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.

Solar Benefits

Solar power makes it possible for house owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, residential electricity prices have gone up by approximately 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a company or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your costs.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

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

Frequently Asked Questions

I Need Help With Solar Panels?
Hi Today I Was Using My Bb Gun And Shot My Dads Solar Panel. I Want To Fix It For Him Because He Spent A Lot Of Time Trying To Get The Solar Panels. All I Broke Was The Glass On The Front, What Is The Glass And Where Can I Buy New Glass For It?

Is it a solar water heater (with water running through it) or a solar electric panel (makes electricity)? If it is a solar water heater, you can buy tempered glass from a local glass dealer. If it is solar electric, it is probably cheaper to buy a new panel than trying to repair it. Read the label on the back of the panel to determine what model it is. If it is less than 140 watts, you may be able to have one shipped to you. If it is bigger than that, it will be expensive to ship just one panel, as it has to go by truck, you may be able to find a local place that sells them.

Where To Find Used Solar Panels?

Used solar panels can be effective, provided they are in good condition. Make sure to test them for effectiveness before paying though, so you don't get ripped off.

What Is Solar Energy Used For?
Give A List Of How Solar Energy Is Used In Daily Life.

Solar energy is used by plants to generate oxygen and food sugars, without which all animal life will die. Solar energy is used by the human body in the production of Vitamin D and seratonin, both essential for body construction and mood elevation.

Aside from that, solar energy may be captured by mirrors to generate heat, even enough in a solar furnace to melt metals. It can also be focused on silicon panels to generate direct current electricity that may be stored or converted into alternating current electricity. Solar energy can also be captured by plant life, then combusted to generate steam for electricity or burned in vehicles from the methane or hydrogen produced from treatment of the plant materials.

How Much Co2 Is Produced When Solar Panels Are Manufactured?
I Know I'Ve Read This In An Article Somewhere, But I Can'T For The Life Of Me Find It Again... When A New Solar Panel Is Manufactured, The Materials Must First Be Mined, Refined, Assembled Into Components, Transported To A Factory, And Combined To Make The Final Product. This All Requires Energy, The Vast Majority Of Which Comes From Fossil Fuels. How Much Co2 (On Average) Does This Process Release Into The Atmosphere? My Real Interest Is In How Much Co2 Would Be Released If The The U.S. Replaced All Non-Transportation Energy Supplies With Solar Power Simultaneously, But The Answer To My First Question Is A Good Start.

From here http://www.nrel.gov/docs/fy04osti/35489.... I get that 1 kW of panels needs 4000 - 6000 kWh of energy for its manufacture and distribution. The article suggests an energy payback time of 1-4 years, but the article is old, and contemporary panels are more efficient in their use of materials.

The equivalent in CO2 depends where that energy came from in the first place. If it was from a nuclear or hydroelectric plant, then the CO2 is nil. If it was from a coal-burning plant, figure 1.5 lbs. of CO2 per kWh

Philippines: Companies Which Install Solar Panels For Homes?
How Much Does It Cost? Is It Reliable? If You Also Have Their Address And Phone Number, Please Include. Thank You Very Much :)

Most of the listings on the Net were in the years 2007 and 2008, and so far I found only this Solar Electric Co (SOLARCO) 724 48 12, run by a certain Mr.Puckett.

You might also try the Green Architecture Movement, United Architects of the Philippines, at 53 Scout Rallos, QC 4126364, 3721796, for better info.

Costs may have come down from P70 thou and P60thou that they mentioned in 2007, but I am not sure.

Solar panel manufacturing could still be in the infancy stage, although big players like the Lopez Group and Shell Philippines are already in the field. Home use involves the solar panel plus battery plus inverters, although someone suggests to change some home wiring to 12V rather than go for inverters. There were also suggestions that China made appliances like airconditioning and refrigerators are available, running on solar power.
