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.

"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 everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, lots of homeowners find that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy rates have increased by approximately three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a business or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your expenses.

Several research studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell quicker 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 become more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional 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 tasks in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard 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 residential solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

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

Lots of homeowners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 companies are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Would You Pay For Electricity If You Had Solar Panels?
Im Curious. You Had Enough Solar Panels To Power Your Home. You Payed The Expenses Of The Solar Panels. Would The Electrical Company Still Ask For Money Each Month?

Yes. At night or in cloudy conditions a computer will sense drop in available electric current and the Electrical company supply makes up for the shortfall.

The solar panels are coming down in price and eventually they will pay for themselves. Maintenance is low too. Also you have the good feeling and ability to crow about being a non-polluter.
The Electrical company will only ask money for what you use when it is cloudy or at night. Some use battery storage to get around or reduce this. If you have a surplus of electricity during a very sunny day for example, the electrical company will even buy the electricity back from you if you have this set up to do so.

I Want To Buy Solar Panels?
I Am Intrested In Buying Solar Panels To Save A Buck And Even Maek Some Money Off Of It But I Was Wondering What Kind? How Much? How Many? Are They Easy To Install? Whats The Best Brand? I Want Alot Of Information On This If Anyone Can Give Me Some Help On It In A User Friendly Way It Would Be Appreciated!

If buying solar panels could save a bunch of money we would all be doing it. Unfortunately it will take many years for you to save enough in electricity costs to pay for the panels.

This may change in the future, but right now it is more cost effective to get you electricity from your local power company.

How Do Solar Panels Make Electricity?
Hey, I Want To Put Solar Power On Our Home And I Want To Know How Solar Panels Make Electricity? Thanks

Its a bit complicated but essentially the sunlight makes electrons jump around and create energy which is stored and converted for use. (thats not entirely accurate, but all you really need to know).

As far as what you need to know for use, the panels use the sun to create energy. This energy is carried through your wiring to a converter or battery back up system in your home. I highly recommend that you search for a local professional to set this service up for you. Otherwise it can get complicated, costly and you may violate some laws... costing you even more in fines and redoing the system.

I'M In College But I Want To Save Energy, Is There A Small Inexpensive Solar Panel System To Invest In?
I Want To Be Able To Install A Small Solar Panel System For My House In College (Which I Will Have For 2 More Years But Want To Take The Panels With Me) But A Serious Solar Panel System Could Cost Upwards Of $20Thousand And I Obviously Can'T Afford That!! Any Ideas Or Suggestions?

Sadly, even an expensive solar panel system does not produce very much electricity.

One of my colleagues installed a $30,000 system on his house several years ago. The system only produces a little over 4,000 kilowatt hours annually. Which is not very much electricity for the amount of money that he spent.

Just to pay the interest on the mortgage that he took out on his house to pay for the system is almost 60 cents per kilowatt hour, and that does not even include depreciation or maintenance on the system. That is a very expensive way to produce electricity.

If you want a solar system that is more cost effective and costs less money. I recommend that you try a solar hot water system instead. It costs much less than a solar photovoltaic system and will reduce you gas bill substantially because you will not have to use much gas to heat hot water except in the winter when the sun is not shining.
