

Which house? Maybe the idiotic liberals that worship him will turn off their lights and go back to candles. After all, he should live the way he chooses while the rest of us sacrifice. Don't forget his fleet of FSUVs (fuel sucking utility vehicles) and his private jet. He did buy "carbon offsets"...from his own company.

uno linux: I believe his house in TN is 10-15k sq. ft.

How Much Do Solar Panels Usually Cost?
I Was Thinking Of Having Some Installed On Our Rooftop And Was Wondering If It Would Be Worth The Cost? The House Is Located In Sac, Cali. The Panels Would Face The Sun 12 Months Out Of The Year And In The Summer Roughly 14 Hours Of Straight Sun.

Solar panels are currently selling for between $4 and $6 per watt of rated power output. A typical panel that you might install on your roof would be rated for between 100 and 300 watts and therefore will cost between about $400 and around $1500 or so.

A complete solar power system also needs some other components and will have some installation costs and so the total installed cost of a solar system is typically in the range of $8 - 10 per watt of rated power.

Most home sized systems are rated in the 1000 to 10,000 watt range and therefore cost between about $8000 and $100,000 dollars to install. Many states offer rebates and tax savings that can reduce this cost by as much as 50%.

These systems will typically generate between about $300 and $2500 worth or electricity per year.

Solar panels are expected to last between 30 and 50 years and so these systems will likely generate between $9000 and $120,000 worth of electricity over their life time in current dollars. This will vary widely though based on local electricity costs and may well increase greatly in the future if electricity rates rise.

Simple Hw Help?
Sorry Im Currently Braindead And I Cant Think Strait So I Have To Do This Project Using An Island And Describing Four Renewable Energy Sources That Can Be Found Or Set Up On The Island. I Already Have The Two Easiest; Wind Farms And Solar Energy I Have A Couple Of Questions That I Would Glad If Someone Answered. 1) The Direction The Windfarm Must Face Is Opposite Of The Direction The Wind Blows In The Summer. Why Is This? Is It Because Summer Winds Are Longer Then Winter Winds Or Something? 2) The Solar Panels Should Be Facing South In Order To Catch The Energy From The Sun For The Entire Day. Why Cant It Face North? 3) What Other Sources Can I Use? (Ex Tidal) And Explain How I Can Use Them The Island Is A Slim Island In A Slight C Shape. It Looks Kinda Like A Fat String Bean Or Something. Help

Wind changes directions at different times of the year

It cannot face north because it would not catch all of the solar energy. They get more sunlight facing south.

Tidal energy would work. Hawaii is doing that now. You find the direction of the tidal current, and it works almost like a wind turbine, only it is for current. http://www.eia.doe.gov/kids/energyfacts/... This is a good well explained site with an illustration to help you see and understand it.

you can also use geothermal energy as a natural source. http://geothermal.marin.org/pwrheat.html... this site will help explain what it is.

What Makes Solar Panels So Expensive In The Us?
I Recently Got A Quote To Get Solar Panels For My House And It Was Over $30,000! I Want To Do My Part To Reduce Global Warming And Support Renewable Energy, But How Can The Average Person Do It When It Costs So Much? Even With Federal And State Rebates, Its Way Too Expensive? Did Anyone See 'Who Killed The Electric Car?'

-----
Yes, they are too expensive - but if more people bought them, the cost would come down. Even 30K is a good investment, though, if you plan to stay in that house a few years. Let's look at some numbers:
*
In my neighborhood (cold climate here) my heat plus electric bill averages about $350/month (about $4200/year.) Assuming I switch to electric heat, and I can provide for all of my energy needs from the panels, they would pay for themselves in about 7 years.
*
How much better would this be if you drove an electric car? (I drive one.) The average driver puts about 15,000 miles/year on his car. The average car gets 18mpg. At $2.50/gallon, that driver spends $2083/year on gasoline. And this number, along with the price of gasoline, keeps going up.
*
Total cost savings: $6283 per year. So those $30,000 panels pay for themselves in about 4.77 years. If the price of gas and utilities keep going up (they will), you'll be paid off even faster.

How Do Pv Cells Convert Radiant Energy Into Electricity.?
Im Doing A Science Final And I Need To Know How Pv Cells Convert Radiant Energy Into Electricity. Thanks.

1. Photons in sunlight hit the solar panel and are absorbed by semiconducting materials, such as silicon.
2. Electrons (negatively charged) are knocked loose from their atoms, allowing them to flow through the material to produce electricity. The complementary positive charges that are also created (like bubbles) are called holes and flow in the direction opposite of the electrons in a silicon solar panel.
3. An array of solar panels converts solar energy into a usable amount of direct current (DC) electricity.
