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 a/c, washing clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of homeowners find that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically decrease or even eliminate your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Make a terrific return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power rates have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or property owner with rising and falling money flow, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home worth

Several research studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped 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 component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

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

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are necessary parts of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that select to operate properly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer getting choices, developing goodwill and improving service results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of house owners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- 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 energy business are well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can determine how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Where Does The Energy For Convection Come From?

Although year-to-year variations arise from thermal energy differences and other contributors such as tectonic uplift, the basic climatological structure of atmospheric circulation on the global scale remains at near-equilibrium conditions, as does the energy cycle through the Earth. Thus, the energy driving convection in the atmosphere was not created in isolation and does not act alone.


Rather, Earth's energy cycle is a connected chain of energy transactions that is continuously running and driving downstream processes. Starting from the conversion of incoming solar flux into surface heat, geothermal energy, tidal energy, etc., each energy-requiring process pushes the next step in the sequence, and convection of air in the atmosphere is one of the links in the connected chain that was driven by previous steps and will drive subsequent steps.


Therefore, convection in the atmosphere is not driven by any immediately identifiable energy source (since all contributing energy also came from elsewhere), but as a step in the flow of energy throughout the Earth connects into an interwoven energy cycle at steady-state conditions that fuels water circulation, material flow, biological processes, so on and so forth.



Similarly, the circulation of ocean water is the sum of contributing variables such as breaking waves, wind, Coriolis force, temperature and salinity differences, and tides caused by the gravitational pull of the Moon and the Sun, all of which are processes driven by other upstream processes. The interconnected energy cycle continues to run at steady-state conditions, with the cause and effects of upstream energy transactions adding up to the circulation process of ocean water.

Best Solar Companies To Invest In?
Please Olny Reply If You Know What You Are Talking About. Thanks

While FSLR is the most expensive solar stock, it has the best technology. Obama is big on solar, we all know that. Which solar companies benefit from this interest is yet to be seen. Will the new administration go for quality over quantity, we don't yet know. To be sure, solar stocks should gain in momentum and price. If you're interested in solar, as I am; I would recommend the solar ETF (TAN) or the energy sector ETF (XLE). Those are my choices.

How Do Solar Panels Cause An Electron Uniform Movement (Current) From Photons?
Or What Ever It Is That Makes Them Work.....

It is somewhat sophisticated, but the panels are made of semi-conductors which do not carry electricity as easily as a conductor (like copper or gold) but under certain conditions they do conduct. Electricity is carried by electrons that pried off the outer or "valence" level of the atom and bumped to the next atom. Think of a long line of grocery carts. When you add on at the end and push, the last one at the other end moves. Anyway, solar panels are arrays of material and they gain energy when photons or waves of sunlight hit the surface. Each photon is imparts enough energy to loosen an electron and this sends a really small (but usable) amount of current through the circuit. The panel has lot of arrays which allows for enough electricity to be created to be useful.

In the near future, expect panels to be made of easy to use materials and to be made into skins to cover cars like paint and houses like shingles and siding. With small wind turbines, hopefully we can get some homes off the grid and charge cars overnight with stored energy from the day. Then, we will ne more worried about global cooling than warming!!!

Why Is It That Renewable Energy Are Not Widely Used?

the cost of using fossil fuels to produce energy as been the cheapest. Renewable energy such as solar and wind is still in the growing stages. So the cost have been higher to install. Plus with fossil fuel you get a more a continues source to supply electric. With solar and wind, mother nature shows her hand to make it more sporadic. You have to have a breezy day for wind and low cloud cover for solar to be viable. Then you get into the night part of it. If you produce solar power you need to store it for night time use. Battery technology is improving but still lags behind where it need to be to be cost effective. Then you have to replace them every 7-10 years.

There is also education or breaking old habits. Some people don't care where or how their energy come from, just as long as it is there when they want it. We need to change how we live and save energy.

Why Is Solar Energy Renewable?
I Need Help On My Assignment

Solar energy is considered renewable because it is a resource that will not run out, unlike oil, gas and coal. We can't actually use up all the solar energy because the sun keeps on shining and its energy will stay for us to use for a long time. Another example of a renewable resource is water. We will drink it and use it, but in the end it will just come back down as precipitation.
