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 daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, 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 environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, many homeowners find that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize or even remove your electric bills

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a big part of your regular monthly expenditures. 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 decrease your energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

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

#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity rates have gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your residential or commercial property worth

Several studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for properties geared up 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 part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a terrific method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#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 results. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to run properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and improving organisation results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- 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.

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

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

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute how much electricity will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Financing

What are the various payment options?

Frequently Asked Questions

Would Hydroelectric Power Be A Good Energy Source For Chicago? Why Or Why Not ?
My Other Choices For An Energy Source For Chicago Are Wind Energy, Solar Energy, Biomass Energy, Fossil Fuels, Geothermal Energy, And Nuclear Power But I Have To Have Good Reasons On Why I Chose The Energy Source And It Was To Be Realistic As Well.

hydro electric power is a clean and safe power source. As I understand it, the problem is finding suitable large rivers and dams with a large enough water drop for generating the power.

How Can Solar Energy Be Converted To Electrical Energy?
I Am Thinking Of Storing The Solar Energy For Future Use At Home And Outdoors.Is It Necessary That The Energy We Derive From The Sun Thru Panels Be Put Into Use As Soon As We Get Or It Could Be Stored In Someplace For Future Use Like For Home Appliances And Gadgets .Instead Of Using Lpg Or Hydro Electricity Which Has No Guarantee Of Supply

Solar energy can be converted into Electrical Energy by using Photo-volatic cells/Solar panels. Till now solar energy is stored in batteries. But if u can generate enough heatfrom the solar energy u can store them using the property Latent Heat of Fusion.

What Are Some Inherencies On Solar Energy?
Hello, I Am In A Debate Class And I Need Some Inherencies On Solar Energy Please, Thanks

Sure:
Inherency-Current administration opposes R+D now
"Top energy official extols Colorado based federal lab" Nov 8 2007
Judith Kohler.
Fact: NREL has laid off 32 employees and suffered a $28 million shortfall (National Renewable Energy Lab) So currently understaffed and underfunded national labs for renewable energy research.

Inherency-tax credits for renewable energy have fallen prey to cost cutting related to the Iraq war
"Foster: Dems pushing for renewable energy," March 29, 2008 UPI
There is an effort underway to extend and renew tax cuts supporting the production and use of renewable energy. The tax cuts for renewable energy have little chance of passing due to the costs of the Iraq war. (how ironic is that, LOL)

These two inherencies prove that the US is not currently doing enough to support research and development of renewable energy such as solar, and also not extending tax credits to promote development and purchase of renewable energy such as solar.

Also, look out your window. How many solar panels do you see? There is an inherency right there.

What Is Solar Energy And What Does It Have To Do With?

Solar energy is energy that comes from the Sun. It is a good energy source to pursue because it is renewable. No matter how much we use, it doesn't reduce the amount of energy available.

How Long Before We Run Out Of Oil And Natural Gas?

First, we will never extract all the oil and natural gas that that has currently been discovered. About 85% of the original gas in place can be recovered from a gas reservoir leaving about 15% residual gas. A reasonable recovery factor for an oil reservoir is about 30%. That means that 70% of the original oil in place remains in the reservoir at the end of primary recovery. Secondary recovery techniques such as waterflooding the reservoir after primary depletion will produce additional oil, but not all of what remains. Therefore, even known fields won’t be entirely depleted.

Second, even in mature, heavily explored petroleum basins, we are unlikely to discover all of the hydrocarbon reservoirs that exist. Some areas tend to have reservoirs that are too small or too complicated to favor commercial success from exploratory drilling. Exploration economics will have to improve significantly before much effort can be justified in these areas.

Also there are geographic areas that are politically sensitive, resulting in restricted exploration. In the USA, these include areas off the east & west coasts, offshore Florida, the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the 1002 multi-use area of ANWR. It will require significant shortages and high petroleum prices to influence the public and elected politicians to open these areas to exploration and production.

To estimate how much producible hydrocarbon reserves exist, you need to know two things. First you need to be able to estimate the probability distribution of undiscovered fields remaining. Second, you need to be able to estimate the value of the produced products and the finding and extraction costs. These are just estimates, they will never be known with certainty. There is considerable variation is the parameters that influence the estimation of commercial reserve calculations. As the world economies heat up, China and India for example, began to compete with the United States and Europe for petroleum products. The increase in demand drives up prices. This becomes an incentive for increased exploration because marginal prospects will now exceed economic thresholds and some of them will subsequently be drilled. However, there is a dampening impact the quickly begins to follow the increase in drilling. Costs for drilling rigs, geophysical crews acquiring seismic and potential field data, land lease royalties and bonuses all begin to increase rapidly. This begins to make marginally commercial prospects less attractive again. Thus, estimating commercial reserves is like shooting at a moving target.

Finally, there is increasing competition from other energy sources. Wind and solar energy sources will undoubtedly increase their market share in the future. It is interesting that nuclear energy is also getting some press because it produces no CO2 waste products. These and other competitors to petroleum will replace petroleum consumption as they become effective cost competitors in the future. This will happen long before all extractable hydrocarbons have been produced.
