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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothes, seeing 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 environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of residents find that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably lower or even remove your electric bills

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment

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

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power prices have actually gone up by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with changing money circulation, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your property value

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

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

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

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A typical property solar panel system will get rid of three to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are very important elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that choose to operate properly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of house owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider 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 energy companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate how much electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Upcoming Technologies In Solar Energy Conservation.?
Adivise Some Solar Technlogies For Buildings Like A Campus Dining Or A Commercial Building.

I know of one very exciting upcoming technology: Thin Film Photovoltaics

Regular, crystalline solar panels require silicon crystals. As a result, there is a limit to how cheaply they can be made. You can only cut manufacturing costs on regular solar panels by so much. And right now, even at full production, they aren't cost effective without government subsidies. But thin film panels don't require crystals. They are still expensive, because they are new and not yet at full production. But they hold a LOT of promise for bringing the price of solar PV down to being competitive with other traditional fuels.

Who Advocates For Wind Power To Be Used?
I Neeeed To Know Who Are Some Major People Or Orginazations Or Whatever That Encourage And Advocate Wind Energy Usage/ Wind Power???

It has its' place but is noisy and not overly efficient. I advocate less greed in the use of power. Here in england they are forcing us to be greener yet the big city companies leave thousands of watts of lighting burning day and night. We will never meet the requirements of the whole world at the levels we use power now so must reduce what we all use then provide as much of our power from the most reliable and least toxic sources.
Gas turbines are the best we have at the moment for efficiency vs pollution so we need to be generating gas from waste and using that as primary source where possible then supplementing with wind, wave, solar geothermal and any other technology we can find but not nuclear until the science can deal with the waste.

I will repeat my call for reduction of energy use as the only long term solution.

Alternative Fuel?
Why Dont We Use Hydrogen. I Know That It Costs Energy To Get They Hydrogen, But Then Shouldnt We Us Solar Energy To Get The Hydrogen?

Even if we used solar energy for electrolysis to break the atomic bonds in water molecules to get hydrogen, it would still be a waste.

It takes a ton of energy to break atomic bonds. More energy than you can get out by burning the hydrogen for fuel, so overall you have a net loss of energy. Even if that weren't a problem, there's no hydrogen infrastructure (transport and storage for hydrogen refueling). Building this infrastructure would cost billions of dollars.

Instead you could power a car directly with the solar energy by using it to charge up a battery and run an electric motor. This is a far more efficient process, and the infrastructure (power grid) is already in place. Electric cars are the way of the future.
