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 air conditioner, washing clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. 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, lots of home owners discover that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically decrease and even remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's entire 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 Make a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity expense cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy rates have actually increased by approximately three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or house owner with ever-changing money flow, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your property worth

Numerous studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common property photovoltaic panel system will remove three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that select to run properly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of customer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing business results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many house owners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

Since 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 infamous for their changing and undependable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate how much electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can I Build A Solar Panel?
I Really Need To Know How Because Im Building A Solar Powered Car For Science Fair :] Thank You!

Hehe, if you want to build your own solar panel that looks like what you see on buildings, etc, you will probably need to be a multi-millionaire. Here is a quote from the first link in my sources list:

"The high-efficiency solar cells you can buy at Radio Shack and other stores are made from highly processed silicon, and require huge factories, high temperatures, vacuum equipment, and lots of money."

But fortunately for you, there is a cheap way to make a solar panel yourself (see first link). I love the scitoys website, but I am not quite familiar with this particular experiment. It looks like a science fair project in itself! It also doesn't appear to put out nearly enough power to run even a small solar car.

What I would recommend is buying a compact solar panel from Radio Shack or some other electronics store that you may know of.

Type in "solar" in to the Radio Shack search box. The first item on the list may be useful to you (the solar panel & battery combo). I am just guessing, though, since I don't know any of your requirements (voltage output, power output, size, etc). Also, buyer beware. This particular product has a pretty bad customer review... but then again, I find that people are more inclined to leave a bad review than a good one.

Good luck...

How Are Solar Panels Tested And Rated?

They can be tested and certified by any NRTL (nationally recognized testing laboratory) like UL, CSA, ETL, TUV etc and all solar panels are rated in Watts. The watt rating is how much power (amps times volts) the panel will produce in full sunlight at 25 degrees C (77F). This is the industry standard (STC) for all PV panel ratings

Question About Solar Panels?
I Was Wondering Why Solar Panel Manufacturers Don'T Make Spherical Or Dome Shaped Solar &Quot;Panels&Quot; Rather Then Flat Panels? You Could Put These On Poles, Or Something Of The Sort, And They Could Collect Rays From All Angles. Is There Some Technical Issues That Are Keeping Them From Designing Such A Solar &Quot;Panel?&Quot;

Modern solar panels are much more effficient than a previous poster believes - they are up to over 50% efficiency for good ones.

Solar panel production is inherently a planar process since it is essentially the smae technolgy as used to make silcon chips on a larger scale. As previously noted, there are also efficiency benefits of having flat sheets correctly orientated at the light source, and although obviously that does not apply in the case of static installations you can get good results in practice with panels on the flat or near flat so that they re never in shadow. With complex shapes one part of the panel is inevitably going to be casting a shadow on another part.

How Do Solar Panels Work?
Can Someone Give Me A Quick Explanation On How Solar Panels Work? Just An Explanation So I Can Understand But Not Get Confused With The Details. Thanks :D

The sun emits light in the form of photons.

When photons hit the solar cells they may be converted to electrons.

When a load (eg a lamp or motor) is connected, these electons move along the wire.

The movement of electrons is called electricity.

Hillary Is Going To Give Us Clean Coal & Solar Energy Just Like Carter Gave Us The Synfuel Failure. Right?

Actually, it was Reagan who eliminated funding for research into alternative energy. Many of the advances in solar and wind technology happened from this small burst of funding during the Carter administration, but then development stalled as taxpayer money was shifted into providing subsidies for oil and coal.

Reagan even went so far as to remove solar panels that had already been installed on the roof of the White House.
