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

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price variations in worldwide energy markets.

Lots of homeowners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier 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 Financial investment

The energy companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

this is the easy way to save energy

Do Solar Panels On Above Ground Pools Really Heat The Pool Water In Iowa?
We Are Thinking About Purchasing Solar Panels, But Are Concerned That Because Of Our Weather In The Upper Midwest, They Won'T Heat The Water Enough. How Many Degree Rise Can We Expect?

Hmm, well we have solar panels on our pool, but he have an olympic sized pool. Pro-tip, if you have a smaller pool its a gigantic waste of money. You won't get that much out of it anyway, I would stick to the old solar canvas cover.

Solar Panel Placement Idea?
Hello, I Have Been Trying To Go Green, I Have Purchase Some Solar Panel They Are About 45Watts I Been Putting It Against My Window And Getting Ok Power Out Of It Enough For My Lights And A Couple Of Low Watts Gadget (Cellphone, 12V Light, Portable Dvd) For Couple Of Hours. But Its Seem To Drain The 12V Faster Then I Can Charge Am I Getting The Most Power Out Of My Panel? Or Should I Place It On The Roof? I'm In Texas And It Gets Hot And Sunny The Sun Beam My Room Windows Pretty Good During 4Pm-6Pm.

outside is going to be much better. You can't tell but glass is actully opaque to many ranges of 'light'.
If you look at advertising for windows you may see claims to reduce sun fading of your carpet/ furniture. That is because the glass blocks UV. Solar panels get some of their energy from UV light.
Also some windows are engineered to block IR to help insulate better when the house is cooler than the outside. Again, solar panels get some of their energy from light in the infrared range.
And finally if you're charging batteries the 'off angle time' is still important. The amount of light absorbed is pretty closely related to the cosine of the angle that the sun is 'off' of the direct. so when the sun is 45 degrees off of perpendicular the panels still get cos45 =.707 or about 70% of the available energy. (In practice it's a little less than that because not as much energy gets to the panel to be absorbed as at midday). But anyway, you can figure two hours of morning or late afternoon sun will give you as much energy as 1 hour of midday sun. So if the panel is inside, you miss out on that available energy.
