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 daily life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. 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, numerous homeowners find that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically minimize or even eliminate your electric expenses

Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a big part of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Make a terrific return on your investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense savings, the typical American homeowner 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 capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power rates have actually increased by an average of three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a company or homeowner with fluctuating money flow, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your house worth

Several research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up 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 accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a fantastic way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce 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 each year.

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to run properly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer buying decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of house owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- 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 Financial investment

The energy business are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Efficiency Question! 10 Points For Best Answer!?
If I Had A Solar Panel That Was 20% Efficient How Much Energy Would It Give Me In One Day? Could It Power My House Alone? I Am So Confused Hahaha Please Help :)

Solar panel efficiency only means how much electrical power can be converted from the sun light power. 20% efficiency means that 80% of the sunlight is not converted into electricity, instead it is reflected or transformed into heat.

As for powering your home, you need to know how big the solar panel is, your power consumption at home, and your location. The higher north you live, the less sunlight power.

Can Anyone Help Me With Solar Panel And Other Means Of Saving Energy?
I'M Starting A Webhosting Community Letting People Host Their Own Sites Using My Service. Anyway Since I Don'T Like The Idea Having All My Servers Hosted Inside My Own All Of Them Will Be Outside My Backyard Inside A Portable Trailer And On Top Of The Trailer Would Be A Solar Panel Where The Question Comes In. My Servers Has To Run 24/7 None Stop Except If The Servers Needs To Be Repaired I Need Something That Would Conserve All The Electricity Into Some Kind Of Batteries That Can Keep The Server Running All Night And Recharge During The Day. Does Anyone Know How And Where Can I Buy These?

The best way is net metering, you sell excess power to the utilities and buy it back when you need it. It's a lot more efficient than batteries. Batteries have a 50% charge rate in that it takes twice as much power to recharge them. Server rooms also have to be cooled, the AC is actually more than half your energy use. You could use vacuum tube solar thermal collectors to drive absorption coolers with a natural gas backup but you'll find such a system to be quite expensive, it would probably cost you about $30,000 to have solar air conditioning when just $6,000 would be enough for a conventional system. You'll also find that it will take an awful lot of solar panels to do what you want and that's all money up front.

Solar Versus Wind Energy.?
Does Anyone Know Of Research Comparing The Cost-To-Power-Generated Of Wind Energy Versus Solar? Eg. Solar Produces $0.10 Of Power Savings For Every $1.00 Invested, While Wind Produces $0.12 Of Power Savings For Every Dollar Invested. There's A Lot Of Talk About The Two. Assuming There's Adequate Wind And Sunlight For Either, Which Gives A Consumer More Bang For The Buck?

www.detronics.net/wind_solar.pdf This web site gives a good comparison of the two (wind vs. solar).

Actually there is a third option for the individual home owner. It is geothermal. A little more costly to install but the savings go on for years in lower heating, cooling and electric bills. It also heats your hot water. It saves in the neighborhood of 30 to 40 per cent of your monthly bills after after the pay back period. The good thing about geothermal is that their is very little maintenance other than the normal furnace, cooling system cleaning. It is all natural since it uses the earth's heat of 55 degrees. The rest of the heat and cooling comes from your normal sources.

There is a lot of maintenance with the wind and I would imagine the solar also. I have always wanted to try a windmill. But it probably takes all kinds of permits and not a good idea in the area of the country I live in.

Ok I Have An Report About Pollution, Were Can I Go To Get Great Stories About Wat Pollution Is Doing To The Economy Or, Some Pouultion Solutions Out There, Wat Are Some Great Machines Being Created To Stop Pollution, Like Exp. Solar Power, Hybrid Cars, Ect.... Give Out Some Ideas If You Guys Can Plz...

Well pollution is a very broad topic, you are probably going to have to narrow it down. Perhaps consider focusing on either causes and effects of pollution or on alternative energy sources. Alternative energy sources is always a fun topic and there are many to choose from, including solar energy, wind energy, geothermal energy, hydropower, etc. Consider that not all of these alternatives are ideal or without negatives, so research them thoroughly. You should be able to find plenty of information on them by doing a yahoo or google search. You could also consider discussing nuclear power vs. coal power. Or you could discuss how pollution has become a commodity, as companies can get away with excessive polluting by buying pollution "points" from cleaner companies.

American Energy Vs. The American Environment ?
I Have To Write A Paper On American Energy Vs. The American Environment And I Need Some Ideas. Everyone Is Talking About Yellowstone. Any Other Idea Of What I Could Write My Paper On? Thanks

I would probably just write a basic paper on nuclear power vs. nuclear waste, and clean alternatives such as solar and wind as methods of preserving the environment.

Modern nuclear power has come a long way, see sources.
