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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothing, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, numerous residents discover that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically minimize and even remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.

#2 Make a great return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past ten years, property electrical power costs have gone up by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with rising and falling money circulation, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home or business value

Multiple studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost 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 capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend 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 fantastic way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that select to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and enhancing business results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners choose to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Would A Person Set Up A Solar Sytem With Battery Backup For A 1500W Quartz Heater?
I Have A 110V 1500W 13.63 Amp Quarts Heater. I Am Confused About What Kind Of Battery System It Would Require To Power The Heater For 8 Hours At Night And How Many Panels It Would Take To Charge The Batteries To Full Capacity.

This heating strategy is not really plausible or cost effective.
The calculations should explain why not.
1500W×8hrs=12kWh
A 100 Ampere hour battery supplies 5 Amperes for 20 hours (design basis duty cycle).
110/12×13.63= 125 Amperes continuous battery drain.
Ideally, you would need 25 100AH batteries for a stable power supply which is not self destructive,
and which will have a reasonable (5 year) service life.
The charging requirement would be 12 kWh per day plus losses (10-15%).
The area of solar panels depends on the average values of insolation (solar energy), and
whether the panels are rigid or capable of tracking.

A better alternative is "Trombe" storage (qv).
Other alternatives are propane, butane, wood, and coal.

How can solar energy be used for heating?

Water can be pumped through solar panels that collect heat energy from the sun. Often these are mounted directly on the roof of homes at an angle approximately equal to the latitude. It is pointed South in the Northern hemisphere and North in the Southern hemisphere.

What are the advantages of using lenses or mirrors in systems that collect solar energy?

By focusing the light you can increase the temperature of the water. The water can be used with less water pumped and it can even get hot enough to generate electricity through a steam generator.

In which area or region (polar or equatorial region) can benefit most from the application of solar energy? Why?

Equatorial regions benefit most, because a smaller surface area is required to collect equivalent energy. A smaller surface energy means less cost.

Measuring solar power.

How can you measure the local power output from the nearest continuous running fusion reactor, the sun?

Voltage output from a PV cell on a clear day.

You are planning to install 15 sq. meters of solar cell on your roof. How much power will you expect them to produce?

10 sq ft can produce about 125 watts
15 sq ft is about 188 watts.

But on cloudy days and at Northern latitudes and Winter it will be less.

The most efficient solar panels PV are about 15% of the light energy. It works more efficiently on sunny days, and will not generate power at night.

Relating color and radiation absorption

What color absorbs infra red radiation best?

Black.

If you wanted the roof of your house to absorb the sun's radiation to help heat your house, would you buy black or white shingles?

Black

What color shingles would you buy if you lived in a climate that was always sunny and warm?

White to reflect the unwanted heat.

Reflections

How does the angle at which light strikes a mirror compare with the angle at which the same light is reflected?

The reflection of light on a mirror is the same angle relative to the surface of the mirror (in the opposite direction of course).

How Do You Purify Water Without Solar Energy?
How Do You Purify Water Without Solar Energy In Emergency?

You can use iodine tablets, add a small amount of bleach, boil it, or use an ultrafilter.

What Is The Future Of Solar Energy?
I Want To Know, What You All Think About The Future Of Solar Energy?

I don't think the cost of solar energy will go up, at least not until it is a commodity energy source and everyone uses it. On the other hand, I see all centrally-generated energy going up in price, as it always has. So solar will become a better and better deal as the years pass. It's already a good deal in places like Hawaii and California, even without subsidies.

Whats Best: Electric, Water, Solar, Or Wind Technology?
And Why Is It The Best One?

Solar is the best of them all !!!

Why?

B'coze Its the only energy that is evenly distributed around the earth and you can harvest solar energy form any where .

BUt wind energy can be obtained only in windy areas.
and hydro energy can be obtained in mountain valley .


So SOLAR IS THE BEST !!! :) :)
