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 clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly lower or perhaps remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#2 Make a terrific return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy bill 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 Secure versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, property electricity prices have increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your home or business worth

Numerous studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand 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 key part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate variations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal property solar panel system will get rid of 3 to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are important components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of customer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and improving business outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

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

With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can compute how much electrical power will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 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.

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 Don'T Scientists Use The Design Of A Tree For Solar Panels?
Since Plants Have Been Populating This Earth For The Past 475 Million Years I Think They Have Evolved To Gain The Most Sun With Their Greenery. If Scientists Used Heat Sensors To Find The Hot Spots Of Trees And Trim All Of The Leaves That Don'T &Quot;Provide&Quot; For The Plant, Then Maybe That Trimmed Tree Could Be Used To Become A Solar &Quot;Panel&Quot;. I Believe That Each Individual Leaf Could Be Replaced By A Small Solar Panel And The Wood Of The Tree Would Be Wiring That Would Root All Of The Solar Panels To A Generator.

solar panels do not use generators, but i like your idea, very creative.though i don't see the practicality of this being used commercially, i think it would make a great solar promotional piece though!

off-subject, it is time we stop looking at the upfront costs of things and start looking at what the long term costs are. most green-technology, although expensive at first, end up saving tons of resources and actually increase profits of businesses! studies show that people who work in a green building tend to be happier which benefits health, more excited to go to work due to the business's environmental ethics, are more productive because of natural lighting, and are more efficient because more work is getting done. green buildings can actually boost the efficiency of a business! thus saving tons of money and reducing tons of waste. Doesn't this just make sense to you?

Who Knows About Sollar Rolls?
They Are Solar Panels

Helianthos is the name of the development of flexible solar cell modules which can be manufactured via roll-to-roll processes on long foil substrates. The development is carried out by an industrial core group which is supported by universities, know how institutes and other partners.

The key to the development is the use of a temporary substrate on which flexible thin film solar cells are deposited. The use of the temporary substrate allows to use relatively high processing temperatures while using (semi-)continuous roll-to-roll (or reel-to-reel) production processes and cost efficient abundantly available materials.

The active layers of such solar cells comprise a transparent conductive oxide layer (TCO) and active absorber layer (e.g. thin film silicon) and a back contact layer (e.g. a reflective metal layer).

Solarrollers : Driven mode of locomotion by a single motor; Solar-powered BEAMbots that attempt to complete a fairly short, straight and level course in the shortest amount of time. They are driven by a 'solar engine' circuit; the circuit is designed so that it charges up energy gained from the solar panels and then releases it in one continuous burst. The two main types of solar engines are the FLED engine, which uses a flashing LED to regulate the power, and a 1381 engine, which uses a 1381 voltage regulator to decide when to release the energy.

How Is Solar Energy Obtained?
Where And How Could Solar Energy Be Used

Through the heat of the sun as it excites molecules in a solar device. It;s very slow and produces very low amounts of energy.

Do Solar Panels Go Bad If Not Used?
If U Buy Solar Panels And Never Take Em Out Of The Box For Like Thirty Years Will They Still Work Good Thirty Years After You Bought Them

I'm answering for conventional silicon solar panels, the only kind I really know. The panels are basically semiconductor, wire, glass, and aluminum housing. The last three, everyone knows have long lifetimes if not exposed to the elements. As for the semiconductor part, the degradation is generally due to exposure to the sun. And even so, some solar panels from the 70's are still working today. Usually, what does them in is failure of a connection due to vibration, degradation of the plastic due to heat, sun, or water exposure, or accidents.

The question of how useful the panels would be after 30 years is different, though. I have Germanium transistors from 50 years ago - they're still good, but their specs are really lame by modern standards. And suppose you had a PC from 25 years ago. Original cost, $4000, no hard disk, only runs DOS off a 5 1/4 floppy disk. It works great, but except as a curiosity, is it useful?

The batteries that most people use to store solar energy are lead-acid. The technology has not changed much in 30 years. If you had such batteries in storage, that had *never* been activated (that it, they were dry, no acid had been added yet), I would not be surprised if they would be fine after that period of time. If the batteries were activated, no, they would not keep. But maybe battery breakthroughs are coming with other chemistries, so those batteries would seem clunky and useless 30 years from now.
