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.

"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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, many property owners find that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce or perhaps remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenses. 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 One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of money.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power prices have gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a business or homeowner with ever-changing money flow, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home or business value

Numerous research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate variations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market 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 nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks 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 a great method 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 typical domestic solar panel system will remove three to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are important elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and improving organisation 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 money down.

Many property owners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Should People In Prisons Pay The Country Back By Manufacturing & Building Solar Panels To Be Given Citizens?
I Just Read A Question That Sparked This Thought. I'Ve Had It Before But It Seems To Make Sense. Give Prisoners A Way To Make A Little Money So They Are Better Off When They Get Out & Create Energy For The Country At The Same Time? Say Making Deep Cycle Batteries, Rectifiers & Solar Panels? A Constructive Outlet & Hope Will Help Prisoners. They Will Still Be Punished By Loss Of Freedom, But Maybe The Loss Of All Future & Butt Rape Spreading Aids Is Something We Could Eliminate From Their Punishment? This Would Obviously Only Work If The Public Grabbed Politicians By The Necks & Went To Tossing Them In With The Prisoners If They Tried To Exploit This, Especially By Finding Reasons To Toss People In Jail & Using The Work To Profit Themselves. Progressives Have Turned Prisons Into A Place Where People Go To Be Changed Into Huge Burdens On Society So They Can Help Crush The System. I Think We Can Do Better. Make Prison Like The Military. You Follow Orders Or You'Re ******, If You Really **** Up You Get Shot And Cremated And No One Has To Bother With Your Dead Ender *** Ever Again. A Kinder & Gentler Nation With A Low Tolerance For Corruption & A Lot Less Bullshit. That'S What We Need.

I like the idea of prisoners doing things like picking up trash on the roadside or cleaning up rivers. Perhaps picking fruit (the jobs that undocumented workers do because they don't pay enough for Americans to make a living wage) etc. But Manufacturing jobs should go to people that haven't committed crimes.

In short I'm for using prison labor as long as it's not used to compete with workplace jobs

What Is The Most Cost-Effective Place To Buy Large Solar Electric Panels?
We Don'T Have Enough Money Right Now To Buy Capacity For The Whole House, Which Would Probably Require About 12 Kilowatts. However, I Would Like To Start Buying Panels Toward Building Up Toward That. But I Want To Buy The Most Solar Panel For The Least Price. I Think That Piecing A Lot Of Very Small Panels Together Will Be A Very Expensive Way To Do It. Does Anyone Know The Least Expensive Way To Buy Large Solar Electric Panels?

Great answers here. Just to summarize, in order of priority:

1) Reduce usage first. For every $1 you spend on conservation, that's about $4 less you need to spend on your solar system. It costs less to use less electricity than to make your own.

2) Research solar hot water. Solar hot water is ~ 85% efficient, as opposed to ~20% for solar electric. You get a better bang for your buck installing solar thermal than solar electric.

3) Install solar electric. Prices for solar panels have dropped dramatically this year as the demand in Europe has dropped and people are having trouble getting home equity loans in the US. You can get better pricing if you buy by the pallet (depending on the panel, 20 - 30 panels). You are right that you don't need to generate all that you use, and if you do steps 1 and 2, you'll be using less anyways.

Which Is A Better Way To Use Solar Energy, Mass-Production Or Individual Home Usage?
I Know We Need To Put A Ton Of Effort Towards Research In Renewable Energy, Specifically Solar. But When It Actually Becomes A Viable Alternative To Oil, And We Can ~Store~ Solar Energy Efficiently, Would It Be Best Put To Use Atop Individual Homes And Buildings, Or As A Source Of Electricity For Whole Cities?

The biggest problem you have with large solar installations is finding a large area near a major population center. In many cases the town councils love the IDEA of solar energy BUT just don't want the solar energy farm IN THEIR TOWN!

In terms of efficiency, a large solar installation is far more efficient than solar panels on everybody's roof.

However in this case the Political decision ends up trumping the Engineering decision.
