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 daily life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, many homeowners discover that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce or even remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#2 Make a terrific return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy rates have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your home value

Multiple studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes 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 component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total 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 terrific way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate properly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer buying choices, developing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

How To Build A Model Of A Passive Solar Heating House?
For Science Class Ww Have To Build A Passive Solar Heating Model House And It Must Also Have Good Insulation. I Dont Understand How U Can Make The House Run On Solar Energy. My Science Teacher Is Givin 20 Bucks To The Best Model. I Can Use Any Materials, Besides Things Like Solar Panels Or Course. How Should I Start? Ill Work On The Scaling Later...

One thing you can do is mass thermal heating. That would be having a southern exposure to the sun with a lot of windows. You would tile the floor and a solid wall like stone or block for the sun to warm.

How Is Solar Energy Created?
Science

The answers reflect the fact that the question is rather broad.
The prime source of solar energy is the fusion reaction in the sun.
If by "created" you mean converted to to a more usable form:
There are two main methods that people use to convert solar radiation to other forms of energy. One is the photovoltaic effect which is used to generate electricity directly. The other is the thermal method detailed by Kathryn L, which in its simplest form is residential solar heating panels (or black-painted barrels, even), but also can use more complex apparatus such as focusing sunlight to a concentrated beam to boil a liquid, producing mechanical power which may be used to generate electric power.
Additionally there are numerous methods nature uses, including conversion via heat to wind and hydropower, and from wind to waves, etc.; and conversion via photosynthesis to chemical energy. (Note waves are distinct from tides, which do not derive from solar radiation.)

Suggestions For A Dyi Solar Home Heat?
Would Like To Be Able To Use Solar Power To Help Heat Our House. Any Suggestions On How To Do This? Thanks

There are many books on the subject.
There is google search and youtube.

By solar power do you mean electrical power? That is not an efficient way to heat because heat always requires a lot of juice. Look into passive solar. There is a lot to that subject. Such as planting deciduous trees on the South and West side. In summer leaves block the sun from heating up your exterior walls, in winter the leaves fall off, allowing the sun to warm them.

There are many ways of using the earth to regulate the temperature because 6' down it is always a constant 54 degrees. People run a pipe underground, use solar panels to charge batteries to run a fan to pump air through the pipes and into the house.

You can line up black-painted water barrels to soak up the sun and run that warm water through radiators inside the house.

Lots of things you can do.

How Should Individuals Promote Solar Energy?
I Would Like To Run All The Power In My House With Solar Energy. How Would I Go About Doing That?

First, be prepared to spend more money for the solar system than you will recover in reduced utility bills. My combined gas and electric bill averaged about $1,400 a year. I had a 6kw photovoltaic system put in. After rebates it cost me about $40,000. I now have an annual utility bill of $170. So I am recovering my investment at about $1,230 per year. My homeowners insurance went up too, so the savings is several hundred dollars less. If I had invested the $40,000 at 5% interest, it would bring back $2,000 per year!

I do hope to recover a bit more when I sell the house, but will never know how much it added to the selling price.

Secondly, I hope you can install a system. It is of tremendous benefit to the environment.

Before you spend any money on equipment or installation, learn all you can. See if any of the solar distributors in your area hold classes or seminars on the subject. Also your educational institutions. Work the internet. Keep records of what you learn. Talk to folks who have solar systems.

One thing most people don't consider is the roof. I had mine installed over the garage and an overhang. I didn't want a bunch of penetrations of the roof over the attic. A leak over the garage is a nuisance. Over the attic it is a nightmare. Sure enough I have had one small leak. Also if the existing roof will be in need of replacement soon, it might be bes to wait and do both at once. Removal of the solar system and putting it back will add considerably to the roofing cost.
