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 resident to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of homeowners find that the benefit, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically decrease or even remove your electrical expenses

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

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past ten years, residential electricity rates have increased by approximately three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or property owner with changing cash flow, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Several research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell more rapidly 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 become more educated 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 an essential part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of three to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are crucial parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that select to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.

#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 money down.

Numerous house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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 fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can determine how much electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can I Charge An Electric Car With Solar Power?
If It Takes 240 Volts To Charge An Electric Car And 8 Hrs As A Short Charge. How Large Would It Have To Be And Is It Possible To Design A Portable Solar Panel System To Store In The Car Trunk And Use It When Needed To Charge The Car When Traveling?

Please check your other question for a discussion of the size of the solar panel required to charge a vehicle here: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?... In my answer I mentioned that the charge required depends upon the size of the battery, the charging time required and the amount of usage anticipated. I gave some examples of what would be required for the Nissan Leaf. (a dashboard trickle charger, a 34sq meter daily charger or a 66 panel 20KW power supply for constant usage)

Solar panels stored in a trunk might only work if you anticipate traveling at night and then charging the car during the day. Do you then intend to limit your range of travel to the battery capacity or do you feel the need to travel further?

Solar panels that could fit into a trunk would have to be flexible panels. The present efficiency of these panels is about 1/2 that of the rigid counterparts which would require a doubling of the size already mentioned. Therefore approximately 68 sq meters or more than 730 sq ft of flexible solar panels would have to be stuffed into the trunk of a nissan leaf to be able to top off the battery in a day.

A genset trailer may be a better alternative while traveling. http://www.evnut.com/rav_longranger.htm This particular trailer was made by AC propulsion which they advertise here: http://www.madkatz.com/acpropulsion/long...

Solar Panels On The House?
I Want To Know How Many Solar Panels To Use To Power My Ac And Water Heater

you cant use solar panels to power your house,
it would take more than you can afford,and space to mount them
and all the equip required to hook it up.
what they don,t tell you is
you need a Battery bank [24 to 48 batteries], deep cycle
a inverter
,[one that will convert 12 volts to 110, at the wattage you need ]
a transfer switch, rated at 100 amps
wiring,
a 45 watt panel is around $300

Can I Connect An Ac Motor To The Solar Board Directly?
There Were No Dealer Of Solar Panel Here, So I Decided To Buy The Solar Board Which Will Arrive By Next Week. How Can I Make The Ac Motor Work If I Can'T Connect The Solar Board To The Ac Motor Directly?

I would pick up some books on solar panels make sure you get one that has information with basic electronic information. Solar panels make a dc voltage in most cases unless it has some type of inverter built in this would be rare. Depending on the size most are low wattage. I would guess it doesn't have the power to run the ac motor even if you could.

If you could you would need a voltage regulator and a inverter to turn the dc to ac. You would need some type of battery to use as a capacitor.

Your best bet would be to charge a battery system then buy a inverter to run off the battery and a battery charger with built in regulator they're cheap check ebay.. You could put the motor on a timer to give the panel time to charge the battery before running. This is what i would do if i wanted to say pump water for cattle on a low budget.

People Who Are Environmentalist, What Is Better To Use Solar, Biomass, Or Wind Energy If All The Oil Ran Out?
If All The Oil In The World Ran Out And We Needed A Resource To Equal Oil, Which One Would An Environmentalist Choose. Of Course They Are Trying To Help And Protect The Earth. Which One Of These Would Be Chossen By An Environmentalist? Please Answer My Question. Thank You!

The sun, for all practical purposes, is an endless source of energy but cold climates, cold seasons and cloudy weather impact our ability to access it. We need to find a combination of energy sources and consistently rely on natural sources, such as wind and even controversial hydroelectric to meet our planet's needs.

We also need to re-engineer our products that require energy. We can design far more efficiently and still be able to cool and heat our homes, schools and businesses. The Green Star program is just scratching the surface when it comes to energy efficient appliances, etc.

I rate biomass third because it creates pollution while solar and wind do not.
