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 system, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of homeowners discover that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically minimize and even remove your electric costs

Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can make up a big part of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce 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 lower your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a great return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 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 capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, property electricity rates have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your house worth

Multiple research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up 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 a crucial part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many house owners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility business are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate just how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Many Solar Panels Would I Need To Power My Home?
Or How Many Watts? I Dont Use Much Electricity. I Have On A Couple Of Lights And A Computer, Sometimes The Tv. How Many Solar Panels Would I Need To Power Those Constantly Throughout The Day, And Maybe Charge Batteries For Night? The Air, Refrigerator And Hot Water Heater I Would Still Use Regular Electricity.

Solar panels produce DC electricity, not AC. So, they would have to charge a bank of batteries, then you'd need an inverter to convert DC to AC.

You need to find what your peak wattage is (consumption) and how long you want to run things for and work backwards from there.

Suffice to say, a roof-full of panels probably won't be enough.

How Many Solar Panels Do I Need To Power A Small House?
Im Only Powering Lights And Fans

Solar panels produce DC (12v, 24v, 48v, etc) voltage. You will need to invert the solar power to AC. The amount of panels is determined on the amount of Watt Hours of electrical load you will be using. If you want to run these loads after the sun goes gown then you will have to store your solar generated power into batteries.
I have a completely off grid home, 2000 watts solar, propane heat, H20, refrigerator, and generator. Total electrical system cost about $50,000. 1000 square foot home, facing do south.
Hope this is helpfull.

Charging Sla Battery With Solar Panel? Safe Voltage?
I Have A Very Small 10V Solar Panel (Which I Made By Connecting 4 Very Small 2.5V Solar Panels In Series) And I Want To Charge A 6V Sla Battery With It. Is 10V Too Much Voltage For It? I'Ve Read That The Maximum Is Around 7 Volts But My Solar Panel Doesn'T Really Put Out Many Milliamps. My Question Is, Even Though It Barely Puts Out Any Milliamps, Is 10 Volts Still Too Much For It?

Your battery will bring the voltage of your solar cells down to what they need. If you had more powerful solar cells you should have a voltage regulator in the system.

But good for you. you are playing with a very useful technology. Do it and learn.

Solar Panels And Distance From The Sun?
I Was Having A Discussion With A Friends About Solar Panels. He Says That If There Is A Solar Panel (Sp1) On The Ground And A Solar Panel (Sp2) High In The Atmosphere (In The Stratosphere) The Difference In Power Output Between Sp1 And Sp2 Negligible. I Said That There Would Be A Large Difference In Power Output Because Sp1 Has All Of The Atmosphere To Block The Suns Rays And Sp2 Has Very Little Atmosphere Because It Is Very High Up (In The Stratosphere) Therefore More Sun Can Get To The Panel And More Power Is Produced. Who Is Correct? Many Thanks In Advance, Please Leave Sources If Possible, For Validity.

There will be a difference (44%, see below) but not a large one. The atmosphere is transparent to the wavelengths used by the solar panel. But no clouds, and a lot more hours of sunlight.

Space-based solar power (SBSP) (or historically space solar power- SSP) is a system for the collection of solar power in space, for use on Earth. SBSP differs from the usual method of solar power collection in that the solar panels used to collect the energy would reside on a satellite in orbit, often referred to as a solar power satellite (SPS), rather than on Earth's surface. In space, collection of the Sun's energy is unaffected by the day/night cycle, weather, seasons, or the filtering effect of Earth's atmospheric gases.

The world Radiation Centre's 1985 standard extraterrestrial spectrum for solar irradiance is 1367 W/m2. The integrated total terrestrial solar irradiance is 950 W/m2. Therefore, extraterrestrial solar irradiance is 144% of the maximum terrestrial irradiance. A major interest in SBSP stems from the length of time the solar collection panels can be exposed to a consistently high amount of solar radiation. For most of the year, a satellite-based solar panel can collect power 24 hours per day, whereas a land-based station can collect for only 12 hours per day, yielding lower power collection rates around the sunrise and sunset hours.

The collection of solar energy in space for use on Earth introduces the new problem of transmitting energy from the collection point, in space, to the place where the energy would be used, on Earth's surface. Since wires extending from Earth's surface to an orbiting satellite would be impractical, many SBSP designs have proposed the use of microwave beams for wireless power transmission. The collecting satellite would convert solar energy into electrical energy, which would then be used to power a microwave emitter directed at a collector on the Earth's surface. Dynamic solar thermal power systems are also being investigated.

Some problems normally associated with terrestrial solar power collection would be eliminated by such a design, such as dependence on meteorological and weather conditions, and the panels being prone to corrosion. Other problems may take their place though, such as cumulative radiation damage or micrometeoroid impacts.


Obama Promised That Green Jobs Were The Future. Why Did 1,000 Green Jobs Just Vanish?
President Obama Promised To Create Five Million Green Jobs Over 10 Years. Solyndra, A Fremont-Based Solar Panel Manufacturer That Flared Then Sputtered, Abruptly Ceased Operations On Wednesday And Immediately Laid Off All 1,100 Of Its Workers. The Shutdown Marks A High-Profile Collapse Of A Company That Received More Than $1.6 Billion In Federal And Private Funding In Recent Years. If Green Jobs Are The Future, Why Do They Fail Without Heavy Government Subsidy?

Green products are not cost effective to produce, and the price is far to expensive for the consumer the bottom line is it is a losing operation
