"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.

Numerous homeowners select to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works.

How to Make a Solar Power Generator for Less Than $300

Using parts easily available from your local stores, you can make a small solar power generator for $250 to $300. Great for power failures and life outside the power grid. Power your computer, modem, vcr, tv, cameras, lights, or DC appliances anywhere you go. Use in cabins, boats, tents, archaeological digs, or while travelling throughout the third world. Have one in the office store room in case of power failures in your highrise. I keep mine in my bedroom where it powers my cd player, turntable, lights, modem, laptop, and (ahem) a back massager. I run a line out the window to an 8" x 24" panel on the roof.

Would Your Taxes Rise If You Added Solar Panels?
Would Your Taxes Rise If You Added Solar Panels? If So How Much? What Is The Best Type Of Solar Panel To Use To Power A 1400 Square Foot Home?

Hi Mark. Most states actually give you tax incentives to installing solar. I am listing a site below for you, there is a solar "calculator" there which you can enter your state and it will tell you the approx cost of install and what the govt will reimburse you. It will also tell you if there are any state fundings or programs you can take advantage of for additional money. Solar will also increase the value of your home, but not significantly.
Good luck with your plans, solar for me unfortunately is too expensive. Also I had people come out to estimate an install of solar. Unless you have a south facing roof with good sun exposure it may not be beneficial for you to put it in.

Is Solar Energy Worth It Due To The Cost Of Solar Panels?
Is The Energy Required To Manufacture Solar Panels Significant Enough To Affect The Cost-Effectiveness Of Solar Energy?

No matter where you are getting your electricity something has to be manufactured to create it. It isn't as if we have enough plants currently to satisfy demand. By building and installing solar we can reduce the number of coal or natural gas burning plants that need to be built to supply our growing demand. There is a lot of evidence that the large grid system that we have leaves us more vulnerable to disruption due to attack or natural disaster.

From a personal point of view, it is more cost effective to produce my own electricity using solar panels. I will break even on my system in about 6 years, my system is guaranteed for 25, so I'll be getting free electricity for 19 years, plus I won't be affected by the rising cost of energy.

How To Chose The Right Solar Panel For My Home?
I'M About To Buy One But I Don'T Really Know Which One Is Best For My Home.

Here are the pros and cons of four major solar panel system types.

Solar Roof Tiles
Solar roof tiles are shaped to interlock with your existing roof tiles for a barely-there shimmer of indigo that even the most persnickety homeowner association probably won’t object to. Solar roof tiles, which come in many different shapes and sizes, are a sleek, aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional roof-mounted systems. However, they do tend to be more expensive, both in materials and installation. And because solar roof tiles must be integrated directly into your existing roof, it’s crucial to get a competent, fully licensed, and experienced solar installer to do the job.

Roof-Mounted Solar Panels
These blue roof panels are what people usually associate with solar panels, and they remain popular for good reason. Roof-mounted solar panels are more versatile than their tiled incarnation and can come in attractive low-profile styles. Because they sit on a frame just above your roof, these solar panels offer less disruption to your roof and can actually extend its life by shielding it from the elements. However, some homeowner associations do object to their appearance, especially if they face the street or are bright blue. A solar evaluation can help you determine where and how your solar panels will be mounted before you run into trouble with your association.

Solar Patio Covers
The smallest and most inconspicuous of all solar panel systems, a solar patio cover sits invisibly on top of your garden patio and provides shade and energy at the same time. They are ideal for homeowners who have (or are interested in building) a south-facing patio or whose roofs are not ideal for a solar installation. Generally, solar patio covers are best for households with relatively low energy demands or limited space, but they can also be extensions of larger solar panel systems.

Ground-Mounted Solar Panel Systems
If you are a landowner whose land is unproductive or unusable, you can use it to generate electricity with a ground-mounted solar panel system. These larger scale systems can be either stationary or motorized to track the sun for much greater greater efficiency. If you would like to minimize disruption to your land, look for a system that sits on ballasts and can be removed cleanly at the end of its 30-40 year lifespan. Although most people have neither the land nor the electrical needs to justify a

You should install the Solar Panels facing East - that is what the NJ based solar company called ArosaEnergy did and it is working great _ Gogreen all the way.

Also in order to go green in your garden or landscape you can do what we did with Rubberecycle mulch over wood mulch to save our trees via not using wood mulch.
