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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, viewing TELEVISION, 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 ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous residents find that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize or perhaps remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Make a terrific return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill 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 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy rates have actually increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a business or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also assists you much better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your home value

Several research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for properties 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 crucial component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

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

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is an excellent method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are important parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to run properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and improving company outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility business are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical power will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Are Solar Panels Good?

Because in using them, you don't use electricity from the power company. Using their power keeps energy demands up which keeps them to burning fossil fuels and polluting the environment.

Easy 10 Points? Solar Panels And Heaters?
How Do Solar Panels And Heaters Work?

Well ill start with the slorar panels, they work how there are cells in the panel and when the sun shines on it and reflects off the cells and produces energy.
Next the heater is just a plane heater with a object that stores up heat over time when its on and makes it hot and the room and thats amde by a tank or whatever its connected to,to transfer heat

What Does It Mean When A Solar Panel Is 50 Watts?
I Am Looking To Buy A Solar Panel. What Does It Mean When In The Title It Says 200 Watts, Or 50 Watts?

You have to be realistic about the amount of power you can get from a solar panel. Solar panels only produce power when sunlight strikes them. So it's pretty obvious that solar panels don't give you any power at night, and that you aren't going to get as much power in overcast conditions, or when the sun is at an oblique angle to the solar panel, as you do in the middle of a sunny day when the panel is pointing directly at the sun.
Solar panels are rated under standard test conditions. All manufacturers are obliged to use the same conditions for testing, so by comparing the rated output you can compare the performance of different solar panels.

How To Build Solar Panels?
I Would Like To Know How Do You Build A Solar Panel?

There are several types of solar panels. If you mean photovoltaic panels for generating electricity, that is a really advanced project that few amateurs are equipped to do. In the long run, it will be a lot cheaper and easier to buy factory made PV panels.

You can try building one by sandwiching an array of photovoltaic cells between a sheet of glass or plexiglass and a sheet of aluminum. Remember that this assembly must be able to withstand great heat, and it must be sealed to make absolutely sure it does not leak.

So basically, you need to lay out the PV cells and wire them together to get the desired voltage and current, with some arrangement to allow the wires to extend outside without leaking. Then you enclose the panel around all four edges with aluminum channel and seal with silicone sealer. Lay it on thick and test thoroughly with water hoses to eliminate all leaks.

As mentioned, it's easier and cheaper to buy them factory made.

If you mean a heat collector for a solar house heating system or hot water system, that is just a matter of building a thin, flat aluminum box with a glass lid. For hot air, you just need to circulate the air through the box when the sun is shining. For water, you need to have some arrangement to pass the water through the compartment in thin walled metal tubing. You won't be surprised when I say it's cheaper to buy one factory made.

Good luck.

How To Build Solar Panels? I Want To Know Everything And Want To Build A Solar Panel On.?

Hi Fred..This is a guide on how to make your own solar panels

1. Use the sandpaper to scour clean every portion of the copper of one of the sheets. There can be absolutely no corrosion on the copper for this procedure. Then wash the copper sheeting with soap, water, and either paper towels or a sponge. You can't let oil from your hands get on the copper.

2. Towel the copper dry, taking care not to touch it directly. Use your tongs to place the copper on the hot plate. Turn the hotplate on as hot as it will go.

3. Cook the copper at red hot heats for half an hour. A thick black layer of oxides should form on the copper's surface.

4. The oxide layer and the copper underneath cool at different speeds, causing the two to separate. This can be violent and send hot cupric oxide flying, so be careful no to get to close or leave anything particularly flammable nearby. it should take another twenty minutes to cool to room temperature.
