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 use the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, washing clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, many property owners find that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably decrease or perhaps eliminate your electrical expenses

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a big portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of money.

#2 Earn a great return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, property electrical power prices have gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also assists you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home or business worth

Numerous studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated 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 achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are very important elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that pick to operate properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer buying choices, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving 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 cash down.

Many house owners select to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- 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 Investment

The energy companies are infamous for their varying and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Three Renewable Alternative Energy Sources?
I Need Help On This. When U Answer Can U Be Thorough About Why The 3 Alternative Energy Sources Are Renewable Please.

Wind, solar and tidal (or wave) power.

They are considered renewable because no matter how much wind or sunlight or how many waves you use, you'll never consume it all. Petroleum products like oil and natural gas are not renewable because there is a finite amount of it in the ground. When it's gone, it's gone.

It may not be windy, sunny or wavy every day, but there'll always be more.

How Is Solar Energy Formed?

The sun is an ongoing set of thermonuclear reactions. The radiated energy from them reaches us as sunlight, IR and UV radiation among others. This energy is typically captured directly by photovoltaic cells or indirectly by heating a fluid and either using the hot fluid to heat something else or to drive a turbine generator. Of course wind power generators also capture solar energy because the sun's energy powers the winds.

Where Can I Get Information On How Water Energy Is Harnesses?
I Need It For A School Project. Also I Need Pictures And Tons Of Information. Also It Would Be Good If I Could Also Find The Disadvantages And Advantages Of Using This Type To Harness Energy.

Consider how much hot water is required, what water saving plumbing can be used and if there is much solar energy in your area. It takes 0.054 kWh to heat a litre of water using electric storage heating.
Consider solar water heating if you use enough hot water.
Also look up co-generation which can create heat and electricity.

What Is The Best Form Of Power Plant In Your Opinion?
I Know It'S Very Debatable, But In Terms Of Efficiency, Cost, And Environment, Which Do You Think Is The Best And Worst, And Why. The Choices Are: Coal, Gas, Nuclear, Wind, Hydroelectric, Organic Material (Wood), Solar, A Satellite That Collects Energy And Beams It To A Giant Satellite Dish On Earth In A Microwave Ray

I like solar the best.

Why Are Photosynthesis & Cellular Respiration Important To Energy Flow?
...And The Organisms That Perform The Processes (Photosynthesis & Cellular Respiration). Thank You In Advance.

Well, the answerer who posted before me answered correctly why it was important to the organism that performs it. But I thought I would include a basic chemical approach as well. Just in case you needed it.

In order for any system to function it must require energy to work. Cells are no different.

Basically ATP is the source of chemical energy that cells use in order to perform its functions. In the case of plants they could turn solar energy into chemical energy (glucose) while animal cells could only transform chemical energy into other chemical energy. In photosynthesis (after the pigments are increased by solar energy and the electrons are passed down) the electron transport chain (found in the membrane of the thylokoids in a chloroplast) is responsible for passing down energy (via electrons, hydrogen ions) that will then bring about the causation to produce ATP which is the energy that the cells use.

In animal cells instead of the synthesis of ATP happening in the chloroplasts, the ATP production happens in the mitochondria. (animal cells have no chloroplasts). Instead of the mitochondria using light, it uses glucose and oxygen to produce its chem energy.

As a recap:

Photosynthesis basically turns solar energy into chemical energy from creating glucose and oxygen from the reaction of water, carbon dioxide and light energy. This is an endergonic reaction (energy requiring). Although it is broken up, it isn't a long, single-step reaction. But to make things simple we can pretend that it is.

Cellular respiration is exergonic (energy releasing) and it creates ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which is chemical energy, from glucose and oxygen. (water and oxygen are other products as well as ATP)
