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 use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, seeing TV, 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 substantial, lots of homeowners discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or even remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free 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 decrease your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Make an excellent return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill cost savings, the average American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous ten years, residential electrical power prices have actually gone up by an average of three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a company or house owner with changing money flow, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home or business value

Numerous research studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes 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 element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is an excellent method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that select to run responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing company results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners choose to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute how much electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

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.

Solar power usually refers to making electricity from the sun. Solar energy may refer to this and also sometimes using the heat energy from the sun. Thermal solar collectors may use solar energy to make solar power.

Solar energy is only beginning to be explored in our society. In other societies (ancient Greece for example) there were laws to prevent one person from blocking the sun from the land of another as the sun was important for heating. The sun's energy stored in chemical bonds has been very common in our society. Oil is king. This has marginalized direct solar energy use. The amount of Solar energy in our society depends upon what you are including. Direct Solar? Wind? Biomass? Hydro generation? Here is one site that adds it up to 13%: >http://evworld.com/news.cfm?newsid=21381...

2 the economics of solar is also subject to definitions. Real cost or cost including politically gained subsidies. Gasoline may cost $3.00 at the pump but estimates of its real cost are from $10 to more than $20. Nuclear power is also heavily subsidized. Solar is just getting into the game and is taking time to get its political markers in place. When it comes to efficiency solar is far more direct and has some distinct advantages. http://www.catalystmagazine.com/componen... http://evworld.com/article.cfm?storyid=1... http://www.ringnebula.com/project-censored/1976-1992/1988/1988-story11.htm http://environment.about.com/od/renewableenergy/a/solar_power.htm

3. Direct Solar energy and renewable solar energy is substantially more eco friendly than using fossil solar energy. Shading environments with solar collectors changes environments this may have effects to be considered. Some large scale solar power installations need water in environments where this is scarce. Wind generators may have an adverse effect on flying wildlife. And hydroelectric dam may add unusual pressure on the Earth's crust. http://solareis.anl.gov/guide/environment/index.cfm http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/27/us/27solar.html

Why Is Alternative Energy Is Considered Important?

Alternative Energy sources are energy sources that provide alternatives to the World's traditional energy sources - fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are coal, crude oil and natural gas. Alternative energy sources (solar, wind, geothermal retc) are important because:

(i) Unlike fossil fuels, they produce very little or no greenhouse gases emissions and other pollutants, as we obtain energy from them;

(ii) They are available in abundance and can be easily replenished. In other words, they are renewable, unable fossil fuels that can run out anytime and create energy crisis for the world

(iii) They guarantee home made energy and hence security rather than insecurity that comes with dependence on foreign oil. For more knowledge on Alternative/renewable energy sources, go to:

What Is Efficiency Of Coal Power Stations And Solar Energy?

Coal-fired power stations are not very efficient. Most of them don't reach more than 40% efficient. A few can reach 45%.

There is a theoretical limit to the percentage of energy that can be converted from heat to mechanical energy in any heat engine, which is the first part of what a coal-fired power station does. This limit depends on the difference in temperature between the heat source (burning coal) and the heat sink (the steam coming out the end of the turbine). The higher the difference in temperature, the more efficient. Most coal fired plants are well below the theoretical limit for their temperature delta, and typical efficiencies are in the 30-40% range. Coal quality also has an impact on efficiency. For example, coal with a high moisture content will be less efficient, because some of the heat energy in the coal will be used up converting the water in the coal into steam, rather than into heat. (State change from liquid to gas uses energy without producing heat, which is why when you boil water, the thermometer rises steadily to the boiling point, stays there for a while, and then once boiling starts, it keeps rising.)

There are two main types of solar electricity generation. Small-scale and most large-scale installations are photovoltaic systems, which capture the energy from the photons that make up light, in order to create an electron and its opposite, a 'hole', which then power a circuit. Again there is a theoretical limit to the efficiency of a photovoltaic cell, but most commercial solar photovoltaic panels fall well below this limit. Current efficiencies are in the low to high teens for the more affordable units. Much higher efficiencies are possible - as high as 40% or more - but these often cost as much as 100 times as much.

The second common type of solar electricity is produced by concentrating sunlight, using mirrors, onto a small target containing a liquid; that liquid becomes very hot due to the concentration of light and its conversion to heat, and that heat is then used to boil the liquid in order to drive a turbine. What you might notice here is that that turbine is basically, once again, a heat engine, and so subject to the same theoretical efficiency limits as a coal fired power plant.

The main difference, however, is that with coal we are looking at a non-renewable resource which costs money and causes environmental damage to extract, whereas with solar we are looking at a renewable resource that is basically free once the solar station is set up.

"Investors are too pessimistic on the solar power industry," said CNBC. "Profits might be falling, but we think they're going to rise dramatically, about 50 percent in the next year."

How Do We Keep On Conserving A Global Warming?
What Can We Do For More Advantage In Global Warming

You didn't specify whether you wanted to encourage or discourage global warming, so I'll give answers for both.

Encouraging global warming:
Encouraging global warming is easy; we just need to keep doing all the things that we are doing now. Burning fossil fuels, deforestation, and releasing chemicals into the environment all greatly contribute to global warming.

Discouraging global warming:
This would be considerable more difficult as it would mean huge changes in the way of life for most people in the more 'sophisticated' societies. We would have to not only stop deforestation, but plant billions of acres of trees. We would also need to get nearly all of our energy from sources like windmills and solar panels. It would take decades for our planet to recover from the damage we've done to it, and it would never completely recover.
