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 unit, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing 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, numerous property owners find that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize or even remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big portion of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy prices have actually increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're a service or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your property worth

Several research studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties 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 a key part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price variations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the United States 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 United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of 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 corporate social responsibility are very important components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer getting decisions, producing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.

Many property owners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility business are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electricity will be created, and most significantly, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar/Wind Powered Energy Savings?
What Are The Percentages Of Power/Energy Saved By Using Solar Energy And Wind Energy Compared To What We Use On Average?

I may have misread your question, sorry if I did.

There is no energy savings by using an alternative source. Most of the alternative sources are in fact MORE expensive. People choose to pay more for solar, wind, and other alternative sources...a lot more in some cases.

As alternative energies become more efficient and cost effective they replace fossil fuels more and more, but there is still a cost to the production of the PV cells and wind turbines...lots of metal, and lots of composites including plastics, in relation to the power they produce.

Energy savings comes from conservation and increasing efficiency.

Right now, renewable energy accounts for about 7 percent of US energy consumption. Most of the 7 percent is Hydro-electric and wood burning.

I Have To Make A Working Model On Green Energy. What Should I Make?

You can make a solar-panel powered project.
If you want to be fancy build a house model (or use a doll house) and install a couple of LEDs around. Install a couple of solar-panels on roof and connect them to a battery. Connect the LEDs to switches and to the battery and there you have it, a tiny house powered entirely by solar-energy! Or simply do it with a lamp if you wanna keep it simple.

Is Geothermal Energy Eco-Friendly And Why?
Why Is Geothermal Energy A Better Alternative To Oil Considering The Environment?

Yes, but it's not usually 100% Eco-Friendly, unless you also have solar or wind-power.

There's a pumping system that sends liquid through underground pipes, then an electrically driven compressor and a heat exchanger concentrate the Earth's energy and release it inside the home at a higher temperature. Ductwork distributes the heat to different rooms via furnace with blower. The pump, compressor, heat exchanger, and furnace blower all use electricity.

Other than the electricity used there's no emissions (because nothings burned), no waste, no mining, no transportation of materials that might spill.

This electricity might be coming from a coal powered plant - thus not entirely green. But if it's coming from solar or wind, then it's 100% eco-friendly. But even if the elecricity is coming from a non-green source, the amount of electricity needed to run a geothermal system is minor - estimated at $300 to $400 per year for both heating and cooling.

Will Solar Energy Finally Be Respected As The Earths Most Powerful Resource?
Its Our Most Abundant Resource And It Creates Life Instead Of Destroying It. Big Oil And Big Coal Were At One Point Very Expensive And Then Lowered In Price When It Became Common And Popular. Yet The Pollution From Both Is At The Very Least Bad For Mankinds Lives. Pvc Cells Come From Silicon Which Is The 2Nd Most Prevalent Resource On Earth. The Technology Is Not New. Its Actually Over 40 Years Old. It Can Be Put Literally Anywhere As It Has Nothing To Do With Temperature. Sunlight Is Sunlight. Many Countries Where There Is Less Sun Do Not Need Solar Pvc Energy. Iceland Where It Is Dark 3 Months Out Of The Year Depend On Geothermal And Hydroelectric Energy To Power 100% Of The Country. Hydroelectric,Wind,Nuclear And Geothermal Energy Can Provide All The Energy The Usa Needs In The Evening Hours. A Solar Pvc System 3 Times The Size Of Rhode Island Can Power The Entire Usa During The Day. This Easily Fits In Empty Areas Of Utah,Arizona And Nevada. And There Is Room For More !!

You make an important point. The sun energy powers solar cells and drives the wind and waves.
A new solar power cell claimed an energy conversion efficiency of 42%, gasoline motors have a lower efficiency. Solar power cells can be placed on top of homes, deserts, carports, hangars, garages, etc. At the current price of oil they are already the most cost-effective -and the price of oil will continue to increase, thanks to our "friends and enemies."

MIT is developing a floating windmill which would allow thousands of huge windmills (each 5 MW) all over the oceans most too far to provide power with a cable.
To collect the energy they could use the electricity, and highly pure water, to make Hydrogen. The same ships that collect the hydrogen would bring the highly purified water.
These windmills are designed to survive storms but can be driven to other locations to avoid one or avoid bird routes.
Their total power capacity could, eventually, exceed that of oil and nuclear power combined.

I Have A Solar Energy Essay For Bio-Ecology.And I Don't Know How To Start?What Could I Do?
Im Having Trouble On My Essay. I Don't Know Anything About Solar Energy. We're Split Into Groups Of Four And My Topic About Solar Energy Is Solutions;Local,State,National And International. What Does That Mean? Im Lost?And My Biology Teacher He Intimidates Me,Im Too Scared To Ask For Help.Yikesss! :(

Each one in your group discusses possible solutions to the solar energy problem. One person take possible local solutions, another person takes possible state solutions, etc. Each person in your group should do their own research, and be prepared to present their material themselves. But then that's just the way I'd do it....
