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 use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of homeowners find that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably decrease or perhaps remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past ten years, domestic electrical power costs have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home or business value

Several studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up 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 an essential element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a great way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will remove 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 obligation are very important parts of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer getting choices, developing goodwill and enhancing company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- 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 Investment

The energy business are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can calculate how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

What Is More Important To Control Global Warming Solar Panels Or Trees?
If Everyone Put Solar Panels On Their Roofs They Would Have To Remove All The Trees Near Their Homes That Would Shade Those Panels For The Panels To Work At Maximum Efficiency.

since global warming is a fantasy, the answer is neither, but plant a bunch of trees anyway because they are nice to look at unlike solar panels and wind turbines, and birds can live in trees as to being butchered alive by wind turbines

Nuclear Energy Vs. Solar Energy?
How Many Solar Panels Would It Take To Produce The Same Amount Of Energy As 4 Standard Nuclear Reactors? Also, How Much Energy Can Be Produced From Uranium-235? Are There Any Hazardous By-Products Associated With Solar Energy?

It is a complex issue to compare and contrast between nuclear and solar energy. Both have advantages and disadvantages, however; the solar energy involved with least hazard in comparison to the nuclear power. You can figure out how much damages caused by recent nuclear accidents and the caused of health hazards and side effects of various cancers and diseases. It is impossible to process the same amount of energy by solar panels to 4 standard reactors. However, it only could by imaginary of many millions of solar panels with every big plant. The following web with many articles provide you the chances to find out the answer yourself.

Everything About Solar Energy!!!?
In School I Have To Say Why Solar Energy Is Better Than All Other Alternative Energy Sources, Which Are Hydroelectric, Wind, And Geothermal. Can You Tell Me Everything I Need To Know About Solar Energy? How Solar Panels Work, How Much They Cost, Can They Break. I Also Need To Know Advantages Of Solar Energy And Disadvantages Of Others. Thank You!

I'm going to assume that this is a debate or panel discussion of some kind, and that you're supposed to advocate for solar.

To do that well, you need to know the strengths of the other technologies, not just the weaknesses. You will have to answer to their strengths, and also defend when they attack your weaknesses.

Without qualifications, solar is NOT better than any of the others listed. Solar is better in some situations. If we're talking about national energy generation, any of the others might have an advantage. If we're talking about what someone can put on their house, solar heat and solar electric is often the only thing that works. Most people don't have a creek or river that they can dam for hydroelectric power, and most people don't have a huge open field in the back yard with steady wind. Even fewer live right over a hot spot where there will be enough heat to generate steam. But even if solar is the only alternative, that doesn't mean it makes sense, if one lives in the forest, or very far north.

The main disadvantages of solar are cost, and that it doesn't work at night or rainy days. The intermittent issue is solved by having a backup system. Virtually all solar electric in residences today is installed *alongside* the grid, not instead of it. There are no batteries. If the solar doesn't provide enough, the grid makes up the rest. If the solar is generating more than needed, the excess is sold to the power company. Even if solar doesn't provide 100% of the house's energy, it still helps. With solar heat, there is a reservoir in the house, and if the sky is dark for too many days, a gas or electric heater takes over.

As for cost, even without any subsidies, solar electric is cheaper per energy unit (kilowatt-hour) than grid electricity in some places, such as Hawaii and most of California. Grid electricity is cheaper to make at the source, but by the time it's distributed over lines to a home, and all the taxes and fees are added, it costs several times what it took to generate. This is why a small solar electric system mounted right on a home can compete. Your competition may bring up old data on the price of solar - be sure to get recent quotes from an actual company in your area. Solar panels are 1/5 the price of what they cost 7 years ago.

You may hear an argument about solar spoiling vast areas of the environment. That would be a central generation plant. Instead of a 500,000 kilowatt plant, argue for 5 kW systems - 100,000 of them - each installed on a home's roof, which is not hosting much of an ecosystem, anyway. 100,000 systems - this is not far from what is installed in California each and every year.

Of course solar panels can break. But just about anything on a house can break, too, from a dishwasher to a leaky roof. Panels today generally come with a 25-year warranty, which gives an idea of how confident the manufacturers are. There are no moving parts, meaning less need for maintenance, and less failure. As an analogy, compare the wiring in your house to the engine of a car. Which needs more care, and which is more likely to break down?
