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 air conditioning system, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, many residents find that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize and even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free 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 lower your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power rates have actually increased by approximately 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Several studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost changes in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that opt to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer buying decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many house owners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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 companies are infamous for their varying and unreliable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can determine just how much electricity will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

In California After 2020 Every Newly Built House Is Required To Have Solar Panels.What About Houses Th?
That Are Located In Not-So-Sunny Cities Like In Daily City,Bay Area ? Would They Need To Have Solar Panels As Well Even Though The Number Of Sunny Days In That City(Per Year) Can Be Counted On 4 Fingers ? Anyone Knows What The Name Of That Bill Is And Where I Can Read Details About Exceptions ?

You cannot find that law because it does not exist. (I am baffled by people who think that because something is said in a Y!A question it must be true.) California has adopted a standard that 33% of electric production should be from renewable sources (not just solar) by 2020. No state law mandates the use of solar panels. Some cities have done so as part of their zoning requirements for new construction. As you might suspect, these are in areas that get a lot of sun, like Lancaster:

However, just FYI, Daly City is sunny over 70% of the time, and averages 261 sunny days a year, above the national average of 205.

San Francisco State Vs Cal State East Bay?
Question Says It All. Most Of My Classmates Who Didn'T Want San Jose State Got Excepted, But When I Wanted It, I Didnt -____- So, I Live In Berkeley And I Have A Choice Between Sfsu And Cal State East Bay. Which One Would You Choose And Why. I'M Probably Going To Be Commuting Using Bart. Bart Fares: Sfsu: $8 A Day. East Bay: $6.50 A Day. I Don'T Really Mind About The Price But I Just Wnt To Get In The Better School. Thanks.

We agree with "ownpool"!

The Princeton Review selected Cal State East Bay as a "Best in the West" college in 2010 for the sixth consecutive year. The report is based on surveys of current students, who noted the following highlights about our University: affordable tuition, small class sizes, and a multicultural community. Princeton Review also rated Cal State East Bay as a "Best Business School" in 2010, for the fourth year in a row.

U.S. News & World Report recognized as a "top–tier" institution among master's–granting universities in the West annual "America's Best Colleges" guide. In the 2009 guide, Cal State East Bay was noted for its exceptionally diverse student body, ranking as the second-most diverse master's-granting university in the Western region.

Under the direction of President Mohammad H. Qayoumi, CSUEB is striving to become a model of sustainability. You may have read the news last week that California Public Utilities Commission approved a PG&E fuel cell for installation on our Hayward campus which makes CSUEB one of the first college campuses in Northern California to have a fuel cell. Already, CSUEB holds one of the largest collections of solar electric panels in Northern California thanks to a record $3.4 million rebate from PG&E in 2004. Zipcar just launched on campus earlier this month offering a convenient, economical and environmentally friendly alternative to owning a car.

Faculty members are not only dedicated to their students but to also pursing advancement within their research areas. Professor of Geography & Environmental Studies Karina Garbesi participates in energy analysis at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Forbes magazine wrote about Accounting and Finance Professor Jerry Lui’s research on Google stock manipulation. Professor of Biological Sciences Chris Kitting is participating in his second NASA mission in June 2010. Since 1997, David Stronck, professor of teacher education, has received more than $1 million in funding from Genentech Inc. to improve and expand science education in Bay Area schools. If you watch Bay Area news stations, you have a good chance of seeing Economist Stephen Shmanske or Political Science Professor Elizabeth Bergman commenting on topical events.

We invite you to take a campus tour and see CSUEB for yourself. http://www20.csueastbay.edu/prospective/...

What You All Think About Solar Industry? Why The Cost Is Still So High?
What You All Think About Solar Industry? Why The Cost Is Still So High In Usa? Because Politic? I Plan To Build A Solar Plant In Southeast Asia To Manufacure Solar Supplies, So We Are In U.S.Much Better To Have A Low Cost Supplies Since Our Energy Demand Is Increased By Time And So High Here. Residents In Us. To Store A Solar System Here Cost Ranges From 30K To 50K Mimimum For A Home From 1500 To 3000 Square Feets. I Would Like To Bring This Cost Down At Least 50% So Every Middle Class Or Low Class Families Can Afford It. What Do You Think About My Idea? Anh Anyone Of You Are Interesting In Joining My Project? Please Email To [email protected]

The price is so high for photovoltaic cells because of the precious materials used in them: Platinum, Rubidium, etc. This will not come down because there is a limited supply of these (and Platinum is often wasted in jewelery just like diamond. Both of these materials have great properties for commercial and scientific products but the price is inflated because they look shinny).
There are ways to make copper/copper oxide solar panels, but copper price is on the rise, too.

The best way to capture solar energy is with mirror farms and greenhouse farms. The mirrors focus the sun's light on a central point, and is used to boil oil, which passes through a turbine. The greenhouses use greenhouse material over a large area. The air inside is warmed, and will rise through an elevated opening and through a turbine.

So, I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but individual solar power will probably still be a luxury item into the near future. Building large solar farms and adding them into the grid just like any coal or gas plant is probably the most efficient solution.
