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 use the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, washing clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many residents find that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically reduce or even eliminate your electrical bills

Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can comprise a large part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.

#2 Make an excellent return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity bill savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity rates have increased by approximately three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a company or house owner with changing money flow, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your home worth

Numerous studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes geared up 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 element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

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

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer buying decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Saving 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.

Lots of house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. 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 Financial investment

The utility companies are notorious for their changing and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Panel?
Does Any One Know How To Make A Solar Panel Or A Type Of Alternative Energy Maker. Best Answer Gets 10 Points

Though wind energy is the big thing at present, and I derive a significant part of my income from doing engineering on these wind farms, I personally prefer a wood-fired boiler & steam turbine generator combination as the best renewable energy system.

Wind generation works great when the wind blows, but if you intend to go off-grid expect to invest in energy storage and some other form of backup power.

Solar photovoltaic panels are about 16% efficient at best, and that's only when the sun is shining brightly.

If you consider that trees (biomass) are a completely natural, renewable energy resource, and couple this energy resource with modern clean combustion technology, this makes for a great dispatchable, long-term sustainable, ready-when-you-need-it solution.

How Are Solar Panels Rated? Are They Rated In Months Or Hours?

The output of a solar panel is rated in watts at the working voltage, which is usually 12 volts.

If you are talking about life expectancy, it is usually stated in years, and has little meaning; in general it is indeterminate.

Will Solar And Wind Power The Country?
If We Are Going To Stop The Co2 Producing Power Plants From Operating And Also Tear Down The Dam'S That Are Producing Energy Along With Not Building Nuclear Power Plants Because Of Their Waste Were Will The Energy Come From To Replace This? Please Provide Some Websites That Backup Your Opinion

Solar Photovoltaic panels are very expensive for the amount of electricity that they produce.

the cost of electricity produced by solar photovoltaic panels is approximately ten times the cost of producing electricity with fossil fuels.

Also you cannot produce electricity at night.

Wind power tends to be unreliable. the wind does not always blow when you need it.

The only reliable, and affordable source of electricity that does not produce carbon dioxide is nuclear power.

the cost to produce electricity by the use of nuclear power is approximately equal to the cost of producing electricity by the use of fossil fuel.

How Do Solar Panels Work?
I Wanted To Know Exactly How Solar Panels Generate Electricity Using The Sun? Is It Possible To Make A Mini Solar Panel?

That is a question involving the atomic make up of the material used in panels. "I wanted to know exactly how solar panels generate electricity using the sun? "
To put it in the simplest terms. Solar panels create electron movement (electricity) when a photon (particle or wave of light) strikes an atom in the panel. Because of the material's atomic make up, each atom is able to absorb the energy from photon, loosing an electron in trade. Any atom that is struck, absorbs that photon's energy and that extra energy knocks a electron out of it's orbit, disassociating it from it's atom. As sunlight showers on the surface of a panel you now have two things. First you have a bunch of atoms that have extra energy and are missing one electron each giving them a positive charge. Second you have a bunch of free electrons that are negatively charged. The difference between them is called electric potential. Provide a pathway between these two regions and you get electron flow, which is called electricity. SS

"Is it possible to make a mini solar panel?"
As in small? Yes and they do but remember it's the amount of combined energy from individual photons that determines the amount of electricity. As you have more surface area you are able to collect more photons, giving more electricity. SS
