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 everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of home owners find that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower or even remove your electric costs

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large portion of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power rates have gone up by approximately three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Numerous research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial 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 crucial element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common residential solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that select to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer buying decisions, producing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.

#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 money down.

Many house owners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

Since 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 infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Financing

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Panel Battery Charging?
So Idk How To Connect A Solar Panel To A Battery ...Is It Like A Series Connection From The Solar Panel To The Battery, Or A Parallel Connection From Solar Cell To Battery? (To Charge) Please And Thank You

it depends how big the panel is.

a small trickle charger (like a 2W panel with built-in diode), just connect + to + and - to - (parallel) to trickle charge the battery. The diode will keep the batter from discharging through the panel when there is insufficient sunlight.

for a large panel (like a 220W 24v panel), you best go through a charge controller. the charge controller has 2 leads for the solar panel input, 2 leads for the battery connection and 2 leads for the 12v load. just follow the instructions to connect the panel and battery to the controller, and MAKE SURE YOU USE THE REQUIRED FUSES.

very straightforward stuff -- just RTFM

How To Hook Up Solar Panels To Meter?
I Want To Know How To Hook Up Solar Panels To My Existing Power. All I Can Find On The Internet Is To Use Batteries And A Inverter. But I Want To Use All Of My Existing Lights And Outlets Off Of The Solar Energy. I Have Heard That You Can Actually Turn The Meter Backwards And Use Supplied Power When Needed. Thats What I Want To Do And Is It Possible To Do Myself And If So, How?

Im an ex solar installer. I dont know all the details but I know of 2 companies in hawaii that are doing what youre talking about - and yes, it feeds power back into the grid and makes your meter turn backwards.

uh... darn... locate a company that does that stuff and they will tell you best how and what and why. The electric comapny will know less as they are (believe it or not) behind the times.

21st century technologies is the co. in hawaii. the owner is way cool. its a full-on expensive system though, not some cheesy diy thing. its gnarley. you need the special panels and all that.

Photovoteic panels are really expensive. The system costs like 10k + but pays for itself after perhaps 6 years and then you reap the monthly check from the electric company for life (instead of you paying them)

Inh hawaii, the sun is strong = $$$ for solar. good luck in your....quest? whatever, man. Hope you find what youre looking for.,

So You Think You Can Solve This Physics-Geometry Challenge? :)?
Use Surface-Area-To-Volume Ratios To Explain Why Solar Panels Are Shaped Like Large Thin Rectangular Prisms. All Answers Are Greatly Appreciated Please Show All Your Work. Thank You For Your Time And Effort =)

Solar panel material is expensive (higher volume = $$$).
Solar panels are only useful for their surface area.
Thus you want to maximize surface area and minimize volume.
That means you want a high SA / V ratio.

Then you would try different 3D shapes to show the highest SA / V ratio. For example, a cube has SA = 6h^2, V = h^3, so SA / V is 6/h. A sphere has SA = 4pi r^2, V = 4/3 pi r^3, so SA / V = 3 / r

Do that for rectangular prisms and you'll see that it works out the best.

How To Build A Solar Panel?
Please Give Detailed Answer And Source If Possible.

you can find many sites where you get a idea to assemble a solar panel by purchasing there components online but i don't believe that i suggest you to do heavy research go through the entire technology and basics i can give a basic idea The solar energy conversion into electricity takes place in a semiconductor device that
is called a solar cell. A solar cell is a unit that delivers a certain amount of electrical power
that is characterised by an output voltage and current. In order to use solar electricity for
practical devices, which require a particular voltage or current for their operation, a number of
solar cells are connected together to form a solar panel, also called a PV module. For largescale generation of solar electricity the solar panels are connected together into a solar array.
The solar panels are part of a complete PV solar system, which, depending on the
application, comprises batteries for electricity storage, dc/ac inverters that connect a PV solar
system to the electrical grid, and other miscellaneous electrical components or mounting
elements. These additional parts of the PV solar system form a second part of the system that
is called balance of system (BOS). Finally, the solar system includes products such as
household appliances; radio or TV set that use the solar electricity for their operation. We
refer to these products as a load.
In summary, the PV solar system consists of three parts:
i) solar panels or solar arrays,
ii) balance of system,
iii) load.

How Do Solar Panels Work?
I Need To Do A Paragraph On Solar Panels On How They Work And Stuff And What You Save And How Much They Are. Oh And I Need Ot Know What Disadvantages There Are For Having Them

Light impinging on the surface of the photovoltaic cell cause electrons to be kicked free. These electrons are encouraged to move due to specific impurities intentionally placed in the silicon lattice. Electron movement is current flow. So we attach a couple of electrodes and, voila, we have a photovoltaic cell.

There are lots of more detailed explanations available on the internet.

The disadvantages of photovoltaic cells are (among others)
1) high initial cost
2) low efficiency
3) they can only work when they have adequate sunlight
4) they produce low voltage DC, requiring large banks of (expensive) batteries to store enough power to be useful
5) they're fragile
