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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, many residents discover that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably lower or perhaps eliminate your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a large part of your regular monthly costs. 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 take in, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Make a terrific return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs

In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have actually increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a company or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your costs.

Multiple research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes equipped with solar 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 accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.

Solar is a terrific way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common domestic solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

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

Numerous homeowners opt to finance their solar 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 looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility companies are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Joule Thief Vs Solar Panel?
Ok, So I'Ve Been Having Much Success With The Joule Thief Circuit And A Led, But I Tried Hooking It Up To A Small Solar Panel That Can Put Out 2.5V On It'S Own, And Can Light Up A White Led Dimly By It Self To The Joule Thief And It Will Not Work ....My Question Is Why? I Already Trouble Shooted It, The Circuit Is Not The Problem, Is It The Amount Of Amps The Small Solar Panel Is Capable Of? Not Enough?

Solar panels convert light energy to electrical energy with an efficiency of around 15%.
A "SMALL" solar panel will only produce a small amount of power (watts)
your joule thief circuit wont help because as you draw more current from the solar panel the voltage will drop; and your joule thief circuit just reduces the efficiency of the whole system
Try adding another solar cell in series to get more voltage and more power.

Why Not Make Solar Panels Mandatory?
The Way I See It If Every New House Over 1000Sq.Ft. Puts A Solar Panel On There Roof Coal Factories Wouldn'T Have To Put Out As Much Electricity. Then Make All New Commercial Buildings Over A Certain Sq.Ft. Be Required To Put Solar Panels On. The Bigger The Building, More Solar Panels. The Government Should Make This Technology Cheaper And Easier To Buy. New Buildings And Houses Can Add It On There Mortgage. Etc. Just A Thought. Please Send Replies I Am Thinking About Calling My Representative. The Average System Is 15-30 Thousand Dollars But That For A System To Power Your House All Day And Night. Of Course You Don'T Create Power At Night But You Electric Company Buys What You Don'T Use. I'M Asking To Put A 5Kwh Or Smaller On All New Houses Put The Cost In You Mortgage Should Only Add 1-5 Thousand Dollars.

The price is to high! the systems fail. the though is good. mandatory? we need an energy policy that promotes clean energy/wind, solar PV, solar thermal, solar hot water, solar A/C and chillers, nukes, and taxes to the real price of oil, coal, beef....

Solar Paneling - How Good Is It? Worth The Set Up Costs?
Any Information On Solar Paneling Now, How Is It Better, How Long Will A Panel Last, Can I Run An Entire Home On It If I Have The Right Amount Of Sunlight? Any Info From People With First Hand Experience Would Be Appreciated.

It depends a lot on where you live for two reasons - how much sun you get, and the financials - price of electricity and possible incentives.

I'd suggest solar hot water first - cheaper to put in, quicker payback.

We put up solar electric in 2006. It's not a big moneymaker in our location, and also, I unfortunately oversized our system. Still, it's comparable to the electric company, maybe a slight savings over time. Pretty much no maintenance, no problems.

What you can do is get a local solar installer to quote you on a system, then compare that to your possible electric bills over the life of the system. It will likely last 20-25 years - that's the standard warranty on panels.

Solar Panels Question: What Module (Approximate Kw?) Can Be Installed On A 900 Sq. Feet Flat Roof Near Toronto?
Hi, Feedback From Anyone With Knowledge On The Topic Would Be Appreciated! Thanks.

Toronto is about latitude 45 degrees. A flat roof does not sound like a good place to put solar panels at high latitude. Even if we ignore the issue of snow collecting on the panels, if you lay them flat on the roof, you'll throw away some 30 percent of the energy right off the bat. And if you arrange the panels in tilted rows, then the front row will block the one behind it in the winter. All that said, if the roof is a square, 30 feet on a side, it seems you could fit a single tilted row of panels on it without drawbacks. I'm guessing that would be 2.5 kW or so. That also assumes there are no obstructions like other buildings, wires, or drain vents.

Try contacting a local solar installer for an opinion.

12 Volt Solar Panel + Dc To Ac Inverter?
Can You Use A 12 Volt Solar Panel With A Cigarette Lighter Connector Straight To A Dc To Ac Inverter? To Charge Things Like A Laptop (Or Hold A Charge, May Not Be Powerful Enough To Charge It) Maybe Have A Battery Between? Would That Help? Like A Motorcycle Battery? Im Going On A Trip And Need A Cheap Way To Keep Things Charged.

You need a battery to hold and equalize the charge.

You will need an 80W+ panel to have a net gain.

I recommend an AGM 8GU1 type battery for that sort of duty, and a 150W inverter.
