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 house owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, washing clothes, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, lots of homeowners discover that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly lower or perhaps remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, property electrical energy costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a company or house owner with changing cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home worth

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

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost variations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will eliminate three to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that choose to run properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of customer getting decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many homeowners choose to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility business are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy math, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most significantly, at what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

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.
