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

Thanks to considerable electrical power costs savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have gone up by an average of three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with changing money flow, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and manage your expenditures.

Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate changes in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry 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 growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a fantastic way 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 residential solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that pick to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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 business are infamous for their varying and undependable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine how much electrical energy will be generated, and most significantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

When Solar Panels Is Generating Energy, Where The Excess Energy Go When The Input Power More Than Need? And?

Depends on what type of solar power system you are using. If you are using a grid tied system, then any extra electricity you do not use will be sent back to the grid, and the local electrical company will purchase it from you.

But, if you are using a off grid system, then you will need deep cell battery storage for any extra power you create. Plus, you will need the battery system to use at night when the solar panels are not able to collect power.

The Laws Of Physics State That Energy Cannot Be Converted Or Destroyed. So Where Does Wind Come From?
This Is Confusing Me, If It Cannot Be Created Or Destroyed, Then How/Where Does Wind Come From? Also Is There Infinite Wind?

NO! The law states that energy cannot be CREATED nor DESTROYED but can be converted. This is the LAW OF CONSERVATION OF ENERGY.

Then, where does wind come from?
First, all of energy in our planet earth came from the sun, the solar energy. This solar energy heated the earth making different temperatures in different parts of the earth. Some parts has cold and some has warm. Air travel from warm area to cold area. The motion or movement of air is the wind.

Also, there is this CORIOLIS EFFECT, which is caused by the rotation of the earth and the inertia of the mass experiencing the effect. This effect also create wind.

Hope that answers your curiosity.

Which Is Better Hydro Power Energy ,Or Solar Power Energy?
I'M Doing A Science Fair Project And I Need Some Help. Which Is Better Hydro Powerr Or Solar Power. Where I Live, There Are Streams Running In The Backyard Off Everyones House. So Hydro Power Is More Usful Here. What Do Y'All Think?

hydropower is proven and reliable technology and currently the most dominant source of renewable energy in United States while solar power is the fastest growing industry in the country ans also the most abundant renewable energy source.
any way here's more info:

Should Solar Energy Use Be Increased?

Yes, California is trying to do just that. A few years ago we passed a law that requires energy companies and other manufacturing to begin reporting their emissions no later than this year and then begin working on reducing their emissions. The Goal is for CA as a state to reduce emissions to 1990 levels by I think 2012.

A couple of ways we are working to achive this goal is not allowing utility companies to buy "dirty energy" from nearby states, the entire energy portfolio is considered when calculating emissions, no matter where the energy was produced. That has forced the energy companies to turn to clean renewable energy.

We have a great renewable energy rebate system in CA, it varies depending on how an individual utility choses to use it. I am in the process of installing PV solar panels and I was able to get a $10K rebate from my local utility, I will also get a $2K federal tax credit, this has cut my out of pocket expense by half. My system should be paid for in less than 6 years, less in energy prices go up faster than expected.

The CA program is helping set the stage for other states, we have increased demand for panels which has increased production, which in turn lowers prices. This program has had a great economic impact for the state.

My solar panels help relieve the grid by supplying my home with electricity during peak demand. We currently suffer from rolling brown outs when we have heat waves, this could be a thing of the past. It is also cheaper to instal PV panels on homes and business than to build more electrcity plants.

Do The Solar Panels Store Energy?

Jay is telling you the correct answer about the PE cells. In addition, unless you have a "off grid " system most PE systems installed today don't use batteries to store energy rather they use an inverter to change the DC power to AC and synchronizes it with the utility power entering your home or business where it is consumed. Then when you generate more power than you use it is back fed into the power grid and you receive credits from the power company for that energy.

On the surface solar energy seems very simple but in reality it is very complex.
