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 property owner to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of property owners find that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically minimize or even eliminate your electric expenses

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally 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 lower your utility costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power rates have actually increased by an average of three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with changing cash circulation, going solar also assists you better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home value

Numerous studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar 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 achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks 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 anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to operate responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and improving service outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring 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 houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy companies are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Panels........................?
Are Solar Panels Worth It?? I Mean The Price You By For Them Up Front Is A Lot, So You Properly Need A Loan For It. So How Does It Work? Won'T The Loan Be Just As Much As You Electric Bill? Im Just Really Confused About It.

If your purchasing solar panels for a building or colony where a few families live together, the cost of the panels can be distributed or shared. And loan and electricity bill wont be the same. Loan is a one time transaction while electricity bill you have to pay monthly and everytime. You dont have to buy solar panels every month lol. So its a better option to spend on solar panels although it maybe a big amount, rather than paying high bills every month....

Solar Panel Looking For People Who Have Experience With The Industry?
Solar Panels: Asking Consumers, Manufacturer, And Anyone Involved With The Industry To Answer .? Hello I Am Doing A Research And Created Some Interview Questions And Hopes Of Gaining Insight From Others Who Have Had The Experience Of Using Solar Panels. I Was Using Arizona As A Target Market But Just Wanted To Get Insight From Other Areas As Well. So Please Include What Region Or Area That You Are From. Thank You I Am Trying To Get Insight From Anyone Involved In The Solar Panel Industries, I Have A Few Questions... 1. Since Solar Panels Are Expensive To Buy Up Front, Would You Consider Renting Them, Having A Slightly Lower Power Bill, And The Option To Buy Them Out A Few Years Later?&Quot; 2. Are You Concerned About The State Of Our Environment? 3. Why Is Solar Energy Of Importance? 4. Would You Consider Solar Power A Safe Alternative To Electrical Power? 5. If Offered Free Solar Panels, Would You Be More Likely To Consider Switching To Solar Power?

I'm in California.

1. I don't like the idea of renting or leasing, because someone must make money off the scheme, and it should ultimately cost more. Plus, I have the resources to buy a system outright.

2. I am somewhat concerned, yes. That would not be a strong factor in convincing me to put up solar panels, though. There are other things I consider more important for the environment. And on a state and national level, the environment is sadly not our biggest problem.

3. Just about everybody gets some, so it can be a decentralized energy system.

4. I consider properly installed solar to be safe. But I want it working in tandem with, not in place of, grid power. It's not an either/or alternative.

5. I already have panels, so do not really need more. If I was offered free panels, I would be suspicious of a catch.

What Type Of Solar Panel Do I Need To Charge My Laptop Daily?
I Am Considering Getting A Small 12V Solar Panel Setup To Try To Cut Down On My Electric Bill I Live In A First Floor Flat. I Have Got A Flat Part Just Outside Of My Window Where I Am Considering Putting A Solar Panel. I Live In The North West Of The Uk, And The Window Is Facing South West. I Want A Solar Panel That Can Charge Up My Laptop Up Each Day/Most Days With Preferably Getting Two Full Charges. I Know That I Will Need To Connect Up The Solar Panel To A Battery As Well, But I Am Not Sure What Amp Hours To Get On The Battery. I Have Considered A 40W 12V Solar Panel, But I Am Not Sure If This Would Be Able To Give Me The Power That I Need/Want. Any Help Would Be Appreciated. Thanks

The very first thing that you want to decide is:
1. What do you want to power on ? DC or AC
2. how much power do you need or want in Watts?
3. how long do you need it to operate in a 24 hour day?

Only after you determine these factors, can a solar based system be designed properly.

How Many Solar Panels Do I Need?
I Am Currently Building A House, Iv Designed It To Be As Self Sustainable As Possible, I'M In The Process Of Installing Solar Panels But As I'M Ordering Online I Was Hoping Someone Here Could Tell Me How Many I Would Need To Completely Run A 5 Bedroom Home, Just Standard Household Appliances Such As Fridge And Freezers, Plasma Tvs Computers And Of Course Lighting, Various Things Like That, Also I'Ll Need Power Storage As Well, Some Type Of Large Rechargeable Battery, Any Help Would Be Great.

A "typical home" in America can use either electricity or gas to provide heat -- heat for the house, the hot water, the clothes dryer and the stove/oven. If you were to power a house with solar electricity, you would certainly use gas appliances because solar electricity is so expensive. This means that what you would be powering with solar electricity are things like the refrigerator, the lights, the compute­r, the TV, stereo equipment, motors in things like furnace fans and the washer, etc. Let's say that all of those things average out to 600 watts on average. Over the course of 24 hours, you need 600 watts * 24 hours = 14,400 watt-hours per day.
From our calculations and assumptions abo­ve, we know that a solar panel can generate 70 milliwatts per square inch * 5 hours = 350 milliwatt hours per day. Therefore you need about 41,000 square inches of solar panel for the house. That's a solar panel that measures about 285 square feet (about 26 square meters). That would cost around $16,000 right now. Then, because the sun only shines part of the time, you would need to purchase a battery bank, an inverter, etc., and that often doubles the cost of the installation.
If you want to have a small room air conditioner in your bedroom, double everything.

Can A Rental Agency Make You Pay For Solar Panel Lease?
So Recently The Previous Owner Of The House I'M Renting Has Said They Want The Lease Of The Solar Panels Be Put On Us The Renters, Even Tho We Already Signed A One Year Lease For The House, Can They Add This We'D Be Putting Our Names On The Solar Panels, And They Have Several More Years To Go But We Don'T Plan On Staying Here Longer Then Maybe A Year So Once Our Lease Is Up We Plan To Move, Doesn'T Make Sense, Legally Can They Do This, Is There A Way Out? Srry About All The Commas Btw Xd ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

The previous owner has no authority over your lease whatsoever. That ended when he sold the property. The new owner assumed the existing leases at closing and must honor them through the expiration.

The lessor of the solar system is not going to allow a tenant's name on the solar lease. That's between the owner of the solar system and the property owner. A tenant cannot contract with a 3rd party for work on the property without the consent of the property owner.

Your current landlord could raise your rent when your current lease expires but not before then.
