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).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Energy You Need From A Solar Panel To Charge A Battery That Has 3.75 Volts?
What Is The Difference Between The &Quot;Output&Quot; And &Quot;Input&Quot; In A Charger? What Do You Call The Power From The Charger That Goes To The Cellphone? Output Maybe? Or Input? How Much Power The Charger Produces To Charge A Cellphone? Please Answer My Questions... Thank You!

To make things simple.....
I would look at the regular cell phone charger (wall plug type), and it says on it, for example, Output 5V DC 0.7 A
This is what your solar cell should deliver at full sun blast.
The regulating circuit for charging your cell phone battery is inside the phone, so even if your battery is 3.7Volt, the charger delivers 5 Volt.

Electrolysis Of Seawater To Form Hydrogen From Solar Energy.What Are The Pros And Cons?
If Possible, Please Explain The Pros And Cons In Detail. If There Are Cost Problems, What Exactly Would Be The Cost? Or Just Write The Pros And Cons

Here's the biggest problem: Hydrogen storage.

There's a reason why hydrogen engines aren't around, because transporting the hydrogen just isn't safe or effective.

What Are The Benefits Of Using Solar Energy To Heat Water In My Home?

1. Solar energy is renewable. We never have to worry about running out of sunlight or using it all up. The sun is a consistent power source meaning it's always going to be there every day.

2. Solar energy is environmentally friendly. Compared to fossil fuels which release greenhouses gases, carcinogens and carbon dioxide, solar cells don't release anything into the air.

3. Solar panels are extremely reliable. There are no moving parts so you don't have to worry about replacing anything. In fact, most people generate electricity for 1000s of hours with little or no maintenance.

4. Solar cells make no noise while collecting energy. There are no other renewable energy sources that are completely silent.

Can 1 Solar Panel Of 100 Watt Charge 2 Or More Batteries At One Time.?
I Am Trying To Design Back Up Power System Of 1000 Watt But I Am Confused, Do I Need A Solar Inverter (Charger) Or I Can Use A Regular 230 Volt Inverter( Charger) While I Can Use A Charge Controller With Solar Panel .

It all depends on your batteries.
If your solar panel provides a 12-13 volt charge with a 8.3 amp current (to dictate a 100 watt output) you should be able to directly connect this to your two 12 volt batteries (connected in parallel I hope!). You can then just get an inverter to run domestic appliances off the batteries, no other charging devices needed. Follow the maintainace instructions of your batteries though, using a decent 3 charger on them every other month and checking the electrolyte levels twice a year may double their lifespan. Never let them discharge below 40% if you can help it.

How long will you want a 1000watt draw from the backup system? If you're using two 100 amp hour batteries a drain from full to 40% of charge would only take about 1 and a half hours. If you need longer you'll need more batteries but beware, add too many and the resistance from the battery bank will prevent the solar panel from charging them.

update: Sounds like a reasonable use, you should be able to get away with a cheap modified square wave inverter plus a car battery charger which will keep your costs down. I'd reccomend phoning up the manufacturer of the solar panels to discuss their connection on your system but as far as I am aware you can connect them with no problems directly to the batteries.
