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 use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, lots of residents find that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably lower or perhaps remove your electric bills

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still conserve 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 ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past ten years, property electrical energy rates have increased by approximately three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or homeowner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your property worth

Multiple studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs 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 growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant 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 considerably decrease that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that pick to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer getting choices, producing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.

Numerous homeowners pick to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 undependable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Financing

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Is Better? Solar Or Wind Energy?
Like The Question Asks Which One Is Better And Why?

Future energy needs of rapidly expanding human population will demand the exploitation of most energy resources can be recognized as non renewable or renewable .Non –renewable energy resources include various fossil fuels and nuclear energy. Fossil fuels include petroleum products, natural gas and coal. Nuclear energy is mainly obtained form the nuclear fission of the uranium. The world reserves of fossil fields and uranium are limited and will eventually be depleted bring fossil funds for energy has negative environmental consequences, such as global warming, air pollution acid rain and oil spills. It has become necessary to minimize use of non renewable energy resources. And to replace them with renewable resources.

Renewable energy resources are regenerated by natural process so that they can be used indefinitely. Renewable energy generally causes much less negative environmental impact them fossil fuels or nuclear energy. with the current state of technology, the generation of renewable energy is often more expensive then energy produced by fossil flues or nuclear energy. However with technological advances the costs of renewable energy is expected to decrees. Among the renewable energy sources, the most important one is solar energy. The other renewable energy resources are hydropower, wind, geothermal energy, ocean waves and tidal energy.

Solar Energy
• Solar energy can be used directly or indirectly for human welfare. Direct solar energy is the radiant energy, whereas indirect solar energy is energy obtained for materials that have previously incorporated the sun’s radiant energy. /solar energy can be sued for direct heating and alternatively the heat converted into electricity. Photovoltaic cells convert direct solar energy into electiicity. A back up system is required to store and generate electricity when solar power is not operative at night or during cloudy days other renewable energy resources are

What Are Ways Solar Energy Is Used?
I Need 5 Ways. Thanks In Advance!

passive heating - the use of sun rooms or closed cars to allow heat energy in and keep cold air out; dont you love to get in the nice warm car after work on cold frosty fall day? and do not forget the cat like to lay in the sun beam; bag pipes with water in them are exposed to usn to heat water.

solar electricity: the energy of the sun light is convert inot electrical energy via checmailc interactions.
satellites use this as well a rural electic fences and some stop signs.

active sloar heating where sun beam are focused on a samll area to boil water; cook food; even meatl metals.
the heat on certain toys cause the air next tot he toy to heat andthe air under the toy causes it to rise; its fun but not a producer of large amounts of work.

solar energy is used by plants to convert simple moleucles inot comple carohydrates. these carbs are then harveted and sotred and used by man for food and fuel (wood or yard waste is burnt). note that peat an scola and oil where once plant life that used soalr energy to create comple carbon chains.

Finally solar energy casue the air around the earth to heat unevenly (lakes; clouds; snow cause unequal heaitng) so the cold air moves in realton to the cold dense air ans we get wind; the wind turns turbines; pushes sails and be get wind power. Also the heat caseu water to evaporate and it htne flots to hihger evelation and when it falls we get flowing rivers whcihare used of trubines: nigagra falls and Hoover Dam just two examples. With out the sun to lift the water it would all have gathered inthe oceans.

Solar power can be used in communications; the shing of sun light off mirros is commonly used in rescuse operations.

So except for nuclear energy, some chemcial reactions; and geo thermal energy and the gratity extended by the moon and sun most energy of earth started out as sun energy.

Can I Have A List Of What Solar Energy Does For Us Please!!!?
Need To Finish My Solar Energy Brochure For School

It's hard to tell if you mean solar energy in its natural form, or solar power as a technology. Solar energy usually refers to the natural form, though. Solar energy supplies almost all of the Earth's warmth; only a very small portion comes from within. Without the Sun, the Earth would soon radiate all of its heat into space, and become a frozen rock. The energy from the Sun is not distributed evenly across the Earth, and it is that imbalance that drives our weather systems. We use solar energy to dry the laundry that we hang out, to tan our skin (cautiously), and to grow plants, among a multitude of other activities done outside that would be impossible without the energy coming from the Sun.

You do not produce solar energy; it is free from the sun. However it can be converted to electricity using solar panels. If you check a picture of a satellite or the space station in orbit, you will see large solar panels to produce electricity to run the machines.
One environmental problem could be the disposal of old and derelict panels.
