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 property owner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of home owners find that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, property electricity prices have actually increased by approximately three percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home value

Several research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent 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 decrease that number. A common domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are necessary elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer buying choices, producing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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 notorious for their changing and undependable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate just how much electrical power will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

And Can It Be Done Without Ruining The Outside Appearance Of Your House? All The Solar Homes I See Are Covered With Funky Panels, And It Looks Like A Mess. How Much $$ Would Someone Need To Dish Out For A Transformation Like That?

I have seen this done on HGTV channel when people remodel their homes...
It is quite expensive to be sure...
Each home is different because of size...
They run plumbing all through the walls to pump water through to warm the floors and keep plumbing all insulated...
The lighting comes from the sun through special glass panes that filter warmth into the house...
It keeps everything warm in winter...
As for summer, the same windows are covered to keep the house cool and the plumbing is controlled by electronics to keep it cool...
I have seen the builders put in these big boxes that convert all your wires and plumbing to meet the needs of the house...
They have all kinds of buttons on them for setting special heat and cooling in different rooms...
It looks like you need a degree in electronics to learn to use them...
I am sure though I could never afford them and they would not work in my house because I have a manufactured home that does not have thick walls or strong exterior...

How Does Solar Energy For Buisnessess Work?
I Just Need To Know The Basics Of How Solar Energy For Buisnesess Works. Thanks

Solar for businesses works pretty much the same way as solar for private residences.

Typically, panels are put on the roof for either hot water or electricity. In both cases, the solar generally only supplies a fraction of what the business needs, because businesses use a lot of energy.

Retail stores have flat roofs, which is good for the cost of the building, but not as good for solar. Also, stores have more junk sticking up from the roof that could shade the panels.

A business is not eligible for the same federal tax credit that a home can get, but can deduct the panels as a capital expense (usually).

Most businesses want to see a big return on any money they invest, and solar doesn't do that today. A few boutique stores like Whole Foods do it, and so do a few major corporations that want to make a statement, like Google.

Look up "solar energy" on Wikipedia for more.

Ups Or Inverter For Using With Solar Energy?
Provided Ups Can Charge With Solar. What Is The Advantage/Disadv? Which Is Good Value For Money? I Want To Use As Permanent Solution For Home Electronic, Computers Etc

A UPS would have a rectifier you do not need . . . unless maybe you have some kind of solar-thermal system with a generator.

I think you would want an inverter, with a battery and maybe some kind of charge controller. It might depend on the size of your system.

I Have A Few Physics Questions For A Test?!?
I'Ve Got A Few Physics Questions And Will Need To Know Them For A Test Soon. 1) What Is A Solar Flare? (Please Don'T Say Its A Move Used In Dragonball Z Because I Already Know That!) 2) What Does The National Grid Do? 3) Name A Reason Why We Can See Stars At The Night (Other Than The Fact That They'Re Big) 4) How Do Solar Flares Affect Satellite Signals? 5) What Are Comets Made Of? Thanks In Advance Guys! :-]

1) What is a solar flare?

wikipedia:
A solar flare is a violent explosion in a star's (like the Sun's) atmosphere releasing as much energy as 6 × 1025 Joules. Solar flares affect all layers of the solar atmosphere (photosphere, corona, and chromosphere), heating plasma to tens of million Kelvin and accelerating electrons, protons and heavier ions to near the speed of light. They produce radiation across the electromagnetic spectrum at all wavelengths, from radio waves to gamma rays. Most flares occur in active regions around sunspots, where intense magnetic fields penetrate the photosphere to link the corona to the solar interior. Flares are powered by the sudden (timescales of minutes to tens of minutes) release of magnetic energy stored in the corona.
X-rays and UV radiation emitted by solar flares can affect Earth's ionosphere and disrupt long-range radio communications. Direct radio emission at decimetric wavelengths may disturb operation of radars and other devices operating at these frequencies.
Solar flares were first observed on the Sun by Richard Christopher Carrington and independently by Richard Hodgson in 1859 as localized visible brightenings of small areas within a sunspot group. Stellar flares have also been observed on a variety of other stars.
The frequency of occurrence of solar flares varies, from several per day when the Sun is particularly "active" to less than one each week when the Sun is "quiet". Large flares are less frequent than smaller ones. Solar activity varies with an 11-year cycle (the solar cycle). At the peak of the cycle there are typically more sunspots on the Sun, and hence more solar flares.

2) What does the national grid do?

distributes electric power throughout the country

3) Name a reason why we can see stars at the night (Other than the fact that they're big)

They are big and very bright.

4) How do solar flares affect satellite signals?

disrupt them

5) What are comets made of?

wikipedia
Comet nuclei are known to range from about 100 meters to 40+ kilometers across and are composed of rock, dust, water ice, and frozen gases such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane and ammonia. They are often popularly described as "dirty snowballs", though recent observations have revealed dry dusty or rocky surfaces, suggesting that the ices are hidden beneath the crust (see Debate over comet composition). Comets also contain a variety of organic compounds; in addition to the gases already mentioned, these may include methanol, hydrogen cyanide, formaldehyde, ethanol and ethane, and perhaps more complex molecules such as long-chain hydrocarbons and amino acids. Comet nuclei are irregularly shaped: they have insufficient mass (and hence gravity) to become spherical.

Surprisingly, cometary nuclei are among the darkest objects known to exist in the solar system. The Giotto probe found that Comet Halley's nucleus reflects approximately 4% of the light that falls on it, and Deep Space 1 discovered that Comet Borrelly's surface reflects only 2.4% to 3% of the light that falls on it; by comparison, asphalt reflects 7% of the light that falls on it. It is thought that complex organic compounds are the dark surface material. Solar heating drives off volatile compounds leaving behind heavy long-chain organics that tend to be very dark, like tar or crude oil. The very darkness of cometary surfaces allows them to absorb the heat necessary to drive their outgassing.
