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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can I Make A Solar Panel For A Electrical Appliance In My House?
I Have No Clue On How To Make A Solar Panel Or How To Convert It Into Electricity Help!!!!!!

Making a solar panel takes a lot of work.

Buying a manufactured one is much easier,
especially when you have no idea what you are doing.


What you really should do is contact a solar-electric equipment supplier or contractor.

Where Does The Air On The Space Station Come From?
Not Just The Space Station, But Anything That Goes In Space. I Mean Theres No Air In Space, So Do They Carry A Supply Or Do Do They Have Some Kind Of Device That Creates Air?

The primary source of oxygen in International Space Station will be water electrolysis, followed by O2 in a pressurized storage tank, Most of the station's oxygen will come from a process called "electrolysis," which uses electricity from the ISS solar panels to split water into hydrogen gas and oxygen gas.

How Could I Get A Business To Sponser/Donate Solar Panels?
My School Would Be A Great Guinea Pig For Solar Panels On Schools. It'S A Large School, About 5 Years Old And We Are Interesting In Saving Energy. Who Would We Have To Talk To About That, Or Would It Even Be Considered?

This is a tough economic environment right now, most places are focusing on staying afloat in the short term. If you have a parent or parents that are CEO's of businesses, you might be able to swing a donation for a smaller system Most likely, you would have to seek donations from the other parents, too, and how much you get would depend on how hard-pressed your area is.

By the way, solar panels are getting to be mainstream on schools where I live. Try taking a look at the Google satellite map for Payne Elementary or Milpitas High School in California for examples. So if your school is in a sunny area of the country, there won't be that much novelty.

Does The Strength Of Solar Lights Decrease With Distance? How Far Lights Can Be From Panel Without Power Loss?
I Have Three Solar Spot Lights, Each Connected To One Approx 4In X 4 In Solar Cell Panel With 20Ft. Plastic Covered Wires. Will The Current Decrease If The Lights Are Attached With 40Ft Wires? How Far Can I Place The Lights Without Weakening The Flow Of Power? Will The Wires Withstand 45 C Sun? Can The Wires Be Replaced With Any Other Kind That Would Stand Higher Sun Temperature For 3 Months? Can'T Replace Anything Except Wires Where I Am.

Yes. If you are talking about solar tube light systems, then the light does decrease the further away you get. With solar light transmitted through fiber optic cables, the light decreases in relation to the length of the fiber optic cables.

But maybe I misunderstood your question. If you have a solar photovoltaic panel that collects energy form the sun and then runs that electricity through a wire to a spotlight, then no, the light strength would not decrease with the distance of the wires. These solar spot lights are commercially available in lots of stores for less than $100 and ofter have different length wires or cables available as options.

The question of whether the wires will withstand hot temperatures is best answered by the specific manufacturer of your wires. Generally speaking, they should be fine, even on a hot day.

Note that if you replace the wires, you may void any warranties that came with the light system from the original manufacturer.
