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 a/c unit, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of residents discover that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically decrease and even eliminate your electric costs

Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big part of your regular monthly costs. 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 lower your energy costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power rates have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home or business worth

Several studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price changes in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will remove three to 4 tons 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 very important components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that choose to operate properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing service results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy companies are notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can compute just how much electricity will be created, and most significantly, at what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Direction Should Solar Panels Face If Built In The Southern Hemisphere?
If Solar Panels Were On A Solar Home Built In The Southern Hemisphere, Should They Face North, South, East, Or West? And Why?

I have mine facing North. They work fine. I'm at 38deg South.

Who Is The Best Person To Use To Advertise Solar Panel?
So, Okay, I'M Doing A Project In My Economic Class, And I Must Choose A Product To Sell, And The Product Must Be Profitable. So I Chose Solar Panels As The Product I'M Selling. But The Project Has To Have Both Persuasive And Informative Advertising Methods. I'M Having A Hard Time Finding A Famous Person To Advertise My Product. The Person That'S In My Mind Right Now Is Al Gore. Is There Anyone Else I Could Use To Advertise The Solar Panel, My Products? Thanks A Lot!

Bill Nye The Science Guy... He actually has them too - I saw a show on TV with him in it and he was talking about his solar panels lol

When Will Solar And Wind Power Be Affordable To The Average Home Owner?
I Have Been Doing Some Research On Solar Panel And Wind Turbine Systems. The Pricing Is Crazy. For A 10Kw Solar Grid Tie Kit System Is Between $35,000 And $40,000. If You Install Batteries Add $3,000-$5,000. 10Kw Will Only Power A Small To Medium Home Without Electric Heat. Using My Electric Usage And Info From My Local Electric Company Payback Is 60 Years For Solar And 361 Years For Wind. This Is Unexceptionable. The Manufactures Of The Solar And Wind Are Gouging The Consumers. They Are Using The Excuse Of Supply And Demand For The High Cost. When Demand Goes Up So Will Mass Production And The Price Will Go Down. This Is True, But They Are Making A Huge Profit On What They Are Making Now. Some Items Are In The 3000% Markup Range. Are The Power Companies Keeping The Price Up So Their Profits Don'T Suffer? My Local Electric Supplier Has An &Quot;Energy Park&Quot; That You Can Go See Solar And Wind Power In Action And Check Out Real Time Data Online. They Have A 4Kw Solar Array Installed And Claim It Cost $30,378 Installed And A 2.5Kw Wind Turbine That Cost About $20,000 Installed. I Think They Are Giving False Numbers To Consumers So You Won'T Go Green. I Was Able To Find A 3.5Kw Kit Online For $9,000. This Doesn'T Include Any Type Of Mounting Materials. You Can Add $800-$1,200 For These Materials. An Installer Will Will Charge You $2,000-$4,000 To Install It. For The Sake Of Argument Lets Say This Will Cost You $15,000 To Install But Still Way Out Of Line For You And Me To Install. That Is A Far Cry From The $30,000 The Power Company Claims. The Power Companies Don'T Want You To Make Your Own Electric. They Are Keeping The Cost High So They Will Still Make Money Off You. A 210W Panel Sells For Around $600. They Probably Manufacture It For Under $50. The Cost Needs To Be $100-$150 To The Consumer To Make It Affordable To The Average Home Owner. 50 210W Panels Make A 10Kw System. That Would Be $5,000 Not $40,000. The Manufactures Are Raping Us And The Power Companies Are Helping Them To Keep Prices High. When Will We Get The Technology At A Proper Cost? Let Me Know What You Think.

Cut the incentives, import tarriffs, and special grind tie rates. That will make prices truly competitive for those that want to participate in home green energy, and not put any cost on those that do not want to.

The important thing is the incentives, which artificially raise the prices of equipment.

Why Solar Panels Are So Expensive?
? I Mean . Why

Because current solar panels depend on ultra pure silicon which is extremely expensive to process. Some companies such as First Solar however use other materials to make there panels less expensive.

Where Can I Get My Solar Light Repaired?
I Have 2 Solar Spotlights Aimed At My Weeping Cherry Tree. Each Has Approximately 5 Feet Of Solar Wire Which Connects To One Solar Panel. I Chose To Drape The Wire Loosely Over Some Ground Cover I Have Under The Tree. Unfortunately, A Cute Little Rabbit Chewed The Wires On One Of The Spotlights So I Need To Have The Wire Replaced? I Did Not Purchase These Spotlights At Either Home Depot Or Lowe'S But Was Wondering If The Solar Wire Is Sold There. I Paid $80.00 For The Spotlights So You Can Understand Why I'M Not Willing To Just Trash Them. If I Can At Least Find The Wire, I Would Attempt Repairing Them Myself. Any Suggestions Would Be Greatly Appreciated. Thank You

You should be able to get the wire from Lowe's.I believe they have it in stock take it with you to compare.If all else fails they can order you some.
