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 home owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, numerous property owners find that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or even eliminate your electric expenses

Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense savings, the typical American homeowner 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 expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous ten years, property electricity rates have gone up by an average of three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure against unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a business or property owner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your house worth

Several studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups 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, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development 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 contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal property solar panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that select to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous homeowners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are well-known for their changing and undependable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Parabolic Dish Collector For Heating The Water Almost Every Day. Take A Look?
So, I Know You Can'T Heat Your House To Efficient In Winter With This System, But I'M Pretty Sure You Can Heat Your Water For Bath, Kitchen Or For A Pool. And If You Add This System At A Central Heating System, Or A Heat Generator I'M Pretty Sure You Can Reduce Your Heating Cost. Check Http://Www.Lamp-Bulbs.Com For More Details. What Do You Think? Is It Relevant Or Not?

I know that I built a solar panel system from scratch in North Wales, costing me just £50 in total. Okay, I did use some old plumbing parts such as a water storage tank, kindly donated off a plumber, but for 3/4 of the year, there was ample water for two people to take showers. The great thing was, that although the U.k> sees very little sun, the system worked.

I do think that solar water systems can be adapted to work in conjunction with geothermal water heating, and in doing so, totally eliminate any need for external heat sources for heating water.

On the parabolic dish however, although I have never tried it, I think there are much more efficient ways to heat water, as using a dish, you would only be heating a small amount of water at at time, whereas a tubed panel for instance, heats a greater amount of water than a dish could, and in all likely-hood, to the same or higher temperature too.

If you had the space, and you wanted to use the parabolic method, I would suggest using a parabolic trough instead of a dish, as the amount of water heated could be greatly increased. If you did decide to do this, think about surrounding your pipe which is to contain the water with a vacuum sealed glass tube, as this will increase your heat potential.

You could even make your own troughs, by cutting oil drums in half and lining them with a reflective foil.

Do Solar Panels Shine/Have Luster? Please Help Me. Easy Ten Points!?
Okay So I Want To Know If Solar Panels Shine. ------(My Q'S About Blindness Doesn'T Mean Permanent Omg I Can'T See! Blind But That We Just Can&Quot;T See At The Moment Because Of The Light.)----------------------------- -Like If/When They Face The Sun Is There A Glare To The People Around? -If There Is Would The Person Have To Look Directly At It? -Could It Reflect Off Of Other Objects And Cause Temporary Blindness Or Just Shine Light In Person'S Eyes? -If There Were Windows And Mirrors Near The Solar Panel Would It Affect A Person'S Sight? -And If It Did For How Long Would It Hurt Or Take Affect? -And Is This Physics? Like-Solar Panels And How They Work Is That Physics Or Some Other Category?

Solar panels reflect less sun than a piece of window glass, and people aren't harmed by the sun's reflection off windows.

Also, solar panels tend to be tilted more or less directly toward the sun, so the light that they reflect is back at the sun, not down into the street or yard where people are.

Those huge "power tower" concentrating solar thermal plants have a brilliant light reflected off the boiler. But those are put out in the desert, away from people.

How Much Solar Energy Is Used Worldwide?
I Would Prefer For The Answer To Come From Howstuffworks Or Brainpop. However, If The Answer Can'T Be Found On Those Websites, It Will Be Okay To Use Other Sources.

World Solar Power Topped 100,000 Megawatts in 2012.
That is still less than 1% of all electric power in the world, but look how that graph is trending up. I extrapolated that if it keeps that up we could end up with 100% of electricity being solar in less than 15 years. Of source it won't keep trending up that much, but I can easily see it being 20% of world total in 10 years.

Run A Air Conditioner Off 6V 200 Ahsbatteries?
I Have 5 100 Watt Solar Panels And 6 6V 200 Amp Hr Batteries . I Want To Run A 5 To 8000 Btu Air Conditioner

I presume you have a charge controller. Otherwise, you can't connect the 12v solar panels to charge 6v batteries - overcharging and battery damage will result. But presuming you have addressed that issue, I presume your 8000 BTU AC is a 120vac model. That will require about 7 amps = 840 watts. To get 840 watts out of 6v batteries, you'll have to draw about 140 amps. Since inverters are about 85% efficient, you'll have to plan on 165 amps from the bank of batteries. With 6 batteries, each will provide 28 amps. You might get 6 hrs of AC. A 5000 BTU AC will reduce the power requirements by about 33%.

Most battery solar systems are based upon 12v batteries. You can still go that route by connecting two batteries in series, then connect each of those pairs in parallel with each other. That will reduce the current requirements on the battery bank to about 80 amps. No change in the operational capabilities. You can get by with lighter gauge wire.

Where Can I Find Info On How Much Money The Federal Govt Spent On Using Solar Energy Tech. For Fed. Buildings?
Would Like To Know How Much $ Is Reserved/Set Aside By Fed Govt To Use Solar Energy Tech For Some Federal Buildings - Also How Much Money Is Being Spent By Fed Govt On Using Non-Solar Air Conditioning Technology (Traditional A/C Technology)

That is going to take some digging with google. Using strings like "u.s. government solar energy use" you will turn up links like:

http://www.gsa.gov/Portal/gsa/ep/content...

and this:

http://www.solarbuzz.com/News/Newsgovt.h...

So the information is out there, but it appears there is a not a single compendium site that lists all federal solar energy uses. Therefore, it will be a Project to assemble it.

Good luck.
