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 home owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous homeowners discover that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically decrease or perhaps eliminate your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity bill cost savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, property electricity rates have actually gone up by approximately three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home or business worth

Numerous research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes equipped 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 an essential part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost changes in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included 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 anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible 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 get rid of 3 to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to operate responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer buying choices, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy business are notorious for their varying and undependable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and basic math, we can determine just how much electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

What is the warranty?

The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.

Frequently Asked Questions

What, If Anything, Do You Believe The Federal Government Should Do To Control Global Climate Change?
For School We'Re Gonna Do A Debate Over This Question, And I Want To Know If You Guys Can Help Me Answer It

First of all, I'm no scientist and am responding primarily to the political and economic issues climate change present. However, it is debatable insofar as how much effect government policies and mandates can have on climate change; therefore, the first thing that the federal government should do is make sure data gathering and research is funded adequately and ensure that any legitimate hypothesis is studied. I think that the qualified skeptics who have legitimate questions about methodology or the currently understood/predicted consequences of mankind's contribution to climate change should have full access to the data and equal opportunity for funding. It has been said that such has not been the case; regardless of any evidence or lack of same to prove the claim, grant applications and other funding should not be reserved for just one side of the question-if someone has a scientifically sound idea that runs counter to the majority held opinion, it should be studied. Let them step up to the plate.

Second, government should carefully reconsider subsidies. Both oil and coal receive subsidies and other favorable treatment from the government; we shouldn't provide subsidies to the energy industry for fossil fuels and then compare alternative energy sources unfavorably in terms of cost and complain that they wouldn't be able to compete with oil and coal if they (wind and solar, for example) weren't subsidized. Of course, oil is also subsidized by the government through war, but those costs are never calculated into the cost of a barrel of oil vs. the cost of an equivalent amount of energy generated by wind or solar.

Government should also be very careful about mandating quantities such as was done with ethanol in 2007. This upset global markets; speculation drove up commodity and land prices. Some biofuel production is worthwhile for a number of reasons, but we can still see the effect mandating such large numbers had on global markets. This is worthy of an entire discussion on its own merits, bringing in other biofuel materials including things like algae, etc. Basically 'food for fuel' was an emotional argument not entirely based in reality for several reasons, perhaps most because of government policy and the law of unintended consequences-if, indeed, they were unintended.

These are three areas of interest from my particular point of view that may be worth considering and studying further for your debate. While I have opinions on geoengineering, control of emissions, cap and trade and other policies that are being discussed and a basic understanding of these government actions is critical to any debate about what the federal government should do about climate change, I personally am not prepared to make extemporaneous comments that I would be confident you could rely on in a debate, so I will leave that up to others who may be able to be of more assistance.

Good Luck.

What Changes Need To Be Made To Decrease Natural Resource Use And Decrease Pollution?

The biggest thing standing in the way of sustainable living these days is money. We have the technology to extract energy from many renewable, non-polluting sources, and to recycle almost anything. The problem is, switching to renewable energy costs time and money; so does recycling. It's much cheaper and more profitable to use fossil fuels; much cheaper and more convenient to produce and buy new goods then to use recycled old ones. What really needs to happen is that somehow, we all either need to decide to recycle and use clean energy despite increased costs to ourselves, or we need to find a way to make it profitable to do so.

There are so many different modes of clean energy. Every building could have solar panels on its roof. In places where the resources exist, wind power, geothermal power, and water power could be used. Nuclear power could be used (Whether this is a better or worse idea for the Earth depends on who you ask. Some say it's great because it can replace so much fossil fuel output and the risk of accident is low, others think the nuclear waste and the safety risk is not worth the benefit). Anyway, there are a lot of means of clean energy out there.

Likewise with recycling. In recent years, there have been a lot of advances in recycling things once thought to be unrecycleable, like plastics. The technology now exists to turn many plastics into other plastics, into gasoline and oil, or even biodegrade them using bacteria. But these technologies aren't being utilized because they're expensive compared to existing methods. It's the same with food; as much food is produced as is profitable, never mind efficiency of use. The United States alone throws away tons of food every day, and no one seems to care.

I'm starting to have some faith that we'll find ways to make recycling and clean energy profitable before it's too late. The economic crash, particularly, has caused some people to rethink the value of production versus recycling. And as technologies advance, recycling and clean energy do become cheaper and easier. Maybe we'll eventually reach a point where recycling and clean energy really are cheaper and easier than conventional methods of production.

I Want To Built A Flat Wound Spring Steal Energy Storage Device.?
Similar To An Old Clock Spring But Larger Tho Store Energy From Photo Cells Avoiding Batteries.

Just grid tie your solar panels with a grid tied inverter and use the grid as your storage device. A spring steel coil would involve too many energy conversions to even remotely be efficient, you would be better off pumping water into an elevated tank or reservoir and drawing the energy back as micro hydro.

A Relative Says That Carbon-14 Dating Of Human Fossils Is Flawed. How Are Fossils Dated?
Science Is The Backbone Of My Beliefs, But My Relative Says That Carbon-14 Dating Is Flawed. What Is The Gist Of The Carbon-14 Dating Technique? I'M Already Familiar With The Nuclear Interactions That Cause Carbon-14 To Be Radioactive. I'M More Interested In The Actual Dating Process And What The 'Thing' Is That Is Dated In Fossil Imprints, For Example.

Carbon dating works by measuring the ratio of Carbon-12 (C12) versus Carbon-14 (C14).

Carbon-14 is produced in the high atmosphere by the interaction of Nitrogen with high energy solar wind (or the neutrons within the solar wind). This C14 interacts same as C12 within the environment, thus when it combines with Oxygen the resulting CO2 is taken up by plants and stored in their tissues. The concentration of C14 is the same in the organism as it is in the atmosphere. When the plant dies the C14 decays at a KNOWN rate back into Nitrogen.

There are many pitfalls associated with Carbon dating and it is NOT a singular use dating model that can date anything you wish. It is only utilized to date ORGANIC material, thus no rocks (including fossils) can be dated using Carbon dating.

There is also the reservoir effect that is essentially the build-up of non-atmospheric Carbon within an animal, this will provide incorrect ages. The reservoir effect is observed and compensated for in any organism that didn't derive its Carbon from the atmosphere, thus Carbon dating is essentially useless in marine animals.
