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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many homeowners discover that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly reduce or even eliminate your electrical costs

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce free 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 lower your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of money.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, property electricity prices have actually increased by an average of three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're a service or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your expenses.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Multiple studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for properties geared up 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 a key part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 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. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical residential solar panel system will get rid of 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are essential components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that select to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

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

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy business are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Can You Get Energy At Night From Solar Panels?
Is It Possible To Store Energy From Solar Panels For Night?

There are a number of ways to produce small amounts of energy at night from solar panels. Here is an example of one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roLWoFIjk...

Electricity is more difficult to store. Putting electricity on the daytime grid and taking power away later is more like a banking system than storage but the results can be the same. If everyone were using solar energy power lines would have to wrap the globe to keep the power flowing.

Electricity can be shifted to other energy trapping means which are later used to produce electricity. Pumping water behind a dam, chemical bonds in batteries, pressure in a compressed air energy storage system, flywheels, and splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen are all methods that have been used to store energy to later produce electricity. Only ultra capacitors store electricity directly as a charge. Of these batteries are the most energy dense and efficient method but they are heavy and expensive.

Energy can also be stored as heat. Thermal solar panels are many times more efficient at collecting the sun's energy than photovoltaic panels. The heat energy is stored in a thermal mass like water, concrete or stones. Phase change materials can store much higher amounts of heat that is locked into a change of phase from solid to liquid or liquid to gas. It is possible to use stored heat to produce electricity. This is what power plants do. But thermal solar panels would have to b used to run a stirling engine. This has already been done with parabolic dish solar collectors with commercial success.

A solar chimney stores its own heat at night which is extracted with wind turbines: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCGVTYtJE...

first of all you can use solar energy without a battery second it should be investigated as a complimentary alternative energy.

In A Solar Energy Set Up With Battery Energy Storage, How Many Batteries Does It Take To Run A 2200 Sf House?

Peter is correct regarding energy use. To get your answer you would need a professional energy audit from a small wind & solar contractor. It's most likely that contractor will recommend significant energy efficiency upgrades for your home as with most homes it's far cheaper to upgrade to high efficiency appliances than it is to install additional energy storage capacity.

How Does Solar Energy Work?
And Why Don'T We Use It More?

Solar energy is the sun energy that come straightly on our panels charge them. And then we get light for our daily use.

Please Help! I Have Tons Of Homework Just Because I Missed One Day Of School ≫.≪ I Have More Important Hw To Take Care Of, So Can You Please Help Me? 1) What Percent Of The Sun'S Energy Is Absorbed By The Atmosphere And Never Reaches The Earth At All? 2) What Percent Of The Sun'S Energy Reaches Earth Surface And Is Not Reflected Back Into Space? 3) When Radiation From The Sun Reaches The Earth, What Is The First Thing It Hits? 4) Of All The Energy We Get From The Sun, How Much Is Reflected Back Into Space? 5) Think About It: If A Surface Does Not Reflect Energy, Then It Absorbs The Energy Or Transmits It. What Kind Of Surface On Earth Tends To Mostly Absorb Energy? 6) What Two Parts Of The Earth Do The Most Reflecting Of The Sun'S Energy? 7) Some Of The Energy Gets All The Way Down To Ground. What Happens To Most Of The Energy There On Earth'S Surface, And How Does It Affect The Surface? 8) Next, What Does The Warm Surface Do? 9) Describe The Energy Coming Off Of The Warm Surface. What Is Different About It? 10) For The Earth'S Heat Budget To Be Balanced, What Has To Be True?

1)Of the sun's energy that reaches Earth's atmosphere, 30
percent is reflected back into outer space, 47 percent is
absorbed by Earth's surface and converted into heat energy,
23 percent drives the hydrological (water) cycle, less
than one percent creates winds and ocean currents, and
only 0.03 percent is captured by plants and used in photosynthesis.
The 0.03 percent of the sun's energy captured
by plants provides all the world's food energy and produced
the stored fossil fuel energy (coal, oil, natural gas).
Thus, the sun is the primary source of all energy on Earth.
