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 everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, many homeowners discover that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably minimize and even remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large portion of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous ten years, residential electricity costs have actually increased by approximately three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your house worth

Several studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

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

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common residential solar panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are very important parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer getting choices, producing goodwill and improving business results.

#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 cash down.

Lots of homeowners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider 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 Investment

The utility business are infamous for their changing and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

I Need Help With Solar Panels?
Hi Today I Was Using My Bb Gun And Shot My Dads Solar Panel. I Want To Fix It For Him Because He Spent A Lot Of Time Trying To Get The Solar Panels. All I Broke Was The Glass On The Front, What Is The Glass And Where Can I Buy New Glass For It?

Is it a solar water heater (with water running through it) or a solar electric panel (makes electricity)? If it is a solar water heater, you can buy tempered glass from a local glass dealer. If it is solar electric, it is probably cheaper to buy a new panel than trying to repair it. Read the label on the back of the panel to determine what model it is. If it is less than 140 watts, you may be able to have one shipped to you. If it is bigger than that, it will be expensive to ship just one panel, as it has to go by truck, you may be able to find a local place that sells them.

Where To Find Used Solar Panels?

Used solar panels can be effective, provided they are in good condition. Make sure to test them for effectiveness before paying though, so you don't get ripped off.

What Is Solar Energy Used For?
Give A List Of How Solar Energy Is Used In Daily Life.

Solar energy is used by plants to generate oxygen and food sugars, without which all animal life will die. Solar energy is used by the human body in the production of Vitamin D and seratonin, both essential for body construction and mood elevation.

Aside from that, solar energy may be captured by mirrors to generate heat, even enough in a solar furnace to melt metals. It can also be focused on silicon panels to generate direct current electricity that may be stored or converted into alternating current electricity. Solar energy can also be captured by plant life, then combusted to generate steam for electricity or burned in vehicles from the methane or hydrogen produced from treatment of the plant materials.

How Much Co2 Is Produced When Solar Panels Are Manufactured?
I Know I'Ve Read This In An Article Somewhere, But I Can'T For The Life Of Me Find It Again... When A New Solar Panel Is Manufactured, The Materials Must First Be Mined, Refined, Assembled Into Components, Transported To A Factory, And Combined To Make The Final Product. This All Requires Energy, The Vast Majority Of Which Comes From Fossil Fuels. How Much Co2 (On Average) Does This Process Release Into The Atmosphere? My Real Interest Is In How Much Co2 Would Be Released If The The U.S. Replaced All Non-Transportation Energy Supplies With Solar Power Simultaneously, But The Answer To My First Question Is A Good Start.

From here http://www.nrel.gov/docs/fy04osti/35489.... I get that 1 kW of panels needs 4000 - 6000 kWh of energy for its manufacture and distribution. The article suggests an energy payback time of 1-4 years, but the article is old, and contemporary panels are more efficient in their use of materials.

The equivalent in CO2 depends where that energy came from in the first place. If it was from a nuclear or hydroelectric plant, then the CO2 is nil. If it was from a coal-burning plant, figure 1.5 lbs. of CO2 per kWh

Philippines: Companies Which Install Solar Panels For Homes?
How Much Does It Cost? Is It Reliable? If You Also Have Their Address And Phone Number, Please Include. Thank You Very Much :)

Most of the listings on the Net were in the years 2007 and 2008, and so far I found only this Solar Electric Co (SOLARCO) 724 48 12, run by a certain Mr.Puckett.

You might also try the Green Architecture Movement, United Architects of the Philippines, at 53 Scout Rallos, QC 4126364, 3721796, for better info.

Costs may have come down from P70 thou and P60thou that they mentioned in 2007, but I am not sure.

Solar panel manufacturing could still be in the infancy stage, although big players like the Lopez Group and Shell Philippines are already in the field. Home use involves the solar panel plus battery plus inverters, although someone suggests to change some home wiring to 12V rather than go for inverters. There were also suggestions that China made appliances like airconditioning and refrigerators are available, running on solar power.
