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 daily life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many residents discover that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly decrease and even eliminate your electric costs

Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a great return on your investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense cost savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power costs have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a business or property owner with changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home or business value

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 progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for homes 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 an essential part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States 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 United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common domestic solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are essential components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and improving business results.

#9 Start Saving 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 opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility companies are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine how much electricity will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can You Store Solar Energy?
I'M Considering Buying Say A Little Kit From Costco But Want To Know The Rundown On How To Keep The Energy And How Long It Lasts? Can You Keep Filling Up Batteries With It And Stockpile Reserves In Case We Experience Rolling Power Outages? Thanks Any Info Helps

Solar power is usually stored in a battery system. The amount of power that can be stored is determined by the type and sized of the batteries installed.

http://www.installeco.com/solar-power/

How long that power can be stored is affected by "decay" - the discharge of power over time without usage. Newer batteries decay at a lower rate than older ones.

Will You Consider Buying A Solar Water Heater For Your House To Save The Environment? Why Or Why Not?

YES, I live in the SW..Arizona and our water system collects enough heat that you can completely turn off and drain your water heater for maybe four or five months out of the year and I see no rerason why you can not collect enough energy from the sun in winter to do you good for a few months too. You only need water to be 90F or so you do not need 160F unless you need to steril;ize something and you can get hw for that by bvoiling it on the stove. It makes common sense to me to use cheapest forms of energy possible.

Solar Energy Questions?
How Do We Use The Resource And How We Acquire The Resource On Solar Energy? Identify Advantages And Disadvantages Of The Solar Energy

Solar energy is captured by solar arrays which use large surface areas to either act as a heat ex-changer or generate electricity using photo-voltaic cells which convert solar radiation into direct current electricity using semiconductors by exciting materials and having them emit free electrons leading to a flow of electrons i.e. electricity.
Using solar energy to generate electricity is very uneconomical due to the large amount of materials needed to provide large enough arrays to generate a substantial amount of electricity the also produce nothing or very little with dark/ foggy/cloudy/rainy ect.
The surface area needed for effective application could be put to better use by building a nuclear power plant (since they are much more energy dense one 1000MWe nuke plant(est 100 acres)=20,000 acres or 31.25 square miles of solar arrays) and using the rest of the land that would previously be used for solar as agricultural, residential, or industrial purposes.

Why Are Wind And Solar Industries Receiving 55 Times More Government Subsidies Than Petroleum Energy Industry?
U.S. Taxpayer Subsidies Per Megawatt Hour (Mwh) Of Energy For Petroleum-Based Energy Was 44 Cents.... Yes..... 44 Pennies. Subsidy Per Mwh Of Energy For Wind/Solar Was 24 Dollars!! ... Not A Typo.... 24 Bucks$$!!! U.S. Taxpayers Are Being Bilked To Provide Welfare For A So-Called Renewable Energy Source That Is In The End..... Unreliable, Costly To Wildlife And The Environment, And Proven To Be Unhealthy For Human Health. When Is This Mad, Senseless Waste Of Hard-Earned Taxpayer'S Money Going To Stop?? Http://Www.Eia.Doe.Gov/Oiaf/Servicerpt/Subsidy2/Pdf/Chap5.Pdf

Why? Because wind and solar currently require subsidies to be competitive with coal and natural gas.

If at some point in the near future, wind and solar can become competitive without subsidies, they will gradually become a larger fraction of our electrical generating capacity.

If wind and solar can't become competitive, the subsidies will eventually become a sort of economic Ponzi scheme.

Solar Energy? Can People Use ..?
Can People Use Solar Energy All The Time? How Can We Solve This Problem?

No, "people" can not use solar energy all the time. "People" obviously is inclusive of those who happen to live in the extreme southern or northern hemisphere where during the winter months the sun will not rise for months. There are no batteries that will store enough electricity for these months of darkness. So no, solar power can not be used by all "people" at all times.
