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 air conditioning system, cleaning clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, many home owners discover that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically minimize or even eliminate your electrical costs

Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.

#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy prices have gone up by approximately three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with rising and falling money flow, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home worth

Several studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate changes in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

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

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a terrific method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal property solar panel system will remove 3 to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are crucial parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that choose to run properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer buying decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners pick to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility companies are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Solar Panel Parts Work?
For Home Use!!! How Does A Solar Panel Work, What Parts Are Needed In A Solar Panel And What Does Each Part Do? How Would I Be Able To Store Energy So I Will Be Able To Use It At Night. How Do I Connect My Appliances To It So They Would Work?

Basically, you need three components for a basic photovoltaic (solar cell) power generating system.

You need an array of solar cells to convert sunlight directly into DC (direct current electricity). While the cost has come down over the years, they are still quite expensive in the numbers you would need.

You need a way to store the electricity produced by the solar cells since the sun doesn't shine at night. This is usually an array of batteries. The batteries are also quite expensive because you need so many for full residential power capability.

Finally, you need a device to convert DC (direct current) to AC (alternating current) which is what powers your home. This device is called an inverter. Additionally, this inverter must synchronize its output with that of the power company so that they will be in phase with each other. The inverter will also contain an isolation section to keep utility power from going back into your solar panels. It may also optionally contain a charger for the batteries when the sun isn't shining.

If you have a solar power generator, you will not notice any difference in how you use your appliances. The solar system ties into your electrical service panel. You will still plug into your homes electrical outlets as usual.

What Career Should I Choose To Work On Builiding Science And Renewable Energy?
Hi I Would Like To Work On Building Science Like Install Panel Solars,Wind And You Know Building Science Also I Want To Star A Business Sell Products Of Renewable Energy Like Solar Panels,Wind,Hydro,Etc. So Which Career Can Fit In Those Jobs? Thanks

good for you! if you like to actually work on and reinvent the renewable technological devices yourself, you should get into electrical engineering in order to understand how everything works in an electrical system and further invent ways to improve it. you always can start a business later one after you have some good working experience with the renewable energy products.

Why Are Solar Panels Grid-Like?
Solar Panels Are All Divided Into These Squares, Forming A Grid Like Pattern. Is It Possible To Have A Single Piece Of Solar Panel?

Solar cells are semiconductor devices like computer chips. Current manufacturing methods create small squares of semiconductors. Companies are researching ways to make thin film solar cells that can be "painted on" or manufactured in large, possibly flexible sheets, but so far the technology to do that is still more expensive than making little squares and then assembling them into big panels. That may change in the near future, but I can't be sure.

Solar Panels With Regard To City Ordinances?
If I Wanted To Build My Own Solar Panels, Who Would I Talk To About Getting It Tied Into The Grid Legally?

Your local power company !

Who Invented The Solar Panels?
I Would Like To Know Who Invented It Because I Am Trying To Do A Project On Environmental Science

Charles Fritts - First Solar Cell

According to Encyclopedia Britannica the first genuine solar cell was built around 1883 by Charles Fritts, who used junctions formed by coating selenium (a semiconductor) with an extremely thin layer of gold.

Russell Ohl - Silicon Solar Cell

Early solar cells, however, had energy conversion efficiencies of under one percent. In 1941, the silicon solar cell was invented by Russell Ohl.
Gerald Pearson, Calvin Fuller and Daryl Chapin - Efficient Solar Cells
In 1954, three American researchers, Gerald Pearson, Calvin Fuller and Daryl Chapin, designed a silicon solar cell capable of a six percent energy conversion efficiency with direct sunlight.
