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 house owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of homeowners discover that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or perhaps remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big portion of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power prices have increased by an average of three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with rising and falling money circulation, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your expenses.

#4 Boost your residential or commercial property worth

Several research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs 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 expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

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

Sustainability and business social obligation are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that opt to run responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer getting choices, creating goodwill and improving service results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Government Grants For Solar Panels? A Couple Questions...?
1. Are There Grants? 2. Who Are They From Fed, State, Power Companies? 3. How Much Are They? Do They Just Pay A Percent Or An Certain Amount? 4. Do You Have To Get Certain Solar Panels That Are Certified Or That The Grant Givers Have Chosen Or What? 5. What Makes Solar Panels Certified?

Few places in the USA have outright grants, but all have the federal tax credit, and some have additional state and local incentives.

Check your area at this site:
http://dsireusa.org/

In general, it's a percentage of the price you pay. In the most favorable areas, it can be 1/2 or 2/3 of the cost of a system.

The Federal program is rather liberal. Your system must power your primary residence (or heat water for the same), and pass local building codes. Other than that, you can use whatever your jurisdiction allows. Usually, a water heater that you just made out of black plastic tubing, or a photovoltaic panel that you homebrewed out of discarded solar cells will not pass local codes.

Some states like California have lists of approved equipment for rebates:

How To Utilize Solar Energy For Homw Use?
Kindly Send Me References For The Utilization Of Solar Energy For Home Use Like To Generate Electricity, To Use It For Heating Up Water Bath Etc. I Want To Do All The Project On My Own. Your Support Will Be Highly Appreciated.

Solar energy can used in many ways. we can use this energy by putting solar panels in our houses and we can generate this energy like we have heard of things like solar geezer , solar cooker , solar lights etc. if we use solar energy in this way then we can also preserve our natural resources.
some uses for solar energy would be telling time with sun dial, cooking, pumping water, purifying water, heating water (pools), and to heat air.
Solar Energy is used mostly in places where there is a lot of sunlight. It is used in power plants in warm sunny climates, and on houses in around the same places. They are solar paneled houses which can be anywhere. Basically, solar energy can be found anywhere there is sunlight. It will work better with more sunlight though.

How Much Are Solar Panels??
Where Can I Get Them From???? I Live In La Cali If That Helps....

well...based on what answers you received you need some cash to buy them! but solar panels are made of solar cells which cost about 1$ each. solar cells can be monocrystalline and polycristalline(they are made of silicon). monocrystalline cells can perform better at lower light but are more expensive. a solar panel made of 50 cells can produce 25 volts and about 70 watts or more(each cell produce 0,5 volts) you can find solar cells cheap on ebay and they come with what you need to assemble them. you can find youtube videos that show you how to build solar panels and its verry easy! do not change your mind about using solar panels! they are efficient and you can build a 50 cell panel for about 100$ good luck there and do this. do not be afraid of failure. here is a video for you http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LNihKhhbGQ and another video to make you understand about solar cells http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Caf1JIz4X2I

How Long Do Solar Panels Last?

lose efficiency over time, 15 to 20 years which is slightly shorter than how long it takes them to pay for themselves...or until the first hailstorm.
