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, cleaning clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many property owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly reduce and even remove your electric bills

Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a large part of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#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 significant electrical energy costs savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy rates have increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a company or homeowner with rising and falling money flow, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your house worth

Several research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes 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 key component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs 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 anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a terrific way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are necessary elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer getting decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many property owners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy business are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Best And Affordable Solar Panel For Home?
I Really Need To Know About The Good Companies Who Are Selling Good Quality Home Solar Panels. I Lives In Pakistan, Solar Panels Sell Here Are Cheap But They Doesn'T Work For Long Time, Mostly They Are &Quot;Made In China&Quot;. Consumption Of Units Of Our House Written On Our Electricity Bill Is 300. My Dad Is Seriously Thinking Of Purchasing A Solar Energy System For House That Long Last And Works Efficiently. So Plz Help Me Out.

Solar power systems are expensive and it takes time to recover the initial investment. The cheap solar panels that you are talking must be solar heat collectors which are most common in Asia. They are the most efficient type of solar power systems for the climate in South East Asia. They are mainly used to heat water. If you are looking for this, it will cost you about 25000-30000 for a 150-200 liter capacity.

If you are looking for a solar power system only, then you can expect it to cost about 50000-60000 Rs approximately for 100 Watt/hr system. With this you can run most of the appliances and lights, fans etc. and your electricity bill will only be a fraction of what it is now.
Hope this helps.

How Do I Build A Solar Electric Panel For My Home?
What Parts And Tool Do I Need To Build And Connect A Solar Electric Panel To My Home

Dear Matadora,
Very good, good, good step to change your home electric supply to solar cell, because in long run, solar cell is cheaper. First you have to consider Power need for your house, eg. 1200W, then you go to sellers and choose one with lowest price but best quality. After that you should assemble/attach your solar panel in place that gets most Sunlight, most probably in your roof. Attach them tightly, avoid burglar. Original solar cell current is DC. Current from solar cell placed first in several car batteries, so you could use electricity in night either. After that if your home appliances use DC, you could directly connect your appliances to batteries. But if your appliances need AC, current should be converted first from DC to AC use DC to AC converter. Car battery used to have 12 Volt DC. So if you need 220VAC, after DC converted into AC, then passed through transformer to increase voltage.
Thank you very much Matadora.

What Do Solar Panels Do?
Please Help Me I'M Doing A Project

Solar panels consist of something called photovoltaic cells. There's a bunch of things going on, but more or less light is made up of things called photons. When the photons hit the electrons of the atoms inside the photovoltaic cells they knock the electrons loose... causing electricity.

What Colour Can Solar Panels Be ?
Hey So Im Doing This Project For My Technology Class And I Was Wondering What Different Colours Solar Panels Can Be. Also Is It Possible To Have Kentic Power As A Back Up Power If Batteries Dont Work? Thx In Advance

Panels can come in a selection of colors, and trimmed in a variety of frames.
Most are dark, black, blue or reddish in hue.
Concentrators may appear white from a distance.

Kinetic back up is possible in the form of a flywheel. Not very common but it is out there.
Another form of kinetic backup that is used by some power companies is hydro. When the sun is out and the system is producing more than is used, the excess can be used to pump water uphill to a holding tank. Then when there is a demand, the water is allowed to flow back down turning a turbine to generate electricity.

Solar Panel Energy! How Does It Work?
Can Anyone Give Me A Simple But Informative Explanation On How Solar Panels Produce Electricity/Power? Thank You!

The solar panels that are on houses and buildings ect. use photovoltaic cells witch uses the suns radiation witch turn it into a DC (Direct Current) current this dc current can be stored in a battery cell nearly all battery cells use DC where as the energy that you get from the grid uses AC (Alternating Current)

The energy is stored untill you wish to use it and you can even sell it back to the mains line if you are not using it.

You also get a diffrent type of solar panel this type of panel has a liquid that flows through it and is heated up by the same photovoltaic cells but is ran through the water tank to keep the water warm
