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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many residents discover that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably decrease or even remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Make an excellent return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy costs savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power costs have gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your house value

Multiple research studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to minimize 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 photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are necessary components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer getting choices, developing goodwill and improving service outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many house owners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 changing and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate just how much electricity will be created, and most significantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).


What are the various payment options?

We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

What happens when the contract for my lease is finished?

We provide our customers with a few different options for when their lease contract is up. Customers can upgrade their equipment to the newest solar technology available, extend the agreement, or have the panels removed at no cost.

What is the warranty?

The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is It Physically Possible To Make Water Run Through A Hose Infinitely In A Loops Such As A Waterfall Without..?
A Pump Or Any Other Aid From Electronic Devices? Im Trying To Make It Loop For A Solar Heater Im Building

Hot water expands and therefore rises, displacing the cold water at the top of a closed loop. The cold water is then forced to the bottom of the loop, where it is heated, expands, and rises to the top. This is a self-circulating closed-loop system.

This would require that you locate the water-filled solar collectors at a LOWER altitude than the building being heated. This is why you'll see a solar house built at the top of a south-facing slope, so the solar-collection panels (or a greenhouse-collector) are located at the lowest elevation, down-slope from the house foundation.

How Prevent Battery To Back Flow Into The Solar Panel At Night?
Hello, I Have A Rather Simple Off-Grid System. 20 W Solar Panel Battery Battery Controller (This One Http://Www.Amazon.Com/Kintrex-Spc0601-Controller-Digital-Display/Dp/B001hwqznq/Ref=Sr_1_2?Ie=Utf8&Qid=1322240762&Sr=8-2) And Dc To Ac Inverter. My Question Is: Does The Charge Controller That I Use, Also Prevents The Battery To Empty At Night, As The Electricity Flows At Night Time From The Battery To The Solar Panel As I Know, When The Solar Is Unused, It Actually Consumes Electricity? Do I Need A &Quot;Back Flow&Quot; Preventer. If So I Am Looking For A Cheap One, Can You Recommend? Or Does This Feature Included In My &Quot;Battery Controller&Quot; Already? Many Thanks, Jonathan

First- check your literature for the panel. Many of them do come with what is called a "Back Diode" which prevents the panel from discharging the battery. Sometimes one is needed on the other side of the controller if the batteries seem to discharge too fast as well. More on details on this are here at this blog post:

Even though your controller uses a single MOSFET to regulate power, there is a fair amount of other electronics that bypass the MOSFET in that controller. IMHO- it is better to construct simple controllers with minimal additional "flash" to make them seem they do more than they do. If you want to see what a 7 amp controller looks like inside. It really does not matter who's name is on the label, most are made to the same specs using the same parts and often the same Chinese factory. This is not to dismiss the fact they will work, they will, but to say one is better than another- not really. Not when you get to the nuts and bolts of the unit.

If you want cheap insurance on the matter, go to the first link mentioned above to see how to wire it in, and make the back diode unit from 4- 1N5401 rectifiers wired in parallel to increase their current carrying ability and to reduce their effective series resistance in the circuit. That link also covers other options as well.

Solar Panels?
Can You Tell Me About Solar Panels For My House?(I Am 15 And Want To Convince My Parents To Get One To Put On Our Roof) What Are The Benefits? How Much Will It Cost? What About Setting It Up? What Kind Would Be Good? Is It Best To Put On The Roof Or Somewhere In Our Yard? And Are Their Different Kinds For On The Roof And In The Yard? Thnks.

It depends a lot on your particular location, the size of your roof/yard, your energy consumption. But for starters, here's a good directory of solar panels (both photovoltaic and solar thermal):

You might also want to read this article on why solar makes financial sense:

You can also look into getting tax credits for solar panels (check out the Energy Star website). Also, you might find a company like CitizenRE interesting. They basically rent out solar panels so that you and your family don't pay for all those big initial costs. (But they have their pros and cons too)

I Need Advice On How To Get Started Using Solar Power On My Home.?
I Know I Can Do A Fair Amount Of Googling And Hopefully Figure This Out For Myself, But I Don'T Even Know Where To Start. I Want Solar For 2 Reasons: 1. We Have Well Water, If Electricity Goes Out We Are Without Water. So Eventually I Want To Get Solar Panels On My Well House Regardless Of Cost. 2. To Save Money On My Power Bill. I Live In An Older Home And While We Have Made Massive Energy Saving Improvements (Insulation, Heatpump Instead Of Furnace, Low Flow Faucets, Energy Friendly Appliances &Amp; Light Bulbs, Line Dried Clothes) Its Still Super High. So My Questions: *Where Is The Best Place To Get Affordable High Quality Solar Panels? *How Does One Hook The Power Collected From The Panels To The House? *How Long Does It Usually Take For The Initial Investment To Pay Off In Energy Savings? We Live Along The 45 Parallel And The Ridge Line Of Our Roof Runs North And South (I Am Assuming Those Details Affect The Power Created By Solar Cells) *Finally, That Make Your Own Solar Panels, Is That Legit? My Hubby Says You Can Build The Panel But Have To Buy The Cells And They Are Expensive. Thanks So Much For You Thoughtful Responses.

Hey Knee, where to begin. First, if you just want to have access to the well pump during power outages, a portable generator can accomplish that much cheaper than solar panels and inverters can. If you've made all the improvements to your home and your bill is still "super high," something must be missing. Trying to overpower any shortcomings in your energy saving operation with solar power will just cost you more money.

We live in a home that is powered by the wind and sun now. We still have the grid connected, so at this point, we are using the grid power for our backup source. Prior to installing all the renewable equipment, we did the same thing, replacing appliances, lighting, and so on. Our monthly electric bill was only about $30 USD. It still took over $8000 USD to purchase the panels, turbine, tower and other equipment to recover that $30. If you're trying to save money, you would probably be better off just investing the $8000 in long term bonds and using the interest to pay your electric bill. The reason we did all the extra work was two fold. First, growing your own electrons is a rewarding hobby. Some people grow tomatoes even though it is cheaper to buy them at the store. They have to learn about bugs, soil PH, watering, weeding, and so on, yet there they are each spring in the garden. For us, it's about not being part of the problem. When I watch television, I don't use power from the coal station down the road, adding more CO2 and soot to the air, or mercury to the lake. Second, our home has not been without power for even a minute the last 11 years now, hard to put a price on that. What you want is more reliable power, for less money. For that, I'd say take a number and get in line, everyone wants that too. If it were as easy as installing panels, everyone would be doing it.

Affordable panels can be purchased on ebay, or from dozens of suppliers in many countries. The going rate for good quality panels warrantied for 20+ years is around $1.30 per watt. Our home has 1.4 kilowatts of them, at todays price, maybe $2000 USD, just for the panels. Another $4000 for the turbine, batteries, inverter and charge controller and the system is complete, that does not include labor or repairs.

You don't have to install panels on your roof, ours are in the garden, doesn't matter which way your house faces, as long as you have sun someplace. You can make your own panels, you do have to buy the cells, no home based manufacturing exists today I am aware of. The best panels come from U.S. or European manufacturers, and Japan. Kyocera, BP, Sharp are some good names. Chinese panels seem to have the lowest price, shortest warranty and lightest models, you can draw your own conclusions there.

If you really want to learn more, start with a subscription to Home Power Magazine, then when your first issue arrives, check out the calendar section for an, "Energy Fair," in your area. We went to one in Wisconsin 14 years ago, here we are today. I would warn you against getting info from open forums like this, it always amazes me how many people are willing to impart their knowledge on this subject who have never laid a hand on a panel or inverter. As far as connecting it all to your home, wait until you learn how it all works first, that part is actually pretty easy. Take care Knee, Rudydoo

How To Calculate Electricity Generated By A Solar Panel?
Tell Me The Information I Will Need To Calculate And How To Calculate It?

To the first order, it's simple. Take the peak equivalent sun-hours per day, and multiply it by the panel's rating. The first figure you can get from a local installer, or from a map such as this , or from a software program. Note that the peak equivalent sun-hours per day is much less than the hours that sun shines on the panel. For my area, the sun may shine on the panel for 12 hours, but that's equivalent to 5 hours of peak sun.

The panel's rating you get from the back of the panel. Be wary of panels that do not have a "Standard Test Conditions" (STC) rating, as that means the manufacturer just gave their overly optimistic opinion of what the panel can produce.

Example: Northern California. Average peak sun-hours per day = 5. Panel rating, 200 watts. 5 hours x 200 watts = 1000 watt-hours = 1 kWh. That would be the average production per day.
