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 resident to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many property owners discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly decrease or perhaps eliminate your electric expenses

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a big portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Boost your property value

Several studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs 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 great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common property solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to operate properly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of customer buying choices, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- 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 energy companies are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Financing

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The Best Alternative-Energy For Vehicles?
Ok, I Used To Be All Gung-Ho About Ethanol, But I Have Heard Too Many Bad Things About It. For One, Ethanol Takes As Much Energy To Produce As It Releases. Also, It Will Be More Expensive Than Gas, And Pollute Almost The Same Amount. Biodiesel Seems To Be A Good One, But It May Damage Engines Over Long Periods Of Time, As It Contains Water. So What Is Going To Be The Actual Alternative Energy That Replaces Gasoline? Heck, I May Even Drive One, As Long As It Meets My Few But Strict Standards: 1. It Has To Cost Less Than, Or At Least No More Than, Gasoline. 2. It Has To Take No More Time To Fill Up Than Gasoline. 3. My Car Can Sacrifice No Performance Due To It. 4. My Car Can Be No More Expensive Due To It. All-Electric Cars May Work, But The Problem Will Be Having &Quot;Energy-Stations&Quot; Around The Country, And Also Charging A Vehicle Quickly, Like Filling It Up With Fuel. An Overnight Charge Will Be No Good For Someone On A Cross-Country Trip. So, What Will It Be, And Why?

Electric is the best choice, and I will show you exactly why. Much of the 'anti-EV' talk around here is based on 30-year old electric cars - but technology has not stood still.
*
First, let's dispense with hydrogen. Fuel cell cars are electric cars (including batteries, because fuel cells can't make enough current for acceleration by themselves.) This means a fuel cell car will always be more expensive, and heavier, than a pure electric car. It will be more expensive to fuel as well, and more polluting (from the energy used to make hydrogen), because hydrogen is less efficient at storing energy than batteries. GM's Sequel fuel cell car is nearly 5,000 pounds, heavier than any pure electric car (twice the weight of the Tesla electric sports car.)
*
Electric vehicles are extremely efficient, and do not have to be expensive to buy. Take a look at this page about EVs you can find for as little as $5000:
*
http://squidoo.com/cheap-electric-car
*
If you want something better than a cheap EV, here's the latest cutting-edge EV:
*
http://zapworld.com/ZAPWorld.aspx?id=456...
*
The ZAP-X outputs 644 horsepower, 155mph top speed, 350-mile range, charges in just 10 minutes, and has a 300,000 mile battery life. If EVs catch on, there will be 10-minute chargers at service stations, so we can take long trips.
*
Or, with a 350-mile range, just pull into a hotel, and charge it from a wall plug while you sleep. Go more than 350 miles per day by charging it while you eat meals.
*
I drive my electric car around for only about a penny per mile in electricity. High efficiency means more miles on less energy, which is why it's so cheap to drive on electricity. It's also why EVs make very little pollution, even if powerplants burn dirty fuel. But the best part is that a car-sized solar panel only costs about $1000. Put one up to help with charging, and your cost per mile - and pollution output - drops to almost ZERO. Name me another fuel that can beat that number.

Help On A Persuasive Paragraph?
Okay So I Am Doing 3 Paragraph On 1. Solar Energy 2. Wind Energy And 3. Tide Energy I Need Help On How To Start Them Please I Cant Do This And I Dont Understand This!! They Are Due Tomorrow And Yeah. So I Have To Write Them Persusivly Nd I Dont Know How To Start Like The Whole Thing Please And Tahknk You(:

you might know these basic steps already

"A persuasive essay is an essay in which you try to persuade the reader to believe a certain view or have a certain opinion. A persuasive essay usually contains relevant sources and statistics that persuade a reader to believe this viewpoint. ."

so in your paragraph you would need to make a convincing point on why we should or shouldn't use 1. solar energy 2. wind energy and 3. tide energy

Definitions of Solar energy on the Web:

* Solar energy, radiant light and heat from the Sun, has been harnessed by humans since ancient times using a range of ever-evolving technologies. ...
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_energy


Definitions of Wind energy on the Web:

* Wind power is the conversion of wind energy into a useful form of energy, such as using wind turbines to produce electricity. ...
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wind_energy

Definitions of Tidal energy on the Web:

*Tidal energy, sometimes called tidal power, is a form of hydropower that exploits the movement of water caused by tidal currents or the rise and fall in sea levels due to the tides. Although not yet widely used, tidal power has potential for future electricity generation and is more predictable than wind energy and solar power. In Europe, tide mills have been used for over a thousand years, mainly for grinding grains.

would you want your cell phone, ipod, car, home powered by solar energy, wind energy etc.

How Does Using A Hand Dryer Save The Environment?
I See This All The Time When I'M In Public Restrooms. It'S Written On The Electric Hand Dryer On The Wall And It Says That Using The Hand Dryer Over Paper Towels Helps Save The Environment. Can Someone Explain To Me How Using The Hand Dryer Is More Beneficial Towards The Environment Than Paper Towels? I Know It Saves Trees But Trees Are Renewable And Can Grow Back. To Use An Electric Dryer Uses Electricity And That Electricity Is Usually Powered By Oil, Which Isn'T Renewable.

1. Trees serve many important functions in the environment, they provide food and habitat for animals, they turn solar energy into chemical energy, they enrich the soil and protect it from erosion.

2. Paper cannot be recycled indefinitely, the fibers break down so new pulp must be added, and not all of it is recycled into the same product (paper towels into paper towels) therefore more trees must be cut to produce paper no matter how much is recycled.

3. Air blowers are becoming more efficient, they now build "air squeegies" which use a line of high pressure air rather than heated air to dry your hands. As they become more efficient the energy used to dry your hands with air is less than the energy used to make, transport and recycle the paper towels (especially transport, transporting electrons to power a blower is much more efficient than transporting tons of paper).

4. Air dryers also do not use harsh chemicals, making / recycling paper does.

Both using less energy AND using fewer trees helps the environment.

Why Should We Not Use Nuclear Energy?
Is It Dangerous? Are Their Other Good Alternatives?

There are alternatives, but you need to spend a lot in order to get the same
level of energy back. So there are issues of sustainability. Nuclear
is an efficient way of producing energy albeit one that needs high levels
of safety. The waste is also an issue. The world currently has an
energy problem. How do we produce enough, with dwindling resources
for expanding populations and economies. Sustainable technologies are
being developed such as wind, solar and water that generate electricity but
is it going to be enough? This is why the building of nuclear power stations
is back on the agenda in terms of power generation. It's a sustainable, limitless
source of energy. However, Chernobyl, the Russian nuclear disaster in 1986, is a
warning that when things go wrong, the results can be catastrophic.

Why Is It Important To Conserve Energy?
I Am Doing A Project At School And I Am A Year 6 And I Dont Understand What It Means ! Please Help ? ::

It's a pretty simple concept really. Conserving energy was created when people realized that we had limited energy resources such as coal. Energy conservation is to conserve the energy so we will have it in the future, which is really a sort of short term plan because even while conserving, we will eventually run out.
Donserving energy on a h
Household basis includes turning off lights when leaving a room, carpooling to use fewer cars, etc.
On a wider basis, it includes changing products to use less energy, altering the energy used to fly planes, drive cars. Renewable energy is energy that is unlimited, such as solar or wind (not water!)
Conserving is important, it's the first step in changing the world to make it more environmentally friendly and although it's not a permanent solution, gives us time to find a plan that IS! :)
