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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners find that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly minimize and even eliminate your electric expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity expense cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, property electricity rates have increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home or business value

Numerous research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up 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 part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price variations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with 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. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is an excellent way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of customer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

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

With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How To Use A Home-Made Solar Panel?

Are you referring to an Electrical Generating Panel, or a Passive water heating panel?

Edit: Can you explain how you made a 'home made' solar panel without understanding how it would be used?

How Does The Solar Power System Run With Electrical Energy?
I Need To Write A Report. Please Help!! :)

There are several different types of solar panels to capture solar energy for homes. There are also a number of ways to concentrate solar energy for use in power stations.

Solar panels can be photovoltaic and produce electricity. By combining the panels in a series you are electrically concentrating the energy.

A different type of Solar panels can also capture the suns thermal (heat) energy which is used for heat, hot water, and air conditioning. Often these systems contain air or hot water that is heated and stored (concentrated) in a tank or other storage facility.

For concentrating solar power (thermal) that is then used to produce electricity some of the systems are called:

Solar power tower (using heliostats focused on a central tower)
Solar parabolic trough collector
Solar fresnel lens (using flat mirrors and similar to parabolic trough)
Solar parabolic dish collector (with a stirling engine)
Solar chimney (also sometimes called a solar tower)
Solar pond

Where Can I Buy A Dc/Ac Solar Cell Inverter With An Input Of 45 V To 110 V Output?

you need a battery and a charge controller. the better charge controllers have switching type DC-DC converters to get the max energy out of the array and into the battery.

Then use a standard inverter to generate the 110-120 VAC.

Answer These Questions About Light?
What Is This Type Of Radiation? (Is It Electromagnetic?) How Can It Be Used? Use Diagrams To Help Explain Uses (Links To Websights?) How Can This Type Of Radiation Be Used For Communication? What Are Limitations Of It? Advantages? Is There Any Danger In Using It?

Light is a form of ElectroMagnetic (EM) radiation. It is composed of visible light for colors, InfraRed light for heating, and Ultraviolet light (high energy). UV is needed for photosynthesis of plants.

It can be used to see things, heat things (solar water, IR cooking lamps, and UV curing lights).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lasers

The limitation is that it cannot go thru objects (typically) and solar energy requires a large area to collect it.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_energy
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_panels

Light is used for many things and most recently for solar energy to reduce our carbon emissions in global climate changes. It is a free, clean, and green renewable energy source;

Fossil Fuels Vs Renewable Energy?
What Are The Actual Arguments For Both?

Fossil fuels have a lot of infrastructure in place.
They are extremely cheap to extract and use - most costs are not paid by the manufacturer/distributors but show up in public health and municipal cleanup budgets.
Fossil fuels provide better range in mobile applications than other known forms of storage.

Prices for renewables, especially solar photovoltaic, are dropping rapidly and are already competitive in many areas.
Price and performance of battery storage is also improving rapidly.
It is far easier to deliver useful amounts of energy to areas with no pre-existing grid with local/household level renewables than with centralized powerplants. The distributed/localized applications also bypass the huge costs and delays imposed by corrupt governments on new fossil fuel plants, dams, and distribution grids.
Integrating distributed sources requires a smarter grid, but that becomes a much more efficient and reliable distribution system with far more reliable power from local sources.

A tiny example - I live approximately one mile from the nearest available grid power. My solar system cost under $3000 for enough power to run my homestead. That's less than 1/10 the cost of getting grid power to the place from the grid and my power is more reliable than the local grid. Nearest neighbors on the grid have had power outages lasting over 2 days from 3 storms this year, nearest town had one week without power from a storm that didn't affect me more than the nuisance of walking through a foot of snow and remembering to brush the snow off the solar panels in the morning.
