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 use the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of homeowners find that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly reduce or perhaps eliminate your electrical expenses

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus 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, residential electrical power costs have gone up by approximately 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a service or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Increase your house worth

Several research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer quicker than non-solar houses.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

Solar is a terrific way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible 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 get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

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

Many house owners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electrical energy-- 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

Frequently Asked Questions

Energy Tax Credit For Home Solar Panels. Can This Credit Be Carried Forward And/Or Backward Years?

Solar Panels Are Expensive Should I Get Them?

Getting solar panels may be an investment, but it will save you many times more what you paid for it. You could also get a lease which costs you nothing up front. There are many online tools which can tell you how much you would need to spend and how much you would save.

Can I Run A Desktop Computer With A Solar Panel?
I Am Moving To Hawaii And The House We Are Living In Has Independent Electricity. (Solar Panels And Gas Powered Generators.)

The system in the Hawaiian house has solar panels that charge a battery bank. If the sun doesn't shine enough, the generator will kick on and provide the extra power needed. An inverter converts the DC voltage stored in the batteries to AC power that you plug into a wall outlet to use. Depending on the inverter, it should be exactly the same as the AC you buy from the electric company now, so anything that you currently plug in to use will work.

The exception is if they are using an inexpensive modified sine wave inverter, that doesn't generate as clean power as a pure sine wave inverter. Some delicate electronics may have trouble running on it. You may want to ask the house owners which type of inverter it is. If they don't know, ask them the model and you can easily look it up.

Can I Power Converter On Solar Pannels Without Battery?
I Have An 200 Watts Dc To Ac Inverter I Have No Battery For It But I Have 2 Solar Pannels Of Each 6 Volts I Will On Them At Sunlight And At Evening I Will Off It Will It Work For Converter To Use It Without Any Problems

Its a likely improbability that this will work as solar panels are rarely direct use in domestic installations as they are generally low current output. Also the inverter would only work in daylight hours. You need a battery or batteries for this application and you will need to calculate the Ampere hour rating required for this load. If you intend running the inverter for long periods its unlikely the solar panels will be able to keep up sufficient charge. The Ampere output of the solar panels is a bit of information you need.

Whats A Good Store To Buy A Solar Panel To Charge 6 Car Batteries.?
I Also Dont Know What Size I Need To Charge Them.

You can find a wide selection of solar panels for sale here.

The size of the solar panel will be determined by a few factors. The key factors will be the capacity of the battery bank (in Amp Hours), how quickly you want the solar panels to recharge your batteries, and also what your solar resources are. There are a lot of informative articles on these subjects here.

You can still use batteries to store your energy produced by the solar panels, just make sure to use "deep cycle" batteries and not car batteries. Deep cycle batteries are designed for a continuous slow discharge and recharge over the course of a day (perfect for solar applications). Car batteries are designed to provide a very quick discharge of a lot of captive energy (in order to start the car's engine) and are also designed to be quickly recharged by the car's alternator.
