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.

"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.

All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid.

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous ten years, residential electrical power rates have actually gone up by approximately three percent each year.

Lots of property owners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Where Do I Get Free Used Solar Panels?

well, logically thinking, i dont think anybody would give up their solar panels. people want to use them so they would not be for free. besides, i think they are kinda expensive. i dont really think there is anywhere you could get used, free solar panels. but there is always ebay...

How Do I Build My Own Solar Panels?

The web has enough resources as to how you're going to build your own solar panels or Do-It-Yourself solar panels. There are some companies that would provide you the kit and the instructions on how to build one at the cheapest price. But first you need to ask yourself if you can really do it or it will become a waste of money. Second seek for the opinion of others who have tried doing it on their own.

Why Solar Panels Are Being Installed On Light Poles?
I Pass About 3 Township Every Day For My Commute. I Have Seen Solar Panels Are Been Installed On The Street Light Poles In Every Town That I Pass. Some Of The Poles Do Not Have Any Light Bulbs On The Top - But Still The Panels Are Installed. I Wonder Why The Panels Are For - Of Course The Obvious Reason To Send The Light Energy From The Sun To The Grid. Is That It.

Next time you drive by, take a closer look. There should also be a square metal box about midway on the pole. This is where the battery is located for this stand alone system. By configuring the light in this way, all the suns energy is collected during the day by the solar panels. They in turn send it to the battery in the box which stores this energy and delivers it to the light at night when needed. The next day, the sun replenishes the discharged batterys and the cycle gos on and on. Free energy! I like it!

If you don't see any lights on the pole then that probably means that the pole and panels are generating power for another fixture located elsewhere ( perhaps in the shade?) . It is definitely powering something. Look closer next time maybe you will see a camera or a emergency phone attached to the pole.

Who Already Used Solar Panel For Supply Home Electricity?

Hey Lee, there are literally thousands of people and places using solar energy. In the United States alone, over 100,000 homes and businesses produce and use some level of solar power for their electric loads, and the number increases each day.

Our home has been powered by the wind and sun for 11 years now. We are still connected to he electric grid, but our average electric bill is about $6 per month. Solar power is still very small, amounting to less than 1% of our global energy mix, but at the rate we are building and installing panels and solar farms, that number will be 10 times that amount in just one generation. If you want to see a plan for the largest solar farm in the world, go to google and type in, "North Africa Solar Project." The Germans are primarily behind this, a plan to build a huge solar thermal electric farm in the Sahara Desert to run all of Europe. There are other projects too. Chances are there are people near you that have some level of solar power now, and you just are not aware of it. I'll list some other sources below for you. Take care Lee, Rudydoo
