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 resident to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing 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, lots of residents find that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce and even eliminate your electrical costs

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous ten years, property electrical energy prices have actually increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar also assists you much better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Boost your residential or commercial property worth

Several research studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. 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 educated about solar, need for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price variations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots 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 essential components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that select to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer getting choices, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation results.

#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.

Numerous house owners select to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are notorious for their varying and undependable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can I Charge An Electric Car With Solar Power?
If It Takes 240 Volts To Charge An Electric Car And 8 Hrs As A Short Charge. How Large Would It Have To Be And Is It Possible To Design A Portable Solar Panel System To Store In The Car Trunk And Use It When Needed To Charge The Car When Traveling?

Please check your other question for a discussion of the size of the solar panel required to charge a vehicle here: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?... In my answer I mentioned that the charge required depends upon the size of the battery, the charging time required and the amount of usage anticipated. I gave some examples of what would be required for the Nissan Leaf. (a dashboard trickle charger, a 34sq meter daily charger or a 66 panel 20KW power supply for constant usage)

Solar panels stored in a trunk might only work if you anticipate traveling at night and then charging the car during the day. Do you then intend to limit your range of travel to the battery capacity or do you feel the need to travel further?

Solar panels that could fit into a trunk would have to be flexible panels. The present efficiency of these panels is about 1/2 that of the rigid counterparts which would require a doubling of the size already mentioned. Therefore approximately 68 sq meters or more than 730 sq ft of flexible solar panels would have to be stuffed into the trunk of a nissan leaf to be able to top off the battery in a day.

A genset trailer may be a better alternative while traveling. http://www.evnut.com/rav_longranger.htm This particular trailer was made by AC propulsion which they advertise here: http://www.madkatz.com/acpropulsion/long...

Solar Panels On The House?
I Want To Know How Many Solar Panels To Use To Power My Ac And Water Heater

you cant use solar panels to power your house,
it would take more than you can afford,and space to mount them
and all the equip required to hook it up.
what they don,t tell you is
you need a Battery bank [24 to 48 batteries], deep cycle
a inverter
,[one that will convert 12 volts to 110, at the wattage you need ]
a transfer switch, rated at 100 amps
wiring,
a 45 watt panel is around $300

Can I Connect An Ac Motor To The Solar Board Directly?
There Were No Dealer Of Solar Panel Here, So I Decided To Buy The Solar Board Which Will Arrive By Next Week. How Can I Make The Ac Motor Work If I Can'T Connect The Solar Board To The Ac Motor Directly?

I would pick up some books on solar panels make sure you get one that has information with basic electronic information. Solar panels make a dc voltage in most cases unless it has some type of inverter built in this would be rare. Depending on the size most are low wattage. I would guess it doesn't have the power to run the ac motor even if you could.

If you could you would need a voltage regulator and a inverter to turn the dc to ac. You would need some type of battery to use as a capacitor.

Your best bet would be to charge a battery system then buy a inverter to run off the battery and a battery charger with built in regulator they're cheap check ebay.. You could put the motor on a timer to give the panel time to charge the battery before running. This is what i would do if i wanted to say pump water for cattle on a low budget.

People Who Are Environmentalist, What Is Better To Use Solar, Biomass, Or Wind Energy If All The Oil Ran Out?
If All The Oil In The World Ran Out And We Needed A Resource To Equal Oil, Which One Would An Environmentalist Choose. Of Course They Are Trying To Help And Protect The Earth. Which One Of These Would Be Chossen By An Environmentalist? Please Answer My Question. Thank You!

The sun, for all practical purposes, is an endless source of energy but cold climates, cold seasons and cloudy weather impact our ability to access it. We need to find a combination of energy sources and consistently rely on natural sources, such as wind and even controversial hydroelectric to meet our planet's needs.

We also need to re-engineer our products that require energy. We can design far more efficiently and still be able to cool and heat our homes, schools and businesses. The Green Star program is just scratching the surface when it comes to energy efficient appliances, etc.

I rate biomass third because it creates pollution while solar and wind do not.
