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 conditioner, cleaning clothing, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous residents discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically decrease or even remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of money.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, domestic electrical energy costs have actually increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Boost your house value

Multiple studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. 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 properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

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

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to run properly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer getting choices, developing goodwill and improving company outcomes.

#9 Start Saving 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 property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility business are infamous for their changing and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be generated, and most notably, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Where Can I Find Low Power Solar Panels?
Hi I Need To Replace The Solar Panel On My Calculator And Was Wondering Where I Could Buy One. Thanks In Advance For Your Answers.

My suggestion is to first make sure that your calculator does not also use a tiny button cell. It could just be that the battery went dead.

Also know that it's probably less trouble to just get a whole new calculator.

If you have the skills to replace the solar cell, I'd suggest first disconnecting it, and wiring a 1.5 volt battery in its place. If that doesn't work either, maybe the problem is not the solar cell at all, but just its connection, or even a dirty ON button.

As for where to get a replacement solar cell, if it were me, I'd go to a dollar store, and see if they have a cheap solar calculator that I could harvest one from.

Solar Panel??????????????
Can You Buy Single Solar Panels Say To Power A Washing Machine Fridge Etc.If So Where Can I Buy Them From

Solar electricity for single appliances high power is not easily available. By the time you fit the solar panel and all the technology to convert the power into the correct voltage and current, you may as well fit one which will provide for all electricity needs.

I have a solar panel charger which can be used to provide power for direct current operated devices and they are a useful backup if your phone or iPod runs out of battery power whilst on the move.

The UK energy saving trust has some great advice on how to reduce fuel costs and going green generally, but their major message is conserving energy, using less, is the best thing that you can do for the planet.

Evergreen Solar Panels @ Home - At What Prices Can You Buy These Panels?
Planning To Get Some Clean Solar Energy Into The House And Need To Know The Wattage / Volts Output I Can Expect Corresponding To The Panel Price.

Evergreen solar panels cost between $750 for the 170 W panel and $892 for the 195 W panel.

These are some typical prices for the Evergreen brand:
* ES-170 SL (170 W / 25.3 V) ==> $750
* ES-180 RL (180 W / 25.9 V) ==> $820
* ES-190 RL (190 W / 26.7 V) ==> $870
* ES-195 SL (195 W / 27.1 V) ==> $892

The difference between the RL and SL models is that the RL panels are made in Europe while the SL panels are made in the USA. Both are maintenance free and power efficient.

What Is The Most Efficient Angle At Which To Set Non Adjustable Solar Panels In Prescott, Az?

Try asking at the Northern Arizona Wind & Sun forum http://www.wind-sun.com/ForumVB/index.ph... - those guys are in Flagstaff.

The simple answer lacking other information is "tilted south at latitude". Your latitude is about 34.5, so you would tilt the panels at 34.5 degrees off the vertical.

There are other adjustments you would make depending on whether you wanted maximum energy averaged over a year, or consistent energy year-round. There would also be adjustments based on local climate. If it's going to rain all winter, better to cut your losses and optimize for summer. You might also point the panels at other than due south, to take advantage of best air temperatures during the day. Only a local installer would have the empirical information to make such adjustments. Maybe you'll get lucky and someone from Prescott will be on the forum.

Are Solar Panels Worth Buying?
Who Has Solar Panels On Their Home And Are They Worth It

There are different kinds of solar panels. The biggest division is between photovoltaic panels that produce electricity and thermal solar panels that produce heat for hot water and space heating.

Commercial photovoltaic panels are from 8 to 24% efficient while solar thermal panels are from 60 to 80% efficient. Solar thermal panels especially for hot water have a much higher ROI (return on investment) than photovoltaic panels.

A solar hot water system may have a payback period (when savings equal the investment) as short as 3 to 5 years while photovoltaic panels will typically have a payback period between 7 and 15 years.

Solar panels especially in times of low interest rates may be a very worthwhile investment with a better return than you can find almost anywhere else. But they are also highly dependent upon your situation. Owning a home with a good southern exposure is a prerequisite.
