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 resident to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, many residents discover that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower and even remove your electric bills

Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 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 conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy costs cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, residential electrical energy prices have actually gone up by an average of three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or property owner with changing money circulation, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Boost your residential or commercial property value

Numerous research studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties 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 a crucial element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added 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 development is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are very important parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to operate responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are notorious for their varying and undependable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate just how much electricity will be created, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Financing

What are the various payment options?

We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

The Lease

  • Low, fixed payments each month
  • System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance
  • Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

  • We own the solar panel system
  • $0 down for installation
  • Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use

Purchase

  • Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
  • System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
  • Receive 30% federal tax credit
  • See a return on investment within 7-10 years

What happens when the contract for my lease is finished?

We provide our customers with a few different options for when their lease contract is up. Customers can upgrade their equipment to the newest solar technology available, extend the agreement, or have the panels removed at no cost.

What is the warranty?

The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Size Solar Panels Would Be Needed To Run A Air-Conditioner In A Small Rv?

You're going to find out that if the entire RV were covered in solar panels it wouldn't be enough to run an AC unit.A fan,yes.

How Come Solar Energy And Other Safer Power Sources Much Less Utilized To Replace Deadly Fossil Fuels?
There Must Be A Number Of Reasons Why. Pollution Of The Earth'S Surface And Atmosphere Are Critical Today As Never Before.

The answer is in the lack of political will and a mountain of disinformation from those powerful forces who wish to silence any talk of alternatives.
We are constantly told that alternatives like solar are too expensive with their tax credit subsidies.

What they don't tell you is the enormous hidden costs of oil and other fossil fuels. The subsidies to the oil and gas industries are estimated at up to $80 billion a year. The total hidden costs are estimated at up to $800 billion a year. If you paid that at the pump, gasoline would now be approaching $12 a gallon.

http://www.monitor.net/monitor/10-9-95/o...

http://www.eoearth.org/article/Ten_most_distortionary_energy_subsidies

Subsidies to alternative energy are miniscule in comparison.

An energy bill that passed in a watered down form in December, would have taken $21 billion in tax credits from oil companies, to apply to renewal of the alt energy tax credits, which expire this year. 40 Republican senators basically stripped this provision from the bill, which Bush would have vetoed, anyway.

The new proposal is to take $18 billion and apply it to renewing the alt energy tax credits. There is still much opposition from Republicans.

Dis-information, like the talking head on FOX news who made the statement, which of course went unchallenged, that "solar couldn't power a small sailboat never mind contribute meaningfully to our nations energy needs."

That's in contrast to this article from Scientific American which proposes converting the entire U.S. electric grid to solar at a cost in public money that is a small fraction of what we now give oil companies in subsidies.
Scientific American A Solar Grand Plan

Green Wombat has a bunch of articles about what is already happening with solar thermal power plants in California and Arizona.
scroll down for stories:
http://blogs.business2.com/greenwombat/

And one solar thermal company has this to say.

"Solar thermal power plants such as Ausra's generate electricity by driving steam turbines with sunshine. Ausra's solar concentrators boil water with focused sunlight, and produce electricity at prices directly competitive with gas- and coal-fired electric power."

"Solar is one the most land-efficient sources of clean power we have, using a fraction of the area needed by hydro or wind projects of comparable output. All of America's needs for electric power – the entire US grid, night and day – can be generated with Ausra's current technology using a square parcel of land 92 miles on a side. For comparison, this is less than 1% of America's deserts, less land than currently in use in the U.S. for coal mines."

And from one of the articles at Green Wombat:

"In recent months, PG&E has signed deals for more than a gigawatt of electricity — enough to light more than 750,000 homes — with solar power plant developers."
"The solar thermal industry is in its infancy but utilities like PG&E (PCG), Southern California Edison (EIX) and San Diego Gas & Electric (SRE) have signed several contracts for solar power plants and negotiations for gigawatts more of solar electricity are ongoing."

Wind also has huge potential and is cost effective.

Why Do We Need To Use Solar Energy?
Why Do We Use Solar Energy And What Is The Point In It And Jow Do They Change It To Heat Energy.

Hello,

There are two angles to view this question " why do we need to use solar energy?"

1. To achieve social responsibility:

We are daily using lots of fossil fuel and other carbon compounds, that are polluting our environment. Initiating Global Warmning, environmental imbalance, ozone layer depletion and which inturn is a big threat to the future human race.
Solar energy is a clean and a green energy, harnessing it will not pollute the environment or generate any adverse effects.

2. To achieve financial goals:

Solar energy after installation is INFLATION FREE source of power, which means you are not dependent on fluctuating raw material cost for your generation of power...This adds to energy independence.
Also in countries where conventional power is expensive and wind energy is not regular solar energy tends to be the most efficient solution.
In countries where power is not reliable, we can opt for green source of energy to replace diesel generators or battery backup.

I hope this answers your question at your satisfaction

How Do You Transport Solar Energy?
How Do You Move Solar Energy From One Place To Another If It Is The Sun How Do You Contain It And Transport It

Solar energy is frequently collected by devices called solar cells. These flat plates convert sun light to a little electricity which can then either be stored in batteries, used or sent out on the grid.
Solar energy (sunlight) can also be used to make plants grow. Once grown they can be harvested and shipped to locations where it can be burned as fuel or it can be transformed into alcohol or diesel and used as a fuel.
Sunlight can also shine on a field of mirrors that all reflect to one point that holds a tank of water that is boiled to make steam. The steam is used to make electricity by turning a generator. All in all there is not that much energy in a square foot of sunlight so it takes a lot of area to make much power. That is why you do not see things like solar cars.

Q-10:How Energy Can Be Obtained From Sunlight?Give Two Ways.?

1. by using photovoltaic cells which convert sunlight to electricity directly

2. solar cookers which concentrate heat energy onto food kept in small plastic containers to cook them fast
