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 homeowner to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably lower or even remove your electric bills

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large part of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past ten years, domestic electrical power costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a company or house owner with ever-changing money flow, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Numerous studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes geared up 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 accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a great method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal property solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that choose to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and improving service results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous homeowners select to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy business are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Howmuch Solar Panels I Need To Run Arefun/Tv/And Computer And 5,000Btu Ac?

The AC is the problem. You probably need about 700 to 1000 watts to run all that.

When you include the installation, charge controller, batteries (lots of expensive batteries) and inverter, you are probably looking at US$20,000 or so.

Whereas from the power company, 1000 watts costs about $1000 per year.


I Have Three 130 Watt Solar Panel And 6 Battery Cells Of 2 Volts 550Ah. But My Batteries Are Never Fully Charg?
Can This Amount Of Solar Charge These Batteries.

Well you are stating the solar panel powers but no mention of their voltage????. Yes, they should do the job. I suspect the lack of blocking diodes may be your problem, assuming you have done the homework. You have 6 battery cells at 2 volts each, that is ...err..12 volts, assuming you have them connected in series. Count the number of cells on the solar panels and maybe we have a starting point. One solar cell is 0.6 v, in this case you would need a minimum of around 30 cells (physically it will probably be 32 to make it 'square'), you need a fair bit of over- sizing in that direction. Solar panels are resistive when not illuminated so must have a blocking diode included to prevent the batteries from discharging into the solar panels at night. Check that each array has a blocking diode included, if not add them. Solar power is pretty useless unless you have loads of sunshine. You seem to have gone through a bit of trouble and expense on this one, so give me some basic facts and I will help you through it.

Update 7 Dec If the batteries take 20 hours to fully charge and there are 10 hours of sun each day then the batteries will be fully charged in 2 days. The question was, can the battery be charged, answer is yes, it can. There is no mention of load. If the batteries are not charging there is something wrong.

After You Build Solar Panels, What Do You Hook Them To? Batteries, The Book Doesn'T Tell You About This?
I Ordered The Power 4 Homes Book And It Said Nothing About Hooking Up The Batteries To The Solar Panel Or Wind Generator.

in truth, you're out 50 bucks.
they're not going to work.
and i may be wrong, but i don't thing you're going to get your money back.
they claim to have an email address that will answer your questions.

they also claim that the power company will pay you.
not true.
the power company, here at least, will allow you to offset your bill up to the amount of energy you use.
but will not pay you for any excess.
in addition, there are taxes and fees that you have to pay even if you owe nothing for electricity.

they also claim that their wind turbine will generate 450 watts.
however, if your house is anything like mine you use 1,000- 2,000- 3000 Kw of power.
your refrigerator uses more than 450 watts.

the fact is that to get a solar panel to work with any efficiency takes chemistry that you don't have at home.

frankly, his 102,000 current users seems more than a little unlikely to me.
if he really was that successful you'd see it on the news.

i've listened to his pitch.
he's a carnival salesman.
what he's really passionate about is getting your money.


Has Main Street Shifted More Left Or More Right?
Wind Energy, Solar Energy, Hybrids, Market Regulations, Limited Abortions, Health Care For Low Income People, Global Warming, Taxing And Regulating Oil Companies, Disapproval Of The No Child Left Behind Program, And Separation Of Church And State, All See To Be Main Street Values Now. Although, Immigration Laws, Pows, And Torcher Also Seem To Be Accepted By Main Street. Has America As A Whole Shifted More Left Or Right In The Last 10-20 Years?

Society itself is trying to shift toward sustainability. The people who are in power don't want to lose their milk cows and are trying to prevent it.
Sustainability will be considered left-sided until more companies realize how profitable it can be.then the right will jump on claiming they were for it, the whole time.

America itself has shifted more right as a result of a surprise we got on September 11,2001.
As the moderates realize it and start felling enough is enough, because things are unjustifiably too far right, the cycle will tilt back left.

Solar Power???????????????????
What Is Solar Energy? What Is It Used For? How It Is Obtained? And In What Form? What Is The Price Of Solar Power? How Solar Power Works, Different Types Of Solar Panels Hmm I Have To Find Out A Lot About Solar Energy. Thanks :)

Solar energy is the light, visible and invisible, that is emitted from the sun.

Solar power is the electricity that is created from solar energy in man made devices.

The solar energy can be used to directly create electricity in solar cells. It can also be used to heat a material that is then used to heat water and power a generator. These are the two most common ways of creating solar power from solar energy.

The price of the solar power will depend on how it is created.

Solar power is electricity and can be used anyway that other electricity can be used.

New types of solar panels are being developed at a rapid rate in the modern world. I would suggest a search on line for the latest available and the newest research results.
