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

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Won'T My Solar Panel Work?
I Bought A Solar Panel From Radio Shack That I Tried To Power An Led Light With And It Wouldn'T. The Panel Says It Should Produce 6 Volts. I Had Just Held It Together But Not Soldered It. I Also Tried Natural And Artificial Light But Neither Worked. How Can I Fix It?

It seems to problem with the led connectivity, I would suggest take out whole wire connection of your solar panel and then again put it tightly. It always works with my solar panel, I guess in your case too.

How Do You Clean Photvoltaic Panels Efficiently?

To care for and clean your solar panels, please refer to the points below:

Although the solar panels are flexible, DO NOT fold or crease the solar charger on sharp edges or objects.
DO NOT crumple or fold the solar panels.
Maximum rolling diameter of the solar panels is 3-inches (7.5 cm). The solar is not meant to be rolled into a tight cylinder (for example rolled into a cylinder, folded and stuffed into a pocket). The solar was designed to be lightweight and comfortable and as a consequence is very flexible.
REMOVE the solar panels and auxiliary battery from your SeV before machine washing or dry cleaning the jacket.
DO NOT machine wash, machine dry, or dry clean the solar panels.
AVOID inserting electrically conductive objects (coins, metallic gum wrappers) into the auxiliary battery USB port. The auxiliary battery has an internal automatic reset fuse, however, a direct short will discharge the battery reducing system performance.
DO NOT open the auxiliary battery box.
DO NOT attempt to charge the auxiliary battery with any other charging device.
The auxiliary battery box is not waterproof, DO NOT immerse in water.
To clean the solar panels, follow the following instructions:

Remove the solar charger from your SeV.
Wipe clean with a damp wash cloth.
Lie the clean charger flat and allow to air dry
DO NOT machine wash or machine dry.
DO NOT Dry clean. Dry cleaning chemicals may damage the solar charger protective plastics.

How To Setup A Solar Panel.?
I Currently Live In A Place Were There Is Consistent Power Outages And Am Planning To Setup A Small Solar Panel In Order To Power My 12 V 1 A Wifi Router. I Have No Experience Whatsoever With Solar Panels, And Have A Few Questions: 1)What Solar Panel Should I Get (Wattage,Voltage...) 2)What Other Devices Will I Need If I Will Be Using The Generated Power Directly Without A Battery. 3) Is There Any Other Details I Missed? Thanks

Without sunlight, there will be no power. You will need a battery for overnight power - or when it is very cloudy.

If it is only the router that needs power, it won't use much. Check the kits out there. Solar cell, cables, charge controller... you add a deep cycle battery (not a car battery, even though they look similar - they are very different). and a power inverter. Of course, you should have power to your computer, too.

Harbor Freight has an inexpensive kit that will exceed your requirements

How Is Dc Converted To Ac At Solar Fields?
This Is Not For Solar Panels At Homes Or Businesses. Like The Question Asks, I Am Trying To Find Where And How Dc Is Converted To Ac From The Electricity Produced At Solar Fields. Thanks In Advance For The Help

They use inverters, just as you would use in a household or commercial solar electric system. Industrial capacity inverters are available in very large sizes.

What Is The Average Cost Of Solar Panels In Ohio?
I Live In A Tri-Level Home Approximately 1400 Square Feet. I Use Around 3000 Kwh A Month And Spend 400-500 A Month On My Electric (Only) Bill. I Figure If Im Going To Be Spending That Much Anyway, I Might As Well Help The Environment And Get The Tax Credit. If You Can Give Me The Average Cost To Add The Panels To My Home, How Many Panels I May Need, And The Average Cost Savings On An Electric Bill I Would Truly Appreciate It
