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 everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothing, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, many property owners discover that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically minimize or perhaps remove your electric bills

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#2 Make an excellent return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill savings, the average American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power rates have gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a service or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you much better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your house worth

Multiple studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly 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 homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included 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 nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common domestic solar panel system will remove three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer getting decisions, creating goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many house owners pick to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- 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 Investment

The energy business are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

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

Financing

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.

The Person Who Wins The Race Gets An A+, And I Really Need The Grade!!!! Can Anybody Help? Changing The Gear Ratio Is One Idea I Came Up With, But I'M Having A Hard Time Finding A Gear That Fits. Any Thoughts? Thanks ... Julie P.S. :: The Car Will Be Racing On A Slick Tile Surface Under A Set Of Constant Lights. The Setting Will Be Controlled.

My advice is to look into building your own fuel cell to boost your cars performance. These could definitely add a little more needed power to your car. Research it a little. Some require very little to get some extra power out of things.

Or you could always try and increase the solar cell's power output by adding a magnifying glass or two (a big magnifying sheet mounted a few inches above it might give you an extra little boost.)

How Is Solar Power Energy Created?

"Energy cannot be created or destroyed, only changed in form." I forgot who said that (maybe Newton). Einstein stated that the energy created equals the mass destroyed times the square of the velocity of light (E=mc^2). The sun "creates" energy by "destroying" mass (in this view mass is considered to be "frozen energy").

Getting Power From A Solar Panel Made Easy?
I Am Going To Be Putting A Solar Panel And I Need To Have It Run The Power To Plug Ins So I Can Plug In Some Lights And Fans. This Solar Panel Isnt Anywhere Near Any Electric Source Or House Around. So How Can I Hook The Solar Panel Up To Wires, And Then Run Them Down To A Battery Or Inverter Or Whatever I Need, To Eventually Hook To Power 4 Or 5 Plug Ins For The Lights And Fans? Please Show Me The Easiest Way Possible And If You Can Post Links To Diagrams That Would Be Great. Basically- I Need To Know How To Power Plug Ins From A Solar Panel. This Is All I Need To Know! Diagrams Please! Thank You!

By saying something like "plug-ins", it is obvious that you shouldn't be messing with electrical.

Solar Power Shingles?
Hello, I'M Doing Research On Solar Power Shingles, Not Panels, And I Am Having Trouble Finding Prices Of Shingles And Companies. I Know Uni-Solar Is Very Popular, But I Can'T Find The Price Of Their Products. I Would Also Like To Know Some Other Companies' Prices Of Shingles, You Know, For Comparison. Also, Please Give Any Sites With Info About Solar Shingles And Materials They Can Be Made Out Of. I Know They Can Be Made Out Of Silicon, But Is That Good? Will We Run Out Of Silicon If We Convert A Large Amount Of Energy Supply To Solar-Shingles? Any Info Is Welcome, Thanks! Greenday

I recently had a system installed and one of the companies I contacted quoted me shingles. I don't remember exact numbers, but they cost more than panels and were less efficient. I believe the reason given was the lack of airspace below them increased overheating and reduced production. I put a link to the company that offered the panels.

What Is Solar Energy? And How Solar Cells Work?
I Have A Project About Sloar Energy And I Couldn't Find Many Information About, So Could Any One Helps Me

The energy from the sun is about 1000W per square meter at the earth's surface. Much of this is in the visible light range of wavelengths.

Solar cells are a specialised form of semiconductor diode known as a photovoltaic cell. They generate about 0.5 volts DC under working conditions, and the current depends on how bright the sun is and the efficiency and area of the cell. Many cells are connected together to form a solar panel. There are usually 36 cells for a panel to charge 12V batteries.

The photons from the sunlight enter the semiconductor material and increase the energy within the atomic structure. This causes electrons to be released. They flow from the semiconductor round through the external circuit and back into the semiconductor, to fill the "holes" left by the electrons.

There is plenty of information, too much is more like the issue. Maybe you used the wrong keywords to search.
