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 air conditioning system, cleaning clothes, enjoying 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 ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many home owners find that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce or even remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a big part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility costs and you'll still conserve a lot of money.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, property electricity rates have gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your house worth

Numerous studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, 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 growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency 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 great method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common residential solar panel system will remove three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to run properly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer getting decisions, creating goodwill and improving service results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many house owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar company for electrical energy-- 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 fluctuating and unreliable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Could I Build A Small, Efficient Solar Panel?
I Am Trying To Come Up With A Term Project For A Class I'M In, And My Current Idea Involves Lighting Miniature Led Bulbs (We'Re Talking Tiny, Here) With A Homemade &Quot;Solar&Quot; Panel (I Would Probably In Actuality Use A Bright Light Instead Of The Sun). Is It Possible To Build Your Own Solar Panel Without Too Much Crazy Equipment Or Expenses? How Would I Do So?

You can get a small panel at Radio Shack. If you want to go to the trouble of trying to fabricate one from the ground up, that is another matter. Modern construction techniques are beyond the scope of even a well prepared home constructor. Vacuum deposition, being one of the steps in many of the types. Not to mention the hazardous and toxic materials used in manufacture.

Now, Lindsay books had at one time a book titled "How to Construct a Solar Cell That Really Works" which would make an interesting class project in itself. It uses primarily a copper penny- Pre 1982 US. If they still have it you should find at http://www.lindsaybks.com It does not produce enough power to operate an LED, but it does produce adequate power to deflect an analog meter needle.

At What Position (Angle And Direction) Should The Solar Panel Be Tilted To Get Maximum Heat?
I Want To Design Solar Panel With High Efficiency By Facing The Sun For Maximum Heat Absorption. Since Different Place Has Different Sunrise And Sunset Time, The Position Differs. Help Me.

umm just make them perpendicular to the sun. wait till like 1 pm and put a pencil standing up on your panels and adjust the panel until there is no shadow. it is then perpendicular

How Much Watt Of Solar Panel Do I Need For A 10Watt Led Bulb?
I'M Dealing With A Street Lamp Design Which Is Powered By Solar Energy. And After Some Researches, I Decided To Use A 10 Watt Led Bulb For The Street Lamp. And I Want To Know That How Much Watt Of Solar Panel Do I Need To Supply Electricity To The Bulb. Besides, How Much Volt Of Battery Is Needed? The Street Lamp Must Be Able To Store Energy During Day Time So That The Street Lamp Works During Night Time. And In Case Of Raining, Do I Need More Battery To Store Energy? Btw, What Else Do I Need For The Street Lamp? Controller?

You must first determine for how long do you need the light to be on.

Second the wattage of the solar panel will determine how many electrical units will be generated in each day, i.e more the wattage more the units generated. Plus you must take into account the efficiency of the solar panels & the charge controller so the cumulative multiplied effect will give a different result.

Normally the led's can work on AC as well as DC Supply, so i feel you wont be needing an inverter.
Take a look at the LED Bulb's voltage & current ratings.

Once you know the current then get the time of keeping the LED Light on
multiply it & you will get your Ampere Hour rating of your battery. You may add some 10% to 20% to it to account for the losses in the wires and giving it more autonomy during the days when there is low or no sunshine.

Additional accessories i suggest,
photocell : this automatically will power up your led lamp once the sunlight incident on it reduces below a particular threshold.
Also have reflectors installed before you install your LED lamp, this will ensure good light quality

Do Solar Panels For Houses Attract Lighting?

I haven't heard buzz about this being an insurance concern, so I'd think that if panels attract lightning, the effect would be negligible.

Nevertheless, installers take care to ground the panels and the structures holding them, as required by the National Electrical Code. Also, lightning arrestors are sometimes used, but those are to protect in the event of a strike, not to discourage a strike.

What Is Plugged Solar? I Like Solar Energy And I Want To Know About The Pluggedsolar Technology?
I Always Have The Idea About Solar Energy Been Super Expensive, Unreachable For Some Of Us. This Product Seems To Be A Good Solution. Anybody Knows How This Works?

As per the news and online video, plugged solar technology has the same components as standard solar power systems, typically installed on roof or ground by solar contractors. These installed systems are high priced. The plugged solar kit is a do-it-yourself system and affordable by bringing the cost saving by 50%. The kit has A-grade solar panels with 25 years of warranty from top manufactures and the grid tie inverter has 95% efficiency as listed under California government energy department. The components are UL approved. As per the plugged solar web site, most of the utilities have approved pluggedsolar, including New York, Maryland, Florida, New Jersey, Arizona, California etc. What makes plugged solar different is the technology used to make the system pluggable into wall with all the UL approved components. This is done first time in the history. This was the plan of US department of energy as per the source below.
Please see the video below for the understanding of technology.
