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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, enjoying 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 significant, many homeowners discover that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower and even remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a property owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs 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 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy prices have actually gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home or business value

Numerous research studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, 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 development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that pick to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer buying decisions, creating goodwill and improving service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous homeowners choose to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

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

With solar panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most notably, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Financing

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

Why Are Solar Cells So Expensive?

The price is coming down. In the 70's, it was $100 per watt, but in the 80's, it was only $20 per watt. Now, it's $4 per watt.

There is a way to calculate a cost per kilowatt-hour for solar. You take the price of a system, and divide it by the total kWh's you expect the system to produce over its lifetime. By such measures, solar electricity is about 50% to 100% more expensive than general grid power. It will, of course, be cheaper in some areas and situations. When solar electricity comes down to the same cost as the average household would pay the electric company, there will be a huge demand for solar, because it will only get cheaper from there. This point is called "grid parity."

I think we should hit grid parity in 2-4 years, both because solar is getting cheaper, and other energy is getting more expensive.

I Want To Set Up An Off Grid Power System For My House?
I Am Wondering What Is The Best Way To Go About This. I Am Pondering Solar, And Wind Power. My House Will Be About 5200 Sq Ft When It Is Finished And Will Be Very Energy Efficient. Does Anybody Know Of A System That Is Cost Effective For These Types Of Applications? Any Advice Or Insight Would Help. Thanks

use wind if you have the site for it, it will be very efficent and practical.... total economic payback time will be 2-4 years. anywhere between $1000-$20000
Solar will be a lot more costly with a total economic payback time of about 20-25 years, a total system will cost minimum $15000 and up to 50k depending how much you need.
Look into evacuated tubes for solar hot water systems.
http://www.solarlord.com.au
Good evacuated tube company.
They look better and are much more efficent and work good in cold and cloudy weather.
These are best systems to heat your hot water which is largest energy consumer in the home. Also these do heating, I would have a look at getting hydronic heating under the slabs as this is most efficent way to evenly heat your house and you can set up solar evacuated tube heating systems very cheap.
Hope this helps.

Hydrogen Uses, World-Wide, Locally, And Inside Our Homes...?
1. How Can We Use Hydrogen World-Wide As An Energy Source? 2. How Can We Use Hydrogen Locally (In Sacramento Area) As An Energy Source? 3. How Can We Use Hydrogen To Make Our Homes More Energy Efficient?

Don't think of hydrogen as an energy source - think of it as an energy transfer mechanism. We can make hydrogen from water by electrolysis or from methane (natural gas), but it takes energy to make hydrogen. If you use a low carbon footprint (nuclear, solar, wind, hydro electric) power source to make hydrogen, then when you burn it either in a combustion engine or a fuel cell (latter is more efficient at recovering the energy) then the byproduct is water - (a combustion engine can produce other noxious gases even though the fuel is hydrogen because it uses air - a mixture of several gases including oxygen...) Hydrogen by itself is not an easy gas to work with - it is a very small molecule, so what would be gas tight to natural gas, might leak like a sieve to hydrogen. It also is subject to an odd phenomena called the Joule-Thompson Effect - it actually heats up when expanding rather than cooling as most gases do - not exactly a great idea if you are expanding it into an oxygen rich atmosphere like your house when you are not expecting to; plus it burns with a flame that is well into ultraviolet - so it looks clear to your eyes, but is incredibly hot... I am reasonably OK with using it in cars via fuel cells - provided the storage technology is reasonably crashproof - but electricity wins the day for most household applications...

Do You Have An Electric Boat?
While A Significant Majority Of Water Vessels Are Powered By Diesel Engines, With Sail Power And Gasoline Engines Also Remaining Popular, Boats Powered By Electricity Have Been Used For Over 120 Years. Electric Boats Were Very Popular From The 1880S Until The 1920S, When The Internal Combustion Engine Took Dominance. Since The Energy Crises Of The 1970S, Interest In This Quiet And Potentially Renewable Marine Energy Source Has Been Increasing Steadily Again, Especially As Solar Cells Became Available, For The First Time Making Possible Motorboats With An Infinite Range Like Sailboats. The First Practical Solar Boat Was Probably Constructed In 1975 In England.

There are many large and powerful electric boats in service but it is doubtful if any are in private hands other than a few in museums. All submarines which are not nuclear powered are electric boats. The world's first successful submarine was built in New Jersey by the Electric Boat Company now called General Dynamics. Many foreign countries including Russia, The Netherlands, The UK etc. either bought Electric Boat Company submarines or took out licences to build to the Electric Boat Company's designs.
All of them are propelled by electric motors, driven either from storage batteries when submerged or from diesel-generators, (similar to a railway locomotive's power system) when surfaced. It is because of the historical association with the Electric Boat Company that in the Royal Navy, all submarines are referred to as 'boats' and not ships.

Solar Energy Question?
This Is For A Project And I Say They Will Use More Solar Energy And Less, I Need Help! Question: From What You Learned About The Energy Source Or Device, Describe In Your Own Words What Will Be The Future For Humans Using These Types Of Devices Or Energy Sources. (Energy Source/Device: Solar Energy) I Say They Will Use Less And More (Can'T Decide) Will They Use More Or Less? And Why?

I think that it will gradually transition from one to the other. At first, solar panels will be relatively inefficient, but I think they have a lot of potential. Those who rely on solar panels would at first have an unreliable power source, but, as solar technology advances they will eventually have an advantage over fossil fuel users.

Good luck on your project.
If you can give me more details, I would be happy to give you a more detailed answer.
Also, what grade are you in, and what subject is the project in?
