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 everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothes, viewing 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 benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous property owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically minimize or perhaps eliminate your electrical bills

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity prices have gone up by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're a company or property owner with fluctuating money flow, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your house value

Several research studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial 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 part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate variations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are important components of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that opt to run properly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer getting decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 notorious for their varying and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and basic math, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Their Function?
In Aspace Station, What Is The Thermal Control Module And Solar Panels Used For? What Is Their Purpose And How Do They Function?

Solar panels furnish electricity. Thermal control, controls the temperature, so people and equipment don't get too cold or too hat.

Where Do You Get Little Solar Panels?
I Am Working On A Project Which Requires Small Solar Panels. I Am Looking For Ones About 3X4. Is There Any Way I Could Get These? And Where?

Thin-film solar panels are a great way to go if you're looking for small solar panels.

Thin-film have the advantage of being lighter while a traditional crystalline panel is more efficient so it can produce more power with the same area.

With the increasing efficiency of thin-film solar panels, however, they are quickly becoming an excellent option for portable power solutions.

If you want crystalline panels instead of thin-film, the DURAlite line is a good example of a portable solar panel that uses regular polycrystalline solar cells. DURAlite panels come in 5, 10, or 20 Watts and they have a 10' cable with a 12-volt car-style socket plug.

How Many Solar Panels Are In A Certain Market? Where Can I Find This?
I Need To Know How Many Residential Homes Have Solar Panels In Fresno, Ca. Where Can I Find This Information?

Prior to 2007, the California Energy Comission administered the rebates, and you could actually download information from them on the individual rebate applications. It would theoretically be possible to mine the information out of that by zip code, but perhaps they already have the information sorted.

Now the rebates go through http://www.gosolarcalifornia.ca.gov/ , I think, and maybe they have information for you.

Another way would be to contact the top 3-5 solar installers in the area, and ask how many they've put in.

Finally, if you have no other choice, you could always to go Google Maps, satellite view, and take a sampling of how many houses have panels within (say) a square mile, then scale up for an approximation.

What Are The Calculations I Have To Make To Buy The Right Motor And Solar Panel For A Small Boat?
The Boat (8 Feet X 4 Feet X 1 Feet Approximately) Will Move Around 50-100Lb, Speed = 6 Miles/Hr (One, Two Or Three Propelled Motors Of 12 V, But How Many Watts?, How Many Ma?, What About Torque? I Mean The Load That The Motors Will Have To Move?, I Want That The Batterias Get Their Charge From A Solar Panel, That Will Have To Provide Me How Many Volts?, How Many Watts?, How Many Ma?, Is This Project Possible?, Or Would I Too Much Solar Cells?, Please Help With The Calculations? Thanks

Normally a boat like that would be fitted with up to a 4hp outboard.

1hp = 750w (approx.), so you're looking for up to 3kw of power.

3kw from a 12v battery will draw a maximum of 250A.

After that you need to decide how many hours a day you need to use the boat for in order to decide your battery capacity; they'll need to be deep-cycle batteries which you can discharge heavily and the battery supplier can tell you the charging rates suited to your chosen batteries which in turn determines the size and type of solar panels which you use. In any case, your project is only likely to be fully solar-powered if you live in a sunny climate and have a large solar canopy on your boat. Or you could be inventive and tow the solar panels behind on a pontoon to minimise drag and keep the boat from being top-heavy. If the pontoon also carried some or all of the batteries then your most expensive parts will be on a separate module which can be safely stored away from the boat and you'll also be able to experiment with different battery packs and solar panel combos. It also allows you to have one power pontoon on charge (possibly even a mains top-up) whilst the other is in use.

When you calculate the daily running time you'll need to guesstimate the percentage of the time you'll be running at full-throttle. If it's close to 100% then it's a good idea to add 50% to your running time: this not only gives you a safety margin but it also prolongs battery life and compensates for the fall-off in charge capacity which the batteries will suffer over time. If you're only at full throttle 25% of the time and around 50% for the rest then you don't really need to add a margin.

Diy Solar Panels? From Scratch?
I Have Seen A Lot Of Diy Information On Making Your Own Solar Panels. I Have Even Purchased A Couple Of Them. However, They Have Not Been Very Helpful In The Fact That They Either Call For Buying Tons Of Broken Peices And Putting Them Together, Or Buying Each Cell And Building The Frame, And Wiring It Together. I Have A 14'X60' Mobile Home With The Flat Roof On It. It Is In Full Sunlight 3/4 Of Every Day. I Am Looking For An Inexpensive Way To Build My Own Solar Panel Using The Entire Roof. I Am Not Looking For The Most Efficient, Because I Have Plenty Of Size To Work With. I Do Not Have A Lot Of Electrical Needs. I Am On Some Medical Machines Though, If It Werent For Them I Would Probably Just Let The Electric Go And Buy A Propane Fridge And Stove And Call It Good. I Do Not Want To Spend A Bunch Of Money On Books Either So Please No Advertisements On Where To Buy Books On This Subject. I Have Very Little Resources In The Way Of Money Or Else I Would Just Pay The Electric Bill, My Electric Company Is 1/4 Renewable Energy Anyway. So If Anyone Knows Of A Way To Build This, Or Knows Where I Can Get A Book Or Website For Free. Please Let Me Know. Thank You,

Instead of trying to make your own solar panels from old parts that may or may not work I would suggest you look for applications where solar panels are presently used on a temporary basis and then not recycled. Consider some place where a battery needs to be kept charged while being shipped and then not afterwords.

Alternatively you should be looking for overstocked or out of date units. None of this may be easy to find. You will be paying in effort what you don't pay out of your pocket.

If you can't come up with any possibilities then send me an email.
