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 use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, numerous property owners find that the benefit, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower or even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary 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 minimize your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of money.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have actually increased by approximately three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with rising and falling money circulation, going solar likewise assists you better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your house value

Numerous studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped 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 crucial part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate changes in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to run properly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer getting choices, developing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many house owners choose to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy business are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Financing

What are the various payment options?

We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

The Lease

  • Low, fixed payments each month
  • System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance
  • Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

  • We own the solar panel system
  • $0 down for installation
  • Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use

Purchase

  • Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
  • System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
  • Receive 30% federal tax credit
  • See a return on investment within 7-10 years

What happens when the contract for my lease is finished?

We provide our customers with a few different options for when their lease contract is up. Customers can upgrade their equipment to the newest solar technology available, extend the agreement, or have the panels removed at no cost.

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

Solar Energy Money Saving?
For A School Project My Group And I In Class Had To Think Of A Way To Help Reduce Or Stop An Environmental Issue So My Group Decided We Were To Install Solar Panels On Our School Roof, A 5Kw Installation That Costs $50,000 (We Fund Raised And Have A Grant Which Will Cover The Costs) I Was Wondering How Much Money And Energy This Would Save Us Each Year? I Need To Know For Our Powerpoint Presentation, Any Help Will Be Gladly Appreciated Thanks.

Knock about 20% off the peak power rating to calculate what you'll really get from the array, considering the way panels are usually specified too optimistically, and system efficiency. So for you, let's say 4 kW is the real power.

Then go to this site:

http://rredc.nrel.gov/solar/old_data/nsr...

and choose Average, Annual, south-facing tilted at latitude (or whatever is appropriate), and look at the map. The map will show you how many peak-equivalent hours of sun you get in your area. Let's say the number is 6 for now, but you can look up the real number.

4 * 6 = 24 kWh average per day you should expect. This number is averaged over the whole year, so counts rainy days, winter, and everything else. Multiply 24 * 365 to find the kWh per year. Then check with your school office for how much the school pays per kWh, and you'll have your cost savings per year.

If you've already raised the money, you might just use the 5 kW number, to get an optimistic savings per year. This will make the donors feel good. Also emphasize how long the system will last - long enough for students today to have kids of their own attending the school.

What Does This Question Mean?
Im Writing A Paper For My Energy And Scientific Method Class And Its On Solar Energy. One Of The Things I Have To Discuss Is The Prospects For Increased Use Of Solar Energy And The Factors Affecting These Prospects. What Does This Mean? Please Explain Thank You

Hmm what would increased use of solar energy mean to the population, what factors include cost, production means (jobs), need for repair, etc

If Pursuing Alternative Energy (Solar, Wind, Etc) Have A Lot Of Benefits, Why Do Some People Still Oppose It?
Wouldn't It Create More Jobs And Be Better For The Environment, And Also Reduce Dependency On Foreign Oil? What Are Some Reasons Why Some People Are Against Alternative Energy?

Alternative energy is much like alternative medicine in that it isn't really any good (you're assuming it has a lot of benefits when it turns out that it doesn't (unless you're a coal miner whose job would go were a switch to nuclear power to occur)).

Hydro and geothermal work OK but only for limited areas (and high levels of hydro are one of the things that countries with low CO2 emissions tend to have along with high levels of nuclear) and we're probably not going to be able to build much new hydro in the developed world due to environmental reasons.

Wind turns out to be almost useless due to the low reliability (and people are starting to realise that it is useless) since it requires either energy storage technology (pumped hydro which is all we have isn't really good enough) or fossil fuel backup (which means you still have to emit CO2 when the wind isn't blowing) and that fossil fuel backup is usually simple cycle gas turbines (converting them to combined cycle and removing the wind turbines would probably reduce CO2 emissions).

Of course there are times when wind power is built without sufficient spinning reserve, such as in Texas which has been having to do load shedding of big industrial customers when the wind stops (that's a pretty big deal) due to their 3% wind power suddenly going off-line. Wind doesn't look like it's capable of even 5% of a grid without energy storage technology.

Solar is less unreliable than wind but if your solar panels are on Earth they only work less than half the time (though there is a bit more predictability in terms of when the clouds are going to role in and when it'll be night than there is with wind), of course PV happens to be about the most expensive way to generate electricity on Earth (only Pu238 RTGs cost more and those things are pretty much restricted to the space program (and used where solar can't work)).

Biofuels really screw up food prices and when deforestation is taken into account turn out to emit more CO2 than oil. A lot of them (e.g. wood) are very polluting (enough to justify a ban on wood fired heaters).

Other reasons to be against alternative energy are NIMBY issues like hydroelectric dams requires flooding people's homes (and risk to those who live downstream), wind turbines producing a lot of noise (and possible negative health effects from infrasonics (more study is needed though)) along with a strobe light effect to those who live near them (an exclusion zone would probably work though) as well as opposition to the transmission lines used to get the power from the remote environmental sources of energy to the grid (the health effects from power lines have been investigated and found to not exist but that doesn't stop people from fearing them). Those issues would be minor issues if the alternative energy sources actually were useful (i.e. we could deal with them) but with useless energy sources that's too big a price to pay.

The large scale of most alternative energy projects also causes significant environmental problems, wind turbines are stealing energy from the wind and solar power plants often require trees to be cut down (then there are the bird and bat death issues with wind power and the waste issues of solar panel production (a solar panel is a big silicon chip)) whereas we should be using an energy source that is concentrated enough for mining and waste disposal to be of minimal impact.

"Wouldn't it create more jobs"
So what? Doing pretty much anything can create jobs.

Personally I'd rather have as few people as possible work in the energy industry, that way we could have more people doing other jobs. You basically just want to waste human resources.

Besides, wind turbines are actually a lot more dangerous than most people realise, quite a few people have died installing and maintaining them.

"and be better for the environment,"
All that alternative energy does is distract people from nuclear fission which is a proven technology that actually can provide the energy we need, where we need it, when we need it. If not for the belief that wind and solar were viable we'd have probably replaced most of the fossil fuel burning power plants on the planet with nuclear by now (and therefore have already largely solved the global warming problem).

"and also reduce dependency on foreign oil?"
Pretty much no electricity is actually generated from oil (which is primarily a transportation fuel) so that leaves biofuels which create new problems with the food supply, dependence on foreign oil is quite a bit better than causing famines in the third world.

Solar Energy For Free? I Was?
I Was Told By Someone That It May Be Possible To Have Solar Energy Installed On My Home For Free. Nothing In Life Is Free Of Course, But I Was Wondering If Anyone Had Any Information About This. I Plan On Moving To The Country And Would Love To Be Self Sufficient. Well Water, Propane And Solar Energy Would Be Great. Can Anyone Tell Me If They Know About Programs To Install Solar Energy For Homes At No Cost Or Very Low Cost To Me.

There are programs where the solar system is installed on your building for free and you sign a contract agreeing to purchase your power over the life of the system at a fixed price, which is lower than what would be anticipated for the total price of that power if purchased from the utility. This has been popular with businesses (like Whole Foods Markets) and is just starting to catch on with residential. It's win-win because the company installing the system will be selling the energy back to the utility at market prices, and anticipates its profit margin to rise as energy prices do. You win because you still save on your monthly bill and are consuming clean energy. The bottom line is instead of fronting the cost of the system, you amortize the total cost of the system out over its lifetime, having a hedge against the unpredictability of the energy market.

Being self-sufficient is another matter. In order for the above system to work, you still have to be connected to the grid, for the company to sell the power back to the utility. Moreover, the cost of a self-contained system is much, much higher because it includes batteries, which need maintenance and replacement and ventilation, and more electronics. The cost of that part of the system (which would allow you to use 100% of your solar power, even if connected to the grid) offers no additional benefit to the installer and would probably have to be borne by the homeowner.

Roofer Says It's The Material, Shingle Guys Says Only 2 Bad Shingles! What To Do?
Full New Roof Job In April. 30 Years Shingles.Reputable Roofers.3 Months Later, Went On Roof And Few Shingles Were Completely Separating, Flopping In Breeze, But Also All Layers Of Shingle Were Separated, So You Could See All The (What Should Be Laminated Into A Shingle) But Was Now Multiple Layers Of Fabric And "Stuff". Rest Of Roof Looked "Worn". Like The Chips Were Worn Away As If Many Years Old, Except Under The Side Where The Trees Are. I Called The Roofer. He Came Out. Wow. He Said It Was Very Strange, He'd Never Seen Anything Like It, And Made An Appt For The Manufacture Rep To Come Out. That Guy Got On The Roof, Noticed At Once That The Chips Were Worn Away And Asked If I'd Been Having "Alot Of Traffic" On The Roof! When He Got Around To Seeing The Flopping Shingles, He Said They Needed To Be Nailed Down Better. After Insisting He Actually Go Near The Shingles, He Saw They Were Completely Deteriorated & Said He Would Check Into It. I Gave Him The Lot # From A Bag I Had Kept From The Job Site. After Not Hearing Back From Either Guy For Weeks, I Tracked The Roofer Down & Was Told The Rep Said That The 2 Bad Shingles Were The Only Bad Shingles In The Lot, And That He'd Told The Roofer To Simply Replace Them And The Rep Would Pay For It. That Was A Month Ago, Not A Peep From Anyone, And I Don't Feel Too Confident That A 30 Year Roof That Lasts 3 Months, And Is Already Worn Away (Except The Part That Gets No Exposure To Any Sun Or Elements) Is Going To Be Just Fine.. And That There Were Only 2 Bad Shingles In The Lot. The Rep Blamed Me For "Heavy Traffic" And The Roofer For Not Nailing Properly, Before He Ever Looked At The Shingles. So, Who Will Come Look At The Shingles And Be Able To Decide Who Handles This??? I Think It's A Materials Issue, But The Materials Place Doesn't Answer To The Registrar Of Contractors And The Company Treated Me Like Garbage When I Called Them. I Want To Put Solar Panels Up Before The End Of The Year But Definitely Don't Want To Put Them On Top Of Faulty Shingles! Help!!! Please!

After 25 years in the building business I can tell you the first thing to happen in these cases is finger pointing and blame game. I have played this game with company reps and they first thing they try to do is insinuate improper installation. Heavy traffic on a roof is never a good thing but if you're seeing shingles separating and coming apart that's a manufacturing defect that needs to be addressed by the shingle company. Remember the shingles are made in lots and if two are failing others might too. I hate to say it but you need to get tough with your roofer and ask him to get tough with the supplier. If the roofer fails to come through you should not hesitate to call the rep and rip him a new one and insist on a new roof at his expense. I guarantee he will be more responsive if he thinks you are pushing for a new roof. Don't back down and if you need to yell at someone do it. Good luck :)
