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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. 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, many homeowners find that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically decrease or perhaps remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Make an excellent return on your investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power prices have actually gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with changing capital, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Boost your house value

Multiple research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need 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 component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price variations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a terrific way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common domestic solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run properly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Saving 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 money down.

Lots of house owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 business are notorious for their varying and unreliable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic math, we can calculate how much electricity will be created, and most importantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Since Solar Panels Are Becoming Popular. Where Can I Get The Training To Install, Maintain, And Repair Them?
I Am A Journeyman Electrician But No One Here Seems To Know About This.

If you're already a journeyman, I think you're 90% there. There is an expanded federal tax credit for photovoltaic panels coming on line next year, so solar installation companies may be getting a boost in business, at least in areas where the people are not hurting from the economy. And when the economy improves, it only gets better.

Photovoltaic panels rarely need maintenance or repair. If something goes wrong, it's likely to be simple and catastrophic, such as lightning hit it, or a bullet, or a falling tree.

As for installation, a number of panels are wired in series (it's all plug and play, with the new MC-3 connectors), and then the wires go into a junction box. From there, it's all stuff you already know, wire gauge appropriate for the current, insulation rating for the temperature, conduit fill factors, compliance with the NEC, etc., all the way down to the inverter and service panel. It's not that different from adding a new circuit to somebody's house.

Your best move may be to work for a solar installation company for a while. They can use your skills with the hookup, and you can learn how they architect a system based on the customer's energy use, and how they do the physical installation.

I Have A Question About Solar Panels?
So During The Day, Electricity Is On, Everything Is On And Working Fine. But At Night Where There Is No Sunlight Does All The Electricity Shut Down For The Night? So There Is No Light On For Me During The Night, Or I Can'T Watch Tv At Night? Is It Also True That With Solar Panels, Your Bills Are Less Expensive. Can Someone Please Tell Me These Things

>But at night where there is no sunlight does all the electricity shut down for the night?

Electrical production shuts down, but most solar electric systems have some way of storing power.

There are two main types of storage:

1. Grid tie. Basically this uses the power grid as a "virtual" battery. You produce extra power during sunlight hours to "sell" to the grid (other people use it) and you buy power from the grid when the sun doesn't shine.

This is usually the most economical system, but whether you save money depends on a lot of things like: cost of installation, location, government subsidies & how much you get for the electricity you sell & buy.

In other words, the details matter. Mostly location, which determines how much sunlight you get, electric rates, and subsidies.

2. Batteries. Usually a large bank of deep cycle lead acid batteries. Usually only used in "off-grid" systems and the cost of electricity is usually not competitive with grid electricity.

Were Solar Panels Made By Copying How Plants Collect Sunlight?
In Nature, Green Leaves Collect Light And Produce Energy. Is This What They Copied To Make Solar Panels? If Not How Hard Would It Be To Make Artificial Leaves That Would Power Our Homes?

Solar panels were not made to copy leaves. Leaves have molecules that become excited when they are hit by light. They store this energy in ADP molecules and ATP molecules. This works great for biological processes, but until we learn how to use Adenosine Di/Triphosphate to transport energy, we are better off sticking with our solar panels. They produce electricity, which we know how to use.
