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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of property owners find that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize or perhaps eliminate your electric costs

Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity bill savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, residential electricity costs have increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a business or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also assists you better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home or business value

Numerous research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic 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 capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer getting choices, developing goodwill and improving business results.

#9 Start Conserving 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 money down.

Many homeowners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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 well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic math, we can calculate just how much electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

My New Idea For Cell Phones...Remember U Heard It Hear First?
Hybrid Cell Phone..Standard Way Of Charging Or Converting Kinetic Energy From Texting Into Power For The Phone....Think It Will Work...

possibly, but there wouldn't be any way to get a very good charge from texting and the cost of it wouldn't even be worth it... now maybe integrate a solar panel on to the back of a phone maybe...

Are You Worried About Global Warming?
Honestly; Don'T Say 'Yes' Just Because You Feel Obliged! Just Curious, All Answers Are Appreciated, Except The Stupid Ones ;) Thanks Everyone

I am very very worried because governments are not addressing the issue. There is lots of talk but the bottom line is you can't have policy without the science and the science is being ignored again.

I am a very specialized temperature consultant and I have worked in the infrared industry for 30 years. I consulted for oil, gas, lumber, energy, mills, refinery, manufacturing, insurers, etc with the bottom line affecting the economy and energy for millions.

With every election there is a new administration with new environmental mandates and science gets left behind. Yesterday we were imaging buildings and development for solar radiation versus the solar reflection buildings are supposed to employ. In the morning it was -2 Celsius, buildings exteriors were the same. Immediately after sunrise, buildings started to "burn" because of radiation. As the weather stations reported 49 degrees F, some building exteriors were 149 degrees F.

If you put heaters in your room that were 100 degrees hotter than the room, what happens? Room heats up. Here is a link to the visual and it needs to be addressed. Take a look at this link and we are generating extreme atmospheric heat everyday while we treat the symptoms with toxins that are predisposing us to cancers of the breasts, prostrate and testicles. The toxicity ratio in newborns is 100% and we have reproductive problems, I am very very worried.

How Our Solar System Works?
Which Energy And How Our Solar System And Our Universe Depends?What'S The Secret Behind The Birth Of Space?Before The Birth Of Space What Will Be There?

Wow, Kumar..you want the history of the universe right here? I can give you a bottom line, but this is a very complex question and there just isn't room here to answer it with any detail.
The solar system is held in place by the energy of motion balanced with gravitational pull of the sun, curving each planet in an ellipitcal orbit the speed of which is dependent on its distance from the sun. Look up Kepler's laws of planetary motion and you'll get a full explanation.
Our planet depends on heat and light energy from the sun to keep conditions right for life. Our planet formed in the "golden zone", meaning at a distance from the sun to allow moderate temperatures so water can exist as a liquid, something we believe is essential to life. Also, we have enough mass to have enough gravity to hold a breathable atmosphere, also very important.
The universe is thought to have begun with the Big Bang, an explosion of energy so intense that the remnant energy from it is still detectable 14 billion years later. What came before that, no one knows. It is one of the big mysteries of the universe, one we may never solve.
That's the best I can do in a short answer. Your question is actually several different questions. I'd encourage you to take each one and try to research each of them yourself to get a more detailed explanation than I can give you here.

Anyone In The Renewable Energies Field? Specifically Solar?
I'M Considering Double Majoring In Mechanical Engineering And Renewable Energies With An Emphasis On Solar Energy. Does Anyone In The Field Of Renewable Energies Or Clean Energies Know The Job Growth Rate, Job Availability Rate, Average Salary, Or Any Other Information?

Renewable energy is a sham and a hoax foisted on the country by President Obama and his enviro-nazi friends and politicos. The problem is that so called 'renewable energy' is neither economically viable, nor is it friendly to the environment. As soon as Obama is dumped and the pendulum swings back to reason and common sense, I predict there will be little, if any, further investment in this field.

What If We Lined Up Our Entire Interstate Highway System With Solar Panels, Would That Solve The Energy Issue?

Hmm, all these folks yammering on about night-time usage. But just imagine being able to meet ALL of our day-time needs without pollution. You know, the time of day when rates are higher because consumption is higher.

Imagine if every big box store, shopping mall, movie theater and office block had solar panels required as part of the design. We already have similar planning requirements in place like running water, flush toilets and adequate heating, cooling and lighting. This is just a different way of meeting two of those needs. Excess power goes into the grid for other uses.

The highway system might be best used to charge batteries for electric cars. Either top up at the parking space while eating or buy a charged battery and turn the old one in for a deposit.
