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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, many residents find that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically lower or perhaps remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce 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 lower your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of money.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy costs have increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or property owner with fluctuating cash circulation, going solar likewise assists you better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Boost your property value

Multiple research studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for homes equipped 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 a crucial element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly 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 each year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are essential components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to operate properly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of house owners select to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are infamous for their changing and undependable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Any Thoughts? Thanks ... Julie P.S. :: The Car Will Be Racing On A Slick Tile Surface Under A Set Of Constant Lights. The Setting Will Be Controlled.

My advice is to look into building your own fuel cell to boost your cars performance. These could definitely add a little more needed power to your car. Research it a little. Some require very little to get some extra power out of things.

Or you could always try and increase the solar cell's power output by adding a magnifying glass or two (a big magnifying sheet mounted a few inches above it might give you an extra little boost.)

How Is Solar Power Energy Created?

"Energy cannot be created or destroyed, only changed in form." I forgot who said that (maybe Newton). Einstein stated that the energy created equals the mass destroyed times the square of the velocity of light (E=mc^2). The sun "creates" energy by "destroying" mass (in this view mass is considered to be "frozen energy").

Getting Power From A Solar Panel Made Easy?
I Am Going To Be Putting A Solar Panel And I Need To Have It Run The Power To Plug Ins So I Can Plug In Some Lights And Fans. This Solar Panel Isnt Anywhere Near Any Electric Source Or House Around.

Solar Power Shingles?
Hello, I'M Doing Research On Solar Power Shingles, Not Panels, And I Am Having Trouble Finding Prices Of Shingles And Companies. I Know Uni-Solar Is Very Popular, But I Can'T Find The Price Of Their Products. I Would Also Like To Know Some Other Companies' Prices Of Shingles, You Know, For Comparison. Also, Please Give Any Sites With Info About Solar Shingles And Materials They Can Be Made Out Of. I Know They Can Be Made Out Of Silicon, But Is That Good? Will We Run Out Of Silicon If We Convert A Large Amount Of Energy Supply To Solar-Shingles? Any Info Is Welcome, Thanks! Greenday

I recently had a system installed and one of the companies I contacted quoted me shingles. I don't remember exact numbers, but they cost more than panels and were less efficient. I believe the reason given was the lack of airspace below them increased overheating and reduced production. I put a link to the company that offered the panels.

What Is Solar Energy? And How Solar Cells Work?
I Have A Project About Sloar Energy And I Couldn't Find Many Information About, So Could Any One Helps Me

The energy from the sun is about 1000W per square meter at the earth's surface. Much of this is in the visible light range of wavelengths.

Solar cells are a specialised form of semiconductor diode known as a photovoltaic cell. They generate about 0.5 volts DC under working conditions, and the current depends on how bright the sun is and the efficiency and area of the cell. Many cells are connected together to form a solar panel. There are usually 36 cells for a panel to charge 12V batteries.

The photons from the sunlight enter the semiconductor material and increase the energy within the atomic structure. This causes electrons to be released. They flow from the semiconductor round through the external circuit and back into the semiconductor, to fill the "holes" left by the electrons.

There is plenty of information, too much is more like the issue. Maybe you used the wrong keywords to search.
