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 daily life: running your a/c, 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 ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many property owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically decrease or perhaps remove your electric costs

Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free 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 lower your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity expense savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power costs have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or house owner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your house value

Several studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations 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 residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a terrific way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical property solar panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are necessary parts of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that pick to run properly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Saving 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 money down.

Lots of property owners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electricity-- 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 Investment

The energy companies are well-known for their changing and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy math, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Is Energy Consumption Bad For The Environment?
How/Why Is Energy Consumption Bad For The Environment?

Consuming the energy isn't directly the problem. The problems are where do you get it from and where do you dispose of the waste products, including heat. Just before the rise of the automobile, New York was faced with a seemingly unsolvable horse manure problem. 50 years later, the horse manure problem was gone along with most of the pollution from transportation, in spite of vastly more energy use, because the automobile spills its waste products into the air instead of on the ground. The waste has a much larger reservoir to spread into and more access to plants to break it down.
The clean air act then cleaned up the local pollutants, such as NO2, quite a bit.
Heat's a little different story. Localized dumping of excess heat can be bad for water bodies the heat gets dumped into. If you use evaporative cooling towers, your process water becomes very mineral heavy. Finally, most energy in the world today come from fossil fuels. An inescapable byproduct of fossil fuel use is CO2, and CO2 traps heat in the atmosphere. The resultant global warming is going to cause us major expense due to infrastructure damage and population dislocation.
Becoming energy efficient can be extremely good for both the environment and your wallet. Electrical power companies estimates show possible conservation in the U.S. with existing technology could save enough energy to shut down every one of our coal-fired plants - the most polluting energy technology.
As to the wallet part - High rises are not investing in more efficient air conditioning, nor is Walmart putting thin film PV solar electrical panels on its store roofs because they want to waste money.

Clarysolar.Com - Is Anyone Here Who Can Give Me Idea About Clary Solar Services?
Actually I Live In San Diego And Want To Install Solar Energy Panel At My Resident Address, I Heard About Clary Solar From My Some Source That They Have A Good Service, So Wondering To Know More....Is Any One Who Has Some Knowledge?

I have never seen a bad install from any vendor, so encourage you to get multiple bids on your job. There are lots of installers in the San Diego area. Also ask for a reference close to your house that you can visit.

Also look at Yelp as a disaster check. No installer is going to give you a reference that was unhappy, but Yelp might.

How Do Home Solar Panels Integrate Into A Houses Current Electricity?
I Know The Basics Of How Solar Panels Work. Solar Panels Convert Sunlight Into Dc Electricity Which Is Stored In Batteries Which Would Need To Be Run Through An Inverter To Convert It To Household Ac. But Is There A Way For The Appliances To Use The Solar Panels Electricity First And Any Additional Power From The Grid? Is That How It Works Or Do They Only Run Specific Devices(Water Heater, Pool Pump, Etc)?

The batteries are inefficient and expensive. Lead acid batteries are 95% efficient at discharging but only 50% efficient at charging so you need double your power consumption in solar panels for a battery based system.

The big breakthrough was in grid tied inverters, these can be connected to the grid and synchronizes it's frequency to the grid thereby selling the solar power to the grid. The house electric system remains on the grid so you buy back the power when you need it effectively turning the grid into a 100% efficient battery by accounting. This saves you the cost of the batteries and the inefficiencies of the batteries halving the number of panels that you need. Grid tied solar can be a third the price of a comparable battery based system.

The utilities will usually still have a service fee and may have limitations such as you can only sell the amount of power that you use and the sale can only be credits versus future energy purchases. There will also be the inefficiencies of the grid tied inverter but it would be at full load which is when it is the most efficient often 95% whereas the partial load use of a battery based system operates the inverter at an average of 65% efficiency which is why DC appliances are highly recommended for a battery based system.

Solar Panels, And Outside Of The Box?
Solar Panels Seem To Be Pretty Expensive, As Well As Wind Powered Generators. Does Anyone Know Of Any Businesses Or Services Where I Can Find Panels For A Really Low Price (Respectively). How About Any Other Outside Of The Box Style Solutions For Harnessing The Natural Energies Around Us? (Sun, Wind, Etc)

Unfortunately, until these forms of power generation become more mainstream, they will not drop in price. They are all expensive.

How Do Solar Panels Work?
Please Explain It Simply, But Detailed. Thanks!(:

Solar panel is made of semiconductor material (Silicon) that is quadrivalent. It is in two layers being doped by a minuscule trace each of other impurities. One layer gets positive (if dopant is trivalent) or negative (if dopant is pentavalent). the barrier between these two (p & n type materials) develops a potential 'bias' with minority carriers (negatively charged electrons in p material and holes for want of electrons in n type material).to which charges get drawn. Now we need to find a mechanism to generate charges by releasing them from the atoms.
When the light quanta (radiation from the Sun) strike it, energy gets absorbed by individual atoms(Si atoms are covalently bonded). Some electrons of atoms get enough energy to jump the 'band gap' separating the valence and conduction energy bands of atom. These free electrons try to move freely towards the positive side of the circuit. There is a bias inherent due to the charge distribution of such minority carriers crowding near 'interface'(barrier or junction) that makes a +ve & -ve of the circuit.
Electrons thus flowing constitute a current that can be tapped as 'current' source, by allowing the stream to flow through an electric 'load', may be a light bulb or a small gadget like i pod. The load shouldn't be such as to absorb all of it draining the flow. It is the design part of it (calculate how much current & consequently what power should be generated).
