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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing 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 substantial, many home owners find that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically reduce or perhaps eliminate your electrical costs

Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary 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 decrease your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy prices have increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with changing capital, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and handle your costs.

#4 Boost your house worth

Multiple research studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties 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 an essential part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that pick to run properly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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 companies are infamous for their changing and undependable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

How Is Solar Energy Used?
I Am Writing An Essay For Science And I Need Help. How Is Solar Energy Used In Radiation, Convection, And Conduction? Also Is It Bad For The Environment? Please Answer. Thanks :)

Solar energy can be used for day lighting, cooking, heating water, disinfection, distillation, making saline water potable and high temperature process heating. It is used in residential, commercial, industrial and remote applications purpose.

Help!!!!Solar Energy Slogan?
I Have A Project In Science Where I Am Representing A Company That Is Selling Solar Energy. I Needy S Catchy Slogan For My Company! Please

Solar - We really can't afford it!

I recently did a study of solar in "The Sunshine State" (Florida) where I live. I took into consideration (1) a 30% rebate from the federal government, (2) state and local sales and property tax exemption.

Even with the government (taxpayers across the country) subsidizing me the solar energy collection system would have to run at peak efficiency for over 25 years with no repairs and no maintenance just to break even compared to projected fossil and nuclear power costs.

The FPL Group is building a CSP plant here in Florida (they already operate 7 of the 9 "working" plants in California). The panels are glass. The collector tubes are glass. Who will pay to replace all this glass after the first hail storm or hurricane?

Solar is not financially viable even in the southwest where solar radiance is twice the rest of the country and humidity is super low. The solar plant FPL will build in Florida is the same design that the bankrupt (1991) company Luz patented in the 1980s.

--------------------------------------...
Current estimates say solar power will be competitive with coal and gas in ten years. In the 1980s the estimate was also 10 years. It's like the sign in the bar that reads "Free beer tomorrow!"

How Solar Energy Is Produced And How It Cover ?

Solar energy is energy that comes from the sun - the sun fuses hydrogen to helium to create that energy.

Life on Earth absorbs that energy.

No idea what you mean by "how it cover" - sunlight shines over the entire Earth.

Are There Any Advantages To Upgrading The Electric Panel For My House?
I Am Having Solar Panels Installed For My 50+ Year Old House. The Site Evaluation People Came By And Thought They Could Use My Existing Electric Panel, But They Are Not Completely Sure. I Haven'T Had Many Problems With It. When I Had A Pool Heater Installed, The People Made A Separate Circuit Breaker Near The Heater Rather Than The Electric Panel. But Otherwise, It Hasn'T Been An Issue. So My Question Is Whether I Should Take This Opportunity To Upgrade The Electric Panel In Case Of Future Need, Or Wait Till It No Longer Works, And Upgrade Then. I Am Not An Electrician, So I Don'T Know Why I Would Need To Upgrade The Electric Panel If The Solar Installation Guys Say What I Have Is Old But Is Good Enough For Their Purposes. Thanks.

Hoo boy tough call. A new panel isn't cheap. So if the existing will suffice you might do well to leave it alone. Unless...
Open the cover and look at the label. If it says FP&E, Replace it! FP&E breakers are a known fire hazard. Do an internet search and you'll see what I mean.
Also, if you chose to replace it I strongly suggest 5 estimates. That way you can ignore the lowest as well as the highest. Then pick from the middle based on reputation. Make them break their estimate down by price per part and the labor separate.
Sq D is a very good brand. But you want to specify a copper buss bar, not aluminum or plated.

Where Does The Energy Go?
The United States Economy Is 41% Efficient. Where Does The Other 59% Of The Energy That Is Fed Onto The Economy Go?

I don't think your number there really means anything credible. But any form of energy is largely wasted in its distribution or use due to the laws of physics and limitations in technology.

Generally there are ways to improve efficiency, but they are expensive. For example, most electricity that is generated in a power plant is lost to resistance as it travels along the cables to homes and businesses. The only way to avoid that would be to have power plants on every block, which is unrealistic. Or for everyone to use solar panels, which is extraordinarily expensive. Right now the best solution is centralized power plants, and just accept the losses.

Society tends to work its way to the solution that gives the best combination of affordability and efficiency.
