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

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically minimize or even remove your electric costs

Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, property electricity prices have actually increased by an average of three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a business or house owner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home or business value

Several research studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become 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 a key component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate variations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove 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 duty are necessary components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to run properly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and enhancing service results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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 business are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Financing

Do You Think Using Solar Panels Is A Good Thing Or Bad Thing, Why?
Im Doing An Assignment And I Need The General Publisc View Of Using Solar Panels To Supply Electricity Or Other Types Of Energy. So What Do You Think Of It, Do U Think Its A Good Thing Or A Bad Thing And Why.

I personally think it's a good thing, but I'll give you both points of view.

The Good
You will save energy AND money by converting your home to solar power. Sometimes your utility company will pay you for the excess electricity that you might generate, thus allowing you to make money while saving the planet! Plus, your property values will increase when you use alternative energy sources to power your home. The government also provides tax credits for certain solar applications.

And the other side:

The Bad
Even though you might think that you are helping the Earth, you should make sure that the panels were manufactured in an Eco-friendly manner. Unfortunately, there are some companies that are only in for the money and while the creating the panels, they generate more green-house gases. Wait! That is one of the reasons that we started using solar panels in the first place, to reduce green-house gases! The initial set up costs can be too expensive for most homeowners, up to $30,000 to professionally outfit a household. Sometimes you will even have to get a zoning variance, even though it would be an unwanted hassle.

Good luck with your assignment.

Why Are Solar Panels So Expensive?

Currently we have 2 choices in solar panels. Silicon, which is cheap & abundant but very expensive to process and purify, or thin film materials which require less processing (although still lots of purifying, but you don't need much of the stuff) and are pretty rare. Also, they often require expensive kit to process. On top of this, they need a transparent conductor on the front, which is also quite expensive (although only a small contribution to cost, it makes a difference when you want lots of solar!)

They're still quite expensive to make, but thin film cells are being produced at under 90 cents per kWp of panel (FirstSolar) with prices falling. However, big power stations pay over $3/Wp and in the UK a home system costs over $6/Wp. Home systems use more expensive silicon, but that still leaves a lot of cost unaccounted for.

The cost goes up because you need inverters to make AC electricity, and frames and wiring between the cells, then you need to install them and the combination of land, frames and installation work adds a lot to the cost. Companies are working on things like lighter substrates so that you need less framing and less work to install them, and on improving efficiency so you need less materials and less work too.



Thevulgarexistentialist: gold use is pretty rare outside labs, but we use other materials because copper is a fast diffuser in some crystals like CSS CdTe. Once it diffuses to the junction it acts as a 'deep trap state', which means you lose current through charge recombination. Cells with copper in can degrade very quickly so instead of 25+ yrs of generation at decent efficiency, you may drop to <50% efficiency in months or years.

I believe CIGS is commonly printed onto aluminium foil, CdTe commonly uses Molybdenum (although nowadays they're starting to use arsenic telluride with copper mixed in to give a stable CuTe crystal). I think silicon may use copper, or aluminium, or nickel. If you look at a silicon solar cell, the back contacts tend to be silver coloured, not gold.
