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.

Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still conserve a lot of money.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, property electricity costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. 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 a company or house owner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your house worth

Several studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 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. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

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

Sustainability and business social duty are necessary elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to run properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and improving business outcomes.

#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 money down.

Numerous property owners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy companies are infamous for their varying and undependable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Energy?
How Is Solar Energy Better Then Some Of The Current Enrgy Resources

Solar energy is not necessarily better than hydro or wind power. Solar energy is restricted to daytime sourcing, whereas hydro may be round the clock and adjustable in volume, but most significantly it may be much less costly.

Wind power is also unreliable, but is very economical when the wind blows.

Solar power in teh form of electricity is of course much more costly at the present time than nuclear or coal. New developments appear to be changing that.
Solar power as direct heating is much more economical than coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear. Other than geothermal (hot springs) it is the most economical source of heat. Again, Solar is not the best heat source if you have hot springs.

Solar (photovoltaic) power is very practical as a supplement to wind power... providing a daily base that can be depended upon, whereas wind can not.

Photo-voltaics can be produced with almost no toxic emissions, but this can not be claimed for all photovoltaics.
Solar panels do not produce a lot of noise or other pollution during operation.

How Does Generating Electricity Affect The Environment?
Plz Help By Tomorrow Plz Answer

It completely depends on how it's generated. If it's generated by burning fossil fuels like coal or oil then it releases a bunch of CO2 and other pollutants.

If it's hydroelectric then you are interrupting the natural flow of a river which could be good for flood control or it could be a disaster for native species.

If it's geothermal the impact may be minimal aside from building seem wells in natural habitats.

Solar energy has almost no impact if you exclude any pollution created during the manufacture of the solar panels.

Wind power has little physical impact, but giant fields of windmills can be considered an eyesore.

Nuclear power if generally very clean and safe - especially modern plants. But there is the issue of how to dispose of spent fuel. And in the case of a melt down - like the Chernobyl disaster in the former Soviet Union - an entire area can be left virtually uninhabitable for many years.

What Type Of Energy Resources Are Solar, Wind, And Geothermal Energy?
A. Renewable B. Non-Renewable C. Expensive D. Limited

Depends on how stupid your teacher is. All are considered "renewable" however, they are expensive, and they do have thier limitations. Only the whacked out "green" moron's of yester year would deny it. There's a new wind of change happening now days, people are sick and tired of eco freaks telling them that they aren't doing enough, thier efforts don't show any results and tired of spending thier hard earned cash on someone elses 'agenda'.
Now that the cold hard facts are starting to hit people whom were acting like stupid sheep before, lapping up all the BS these green supporters spouted off, they are angry and not listening to them as much. With all the so called "experts" whom have sold thier reputations down the river for fame and to "jump on that bandwagon", they have little credibility today.

Is Solar Energy Expensive?
I Am Doing A Report On Solar Energy And I Need To Know If Solar Energy Is Expensive Or Not. Please Be Serious Please Its Really Important Thanks!

It's a matter of perspective. I had a system installed on my house that produces over 50% of my winter electricity and 75% of my summer electricity. It cuts my electric bills by about $2000 per year. The system cost $26K, but I got a rebate from my utility of $10K so I only paid $16K. Many people would say that is a lot of money. The system will pay for itself in 6.5 years, it is guaranteed for 25 years, so I will be getting most of my energy for free for about 18 years. If you also take into account that electricity rates increase an average of 5% each year, which means in about 14 years will will be paying double what we are paying today for electricity. I will be saving well over $50K over the life of the panels.

They have become more affordable with better tax credits as well. I only got a $2K fed tax credit. Starting this year you can get 30% of the total cost as a tax credit which would have increased my tax credit to $7800.

Another thing to compare it to. I paid $32K for my pool and $22K for my wood floors. So, my panels are the least expensive of the major upgrades I've made to my home.
