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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, many property owners find that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably decrease and even remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, property electricity prices have actually increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar also assists you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your house worth

Numerous research studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly 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, need for properties 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 a crucial component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is an excellent way to reduce 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 photovoltaic panel system will remove three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to run responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of customer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing service results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are notorious for their varying and unreliable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can determine how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Solar Intensity?
What Is The Definition? Is Solar Intensity In A Way Connected To Temperature Or Uv Rays, Or Any Other Things That Might Affect The Human Body Negatively? I Need This For My Project, Thank You!

The definition in units is watts/m^2. That means all the energy in the form of radiation that is emitted from the Sun that hits the Earth. That means all wavelengths of radiation. That means all the nasty ones, like UV, X-rays and gamma rays just to name a few...

The Equator Receives What Solar Energy Than Do The Poles?

I am not sure what you are asking, but I will take a stab.

The equatorial areas are good for solar because of the amount of light rec'd during the day. As you get toward the polar regions, you have fluations of season with a lot of light followed by seasons with little or no light, with the sun lower on the horizon which makes it harder to capture.

What Impact Does Solar Energy Have On Humans, Animals And Landscape?
Please Who Ever Gives Me The Best Answer, I Will Choose As The Best Question

Solar energy is one of the cleanest energy sources available. There is a small amount of pollution created in the making of panels but it is very small compared to other energy sources. Once installed there is no pollution created whatsoever for the next 25-50 years. At the end of life all the components can be recycled relatively inexpensively so from a pollution point of view the impact on the environment is very favorable.

Probably the main impact that solar power might have is that it will create shade. In my case I have solar panels mounted on my roof and so the shade is just on my shingles. In some areas though solar panels are mounted in large fields. That will favor shade loving plants and might actually help wild animals by offering them shade in very sunny areas.

The impact on humans are that for a one-time cost you get free electric power for the rest of your life. I installed my solar panels 4 years ago and since then they have generated about $4000 worth of electricity. Because they have increased the value of my house by more than I paid for them they have already paid for themselves and all that power is free.

D) No Heat Energy Is Exchanged Between The Atmosphere And The Water Vapor.

1-c [release of stored energy means the body becomes colder]
2-c [latent heat of vaporization is greater than latent heat of fusion]
3-a [not too sure, but storage of solar energy in water bodies are increasing, for mild heating etc]
4-b [similar to question 1]

hope this helped.

What Does It Mean To Conserve Energy?
Have To Write An Essay And The Intro Needs To Be On Conserving Energy. Any Points?

Conservation of energy basically means optimization of usage of all forms of energy concentrating more on non renewable sources of energy, as they cannot be generated quickly and demand is increasing day by day.
Water energy- These days we find wastage of water to its maximum extent,this should be avoided as it is the source of electricity generation.
Solar energy- we should concentrate more on its usage as it is ever lasting energy source.
Non renewable energy- this is the category which requires main attention as it is on the way of depletion.its consumption should be minimized.
Renewable energy- this also must be used with proper planning as though it can be generated in a period of time but sudden depletion of this may indirectly effect non renewable energy source. For basic tips follow
