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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous home owners discover that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly lower or perhaps eliminate your electrical bills

Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred 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 investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy costs have increased by an average of three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with rising and falling money flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your home value

Multiple studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes 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 component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included 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 country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical property solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to operate responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing company results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of house owners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- 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 Financial investment

The utility companies are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate just how much electricity will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Is Solar Energy Harnessed (Collected) ?

You can read about solar energy and how it is created and used here:

Which Energy Sources Will Still Be Available When You Are 70?

Solar, geo-thermal, wind, hydro, various fossil fuels, nuclear (fission and hopefully fusion by then), bio-waste fuels.

How Many Solar Panels Do I Need To Run A Pump?
I Plan To Buy Solar Panels Of The Following Configuration: Sun Force 39110 / 123 Watt - 7 Amps To Run Through An Inverter, To Produce The 110V I Need To Run The Pump During The Day. The Pump Is 110V / 7.5 Amps / 0.5 Hp My Question Is, How Many Solar Panels Would I Need To Run The Pump?

Are you sure you want those panels? It would probably be more cost-effective to get higher-wattage panels. From those specs, it sounds like you need about 800 watts of panels. That's 4 200-watt panels.

I would skip the inverter, and look for a pump that runs off DC. In fact, many AC motors will run off DC, although that's a trial-and-error sort of thing that no one will guarantee. Typically you would lower the voltage input to do so, so a 110-volt AC induction motor would run off maybe 70-80 volts DC, to avoid burning out the motor. But if you get a pump rated for DC, then you'll certainly have something that works right.

What Is A Distributed Resource?
What Is A Distributed Resource (In Terms Of The Environment) Vs A Point Source? I Know Biomass Is A Distributed Resource But What Is The Definition Of &Quot;Distributed Resource&Quot;?

Distributed resource would be an energy source that can be harnessed (effectively) in almost all corners of the world, and doesn't need special conditions to be cost-effective (for instance solar energy is only costs effective in areas with plenty of sun, wind energy in areas with plenty of wind, etc, while biomass, in its many forms, can be successfully harnessed in almost all parts of the world.

What Do You Think Of The Northern Cape?
What'S Your View Of The Northern Cape, With Regards To It'S People It'S Culture, And It'S Three Big Towns\Cities Kimberley,Kuruman And Upington Which Have More That Half The Northern Cape 'S Population And What Do You Think Is The Province'S Future And It'S Future Role In South Africa

I live in the Northern Cape, though not in any of the "big 3" cities.

Its anything but hot & dusty now - in fact it has been raining at least twice a week for months!

It will always have a low population.

Agriculture is the driver of the economy while mining is slowly becoming less significant as the mines close down when they are "mined out". I think it could become a major contributor to renewable energy in future - wind farms and solar energy - perhaps nuclear along the coast.

Karoo villages are becoming quite popular as "getaway" destinations for city folks from particularly the Western Cape - old cottages sell for high prices to these "city refugees".
