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 homeowner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, many property owners find that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce or even remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs cost savings, the average American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past ten years, residential electrical power rates have actually gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a business or house owner with changing money circulation, going solar also assists you much better forecast and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your home value

Several research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively 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 informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up 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 crucial component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, 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 country. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that opt to run properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing service results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners pick to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy companies are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Do They Make Solar Panels Like This?
I'M Looking For A Solar Panel That Has Something You Can Plug Thigs Into, I Don'T Know Let'S Say Grow Lights. I Want Something That These Lights Can Plug Directly Into And I Can'T Find Any Online. If There Is Any I Would Like To Know Of The Cheapest And Best Quality, I Know That'S An Oxymoron But Still. The Lights Are 600 Watts So I Need Something Somewhat Strong. Thanks

Solar panels only put out electricity when they are in the sunlight. If you need electricity after peak solar hours, you will need a battery storage system or a connection to the grid.

You can run a DC device directly off of solar panels if the device uses the same voltage and amperage that the panel puts out. Your 600W lights use a ballast that takes AC current and will not work with the typical panel. Also, a 600W light will take at least 3 high output/high efficiency panels to run, and you will need more than that if you want to store energy in batteries. You are talking at least 60 sq. ft. of solar on your roof.

Aside from the power you need, you are also asking for an AC current, while most solar panels put out a DC current. This is what inverters are for. There are some newer panels that output AC, but you are still talking about a lot of PV to power your needs.

How Do Eco-Friendly Products Help The Environment?

There is a green movement in the country, it could be a case of too little too late, but at the least we are moving towards a nation that has a conscious about destroying the environment. The green movement has caught on with many groups and has become fashionable in some industries. The home building or home improvement industry is no exception. Many construction companies, home improvement centers and building products advertise some level of commitment towards "green" or environmentally friendly construction. Are these companies actually fulfilling their promises? That is a discussion for another day What we want to focus on is how a wood kitchen cabinet can help you become environmentally friendly. Everyone should want to reduce their "carbon footprint". This carbon footprint is roughly defined as the amount of CO2 that you, as a living person, put into the environment each day. It can be everyday activities like driving a car, running an air conditioner, or building a house. Almost everything you do has a connection to the environment, be it direct or incidental. Taking products and using them is basically us being consumers and from this consumption we are taking from nature. This then creates pressure on the environment. So again, if I am building a house or renovating my kitchen, how do wood kitchen cabinets help lower my carbon footprint? The first thing is to define a "wood kitchen cabinet". Unless you're living in the nineteenth century, you're probably not going to see a solid wood cabinet. It is not economical and it just does not make sense in the building industry.

What you are getting in wood kitchen cabinets is one of two things. Solid wood faced cabinets with paneled wood sides (these are the good cabinets) or the lesser quality cabinet that is a wood front and a particle board side (places like Home Depot and Lowe's sell these inferior cabinets). Now that you have a definition of what really is a wood kitchen cabinet, you can then ask where I find these solid wood cabinets with paneled sides. The very best, easiest, and least expensive method to buying these cabinets is actually online. Yes, the internet cabinet websites easily beat any retail prices. (Mostly because of less over head). Finally, how am I saving the environment, if I am buying wood kitchen cabinets? The trick to saving money and the environment is the RTA kitchen cabinet. It is not a brand name, but rather a style of cabinet. RTA stands for "ready to assemble". These cabinets are about thirty to forty percent less than an assembled cabinet and they are actually helping to cut down carbon emissions and save lumber. These all wood RTA kitchen cabinets use the entire tree, thus cutting waste. Furthermore, these cabinets save space on shipping. They are unassembled so they take up to fifty percent less space. This "space savings" contributes to less shipping; this produces less carbon dioxide. You may say that does not seem like much, but when you add up the number of shipments, this becomes a huge amount of carbon dioxide that is kept out of the atmosphere. So in the end, every little bit helps. Yes buying wood kitchen cabinets, especially RTA kitchen cabinets will help the environment. Now all we have to do is get everyone to do their own small part.

Shouldn'T 0Bama Increase Our Tax Benefits For Solar Panels So We Can Buy More Chinese Products?
China Is The World'S Biggest Producer Of Solar Panels

China is also the world leader in using solar panels. Most solar panels in the US are not from China. There are several companies here in the US that make solar panels, and many states do increase the tax rebate for buying local products.

Most flat plate water heating panels installed in the USA are made in the USA.

Wouldn't it be nice to get people to buy more sustainable energy products and increase manufacturing jobs in the US, while actually improving the air quality and reducing our dependence on foreign oil? Oh, and perhaps we could get the money by cutting the amount of taxpayer funds subsidizing the oil and coal industries?

Is Getting Solar Panels Worth It For Your Home?
Any Recommendations For Companies? Any Things To Look Out For?

Yes, solar panels are a great way to save on electricity costs for your home.

4 things I can tell you to look out for are:

Make sure you can fit enough solar panels on your house to make a decent saving. If you don't have the roof space then you can't put up enough panels and you might as well not bother. For a medium sized home, I would say that you should go no smaller than 2.2kW in solar panels. If you can fit more then go for it.

Make sure that the inverter that is used is big enough. It has to deal with the watts from the solar panels back to the power board to convert it as useable energy.

If you have a rebate system where you live then make sure you use it. Where I am we have carbon credits that the government will give you that you use to offset the cost of purchasing solar.

Don't fall for gimmicks where a company will promise you that you won't pay electricity every again. In order for that to happen you need to be putting more electricity back in the grid as you are currently using so you either need a huge amount of solar panels or you really need to cut back on what you are currently using.

Will The Same People That Are For Cap & Trade...?
Be The Very Ones That Will Yell Not In My Back Yard When It Comes To Windmills Or Solar Panels Being Put Up?

You made my day. ROTFLOL!!! That is so true, they will complain about one thing and then the other. "Oh those poor birds, and those bugs!!!" ha ha ha ha!! I love it. That was classic, so so classic.

But solar panels are not that bad, as an alternative to windmills.

And instead of this cap and trade B.S. why not make it a major tax write off to invest in solar panels for your business and home? That seems more progressive instead of forcing businesses to either flee or fail under this new tax. It is insane, 1,300 pages and no one has even read it. Now that is what I call an oxymoron, a bill about saving the environment that uses hundreds of trees to do so, and it won't even work.
