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 property owner to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly reduce or even remove your electric costs

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary 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 decrease your energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of money.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, domestic electrical power costs have actually gone up by approximately three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or homeowner with rising and falling money flow, going solar also assists you much better forecast and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your property value

Multiple research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties 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 a key element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 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 considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a great way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of customer getting decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing business 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.

Lots of homeowners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility companies are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Questions About Solar Panels For Residential Use?
How Much Do You Think It Would Cost For Installation? I Heard That Solar Panels Can Store Electricity And Any Excess Electricity Gets Sold Back To The Electric Company. How Much Money Can A Home Owner Make From Doing This? Do You Think Solar Panels Are Worth It?

If you're in a sunny area, and the cost of electricity is high, solar panels can be worth it. But it's not a big moneymaker, it's something that pays back over long timeframes. We live in northern California, and our system is about break even, but that's because our electricity usage was low to begin with. If you want to see our system, look at the web page in my profile.

Are panels worth it in your area? The only way to know for sure is to find a local installer in your phone book, and then ask for local references. If you can't find a local installer, that's a clue, and if they can't give you any references that are nearby, that's another clue.

The panels don't actually store energy, the energy is sold back to the power company when what you produce is more than you consume, driving the meter backwards. Again, this is not a big moneymaker, and in fact, it may be impossible to make a profit, depending on your local laws.

How Do Solar Panels Work?
Ive Tried Reaserching It But I Never Get A Clear Answer Or The Answer Is For Insiders Who Work With This.

When light hits the semiconductors in the panel, the electrons absorb the energy and are knocked free from the atoms and flow freely in one direction to create an electric current.

Why Are Solar Panels So Expensive?
It Is Very Convenient For Power Companies That We Can Not Get Free Power From Sun. Is It A Real Technological Problem Or It Is Only A Political Issue?

Because producing solar cells requires lots of fossil fuel derived energy, more than they produce during their life, in most cases!

Why Do People Think Solar Power Is Energy Efficent?
At Cost It Runs 3 To 1 But A Old Fashioned Heat Pump Runs 5 To 1 , And The Amount Of Crap That Goes Into Solar Panel Construction Out Ways The Total Benefits And Finally The Things Are Nearly Impossible To Repair Compared To Heat Pumps , So The Panel Is Scrapped And A New One Fitted

Your use of Solar Power is kind of vague. Passive systems are very efficient because if they are set up right, they use virtually no power, or can be rigged to run on nothing.

The most basic of basic is just letting the sun come though a south facing window during the day. I have even seen jars of water and rock boxes used to retain heat for the evening hours.

I think you are going on about PV systems that generate electricity. They vary in performance, and performance can vary on installation. If you mount them on moving platform that can follow the sun, you will get the most use, or efficiency out of them. To complicate, you just cannot hook these things to your house. All have to go though a conversion to AC, and the equipment used can effect that efficiency as well. In short, it would be hard to judge what your basing your figures on until you specify the exact set up, the stated outputs, the actual outputs, the entire set up, and where you live.

How Expensive Will Artificial Photosynthesis Be?(Cost Analysis)?
How Expensive Will Artificial Photosynthesis Be?(Cost Analysis) Material Cost, Operation Costs, Maintenance Cost, Etc.. Any Help Is Greatly Appreciated

It would be more expensive than the average solar panel. For one its experimental and second its about 300% more effective than solar panels. Plants use 90% of the sunlight that hits them, solar panels only use 30
