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 daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, many home owners find that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly reduce and even remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a large portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create free 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 utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a great return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense savings, the typical American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity prices have actually increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your property value

Multiple studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic 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 attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost changes in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a fantastic way 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 property solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are necessary parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that opt to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer purchasing choices, 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 house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.

Many house owners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electricity-- 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 energy business are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Financing

What are the various payment options?

We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

Someone Knows About Solar Panel?
Okay So My Teacher Is Trying To Install A Solar Panel But We Have A Problem We Don'T Know Where To Ground It Because It Will Be A Movil House. Guys Do You Have Any Ideas?

A Mobile home will have its frame grounded when connected to a standard electrical 'plug-in',
if it was built to current Codes.
If you plan to use that panel as the entire electrical system you'll need to ground the frame.
Vehicle systems, (frame grounded), are 12 Volt for a reason.
It would be unwise to use a separately derived 120V. system in that mobile home
if that frame's not grounded.
(That first step out on to the ground could be a 'lulu'.)

What Is Solar Energy And How Is It Used?
*Help?

Solar power is one of the most well-known renewable energy sources – among geothermal, hydropower, wave power, wind power, biomass and biofuel power. Solar energy can be used for day lighting, cooking, heating water or other fluids, distillation, disinfection, making saline water potable and high temperature process heating.

There are a variety of ways people can benefit from solar energy – and the first time it was widely used was in the 1890-s in the United States if America where solar water heaters were invented. The system represented a panel installed on the roofs of the house that provided the household with some energy, but as large deposits of oil and gas were discovered in the west of the US, and they appeared to be low-cost and available, solar water heaters fell into oblivion to be rediscovered many years later. With the humankind using fossil fuels at the unforeseen speed solar water heaters were bound to make a comeback, especially in the countries with a lot of sun available all the year round.

Solar technologies used nowadays can be divided into active and passive depending on the way they capture and convert sunlight. Active solar techniques are PV panels and solar thermal collectors. Solar thermal collectors are panels that can, for example, heat your swimming pool – all because of the water pipes under the surface – when the panel becomes hot, so do the pipes, and warmed water can then be used to take a shower or swim – whatever it is used for, its production costs nothing. Passive solar techniques may include orienting a building to the sun, choosing materials with certain thermal mass and designing spaces inside the house that provide for optimal air circulation.

Solar energy in building is used by orientating the house relative to the sun, making it more compact, including patterns of selective shading and choosing building materials with certain thermal mass (heat capacity of a material). Every house should also be tailored to a certain climate it’s going to be located in.

Making Your Own Home Solar Power Panels?
I Am Confused Over This Issue. There Are Multiple Companies Selling Information On How To Make Them For Cheap, But I Do Not Know Which One Is The Best. I Hear Mixed Reviews Some Saying These Homemade Ones Are Just As Good As The Professional And Others Saying They Will Not Produce The Same Power Or Will Break Easy Or Not Be Legal To Hook To The Grid And Other Various Things. I Also Am Not Sure If You Really Can Make Them For Cheap Because I Think You Might Still Need To Buy Energy Converters Or Other Ect. So I Hope Someone Here Can Give Me An Objective Answers From Real Knowledge Or Experience And Give Reasons And Not Just Answers So That I Can See For Myself Thanks!!!

Well if you are doing a direct comparison (i.e. power output per panel), homemade solar panels are not as good as professional one's, the materials used to make the panels themselves absorb much more energy over its surface area in a professionally made panel.

Having said that you can get good benefits from home made solar panels, once you have made one you only need to make another to increase the amount of power produced. The home made solar panel is allot cheaper to purchase, you could make 20 home made panels for the price of one production panel.

as for converters / storage, the DIY guides around the place show you how to assemble / source them cheaply

There is a review on the following site http://solarpowerdiy.info/

My hubby is a DIY nut and he has assembled and implemented two of these now, we use the energy produced more to supplement our power usage, he estimates we will save around 40% (we are pretty conservative with our energy usage though)

When you ask, will they break easy, that probably is more dependant on the workmanship of the handyman putting it together.

hope that helps :)
