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 property owner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous homeowners discover that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce or perhaps remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big part of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of money.

#2 Earn a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past ten years, property electrical energy costs have gone up by approximately three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or house owner with changing money circulation, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your expenses.

#4 Boost your home value

Several research studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a fantastic method 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 normal property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that pick to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer getting choices, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar 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 energy business are infamous for their varying and undependable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can determine how much electrical power will be created, and most notably, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Question About Solar Energy Plant?
So I Wondering How Large (Acres, Meters, Miles, Yards, Sq Ft) A Solar Energy Plant Has To Be In Order To Supply Enough Energy To A Small City And A Little Extra To Transport To Another City? And How Much Should One Charge ($) For This Clean Renewable Energy?

Depends upon the city but you have to understand solar power like wind power is an intermittent power source and without a battery backup you cannot directly power anything!

Solar power is best suited for power needs off-the-grid where homes can be powered with 12 volt DC systems and back up batteries. Once you go to normal household Ac voltage 110 or 220 you have to put the power through a inverter which can rob up to 20% of your power. Using standard solar panel's it adds up to allot of panels!

As for cost solar power with one exception usually pencils out for around $2.35 per Kilowatt Hour. "To put it into proportion your average for a current domestic energy source is around 18 Cents per kilowatt hour.

Their is one exception to the standard panels and that is the reflected energy systems such are used at Kramer Junction in the California desert. These systems use reflected light to heat outlying to a gas turning turbines. At night they turn on their natural gas turbines to provide continuous power. The power from these systems produces energy for around 18 cents. and one plant around 200 acers would have no problem providing power for over 1,000 homes

Why Is Energy So Important To Living Organisms?

The difference between an inanimate object and a living one is that one must have an energy source to replicate.

In order to replicate, they need a food source to create that exhange of energy to transform molecules into cells and exhaust the molecules as waist that do not.

They do this until the DNA (blue print of life), is encoded to die. DNA are proteins and enzymes which are found in meteorites. Life began in this gravity well in space because we have the solar energy and H2O which has the most viscosity in space with the widest temperature range to transport molecules.

You and I are cell making machines. Our cells need the proper nutritional tools to slow down the aging process because we are bombarded by cancer causing free radicals in our environment all the time.

We are vibrational energy. In affect, we are energy itself.

The inanimate object is also vibrational energy, but it does not replicate itself, it recycles itself. Like the life cycle of rocks, which they teach in geology class.

Wind And Solar Energy?
After Getting A Solar Cell And Wind Generator And Everything, Is There Any Way To Store All The Energy Into Some Kind Of Box And Use It Like A Battery?

First, Tony's answer is wrong, he did the math backwards. It is .015 acre per home, not 66 acres.

There are different ways to use solar and wind. You can use grid-tied systems that don't use batteries. They use what they make when they make it, and buy any extra they need from the grid. If they make more than they use, they sell the extra to the grid. Sweet, simple solution. 80% of solar installations in the US are done like this.

Another option is off-grid, where you make all of the power you use. In this case, you do need batteries to store the power made during the day or on windy days/nights to use later. A charge controller is used to manage putting the power into the batteries without over charging and damaging them. An inverter is used to convert the DC power from the batteries to AC power for the house.

When batteries reach the end of their life, they are 100% recycled, so there is no waste.

How To Be Energy Efficient E.G Solar Panel?
Im Almost 15 And Live In My Own Bedroom I Want To Make It More Energy Efficient Because I Have Quite A Bit Of Electric Stuff In It E.G Ps2, Tv, Sky Box, Tropical Fish Tank, And They All Take A Bit Of Energy Up Any Ideas. Hope Fully Cheap Ones Lol Because I Was Saving Up For Car Insurance But I Have So I Have Spare Money Now. Thanks

You could try special energy saving lightbulds, they take a bit of time to light up but save a lot of energy. You could also make sure that you don't leave any of your things on standby but turn it off completely after use. I don't think you can really do anything about the fish tank as they need heat.

Questions About Energy Crisis...?
I Know Virtually Nothing About This So I'M Going To Post A Scenario With Questions, And If You Can Either Answer Them In Your Opinion Or Give Me Information To Answer Them, I'D Be Extremely Grateful! Ten Points To Best Answer. You Are An Enviormental Activist. Your Task Is To Propose The Best Solution To The Following: We Need Electricity. You Must Consider Cost, Sensibility, And Feasibility. You Have Numerous Choices. However, Natural Gas, Nuclear, Or Coal Fires Facilities Are Readily Available. You Decide. The Greenhouse Effect? Is That Important? How Do We Avoid It'S Affects! Oh Come On Now.... Run Out Of Fuel? Alternatives. Include Enthalpy, And Other Thermodynamic Principles. Best Choices!

I think that we should turn to solar energy. Here is my explanation:
Solar power has plenty of advantages over other types of energy. It has viable applications, from the smallest home solar power systems to large, centralized power plants. Solar power is also very diverse. It's used to charge your cell phone or laptop, power cell phone towers, and provide electricity to your home and the entire electric grid. It can be used in a field, on a rooftop, as home siding and in outer space to power satellites and space stations - not to mention heat and cool home water supplies and living spaces.

Solar power's most obvious and hyped advantage is its cleanliness. While nonrenewable energy sources like coal, oil and gas are contributing to global climate change and poor air quality, solar power represents a clean, renewable solution to those problems. Solar power is also beneficial to both developed and developing countries, allowing access to clean electricity and clean water for poor and rural residents around the world.

In relation to other renewable resources, such as wind, geothermal, tidal energy and arguably, nuclear power, solar power is the most scalable for small-power generation. While geothermal power can be used to heat and cool the home, solar power can do that and more, providing hot water, HVAC and electricity. Wind power is a very beneficial energy source but is still difficult to use in an urban environment due to the size of wind turbines. Other renewable energy sources simply do not apply to home energy production.

How I think that we should avoid the Greenhouse Effect:
Car pool or find another way to travel in order to preserve the earth's natural resources.

2.Reuse house hold items. That way our land fills don't fill so quickly.

3.Compost your left over friut and vegetable parts. It can give you rich soil and also reduces the amount that goes into the landfills.

4.Don't sit around the house waisting electricity when you can be outdoors and playing in the sun.

5. Recycle your paper, beverage containers, milk jugs, and tin cans so that they can be used to make new material and so that we don't waiste natural resources.

I hope this helped :)
