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 daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners find that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly reduce or even remove your electric costs

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of money.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy costs have increased by approximately three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Multiple studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

Progressively, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to operate properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility business are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate just how much electrical power will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

The Posive And Negative Affects Of Cfl Light Bulbs?
See Following Articles For Reference: Http://Www.Slate.Com/Id/2183699 I Would Like Those Who Answer To Provide New Ideas Not Mentioned In The Artile Above.

pow

Let me start off by saying we (my family and I) live 100% off of the grid and are completely self-sufficient with a 0% Carbon footprint. I believe this is the first step anyone can make “help the environment”. Once you convert your own life style to a greener more eco friendly route, you can start helping others.


Compact fluorescent light bulbs, right now, are more " eco-wise" then anything else most consumers can get a hold of (ie. incandescent) and currently save over 2000 times their own weight in greenhouse gases.

But since my house is completely on solar / wind and we REALLY need to watch usage, every light is fitted with screw type (typical 110v lamp socket style) LED bulbs. They emit the same luminosity (typically 45) but at only 1watt rather then a 45w compact or 10w CFL. However they usually cost twice as much as CFLs which is twice as much (or more) as compacts. Still LEDs would be the way to go by far.

As for the second part of your question...

Mercury IS the lesser of the evils, without getting toooo elaborate discussing specifics (ie. which burns ozone faster, other layer's besides ozone, disposing locations, methods, wind conditions, etc), one needs less mercury gas then most others, to obtain the same luminosity in a vacuum because of mercury's longer agitated spectral wavelength. Mercury's wavelength is more blue which is a longer more "luminous" or brighter light to say sodium, which is a more light orange or shorter less bright (red being the shortest) wavelength. so you'd need more sodium or other, in the tube or more electricity to the tube, to create the same luminosity as mercury.

so mercury wins out only because the sheer volume needed is less then the others.

Hope this helped, feel free to contact me personally if you have any questions if you’d like assistance in making your first self sufficient steps, I’m willing to walk you step by step threw the process. I’ve written several how-to DIY guides available at www agua-luna com on the subject. I also offer online and on-site workshops, seminars and internships to help others help the environment.

Why Do Republicans Want Americans To Do Arab Oil Dependent?
Against Alt Fuels, Elec Cars, Carters Solar Panel Tax Credit, Coal And Oil Regulations

We'd freaking love alternatives, if they were cost competitive.

Unfortunately, they aren't. All alternative energies require gov't subsidies to make them cost competitive.

You think the coal and oil industries aren't regulated? Not true. They are heavily regulated.

Why do Democrats oppose any attempt to expand our own domestic oil supply?

How Do You Heat Your Home With Solar Panels?
I Use Forced Air To Heat My Home. I Will Need To Replace My Furnace In A Couple Of Years, Possibly Less. I'm Interested In Solar Energy For All Kinds Of Reasons. It Looks Like A Great Solution For Light And Electric Appliances, But How Can It Be Used To Heat A Home? More To The Point, If I Were To Put Solar Panels On My Roof, Would I Still Need To Purchase A New Gas-Burning Furnace, Or Is There Something Else I Should Factor Into A Solar Electric System That Could Heat My House Using Forced Air, In Place Of The Furnace?

Different type of panels needed. It would require many more panels than have room for to heat with solar electric. To heat your home the collectors have some kind of fluid circulating to absorb heat. The fluid is stored in a large insulated tank so that you can have heat as you need it.
I would suggest using the solar heat to supplement your conventional heat source. Never know if it will be cloudy for several days.

How Many Solar Panels Would I Need To Run Every Thing In Small House?

Hey Larry,
I was just looking at a site that was reviewing 3 books on DIY solar panels and other energy products. It looked pretty interesting and seemed like it would have a lot of good information. Maybe you can get your answers there. They were also offering a free 7 day e-course (which I subscribed to) on energy savings.

Do Solar Panels Effect Birds And/Or Other Animals?
I Have Noticed How Solar Panels Cause A Glare. Since I Am Not Around Solar Panels All The Time I Relate It To When The Sun Reflects Off Another Car And Right Into My Eyes. So I Always Wonder If Solar Panels Effect Birds And/Or Animals Due To The Glare. If I Am Wrong And Solar Panels Aren't This Bad Please Tell Me.

Yes, they do. Solar panels are equipped with a defense mechanism that allows the solar panel to retalliate against birds who defecate on them. They have a touch screen panel that is installed on the surface of the panel and when a turd bombards its surface, the solar panel can then engages its defenses and can retalliate in several ways. Different manufacturers use different means of protection from turd bombs. Some prefer using iodine gas or chlorine gas, both powerful nerve agents used in WWI. However, other Manufacturers use a more direct approach, and install small versions of Boron and Neutron bombs that are powered by miniature Pulse Jets or Scram jets which propel the bomb towards the bird while an electronic tracking system monitors the birds position and velocity, directing the projectile at the doomed bird at speeds reaching mach 2.5 +or- 420 mph. Both means are very effective but can cause damage to surrounding buildings and animals and civilians. A new concept that follows the age old "eye for an eye" ideology is in development at Delphi Rocketry Munitions LLC. This defense neither uses harsh chemicals nor radiation as its defense but instead uses a caustic concoction and simply dishes out what it was served. A small 4.35 ounce canister is attached to the solar panel's defensive rocket system. The projectile's canister is filled with egg yolks, dog feces, Tabasco Sauce, Fermented Hollandaise sauce, rock salt, shards of glass, lemon juice, and a defeathering agent made from the abdomens of Guinea fowl. This mixture is first mixed at the factory and allowed to sit. This gives the mixture;s ingredients time to mingle and ferment. After 3.125 days, the canisters are filled and they are then attached to the rockets which are then shipped to the customers who then attach the rockets to the Solar panels side where the rockets are primed and the triggering wires are connected to the solar panels computer, making the panel ready to be poo'ed upon. As stated above, this method is still in testing but proves to be much more effective and SAFE and could possible save the bird's life, instead of blasting it into a red cloud of feathers. To me, this method seems much more humane. I as well as other developers feel that some birds other than the mocking bird or finch deserve a second chance. I hope this helps. -LP
