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 house owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, many home owners find that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably lower or even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large part of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, domestic electrical energy rates have gone up by approximately 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with fluctuating cash circulation, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your home or business value

Numerous studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to operate responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer buying choices, producing goodwill and enhancing service results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous homeowners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility business are well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

How Powerful Are Solar Panels?
For Example, How Many Large Solar Panels Would You Need To Operate A Greenhouse With Lighting For Simulate Sun During Cloudy Weather, A Scheduled Sprinkle System And Other Such Things? I'M Looking For A Very In Depth Answer.

if you are talking electrical solar panels, they are rated in watts they generate in full sun. usually these panels are used in tandem with batteries, so they charge up during the day and the batteries hold a reserve of power for later use.

If you figure 8 hours of useful sunlight per day, then a 40 watt panel will light a 40 watt bulb for 8 hours. you can also measure capacity in watt-hours. this would be 40x8 = 320 watt-hours.

the general method is to determine how much electricity demand you have over a 24 hour period to get the total watt-hours. then divide that by the watt-hour capacity of one panel to get the number of panels needed.

How Do Solar Panels Work?
I Need A Very Basic Explanation Of How Solar Panels Work. You Install Them On Your Roof, And I'm Assuming They Take In Heat From The Sun To Power Your House? As You Can Tell, I Know Very Little, But Am Interested In Learning More.

It really has nothing at all to do with heat but rather a chemical reaction.

Solar panels are made up of many small squares called photovoltaic cells. The photovoltaic cells are usually made up of crystalline silicon under a glass cover. These cells are connected by tiny wires to the solar panel. When sunlight hits the crystalline silicon the material reacts by kicking off electrons. The electrons are collected by the tiny wires in the form of a direct current (DC). This DC current goes through an inverter which turns it into a usable alternating current (AC) electricity which can be stored in batteries or fed into an electrical grid system. A group of solar panels make up a solar array. The larger the array the more electricity you collect. Expensive panels are about 15% efficient while cheaper ones are 5-10 %. You can find sites that show you step by step how to build a solar panel in just a few days.
If you produce more electricity then you use you can sell it to the electric company.

Why Are Solar Panels Good For Producing Electricity?
Explain Both Sides Of The Argument Please :)

good: no pollution, renewable energy, free power


bad: high initial cost, works for only a limited number of hours per day, and on some days (cloudy) doesn't work (deliver power) at all. Delivers a variable amount of low voltage DC power that has to be converted to high voltage AC to be useful.

I Need To Know On How A Solar Panel Works In A Simple To Explain To My Class For A Project?
Now I Know That Panels Collect Photons ( I Which I Have No Cule Wat Those R) And They Go Into A Interver But I Dont Actually Understand It ( As The Whole Process Its Self) If Someone Could Help That Would Be Soooooo Helpful.

I know solar panels...My work has 3.5 million dollars of them on there buildings...This link might help...

Photovoltaic Cells: Converting Photons to Electrons
The solar cells that you see on calculators and satellites are photovoltaic cells or modules (modules are simply a group of cells electrically connected and packaged in one frame). Photovoltaics, as the word implies (photo = light, voltaic = electricity), convert sunlight directly into electricity. Once used almost exclusively in space, photovoltaics are used more and more in less exotic ways. They could even power your house. How do these devices work?

Photovoltaic (PV) cells are made of special materials called semiconductors such as silicon, which is currently the most commonly used. Basically, when light strikes the cell, a certain portion of it is absorbed within the semiconductor material. This means that the energy of the absorbed light is transferred to the semiconductor. The energy knocks electrons loose, allowing them to flow freely. PV cells also all have one or more electric fields that act to force electrons freed by light absorption to flow in a certain direction. This flow of electrons is a current, and by placing metal contacts on the top and bottom of the PV cell, we can draw that current off to use externally. For example, the current can power a calculator. This current, together with the cell's voltage (which is a result of its built-in electric field or fields), defines the power (or wattage) that the solar cell can produce.

That's the basic process, but there's really much more to it. Let's take a deeper look into one example of a PV cell: the single-crystal silicon cell.
