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 everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. 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 considerable, lots of home owners discover that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or perhaps eliminate your electrical expenses

Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of money.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense 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 Safeguard against rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power rates have gone up by an average of 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Boost your house value

Numerous studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations 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, need for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost variations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks 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 growth is expected 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 considerable factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common residential solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are very important components of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that choose to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer getting choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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 infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Would Hydroelectric Power Be A Good Energy Source For Chicago? Why Or Why Not ?
My Other Choices For An Energy Source For Chicago Are Wind Energy, Solar Energy, Biomass Energy, Fossil Fuels, Geothermal Energy, And Nuclear Power But I Have To Have Good Reasons On Why I Chose The Energy Source And It Was To Be Realistic As Well.

hydro electric power is a clean and safe power source. As I understand it, the problem is finding suitable large rivers and dams with a large enough water drop for generating the power.

How Can Solar Energy Be Converted To Electrical Energy?
I Am Thinking Of Storing The Solar Energy For Future Use At Home And Outdoors.Is It Necessary That The Energy We Derive From The Sun Thru Panels Be Put Into Use As Soon As We Get Or It Could Be Stored In Someplace For Future Use Like For Home Appliances And Gadgets .Instead Of Using Lpg Or Hydro Electricity Which Has No Guarantee Of Supply

Solar energy can be converted into Electrical Energy by using Photo-volatic cells/Solar panels. Till now solar energy is stored in batteries. But if u can generate enough heatfrom the solar energy u can store them using the property Latent Heat of Fusion.

What Are Some Inherencies On Solar Energy?
Hello, I Am In A Debate Class And I Need Some Inherencies On Solar Energy Please, Thanks

Sure:
Inherency-Current administration opposes R+D now
"Top energy official extols Colorado based federal lab" Nov 8 2007
Judith Kohler.
Fact: NREL has laid off 32 employees and suffered a $28 million shortfall (National Renewable Energy Lab) So currently understaffed and underfunded national labs for renewable energy research.

Inherency-tax credits for renewable energy have fallen prey to cost cutting related to the Iraq war
"Foster: Dems pushing for renewable energy," March 29, 2008 UPI
There is an effort underway to extend and renew tax cuts supporting the production and use of renewable energy. The tax cuts for renewable energy have little chance of passing due to the costs of the Iraq war. (how ironic is that, LOL)

These two inherencies prove that the US is not currently doing enough to support research and development of renewable energy such as solar, and also not extending tax credits to promote development and purchase of renewable energy such as solar.

Also, look out your window. How many solar panels do you see? There is an inherency right there.

What Is Solar Energy And What Does It Have To Do With?

Solar energy is energy that comes from the Sun. It is a good energy source to pursue because it is renewable. No matter how much we use, it doesn't reduce the amount of energy available.

How Long Before We Run Out Of Oil And Natural Gas?

First, we will never extract all the oil and natural gas that that has currently been discovered. About 85% of the original gas in place can be recovered from a gas reservoir leaving about 15% residual gas. A reasonable recovery factor for an oil reservoir is about 30%. That means that 70% of the original oil in place remains in the reservoir at the end of primary recovery. Secondary recovery techniques such as waterflooding the reservoir after primary depletion will produce additional oil, but not all of what remains. Therefore, even known fields won’t be entirely depleted.

Second, even in mature, heavily explored petroleum basins, we are unlikely to discover all of the hydrocarbon reservoirs that exist. Some areas tend to have reservoirs that are too small or too complicated to favor commercial success from exploratory drilling. Exploration economics will have to improve significantly before much effort can be justified in these areas.

Also there are geographic areas that are politically sensitive, resulting in restricted exploration. In the USA, these include areas off the east & west coasts, offshore Florida, the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the 1002 multi-use area of ANWR. It will require significant shortages and high petroleum prices to influence the public and elected politicians to open these areas to exploration and production.

To estimate how much producible hydrocarbon reserves exist, you need to know two things. First you need to be able to estimate the probability distribution of undiscovered fields remaining. Second, you need to be able to estimate the value of the produced products and the finding and extraction costs. These are just estimates, they will never be known with certainty. There is considerable variation is the parameters that influence the estimation of commercial reserve calculations. As the world economies heat up, China and India for example, began to compete with the United States and Europe for petroleum products. The increase in demand drives up prices. This becomes an incentive for increased exploration because marginal prospects will now exceed economic thresholds and some of them will subsequently be drilled. However, there is a dampening impact the quickly begins to follow the increase in drilling. Costs for drilling rigs, geophysical crews acquiring seismic and potential field data, land lease royalties and bonuses all begin to increase rapidly. This begins to make marginally commercial prospects less attractive again. Thus, estimating commercial reserves is like shooting at a moving target.

Finally, there is increasing competition from other energy sources. Wind and solar energy sources will undoubtedly increase their market share in the future. It is interesting that nuclear energy is also getting some press because it produces no CO2 waste products. These and other competitors to petroleum will replace petroleum consumption as they become effective cost competitors in the future. This will happen long before all extractable hydrocarbons have been produced.
