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 home owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of property owners discover that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower or perhaps eliminate your electrical bills

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a large part of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, residential electricity rates have increased by an average of 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your house value

Numerous research studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell quicker 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 homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties 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 a key part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs 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. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal property 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 commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to operate properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of house owners pick to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy rates. 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 what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Financing

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe How Electricity Or Other Useful Forms Of Energy May Be Obtained From :?
-Chemical Energy Stored In Fuels -Water,Including Energy Stored In Waves,Tides Or Behind Dams -Geothermal Resources -Nuclear Fission -Heat And Light From The Sun(Solar Cell And Panels) Thank You So Much! Guys God Bless You All! May All Your Dreams Come True! :)

Chemical energy stored in fuels:

Coal is primarily carbon, while oil, gasoline, propane, and natural gas are hydrocarbons. When these fuels are burned in the presence of air (oxygen), they produce water, carbon-dioxide, and heat. This heat energy can be used directly as a source of heat, as in heating the space inside of buildings. It can also be used to boil water, creating pressure, which can be applied to a turbine, and the mechanical output of the turbine can be applied to an electrical generator.

Water:

The common use of water for energy production is hydroelectric, where a flowing body of water (river) at a higher elevation is falling through an elevation change. When the water is captured and contained within pipes, the elevation difference in the water column produces a pressure difference, which can be used to generate electrical power by directing the water through a hydroelectric turbine. The following example is relevant:

http://www.nypa.gov/facilities/niagara.h...

Geothermal:

In areas of volcanic activity, geothermal heat sources close to the surface of the earth can be used to heat water to boiling, which creates pressure, which can then be used to turn a steam turbine, to generate electrical power. See:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geothermal_...

Also, in non-volcanic areas, geothermal sources are becoming popular in energy conservation. Traditional air-conditioners and heat pumps use the outside air as a source of cooling or heating, and mechanical refrigeration equipment is used to transfer the heat from inside of a building (in the case of air-conditioning) to the outside, or from outside of a building (in the case of a heat pump) to the inside. The problem with this is that the outside air temperature varies significantly, and when the outside air temperatures are very high, air-conditioning equipment must transfer the unwanted interior heat into a high outside air temperature, a process which becomes less efficient as the outside air temperatures increase. Similarly, in the middle of winter, when heat is demanded in building interiors, it becomes inefficient to extract the needed heat from the very cold outside winter air temperatures. Since the earth's soil temperatures vary very little with the seasons at even moderate depths, it is becoming common to install plastic tubing in trenches about 6 to 10 feet deep, and then, a heat transfer fluid (water and antifreeze) is circulated through the tubing. The fluid is then used to heat or cool the coils of a heat pump, significantly improving the efficiency of operation, both in summer and winter.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geothermal_...

Nuclear Fission:

When a fissionable atom is split, it produces two new atoms, and releases energy. Under the proper conditions, the released energy can be captured, used to boil water to produce steam pressure, which can then be used to turn a steam turbine and generate electricity.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_power

Unfortunately, there are significant public dangers in operating this type of equipment, since accidental damage to nuclear reactors can release highly toxic radioactive materials. Also, the fission process generates radioactive byproducts in spent fuel rods. These spent fuel rods will require storage or maintenance for extremely long times.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chernobyl_disaster

http://library.thinkquest.org/17940/texts/nuclear_waste_storage/nuclear_waste_storage.html

Solar:

Light from the sun can be used to produce Direct Current (DC) electrical power directly, through the use of solar photovoltaic cells. This DC power can be converted to common utility voltage and frequency through the use of electronic power conversion apparatus.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photovoltaics

Solar power can also be used as a source of heat. The light energy is converted into heat energy in a solar collector, and the heat can be used for heating buildings, or for domestic water heating. This source of energy is attractive since it does not generate carbon for release into the atmosphere (i.e contribute to global warming), and is renewable. Unfortunately, it is expensive, requires significant areas of installation, and is weather dependent (no heat or electricity when the sky is cloudy). A significant energy storage capacity (batteries?) would be necessary to use solar energy as a main source of power over the long term.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_thermal_energy

Also, since the temperature of heat supplied from solar thermal collectors is low, it's value in generation of mechanical (and subsequently electrical) energy is limited.

Run Down Of Solar Energy?
Can Someone Give Me The Run Down On Solar Energy? What Is It? How Does It Work? And Possibly The Installation Process And How Much It Costs?

Solar energy is basically changing sunlight into a usable for of energy. I assume you are referring to solar panels in this case.

They work on the principle that the photon energy from the sun is changed into electrical current using the photoelectric effect. I can't answer how they are installed, probably best to have a electrician do it, but a 60W solar panel costs maybe around 200 dollars.

If you are thinking about saving energy there are other things you can do first that are much cheaper, like installing LED bulbs or getting a programmable thermostat. I go over those ideas in the link below.

Solar Power Companies In The Us?
Just Asking Which Solar Energy Companies That Manufacture Solar Panels, Wind Turbines, Etc Will Be Here In The Us? Cause The More Jobs The Better In This Kind Of New Age Industry. I Just Hope Those Jobs Don'T End Up Going Overseas.

Jobs will continue to go overseas until the USA becomes more business friendly. Every company needs to make a profit to succeed, and the profits come from the reduced overhead in other countries such as China and India. There are two ways to fix this problem. The first would be to lower taxes on businesses, the second would be to increase the taxes on imports. A combination of the two previous things would work as well.

If You Plan To Use 500 Watts Per Hour Of Electricity How Many Solar Panels And Batteries Will You Need?
Assuming That You Plan To Use Car Batteries Or Something Similar(Deep Cycle), Plus An Inverter (Or Many), And Solar Panels? And What Kind Of Solar Panels Should You Get? What Will The Approximate Cost Be For Such A Set Up?

The 510 watt system in the source costs $4,525.00. That is just the parts. It is basically a DIY system and the $4,525.00 is just a bunch of panels, batteries and other parts that you connect yourself. And it is a 12V DC system, so you need to add an inverter for an extra $250 or so to get an AC system.

Which Of The Following Countried Is A World Leader In The Use Of Solar Energy?
A.United States B.Germany C.France D.China

technecially it would be norway because they have the largest solar production companies and also control and tax emissions, but out of the choices, it would be france, it ranks #10 on the international list of top 10 green countries. though germany is very efficient and uses alot of alternative energy. it ranked #9 as on the top 10 most energy efficient countries. take your pick.
