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 daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, many residents discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably decrease and even eliminate your electrical costs

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past ten years, domestic electrical power prices have gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect versus unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Multiple research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

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

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are very important parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to operate properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and enhancing company results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of homeowners pick to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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 companies are well-known for their changing and unreliable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple math, we can compute just how much electrical power will be created, and most notably, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Any Thoughts? Thanks ... Julie P.S. :: The Car Will Be Racing On A Slick Tile Surface Under A Set Of Constant Lights. The Setting Will Be Controlled.

My advice is to look into building your own fuel cell to boost your cars performance. These could definitely add a little more needed power to your car. Research it a little. Some require very little to get some extra power out of things.

Or you could always try and increase the solar cell's power output by adding a magnifying glass or two (a big magnifying sheet mounted a few inches above it might give you an extra little boost.)

How Is Solar Power Energy Created?

"Energy cannot be created or destroyed, only changed in form." I forgot who said that (maybe Newton). Einstein stated that the energy created equals the mass destroyed times the square of the velocity of light (E=mc^2). The sun "creates" energy by "destroying" mass (in this view mass is considered to be "frozen energy").

Getting Power From A Solar Panel Made Easy?
I Am Going To Be Putting A Solar Panel And I Need To Have It Run The Power To Plug Ins So I Can Plug In Some Lights And Fans. This Solar Panel Isnt Anywhere Near Any Electric Source Or House Around. So How Can I Hook The Solar Panel Up To Wires, And Then Run Them Down To A Battery Or Inverter Or Whatever I Need, To Eventually Hook To Power 4 Or 5 Plug Ins For The Lights And Fans? Please Show Me The Easiest Way Possible And If You Can Post Links To Diagrams That Would Be Great. Basically- I Need To Know How To Power Plug Ins From A Solar Panel. This Is All I Need To Know! Diagrams Please! Thank You!

By saying something like "plug-ins", it is obvious that you shouldn't be messing with electrical.

Solar Power Shingles?
Hello, I'M Doing Research On Solar Power Shingles, Not Panels, And I Am Having Trouble Finding Prices Of Shingles And Companies. I Know Uni-Solar Is Very Popular, But I Can'T Find The Price Of Their Products. I Would Also Like To Know Some Other Companies' Prices Of Shingles, You Know, For Comparison. Also, Please Give Any Sites With Info About Solar Shingles And Materials They Can Be Made Out Of. I Know They Can Be Made Out Of Silicon, But Is That Good? Will We Run Out Of Silicon If We Convert A Large Amount Of Energy Supply To Solar-Shingles? Any Info Is Welcome, Thanks! Greenday

I recently had a system installed and one of the companies I contacted quoted me shingles. I don't remember exact numbers, but they cost more than panels and were less efficient. I believe the reason given was the lack of airspace below them increased overheating and reduced production. I put a link to the company that offered the panels.

What Is Solar Energy? And How Solar Cells Work?
I Have A Project About Sloar Energy And I Couldn't Find Many Information About, So Could Any One Helps Me

The energy from the sun is about 1000W per square meter at the earth's surface. Much of this is in the visible light range of wavelengths.

Solar cells are a specialised form of semiconductor diode known as a photovoltaic cell. They generate about 0.5 volts DC under working conditions, and the current depends on how bright the sun is and the efficiency and area of the cell. Many cells are connected together to form a solar panel. There are usually 36 cells for a panel to charge 12V batteries.

The photons from the sunlight enter the semiconductor material and increase the energy within the atomic structure. This causes electrons to be released. They flow from the semiconductor round through the external circuit and back into the semiconductor, to fill the "holes" left by the electrons.

There is plenty of information, too much is more like the issue. Maybe you used the wrong keywords to search.
