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 resident to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of property owners discover that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically minimize and even remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy costs cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, property electrical power prices have actually increased by an average of three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're a business or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your home or business worth

Several research studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is an excellent way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to operate responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many house owners pick to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Hard Is It To Add Solar Panels To A House?
We Live In A Very High Sun Area, And I'M Thinking Solar Panels Could Do Nothing But Good. How Hard Is It To Implement This, And Does Anyone Have Any Links To Good Info?

I work on a lot homes and I've never seen one that worked more than 2 or 3 years. most of them were disconnected. maybe the future will give us better technology

How Do Solar Powered Cars Work?
How Do Solar Pwered Cars Work? The Process.

Solar panels would charge a battery pack. These batteries would power electric motors at the wheels and propel the vehicle

I don't see these as a practical means of transportation any time soon for the following reasons:

Limited range
Limited capacity
Limited speed
Weather limitations
Less sunlight in the winter months would limit range even more
Accessories such as lighting, ventilation, heating, etc. would reduce range, capacity, or speed.
Could leave you stranded on a cloudy or rainy day
Could not be driven far at night

Would You Pay More For Wind Power?
Hi, I'M Doing My Isu And I Have A Simple Question: Would You Pay More Money On Your Electricity Bill For Wind Power? What About Other Clean Renewable Energy?

I wouldn't pay any more for wind power, or any other kind of green power. The only long-term, sustainable way for green power to work is for it to be more cost effective than other forms of energy. This will happen one of two ways:

1) The government puts so many taxes and restrictions on non-green power (or gives leniency and tax breaks to green power) that it becomes more profitable to utility companies to use green power.

2) The cost of digging for more oil, and supplying other non-green energy forms becomes so expensive due to diminishing raw forms of it that it is more profitable for companies to use green energy.

This is really an economics problem. All businesses will make decisions to make as much profit as possible, even utilities. When green-power fits into this catagory it will be used.

For me wind power takes up too much land for the amount of energy you get in return. I prefer nuclear and clean burning waste to energy incinerators (which would also help to take care of our garbage problem). From the studies I've seen, green energy just isn't efficient enough to power the whole planet. The only option that might be viable is in the area of solar power. If engineers can design a more advanced way to capture the sun's power it's possible that it could power the planet, but it would need to be a lot more efficient than what we have today.

One out of the box idea I like is requiring all buildings to have a power generating wind mill and/or solar panels. This would greatly reduce the need for power from power plants, regardless of their energy source.

What Is The Efficiency Of Solar Panels And How Dependable Are Solar Panels, Why Is This?

There is not room enough here to write everything about the research being done on solar cell efficiency. There are reports of cells that use 40 - 41 per cent of energy from the sun. Boeing and Honda are but a few. Different methods and technologies that are used have brought the % rate over the 40% barrier and more to come. By increasing the total concentration of sunlight on the solar cell it mutiplies the cell area for greater effeciency. Sorry can't go on, but try CNET news.

Can Someone Help Me With Solar Energy?
How Does Solar Energy Reduce The Greenhouse Gas, Global Warming, And Dangers To The Environment?

(fossil fuel is actually stored solar energy, but let's sidestep that)

If you mean "collecting realtime solar energy", as in using solar powered hot water systems, solar panels etc., then compared to burning fossil fuel such as oil or coal, solar energy produces no carbon dioxide (which is a greenhouse gas). The buildup of carbon dioxide beyond naturally-occuring levels is generally held to be causing global warming, whose effects can be seen in the melting of arctic sea ice etc.
The collection of solar energy does not, in general, release pollutants into the environment such as sulphur dioxide or nitrous oxides which are released by burning high-sulphur coal or gasoline.
