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 homeowner to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many residents find that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize or even eliminate your electrical bills

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a big portion of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power prices have gone up by approximately 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with rising and falling money circulation, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Several research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up 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 accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall 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 have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that choose to run responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing business results.

#9 Start Saving 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 money down.

Lots of house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility business are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate how much electrical power will be created, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).


What are the various payment options?

We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

How Do You Figure How Many Solar Panels You'Ll Need On A House?
What If I Wanted To Run All These Things With Solar Power, How Many Solar Panels And What Type Of Solar Panels Would It Take? Computer Washer Dryer Lights (Maybe Like 10 Lights, Not All At Once) Stove Refridgerator Coffee Pot

First of all, Running a washer and Dryer would require a very large system alone. Electric stove is also probably out of question.
Most people have an unrealistic expectaion of a normal Solar system. One panel (About 3X5 ft.) only can supply about 70 Watts of power for 6-8 hours on a nice sunny day. One panel costs about $400 dollars, then you also will spend several thousands of dollars for your Inverter / controller. One panel will supply enough power for maybe 1-2 light bulbs. Each panel will only provide about 500 Watt-Hours a day on a sunny day.
An average electric house may use like 50 Kilowatt-Hours a day. That is 50,000 Watt-Hours. It would take 100 Panels. This kind of system would be very costly and impracticle for most users.
If you want to go completly solar, you must forget dryers, frost free frig, electric heat, Air conditioning, Pumps or any other large electrical loads.
I help my friends work on their systems. It is a community that has no grid power. Everyone is completely independant. Most have 12-16 panels, a large bank of batteries, and at least a 10KW Generator. These systems cost $35,000-$40,000, and still cannot provide any heat or air conditioning without running the generator.
If you want to help the environment, just buy what panels and inverter you can afford, and supplement your power needs, unless you are willing to radically change lifestyle when you go totally solar.

Another option is to get your system free from someone like the link below. Here you just pay for the power it produces and are guaranteed for something like 25 years the rate will not change.

Can A Broken Solar Panel Be Cut With A Bandsaw?
Im Looking To Buy Broken Solar Panels And Cut Them Down To Size, Could This Be Done With A Bandsaw?

Before you do that it is better for you to understand the structure of a solar cell. You may go to to see the diagram.
Besides solar cell is made from very thin and fragile silicon, it has its electrical structure, the positive contact and negative contact. These two structures are needed so that electricity can be flowed when generated.

Unless you are very clear and sure with the structure of the solar panel that you are going to cut, it is not advisable to cut it manually. You can easily break your solar panel.

For more information about solar technology you can go to . It is a very good website which provides free online solar power course. You can get a lot of useful information here.

Why Do Warmists Have Trouble Believing In A Giant Conspiracy To Distort The Truth?
... When That'S Clearly What Most Of Them Believe Religion Is? I Understand Why People Might Think That Global Warming Is Not A Conspiracy, Just Not Why They Would Think It'S Absurd To Believe It Is? If 97% Of All Priests Believe In God. Does That Consensus Make It Impossible For Religion To Be A Conspiracy?

I for one do not believe religion is a giant conspiracy.

Distortion (or rather denial) of the truth, yes, but not a giant conspiracy.

<<I understand why people might think that Global Warming is NOT a conspiracy, just not why they would think it's absurd to believe it is?>>

That is probably because you simply cannot be bothered with facts to back-up your wild claims. And that is not limited to conspiracy theories alone.

<<If 97% of all Priests believe in God.
Does that consensus make it impossible for Religion to be a conspiracy?>>

Nonsensical question. If they are priests, the de-facto position is that all 100% of them believe in God while the existing consensus can in no shape or form be compared to a scientific consensus as in most if not all religions, scientific proof of the existence of a God is inexistant.

Like in religion, the deniers just love to make lots of wild claims (which their greedy followers take for granted without questions asked) without ever providing any proof whatsoever to back up those claims.

Edit #PQ:

<<You can't 'prove' God exists because God IS existence & existence is the presumption that proof is possible.>>

How convenient.

Of course, your little 'excuse' implies that every single god of every single religion exists which in turn contradicts the many claims by these gods (ie, having singlehandedly created the earth and the universe, to name just one such pesky little religious details).

<<Hence whether AGW is true or false, it's still a Religion because it tells people how to live their lives.>>

So to you religion basically boils down to being told how to live your life? Right.

FYI, those who 'believe' in AGW will not go to 'eco-heaven' just because they have bothered to install solar panels or double glazing. They're still [email protected] as long as the 'non-believers' in AGW manage to dominate the political arena and delay any meaningful global action.

Don't try mixing religion with reality. The Creationists have tried it and failed time and time again.

Can I Put A Solar Panel On My House To Power My Hole House?
I Want To Save Money By Putting A Solar Panel On My House To Power It Is It Even Legal I Thought Instead Of Paying Money For Electricity Bill Why Not Use The Sun

Yes. It would be more than one panel. I did solar last year. I went with Sun Power panels. Very energy efficient 327 watt panels. I have 24 panels on my roof. South facing is the best. I live in L.I., NY and was allowed to go up to 105% of my last year's electric usage. It's not cheap, even with rebates and tax credits. You also have to have a relatively new roof with at least 30 years left of wear. I had to get a new roof at an additional cost over and above the cost for solar. But it's all worth it. My electric bills for the last 6 months have been minimal. Solar did cost over $36,000 and then you apply credits and rebates. It was $11,000 final cost after applying rebates and tax credits, plus the cost of the roof. The payback for me is about 5 years. It is one of the best investments I ever made.
