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 system, cleaning clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of homeowners discover that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly reduce or perhaps remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a big portion of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.

#2 Make an excellent return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy bill savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a company or house owner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Numerous studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer faster 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 become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial 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 a crucial element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important parts of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing company 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 loan down.

Numerous property owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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 companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy math, we can compute how much electrical power will be produced, and most importantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Big Will Will A Solar Panel Need To Be To Produce Around 9 Volts?
I'M Doing An Electronics Gcse And Since The Theme This Year Is The Whole &Quot;Green&Quot; Theme, I Am Thinking To Try And Make My Project Solar Powered. I Need The Panel To Provide At Least 9 Volts (A Pp3 Baterry) To Power My Circuit. Also, If I Decide To Make It Solar Powered, Will It Store The Made Electricity Or Will It Only Power The Circuit When There Is Sun Available?

The output voltage of a single Silicon solar cell is around 0.5V to 0.6V, In order to provide a higher voltage you need several cells in series to produce the required output. A commercially available solar cell may already be configured in this way.

A solar cell will only supply a current whilst it is illuminated, it does not store electrical energy. However you could use a bank of solar cells to keep a battery charged. The battery will supply the necessary current when the light intensity is insufficient to supply your circuit. You would need to use a solar cell whose average current during a day and night period is greater than the average current that your circuit requires during that period in order to keep the battery charged.

The physical size of the solar panel that you require will depend upon the current that your circuit requires as well as the voltage. Without this information, it is not possible to say how large your solar cells need to be.

Low current devices (such as calculators) can be supplied from solar cells of only a few square centimetres surface area, You should spend some time on designing your circuit to use as little power as possible. That will greatly reduce the size (and cost) of the solar cell that you require.

As mentioned in another answer it is possible to buy solar powered garden lights and cannibalise them as a cheap souce of solar cells and batteries.

Where Are Solar Pannels Mostly Located? And Why Are They Put There?
What I Mean Is Like Were There Found In The U.S. And Why They Specifically Place These Solar Pannels In That Location.

#1 Southern exposure of a roof
#2 Southern exposure of a separate panel

They aim south because that's where the sun is.
The roof is good because it avoids a lot of things that might cause a shadow to block the sun.
A separate panel - something that is not built onto/into some other structure is easier to make so that you can change the angle to track the sun either daily or seasonally.

Has Anyone Tried The Solar Panels For Homes N How Do I Know How Much I Need ?

What you should do is look up solar installers in your phone book, and get some free quotes. No one can give you a good estimate without knowing where you live, and how much energy you use each year (they will look at your energy bills for the last year).
