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 home owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many residents find that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower or perhaps remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free 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 lower your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Make a great return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, property electrical power rates have gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or property owner with changing cash flow, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home value

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

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

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

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that choose to operate properly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer buying choices, developing goodwill and improving organisation results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many homeowners choose to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- 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 notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate just how much electricity will be created, and most importantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Financing

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar/Wind Powered Energy Savings?
What Are The Percentages Of Power/Energy Saved By Using Solar Energy And Wind Energy Compared To What We Use On Average?

I may have misread your question, sorry if I did.

There is no energy savings by using an alternative source. Most of the alternative sources are in fact MORE expensive. People choose to pay more for solar, wind, and other alternative sources...a lot more in some cases.

As alternative energies become more efficient and cost effective they replace fossil fuels more and more, but there is still a cost to the production of the PV cells and wind turbines...lots of metal, and lots of composites including plastics, in relation to the power they produce.

Energy savings comes from conservation and increasing efficiency.

Right now, renewable energy accounts for about 7 percent of US energy consumption. Most of the 7 percent is Hydro-electric and wood burning.

I Have To Make A Working Model On Green Energy. What Should I Make?

You can make a solar-panel powered project.
If you want to be fancy build a house model (or use a doll house) and install a couple of LEDs around. Install a couple of solar-panels on roof and connect them to a battery. Connect the LEDs to switches and to the battery and there you have it, a tiny house powered entirely by solar-energy! Or simply do it with a lamp if you wanna keep it simple.

Is Geothermal Energy Eco-Friendly And Why?
Why Is Geothermal Energy A Better Alternative To Oil Considering The Environment?

Yes, but it's not usually 100% Eco-Friendly, unless you also have solar or wind-power.

There's a pumping system that sends liquid through underground pipes, then an electrically driven compressor and a heat exchanger concentrate the Earth's energy and release it inside the home at a higher temperature. Ductwork distributes the heat to different rooms via furnace with blower. The pump, compressor, heat exchanger, and furnace blower all use electricity.

Other than the electricity used there's no emissions (because nothings burned), no waste, no mining, no transportation of materials that might spill.

This electricity might be coming from a coal powered plant - thus not entirely green. But if it's coming from solar or wind, then it's 100% eco-friendly. But even if the elecricity is coming from a non-green source, the amount of electricity needed to run a geothermal system is minor - estimated at $300 to $400 per year for both heating and cooling.

Will Solar Energy Finally Be Respected As The Earths Most Powerful Resource?
Its Our Most Abundant Resource And It Creates Life Instead Of Destroying It. Big Oil And Big Coal Were At One Point Very Expensive And Then Lowered In Price When It Became Common And Popular. Yet The Pollution From Both Is At The Very Least Bad For Mankinds Lives. Pvc Cells Come From Silicon Which Is The 2Nd Most Prevalent Resource On Earth. The Technology Is Not New. Its Actually Over 40 Years Old. It Can Be Put Literally Anywhere As It Has Nothing To Do With Temperature. Sunlight Is Sunlight. Many Countries Where There Is Less Sun Do Not Need Solar Pvc Energy. Iceland Where It Is Dark 3 Months Out Of The Year Depend On Geothermal And Hydroelectric Energy To Power 100% Of The Country. Hydroelectric,Wind,Nuclear And Geothermal Energy Can Provide All The Energy The Usa Needs In The Evening Hours. A Solar Pvc System 3 Times The Size Of Rhode Island Can Power The Entire Usa During The Day. This Easily Fits In Empty Areas Of Utah,Arizona And Nevada. And There Is Room For More !!

You make an important point. The sun energy powers solar cells and drives the wind and waves.
A new solar power cell claimed an energy conversion efficiency of 42%, gasoline motors have a lower efficiency. Solar power cells can be placed on top of homes, deserts, carports, hangars, garages, etc. At the current price of oil they are already the most cost-effective -and the price of oil will continue to increase, thanks to our "friends and enemies."

MIT is developing a floating windmill which would allow thousands of huge windmills (each 5 MW) all over the oceans most too far to provide power with a cable.
To collect the energy they could use the electricity, and highly pure water, to make Hydrogen. The same ships that collect the hydrogen would bring the highly purified water.
These windmills are designed to survive storms but can be driven to other locations to avoid one or avoid bird routes.
Their total power capacity could, eventually, exceed that of oil and nuclear power combined.

I Have A Solar Energy Essay For Bio-Ecology.And I Don't Know How To Start?What Could I Do?
Im Having Trouble On My Essay. I Don't Know Anything About Solar Energy. We're Split Into Groups Of Four And My Topic About Solar Energy Is Solutions;Local,State,National And International. What Does That Mean? Im Lost?And My Biology Teacher He Intimidates Me,Im Too Scared To Ask For Help.Yikesss! :(

Each one in your group discusses possible solutions to the solar energy problem. One person take possible local solutions, another person takes possible state solutions, etc. Each person in your group should do their own research, and be prepared to present their material themselves. But then that's just the way I'd do it....
