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 everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, numerous home owners discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity rates have gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you better projection and handle your expenses.

Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes equipped with solar 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 element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost variations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist 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 country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate three to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to operate properly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of house owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy companies are well-known for their changing and unreliable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Should We Slowly Phase Out Oil And Other Fossil Fuels In Favor Of Renewable Energy Like Solar Power?

We should not phase out any type of viable energy source. All sources of energy, even renewable energy sources, have benefits and problems associated with them.

America needs a leader with the courage to establish a realistic, diversified energy plan that does not rely on a single type of energy from a single region of the country or the world. While short term economic conditions have both exacerbated and contributed to the cost of oil, this is not the first time oil prices have exceeded $100/barrel when prices are adjusted for inflation. However, the last time prices were above $100/barrel in 1979, we lacked the disciplined leadership to pursue long-term alternative energy sources in earnest. As a culture, we have become addicted to instant gratification, and are quick to abandon what is not easy or popular.

Private industry now has the economic incentive to develop a broad basis of energy technologies, and our next President will have the political capital to pass meaningful legislation authorizing the development of emerging energy sources as well as the renewed use of established sources. While Big Oil is currently Public Enemy #1, if we abandon any energy source entirely, we may look back 20 years from now and regret it. Imagine the day when people are complaining that Wind companies are earning excessive amounts of money. It may sound ridiculous now, but to think it is impossible is just as ignorant a stance to maintain as those who still propose that more oil supplies are the answer to our energy problems.

Do You Think A Power Plant Would Be The Best Energy Resource For Your Town?
Why?

I live in western Arizona...less than five miles from the California border. On most days we get wind and sun. On days when we get less sun we generally get more wind. On the few days when the wind doesn't blow hard enough to turn a wind generator we get more sunshine than almost anywhere else on the planet. As we speak we have full sunshine and winds blowing at close to 25 knots. There ar almost zero full days when we don't get enough wind or sun or a combination to run this entire town of 50,000. In a few years we'll have paid off our new sewer system. At that point there's a 'plan' to plan to electrify our city with solar and wind. Using heated water and/or compressed air along with a natural gas setup we could have a 24 hour, fully citizen owned power source up and running in a year. That, along with individual solar arrays on homes and commercial buildings we can begin the long haul toward shutting down coal burning power plants and put an end to year by year power costs. Basically the entire southwest could be fully powered by solar and wind 85% of the time. The midwest has mostly wind and considerable sun, the Southeast more sun than wind and the east coast, as Germany is currently doing could take advantage of sun and wind as well. Every kilowatt generated by wind or solar means a kilowatt not generated by coal. Since we're all going to have to do this sooner than later it's time to begin to phase out the coal industry to the greatest extent possible. After that oil is the next thing that requires some significant changes no matter what the oil mafia has to say on the subject. The nay sayers will dump on this, but they dumped on the steamboat, the iron horse, the Tin Lizzy and claimed that man would never fly. Being wrong on this issue isn't much different.

What Is The Solar Energy And The New Generation?
What Is The Solar Energy And The New Generation?

Currently, countries around the world are experiencing major developments in technology and civilization ever since electricity was discovered. Year after year people make use of the world’s energy sources to make the lives of others more convenient and safer. Now the world has reached a point where negative environmental changes are taking place and probably decades after, lack of resources available. Fortunately, there are several energy alternatives available each with advantages and disadvantages with solar energy being one of the more popular choices. But there aren’t many people hooked on to the technology which is why solar training is very important.

Solar energy was realized as a clean alternative source of energy way back in ancient times and then later on solar power plants were installed in several areas to give clean power to homes. While it is a clean energy source, it definitely isn’t the cheapest and that discouraged people from embracing the technology. Then when digital mobile technology started to get popular, solar energy was revisited as more and more people started to purchase these gadgets. The focus was on how often people use electricity to charge their batteries for their mobile devices and now people are trying to find ways for solar energy to charge those devices instead.

Nuclear Energy?
Is Nuclear Energy Renewable Or Nonrenewable. And Why?

Renewable energy is defined as energy production that does not consume natural resources in order to produce energy. Examples are solar, wind and tidal power.

Non-renewable energy is conversely defined as energy production that consumes resources. Examples are coal and natural gas.

The answer to this one is simple: nuclear energy requires the consumption of nuclear fuel. Nuclear fuel is a resource. Therefore nuclear energy is non-renewable energy.

Possibilities With Solar Energies?
Imagine Designing A New Building. What New Technologies And Efficiencies Should Be Included In Making The Building? Given That Green Tech Can Be Expensive, How Can You A ( A Rich Ceo Of The Company) Afford To Incorporate These Changes In Future Planning?

Yeah a lot of this is already happening because when you look at a building like a skyscraper, its going to be there a long time. For example the Empire State Building is about 80 years old. Now think of a new skyscraper being built today. All the little bits of energy saved over a period of 80 to 100 years it is really a massive amount of money for a 100 story building.
