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.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses

In the previous 10 years, property electrical power rates have gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Lots of property owners select to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Problems Of Fossil Fuels And The Advantages Of Solar Energy.?
What Are The Pros And Cons Of Solar Energy With Respect To Cost, Impact On The Environment, Availability Etc.

There are several problems with fossil fuels. They are a limited commodity, they cause pollution when burned, and they are destructive to drill for or mine.

Solar energy is a growing technology right now. People who have solar panels on their houses often generate more electricity than they can even use, and in some places they can sell it back to the power companies and make a profit while not paying for electricity.

At present, solar panels are expensive to buy, but this will change as more people buy them, just like any other technology.

For the environment, I would guess that solar energy is almost completely harmless. I don't know what kind of chemicals that are required for making solar panels, but once they are produced, solar energy uses a virtually unlimited energy source that is clean to harvest and gives off no emissions.

Can I Hard Wire Various Inverters And Solar Panels To A Deep Cycle Marine Battery?
Using A 12V Marine Battery, 550Cca, 140 Reserve Capacity. I Want To Use A Cheap Solar Panel, But Can I Hard Wire The Two? If So, How Many Watts Must The Solar Panel Put Out To Be Efficient?

What you need is the amp-hour rating of the battery. The rest are meaningless. I know battery manufacturers try to hide the meaningful numbers, but they are needed.

If I assume a 100 amp-hour capacity for the battery, which is a large one, that equates to about 1kW-hour storage.

You cannot hard wire them, unless the solar panel is so small that it will just trickle charge the battery. In that case, you need at least a rectifier, 1N4001, between the panels and the battery to prevent the battery from discharging through the panel when there is no sun. You would need a panel that can supply at least 16 volts in that case.

For a larger panel you need a charge controller in the middle to prevent overcharging the battery. This is for panels in the range of 30 watts on up.

What do you mean by "efficient" ?

Bought A House With A Galvanised Iron Roof, Will It Be Very Noisy? I'M Putting 3 K/W Of Solar Panels On.?
I'M Assuming It Will It Be Horribly Noisy When It Rains. Hopefully The Solar Panels I'M Installing Will Lessen The Noise? Any Thoughts Or Advice Would Be Appreciated.

that's so funny... many people actually prefer them because they find the sound of the rain falling on them SOOTHING. it's a little like living near the ocean and complaining about the noisy surf.

How Can I Tell If My Solar Light Is Working?
If I Put A 'Charged' Battery In It, It Will Light-Up After Dark. But, I Don't Think The 'Solar Panel' Is Charging The Battery! Is There A Way I Can Check It, Without Getting Too Complicated?

You know how to use a volt meter on a battery? Try it on the terminals of the solar panel in direct sunlight.

And make sure the voltage from the solar panel is greater than the battery.

How Easy Would It Be To Build A Small Solar Collector That Would Help Heat My House?
I Have Heard That These Can Be Built Fairly Easy And Could Have A Blower Added On Them To Help Heat A House. Does Anyone Know Where Plans Could Be Bought At Or Where I Could Find More Information About Something Like This?

here are some of the links for building a solar panel. A friend of mine and I built one to heat his pool on top of his garage and it works wonderfully.
