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 homeowner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothing, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, many home owners find that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly reduce and even remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy prices have increased by an average of 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a service or house owner with changing capital, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home or business value

Several studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar 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 element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks 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 development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is an excellent method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that select to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer buying decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing service results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous homeowners pick to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

As of 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 infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Maintenance Do Solar Panels Require?
How Often Do Solar Panels Need To Be Replaced Or Repaired Roughly? Is It Costly To Do So?

I'm assuming you're asking about solar electric. If I'm wrong, just ask another question specifying water heating solar.

Solar panels today come with a 25-year performance warranty. Here's a warranty example http://ap.suntech-power.com/images/stori... . That means that not only do they guarantee the panel won't completely die, they guarantee that it will deliver a certain amount of power. That suggests that manufacturers expect most panels to last longer than 25 years.

Our panels have been up a little over 5 years - no trouble yet.

In a dirty location, or where the panels are mounted flat, occasional cleaning may be required. In many place, the morning dew and slant of the panels is enough to keep them clean. In my limited experiments with our panels, I saw little difference in power production between a panel that appeared dingy to the eye, and one that was just cleaned.

There is a component called an inverter used in most solar power systems. That generally has a warranty of 10 years, so expect it to break after 15, to be replaced at a cost of a few thousand dollars. Or maybe repaired for less.

The kind of solar power popularly installed today does not use batteries. Batteries are generally only for remote installations that did not have grid power when the solar was first put up.

How To Select A Good Solar Panel/Cell?
What Are The Criterias To Be Considered?

Selecting a good solar panel/cell is a tedious task requiring a lot of considerations. Understanding solar panel and how it works will greatly help in answering the question.

Solar energy begins with the sun. Solar panels, also known as photovoltaics, are used to convert light from the sun, which is composed of particles of energy called "photons", into electricity that can be used to power elecrical loads. Light from the sun is a renewable energy resource which provides clean energy, produced by solar panels.

Solar panels can be used for a wide variety of applications including remote power systems for cabins, telecommunications equipment, remote sensing, and of course for the production of electricity by residential and commercial solar panel systems.

While technologies are constantly evolving toward higher efficiencies, the most effective cells for low cost electrical production are not necessarily those with the highest efficiency, but those with a balance between low-cost production and efficiency high enough to minimize area-related balance of systems cost. Those companies with large scale manufacturing technology for coating inexpensive substrates may, in fact, ultimately be the lowest cost net electricity producers, even with cell efficiencies that are lower than those of single-crystal technologies. Solar cells are manufactured primarily in Japan, Germany, USA, and China, though numerous other nations have or are acquiring significant solar cell production capacity.

Having said what has been said, it is worthwhile for you to visit the link and search the panels that suit your need.

What Car Would Be The Most Fuel Efficient?

Im not sure if your asking which mass produced cars are the most fuel efficient or in general what type of car is most fuel efficient.

Obviously, a car that goes not use fuel would be most fuel efficient. Some examples would be an electric car (a Tesla) that you plug in at home where you use solar power to generate the electricity. Another example would be a hydrogen buring car, or hydrogen fuel cell car where you produce the hydrogen from water with solar or wind power.

As far as what is out there on the market right now, the Tesla, but its about $100,000.
The prius which is very affordable, plus you get tax rebates. You can also get some solar panels for the top of the car and a aftermarket modification that allows you to plug it into any receptical. Doing all of this can basically allow you to not have to buy fuel unless you are going on a very long trip (over 200 miles) where you would be getting about 125 miles per gallon.

What Size Solar Panel Do I Need?
I Am Going Camping For 9 Days At Eaa Airventure On The Field With No Power... I Want To Bring Some With Me. I Have Two 12V 1000 Cranking Amp Gel Batteries. I Want To Supply A 12V Outlet For Charging My Phone And Running My Laptop. I Also Want To Run An Ac/Dc Converter So I Can Run A Fan Or A Light In My Tent. I Would Like To Put A Charging Meter And A Meter To Tell Me How Much Power Is Left. I Don'T Plan On Running The Batteries Down To Dead. ...Question Is, What Size Solar Panel Do I Need To Charge The Batteries So They Are Ready To Go The Next Night? Thanks For Your Help!

Since most of the little ones give only 15 to 30 W of power this is not much. Considering you laptop will need about 90 Watts per hour.

And even if you get the 30 W panels which are fairly large and expensive, you generally only get 30 W out in direct sunlight at the right angle.

Thus you will need several of them just to power your laptop for the time the sun is out. Then you need additional ones to charge it for the night.

It would be better and cheaper by far to get a small electric generator that uses gas to charge your battery and use your products.
