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 property owner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, many home owners find that the benefit, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly reduce or perhaps eliminate your electrical bills

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a terrific return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity costs have increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home or business value

Numerous studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common domestic solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that select to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer buying decisions, developing goodwill and improving business outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous house owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are infamous for their changing and undependable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be generated, and most importantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Do These Solar Panels/Systems/Devices Exist?
I'Ve Been Having Electricity Issues In My Country Lately Due To Overuse, So I Was Wondering, Since Its Sunny Throughout The Whole Year Why Not Use Solar Energy? For A Start I Just Want To Buy/Build A System That Can Be Placed On The Rooftop That Would Either Be Connected With A Power Cord To My Room Where I Can Charge My Iphone And Laptop Or It Would Charge A Battery And Then Use It To Charge Them. In Brief, I Just Want To Know Is It Possible And Where Can I Find Those (Online Preferably) To Be Compatible With Charging My Iphone And Laptop. Thanks!

There are plenty of solar panels for charging small devices but they are mostly for trickle charging to stretch out your use, there are larger ones that fold out which are sold to campers and hikers that could perhaps charge your device instead of just make them last longer but you will find that it does take longer to do so than when charging from the wall socket. You should perhaps encourage your parent to pay the electricity bill.

Why Is Solar Power Good For Suburban Areas?
I Don'T Know Why Solar Would Be Great For Suburban Areas. Can You Tell Me?

There are a lot of Roofs that are Wasted Space put solar panels on them it helps save you money and lowers the need for more Fossil Fuel or Nuclear Energy Power Stations. I have 20 panels on my roof I no longer get a Bill in Australia as well as we get paid for the power we put into the Grid only 8 Cents a KW but that's better then Paying

Wanting To Add Solar Panels To My Home?
I Have A Home In Manchester Tn And We Have Been Slowly Remodeling The Home. It Is About 2100 Sq Ft Of Living Space. Our Normal Electric Bill Is About 150 A Month. We Would Like To Add Some Solar Panels To The Home To Help Reduce The Amount Of The Bill. How Many Panels Do I Need And What Would Be The Cost? I Am Not Trying To Go Completely Of The Grid But I Would Like To Start Somewhere And Maybe Over The Years Be Able To Add. What Is Your Recommendation For A Reasonable Cost Of Under 2 To 3 K??

Unless there has been some major breakthrough in solar panel efficiency - Forget it.

I had looked at some "utility interactive" systems where the electricity generated by the solar panels went through a special inverter and into the electrical system of the house, any power you didn't use went backwards through the meter and into the grid.

I figured that even if it was sunny every day, it would take about 20 years to break even on the system. That is, if I had invested $5,000 in a small system, to save $5,000 off the electric bill would take 20 years. If I had $5,000 to invest, this wouldnt be the place! It would take much more than 20 years of electrical savings to match even a modest investment. Then, don't forget what happens if 10 years from now the inverter or some of the panels fail and need replaced.

Invest in fluorescent lights, maybe even LEDs. You will see a much quicker return on investment. Install more insulation, put in a heat-pump system.

I appreciate you desire to save some energy, solar just isn't going to be worth doing, at least not yet.

Why Is Solar Energy Still So Expensive?

The best I can tell, there would be about a $25,000 cost to install 100 sq ft. of solar panels on my southerly facing rooftop. If I consider that the system has an economic life of at least 25 years, then the math is pretty simple. It will cost me about $1000/ year to own the solar panel system. I can expect a 40-60% reduction in my electric bill which runs me about an average of $700/month since my husband starts to sweat at 70 degrees. Conservatively then, I should save a minimum of $280/month and I begin saving money after about month four which is also about the same time as my Tax Freedom Day!

Why Should More People Use Solar Power And Wind Power?
Why Should More People Use Solar Power And Wind Power? And What Are The Benefits Of Both Of Them? Does It Save You Money, How Much And How Much Will It Help The Earth If One Person Decided To Use Them? What About A Hundred People? What Would Happen If Everyone And Every Building, Cars, Trains, Airplanes, Everything In The Whole World Started Using Solar/Wind Power?

Solar panels are not as "Eco friendly" as you may think. Solar panels are a semi conductor type device as as such the manufacturing process generates lots of Hazardous Waste that need to be disposed of.

Solar panels produce DC power which has limited use in homes wired for use with AC power. Thus expensive inverters are required to change the DC into usable AC. It is possible to use some Solar generated DC in a home. One efficient way of DC usage would be to use a separate DC lighting circuit. This would eliminate the need for an expensive DC to AC inverter and operate more efficiently.

The down side of using DC is the necessity of rewiring a home or having DC operated equipment.

There is also the issue of where to install wind and or solar systems as not all homes are ideally located.

System installation is expensive and is another source of maintenance expenses a home owner must bare. Consider the damage that can be done by a hail storm to a solar system.

Then there is the long time required to break even and recover the installation costs. Without significant subsidies one can easily spend 10's of thousand of dollars which requires decades to break even. Traditional electric providers by comparison provide low cost maintenance free electricity.


EDIT:
Phillip is pointing out an obvious problem.....there are too many people on the planet. Billions of people demanding resources.
