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.

"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 a/c unit, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing 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 substantial, many property owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or even remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of money.

#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous ten years, residential electricity costs have actually increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Increase your house worth

Numerous studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer buying decisions, creating goodwill and improving service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners choose to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electricity-- 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 Financial investment

The utility business are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can compute how much electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

How Is Solar Energy Created And Sent To Earth?
I Need Answers Asap Please!!!

Solar energy are results of fast nuclear reactions on the sun emiting great amount of heat and light energy. Heat energy radiates.

How Does Solar Energy Make Food?

solar energy doesnt make food
plants (phototroph) use the energy from sunlight to convert carbon dioxide and water into organic material to be utilized in cellular functions such as biosynthesis and respiration which then being consumed by animals. so animals are always consumers and plants are producers of energy

How To Find The Solar Energy?
I Need Help With My Chemistry...The Question Is The Average Solar Energy Received By A Horizontal Surface In The Summer In Springfield Is 3.5 X 10^ J/M^2 Hour. If A Home Has A Solar Panel With Dimensions 10.0 M By 25.0M How Many Joules Of Energy Will This Panel Absorb Over 8 Points....Please Help And Explain The Answer Or How U Did It

You have J/(m^2 hr). To get to J (ie energy) you want to multiply by something with units m^2 and hr (area and time)

If we assume the panel is rectangular you have data to work out its area and you're given time.

3.5*10^a * 10*25 * 8

a being the unknown exponent which you didn't put in the question

What Are Some Current Places Where Solar Energy Thermal (Heat) Is Being Used?
Google Is Being A Crappy Helper.

Solar thermal can be used to generate electricity in large power plants, or can be used to capture heat for water and space heating. Here's a good site on solar thermal electricity, http://www.ecoworld.com/energy-fuels/sol... I'm using solar thermal in New England to heat my domestic water for showers and washing, as well as to heat my house. Here's a description of it, http://www.altestore.com/gallery/Amy-Bea... It can be used to heat the water for radiant floors, or heat the air in forced hot air systems.

Solar thermal is used all around the world. China is the largest user of solar water heating, with Japan, Germany, Israel all closer behind. It is now required by law in Hawaii for new construction to install slar water heating, since it saves so much power instead of using electricity to heat water.
