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 everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of property owners find that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly reduce or even eliminate your electric expenses

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy expense savings, the average American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy prices have actually increased by approximately three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and manage your expenses.

#4 Boost your house value

Numerous studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties 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 a key component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a great method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal residential solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are essential components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that select to run properly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer buying decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.

#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 property owners choose to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be created, and most significantly, at what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does The Solar Energy Work?
Do Solar Panels Collect The Suns Heat Or Light? Please Answer That Question As Well

According to www.howstufworks.com ­Photovoltaic cells are made of special materials called semiconductors such as silicon, which is currently used most commonly. Basically, when light strikes the cell, a certain portion of it is absorbed within the semiconductor material. This means that the energy of the absorbed light is transferred to the semiconductor. The energy knocks electrons loose, allowing them to flow freely.

Another version of solar energy is solar thermal power. The sun's light and radiant heat is reflected to a thermal heat conductor which heats water or some other media to transfer the heat to a boiler generate steam to drive turbine to generate electricity.

According to a science instructor, wind power is another form of solar power. The sun heats the land. The air is heated by the land and rises. Next, cooler air replaces the hot air. This cause convection winds. These winds contained kinetic energy which can drive a wind turbine. This transfer of this kinetic energy into mechanical energy. The mechanical energy is changed into electrical energy.

Why Are People Afraid To Admit There Are Human Caused Environmental Problems, Especially Global Warming?
I Agree That Global Warming Is Something That We All Have To Grieve And That Denial Is One Of The Steps Of Grieving. And I Hope That We Can Get Past The Denial To Come Up With Our Own Creative And Egalitarian Local, Regional, National, And International Solutions. When You Look At The Positive Energy That Could Accompany Such A Challenge, Instead Of Feeling Powerless, It Could Be A Positive Thing In Our Lives.

In all honesty, there isn't alot that can be done by the average person. With the exception of recycling, everything costs money to convert to an environmentally friendly method. Not many people want to pay that kind of money to replace things that they already have and that work for them. I'd be willing to bet that if hybrids were the same price or cheaper, a ton more people would have them. If solar panels were cheaper to buy and install, almost everyone would have some. At this time, becoming entirely environmentally conscious is not cost effective for most people.

Why Is Energy Efficiency Important In Todays Modern Society?
I Just Need To Know Why Energy Saving Is Important These Days

Hi I am the owner of Mountain Wind & Solar http://mountainwindnsolar.com (please be aware though that this website is still under construction).

Currently most electricity is created by burning coal to turn turbines that Create electricity. So when you are wasting energy, you are also wasting the coal that was used to produce it, and forcing more coal to be burnt to make up for that electricity. Eventually we will run out of coal, and the more coal that is burned the more greenhouse gasses are produced, etc...
