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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many residents discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably lower or perhaps remove your electric bills

Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power expense savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power costs have actually increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Boost your home worth

Multiple studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic 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 accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate changes in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry 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 nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal residential solar panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to operate properly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer getting decisions, creating goodwill and improving organisation results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

As of 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 infamous for their varying and undependable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Any Facts About Solar Energy?
My Friend Is Very Interested In Knowing About Solar Energy. Mind Giving Him A Hand On Learning About It?

Well here is outline of a basic system solar cells collect energy from the sun and turn it into DC current (direct current) which runs to an inverter, this changes the DC current to AC current ( alternating current which runs into a charge controller, that is used to charge a battery bank and to regulate the amount of energy that goes in to the batteries to avoid damage, the batteries then power the items in your house. Very basic but that is a general idea of how it works.

What Are The Materials Used For Absorbing Solar Energy?

A really simple answer to your question is exploring a solar kit, which you can buy on ebay. That way you can really understand what the materials are and how they all go together to form the solar panel.

By the way, I think you can use several different substitutes within absorbing solar energy whether it is for solar panels or other ways.

I read the other day that a student form MIT has found a way to generate solar energy from something that might be applied to paint in the future. I cannot wait for that technology to come out. It is only a matter of time until it does.

Technically drying your clothes on a clothesline is absorbing solar energy. The materials are rather simple in that regard.

If A 15% Tax On Energy Is Good For The Environment, Would 25% Be Better?
Mother Earth Is In Trouble! The Only Way To Save Her Is To Raise Taxes! Is 15% Tax On Energy Enough, Or Would 25% Be Better? After All, This Is Your Planet We'Re Talking About Saving! Should We Be More Like California When It Comes To Environmental Issues?

California is broke because her taxes are to high and all manufacturing has been or is going to be banished from the once golden state. California will now become the earth state where everything is brown and dirty because there is no money to import water from other states to wash off the dirt and dust to keep things clean. AndI am old enough to remember how nice this state used to be under Reagan, Dukemajen and a couple of others long ago.

What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Solar, Wind, Hydro, And Geothermical Energy?
What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Solar, Wind, Hydro, And Geothermical Energy?

The advantages of solar, wind, hydro, and geothermal are that they are clean and renewable. Those energies are also ubiquitous meaning they are everywhere and widely available. The disadvantages is that they are expensive and have little output. At this point in time, we do not have the technology to harness these power sources to produce baseload generation. Fossil fuels are cheap and have dense output.

What Is A Residential Solar Electric System?

In recent times, residential solar energy has become more popular for use by home owners.

People are concerned about the environment and the effects man has on it as he continues to use fossil-fuels at an increasing rate each year. Now people are taking time to consider other options that will help save and protect the earth by doing their part in the best way they can. As part of these considerations, people are also looking at solar power cost. Installing solar power at home can be expensive.

What Is A Solar Energy Home?

Instead of a home's electric energy needs being supplied by the utility, a solar energy home is one which has all of it power needs supplied by residential solar energy mechanisms. When powering a home with solar energy, one must consider both the disadvantages of solar power and advantages of solar power that are associated with a solar home. Each of these need to be carefully and thoroughly considered in order to develop an informed viewpoint on the subject matter.
