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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. 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 significant, numerous residents find that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly reduce or perhaps remove your electric costs

Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can make up a large portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial 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 substantial electricity bill savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a service or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise assists you better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your home or business value

Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development 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 factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to operate responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer getting decisions, producing goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many property owners choose to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 fluctuating and unreliable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine just how much electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Combined With Solar Panels On Your Roof....Can A Generator Power A Small House? Indefinately?
Hi! I Don'T Know Much About Generators. I Know That When I Was A Kid A Neighbour Had One For Blackouts And Things And That It Was Super Noisy......Are They Still Really Noisy? Can You Get One That Would Run A Small Household....A 3 Bed-One Floor House For A Conservative (Trying To Watch The Electric Useage) Houseold? What Do They Run On? Petrol? Or...? Because Every Winter Our Town Gets Super Storms And Constant Power Failures. And I Have To Resort To A Gas Camping Pilot And Torches And Candles...But Its Getting Harder The Bigger My Daughters Get. Any Info You Can Give Me Would Be Great. :)

First of all, let me advise you to spend a lot of time researching someplace besides Yahoo Answers. There are a lot of jerks here who will give you bad or just weird advice.

That said, I'm no jerk, and I'm fairly smart. So let's crack on:

There are small, emergency generators that are designed for temporary or remote use. They're usually portable, small enough to fit in the boot of a car with no difficulty. They won't run much: a few light bulbs, a TV or computer, maybe a small refrigerator. They WON'T run all those things at the same time. They run on petrol and can be had for as little as a few hundred dollars. For an example: http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/p...

There are larger generators intended for remote use, like powering tools at a construction site where there is no mains power. These are more substantial and aren't easily moved about without a truck. Where the previous example was relatively small and is designed to be sorta quiet, these big fellows with their jobsite intentions aren't as carefully designed for quietness. So when they're fired up, they're pretty noisy. For an example: http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/p... This one is about a thousand dollars, your local prices will probably be different.

The level beyond this is the permanently installed option. Before we were looking at devices that would simply sit outside your home, and you would run extension cords through a slightly-opened window to make things happen. Now we're into the residential standby generator which must be permanently installed. A licensed electrician will have to make some substantial alterations to your home's wiring to install the transfer switch and keep everything code compliant. When it's in place, the residential standby looks a bit like an air conditioner. When running it's louder than HVAC, but it's quieter than either of the previous two models. These are designed to run on the gas the utility company pipes to your house, so no stocking up on jerry cans of petrol is required. Don't forget to change the oil once in a while, though. For an example: http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/p... This is the most expensive option and unlike the previous two, there are further costs to cover before you can use it.

As to solar, when there are storms there isn't much light. You'd have to have battery backups. Installing a battery solar electric system will cost tens of thousands of dollars to do the whole house. But for a budget, you could take one room off the power grid, separate its electric supplies from the others, and install a battery backup solar system that fed that for mere hundreds of dollars. Do it modestly: choose a bedroom and the bathroom to solarize. Don't worry about the refrigerator: if the power goes out in the middle of winter, just move the food outside in coolers. It's already cold out there, it'll be fine.

Sunpower Solar Panels?
Do Higher Watt Solar Panels Last Longer, Efficiency-Wise? 3 Installers Gave Me Quotes With 3 Different Sunpower Panels. The 225, 215, 210 Watt Panels. Whats The Con And Pro'S Of The Different Wattages?

There is no difference between them besides their rated output. One may physically fit on you roof better than another, or look better, although the physical difference between those sizes is minimal. Go with whichever installer you trust, and is preferably NABCEP certified, or working towards NABCEP certification. Get references. Don't believe just because someone is an electrician they know how to install solar electric, it's a whole different animal. Make sure they are trained in installing solar.

Is My Solar Panel Big Enough?
I Took Some Solar Yard Lights Apart And Put Them Together In A Series. I Was Told If You Take Amps Times Volts = Watts. Do You Test It With Ac Volt Or Dc Volts? I Tested Mine With Dc Volts And Got 41 Volts In Good Sun And Had My Meter Set On Ma Or Milliamps And Got .83 Which I Am Asuming That Is .83 Of One Amp Now I Took Those And Multiplied .83 Times 41 Volts To = 34.03 Watts. Is This Large Enough To Charge A Car Battery In A Day? And Doese It Make A Difference For Amps On How Fast It Charges Or Watts. I Also Was Looking Around And Found 30 Watt Panels But Had Higher Amps. I Am Very Interested In Building Solar Panels But I Realize I Dont Know What I Need To Do To Make Shur They Are Big Enough. My Panel Is Only 9Inch By 10 Inch. It Seems Weird That I Am Putting Out 41 Volts

A solar panel is a DC device, you so want DC voltage.


I don't think your panel is big enough: milliAmps are THOUSANDTHS of an amp, not hundredths. So 83 mA = 83/1000 = 0.083A, ie your power is 3.403 watts rather than 34.03 watts.

To get a 30W output in good sunlight you'll typically need a panel area that's equivalent to about about 50cm x 50cm.



Car batteries are apparently about 1kWh:
http://mb-soft.com/public2/storing.html

So even if you had 30W, you'd need to run it for 1000/30 = 33 hours in good sunlight. So it won't do a great job.


The reasons for the tiny output will probably be the small surface area (normally people cover whole roofs in solar panels and that way you get sensible power output), and because yard lights are cheap, so have cheap solar panels made from the cheapest amorphous silicon they can get their hands on - so they're not very efficient either!

The jetpack you have to use instead of the solar power (if you want) okay, when Herbert is trying to grab the golden puffle statue, you put the jetpack behind the cage to make it capture Herbert. The table, the balls, and the clothes, you have to put the table outside of the gift shop and put the balls and clothes on it to get the award of helping him at the end of the game!

Hope this helps! ;)
