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

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power costs have gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with changing money flow, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and manage your expenditures.

Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

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

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many house owners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar company 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 Investment

The utility business are well-known for their changing and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy math, we can compute how much electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Renewable Energy Form Has The Least Amount Of Negative Impact On The Envioronment?
Solar Is Nice, But How Much Energy & Chemicals Are Used To Make The Solar Panels. Geothermal Is Nice Too, Except Along With The Steam Comes The Other Nasty Byproducts That Come Up With The Steam, Depending Upon Where The Steam Is Coming From. Wind Is Nice Too, But What About The Cost, Energy & Materials Used To Make A Single 50 Kilowatt Turbine. Ocean-Thermal Is Nice Too, But Vulnerable To Storms & Needs To Be Degunked Often. (The U Of Hawaii Attempted Otech Many Years Ago To Test Its Viability & Pitfalls). All The Alternate Energy Solutions Require Components That Are Not Necessarily Conscientiously Green Friendly. Which One Has The Least Impact On The Environment?

Methane from Biomass.
The methane is made from decaying organic waste which is inherently renewable.
The by product is carbon dioxide, but the net carbon cycle is neutral as the carbon in 're-absorbed' into new plants which become the fuel the next time around. This makes it better than fossil fuels which release carbon that has been trapped under ground for millenia.
The technology is well developed and highly efficient as in natural gas turbines.

Solar Panel Manufacturing?
Im Interested In Starting A Solar Panel Manufacturing Company. Ive Researched On How To Make Them And It Doesnt Look Too Hard, And Is Definitely Something I Can Figure Out. I Would Be Starting From Nothing So My Question Is What Are The Chances Of Me Actually Selling A Lot Of Panels And The Business Actually Succeding? Thanks

No solar manufacturer is really making much money right now, so panels are going for cutthroat prices. You will have to answer the following for your prospective business:

1) How much time and money will you allocate to regulatory approvals, such as UL? Without these, the panels are generally illegal for installation in a grid-tied system.

2) If you decide to forego the approvals, you could still sell the panels, but they would be for off-grid and hobbyists, and worth less. You would have to compete with solar laminate from places like sunelec.com

3) Figure out how much labor and material cost would go into each panel. Would you locate in the US? It's hard to beat the big players in China, in this commodity market. It would be like having a small company to make laptops, and trying to beat HP, Dell,and Lenovo.

I Have To Build A Solar House Which Has To Be Cold Inside For Science, I Dont Know What To Make It Out Of?

How Can You Charge A Car Battery With Solar Panel?
I Have A 10 Watt Solar Panel. I Want To Charge A Car Battery With It. What Other Equipment Or Peripherals I Would Need? Thank You

That panel is too small to charge a car battery. You won't get more than half an amp out of it.

How To Make Solar Panel Turn Off Led When Light Contact With Solar Panel?
I'Ve Recently Connected A Solar Panel To A Battery Wires Which Connects To An Led Wiring. I'M Trying To Figure Out A Way, Even Make A Motherboard, To Make The Led Turn Off In Light And Charge The Battery But Don'T Know How. Please Help Me.

I just did one. I used a phototransistor in a voltage divider circuit hooked up to the reset pin of a 555 timer. then ground the trigger pin.
I had set up the circuit to blink the led as an option but if you ground the trigger i will not blink. But when the voltage on the reset pin (4) goes under .7 volts the output is low. Set up the phototransistor in series with a 10k resistor and tie the reset pin to the phototransistor.
So when the resistance of the phototransistor goes low enough the voltage across it goes less than .7 volts and the 555 turns off.
