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, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, many homeowners find that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably minimize or perhaps remove your electric bills

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big part of your regular monthly expenses. 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 consume, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, property electricity costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a company or property owner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home worth

Multiple research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost variations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs 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 anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great way to lower 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 three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are important components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that select to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and improving service results.

#9 Start Conserving 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 loan down.

Lots of property owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and basic math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be generated, and most importantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

If I Had A Solar Panel That Was 15&Quot; By 15&Quot; And Had A 500% Efficiency Rating, How Many Watts Would I Get?

Sorry. They're not being honest with you, and you should ask for a 500% refund to see what their response is.

Solar PV panels currently on the market have about a 15 - 20 percent efficiency rating. There are new processes that claim 40 percent efficiency. Just so you understand: 100 percent efficiency is the most possible. To get 500 percent (five tmes the amount of energy supplied by the sun) you would need a miraculous process that multiplies the energy somehow.

A little 15 inch square panel would produce about 16 watts on a sunny day.

Solar Panels (How To Manage Solar Panel Energy)?
How Does One Connect An Outlet To A Solar Panel And How Do You Store Solar Energy? Recommended Products Please...

You store power in lead acid batteries (heavy duty car batteries). You use a diode with it so when sun goes down the power from batteries doesn't go back to solar cells.

Then you have to run an inverter that switches power from 12V DC (if you use car batteries) to 120V AC to run household appliances. The inverter is the same thing that you can use in your car if you want to plug laptops etc into your car. It uses your car battery for power and has a receptacle in the inverter identical to want is in your house. You can buy inverters about anywhere, Autozone, Harbor Freight tools , Northern Tools, etc
inverters:

and solar panels:

This can be very expensive for home use energy.

And you need a charge controller, which controlls the charge to your battery ( takes the place of the diode above so use this instead)

Google "homemade solar power" and you'll get lots of info

How Can Eco Friendly Homes Help The Environment?

hungry raccoons and other things can eat the wrappings on the solar panels and stuff.

Are Solar Panels A Good Home Investment?

yes they are they will pay for themselfs they could save you up to £500-800 a year on energy bills depending on the size of your house.

Do Out Door Solar Lights Work?
L C Them In Peoples' Yards But L Don'T Know How Well It Works. Lf It Gets It'S Power From The Sun, Then How Come There'S Little Batteries In It?

The batteries are rechargeable and the solar panel charges them, which then in turn powers the bulb.

People who think they don't work usually have used them incorrectly. Or bought crappy lights.

The Christmas light example is perfect: Christmas lights or for that matter MOST solar lights have a tool that detects darkness, turning the light on. So, if you use solar Xmas lights and regular Xmas lights, the solar lights will not work well. Or, if you try solar lights and have lots of other lights (such as spotlights, street lights or lamp posts) they won't work well.

We have solar lights and even when it rained for five days straight, our motion detector spots, lamp post and good quality accent lights still worked because the little day light there was (along with stored power) kept them working. Granted, by the fourth and fifth night, they weren't as bright as normal, but they were still on at 4:00 am the last day of rain before the sun came back.

The article below is a good source of why people get the wrong idea about solar lights. If you are interested, they are also have a sale and rumor has it there may be a BIG-**** sale for Memorial Day.
