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.

"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.

Thanks to substantial electrical power bill savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, property electricity prices have actually increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a business or property owner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar likewise assists you better projection and manage your expenditures.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation.

Many homeowners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Type Of Solar System Would I Need To Run Three Window Air Conditioners?
I Have Three 5200 Btu Air Conditioners That I Would Like To Run Strictly On Solar Power. Here Are The Specs For The Air Conditioners Which Are All The Same. Cooling Amps: 4.5; Cooling Wattage 475; Killowatt Hours Per Year 356; 110/120 Volts Remember To Multiply These Numbers By 3 Because I Have Three Running At Once For About 8 Hours Per Day, 2 Months Out Of The Year.

Hey Michael, I see you are still at it! Good for you!

The system you seek will cost you more than you will ever recover in savings by not paying for the juice. There was a company that Oboma crammed our trust into called Solyndra. Take a peak at the wiki link below and you will see some of the complications and troubles with solar panels. Nothing is free and solar panels have multiple sucking holes for your pocket book.

Every time energy is converted there is a severe loss. Here is a list of those transfer conversions:
Thought to reality being the greatest of all!
Light collection.
Light to electric.
Electric collection.
Direct current to alternating current, with cu rent regulation control.

Each air conditioner should have its own un-interuptable power supply (UPS). Each supply should be rated to handle twice what its air conditioner requires, otherwise it will not last. Give each UPS its own solar panel to refill its batteries in 4 hours. Keep a technician on retainer to keep it all clean and running.
Now you can see why a lot of people have not grabbed this brass ring. Those that do, bleed green

How Do Solar Powered Calculators Work?
Also ,When Was It Discoved, By Who. Etc? Can You Help Me Also, Im Doing A Science Fair Project, And I Need Help On What To Put On My Poster, Can You Tell Me What To Put On My Poster My Topic Is &Quot;How Do Solar Powered Calculators Work?&Quot;

Inside a a solar panel there are silicon atoms. When sunlight hits these atoms electrons are freed and can flow out of the panel. These electrons are used to power the calculator.

Sorry this is all i know, try wikipedia for the other information

What Is The Most Viable Method For Using Renewable Energy?
What Is The Most Viable Method For Using Renewable Energy Resources To Totally Replace The Dependence On Fossil Fuels Is Using A Combination Of Wind And Solar Powers?

Solar is where the government is pouring the money into. It's more viable than wind simply because it's much less intrusive, not noisy and doesn't cause a disruption to the wildlife. Solar blends in.

Solar Panel Roofing?
I Need A New Roof Soon And I Was Wondering What The Difference In Cost Would Be From A Standard Shingle Roof To A Roof Including Solar Panels. Does Anyone Know The Cost Difference?

The solar panels are very expensive to provide much power. If u go that way do not skimp on the support as a high wind will blow them away. In Ecuador I put in a remote site for communications. It was working good when a Strong wind blew $10.000 worth of solar panels all over the jungle.
