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 property owner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, many property owners discover that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically minimize and even eliminate your electrical costs

Whether you're a property owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a large part of your month-to-month costs.

#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy prices have gone up by approximately three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your residential or commercial property worth

Numerous studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up 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 component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a terrific way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common domestic solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that opt to operate properly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners choose to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy business are well-known for their changing and undependable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical power will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Can Solar Power Panels Installed At Home Provide Enough Electricity To Power House Hold Appliances?
Can Solar Power Panels Installed At Home Provide Enough Electricity To Power House Hold Appliainces And Heat Water.

They can but it takes a lot of panels. A home averages about 1 kw power. Peak power is higher (3-6 kw) but you can handle that with load leveling storage batteries.

The total maximum solar flux is about 1 kw/square yard (or square meter). Solar panels are around 10% efficient. Because the Sun travels across the sky, the overall power is about 1/2 this maximum but then ony during the day (1/2 the time). Since you need to recharge your batteries for nighttime, etc. and battery charging is about 50% you lose abother factor of two.

So, assuming the Sun shines every day, you can power your house on 80 square yards (700 square feet of solar panels). This is still very rare because the investment in solar panels, batteries, converters, etc. far outweighs what you spend for commercial electricity.

Why In The Last 8 Yrs The?
Do You Think The Us Should Invest More In Solar Power? In The Uk All New Government Bldg Are Required To Have Solar Panels. If The Price Came Down Would You Put Them On Your House? Or Do You Think It Would Be A Good Idea For Us Car Manufacturers To Put Them On New Cars? Solar Is A Truly Renewable Power Source So Why Has The Us So Blatantly Been Seeming Like They Are Forgetting About It Except For Skin Cancer And Selling More Sunscreen?

There are a million eco-responsible things that the US could do/should do. But as a nation, until the old white men that run this country can no longer turn a huge profit on oil, or start making money on solar panels it won't happen. The US is like 5% of the worlds population and we use like 40% of the worlds resources. We are a bunch of fat greedy bastards. Although there is an uprise in going green in this country now, it is a fad. It is gaining great momentum because it is the cool thing to do, but it is still a fad and US people as a whole are only going to be as green as they feel benifits them. There are ofcourse the exceptions, but i wouldnt really count on the US to really step up anytime soon.

What Are Your Opinions On Solar Shingles? Good?Why? Bad? Why? Anyone Have Them?
Wondering About These New Solar Shingles. Are They Better Than Solar Panels? Can You Cover The Whole Roof In Them? How Much Power Would They Supply? Any Other Info Welcome.

Solar shingles are made to look more like a conventional roof. The performance is similar to solar panels, but the position of your house will dictate the efficiency. With panels, you can fine tune the angle of incident. If your house is positioned right, then they will be OK and you can save the cost of regular shingles.

One thing to be aware of is the life of the shingle and the cost to replace/repair.

How Many Solar Panels Do I Need To Run A Air Conditioner?
115 Volts 15 Amps. Just Running In Day Without Battery And Get About 5 Hours Of Sun Light Or More.

1750 watts, and you will need that amount to run AT ALL. Any less than that and the unit will trip out and not run.

Also you need an inverter to make the 115AC, and realistically you need a battery as well. Otherwise any time a tiny cloud drift over the power will drop and the AC trips out.

So you are up for maybe $5,000 in panels, plus the regulator, inverter and at least a small battery. It's not a "field" of panels, but it's a fair chunk of a roof covered.

Is It Possible For A Solar Powered Car To Exist?
I Was Looking At A Calculator That Was Solar Powered The Other Day And I Wondered Why Cant There Be A Car That Is Solar Powered. I Know That Since It Is Solar Powered The Energy Obviously Has To Come From The Sun So I Thought Why Not Only Put The Cars Where It Is Always Sunny. The Solar Panels Could Go On The Roof.

No. At least not without a major break through.

A car, even with solar panels on the roof, hood and trunk would not have enough surface area to get enough sunlight to make the car run. Solar panels are just not that efficient, and work best in direct sunlight and in most places that is only for a couple hours a day(10am to 2pm). And you would need to keep the panels clean, and cars get dirty fast. and replace them often.

And there is the battery problem. The car would need a huge battery, that was very heavy. And the heaver the car, the more energy it takes to move the car. And a car alone is heavy, as it needs to stay on the road and not fly off the ground. And a battery loses power at night, even more so in the cold, so chances are the car would not start in the morning.
