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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, many residents discover that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#2 Earn a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power costs savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy prices have gone up by approximately three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Boost your home or business value

Numerous studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost variations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included 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 country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater 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 reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are necessary components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing company results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility business are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

How To Make A Solar-Powered Air Conditioner?
Das Any One Have A Way To Make A Air Conditioner That I Could Put A Soler Panel From A Soler Light On And Have It Run It Wile Its In The Sun I Want To Have A Air Conditioner That Will Run Off The Grid

It can be done.

You will need a solar panel that is about 100 square feet in size (10 ft x 10 ft) with a battery storage unit and a DC-to-AC converter for the air conditioner. This will give you about 1000 watts of power, and will cost about 10,000 dollars. You can run a small window-unit type air conditioner.

The battery stores power while the sun is bright so that the air conditioner will keep running if a cloud passes over. When the sun goes down, though, the batteries will run down and you won't have any air conditioning.

For the air conditioner to run all day and night, you will need at least three times as much solar panel space, so that means at least 3000 square feet, and a large enough battery to store all that extra energy for the air conditioner to use at night.

Where Is The Closest Solar, Wind And Energy Efficient Store?

The equator is the closest Solar.But in springtime Solar is closer to north latitude, and autumnal time Solar is closer to south latitude.

Why Do I Need To Upgrade My Electrical Panel To Add A Solar (Photo Voltaic) System To My House Or Business?
The Solar Company Is Saying I Need To Upgrade From 200Amps To 400 Amps To Add A 78 Kw Solar System.

The answer is different between a house and business. There is an exception in the National Electrical Code (NEC) that allows a residence to hook up solar of not greater than 20% of the panel rating, regardless of how much load is on the panel. You can find the NEC in your local public library if you want to check out this stuff. Look around article 690.

However, for a business, the panel must be able to support 100% of the possible current going through it. The scenario is as follows. Suppose you have a 200 amp panel, but have 400 amps of breakers total on it. Usually, each of those circuits only draws a fraction of the breaker value, but even if every circuit drew the maximum amount, the main 200A breaker would trip, and the building would be protected. Now suppose you feed in 78 kW of solar power into the panel. That's another 300 amps or so. If all of that goes backwards through the 200A breaker, the breaker will trip. Everyone is safe, but it's a major nuisance, and you'll lose the money you could have gotten selling the electricity. But suppose that the building is tries to draw 400 amps while the solar system provides 300. That's 300 from the solar system, and 100 from the grid, and no breakers trip. But the bus bars on the service panel heat up because they were never designed to take 400 amps. Potential fire hazard.

Panels only come in certain sizes, so you have to go to the next size up if you need a larger one.

Actually, with 78 kW, I would think that a 400A panel is not enough, unless the installers were talking about upgrading several panels at separate feed points from 200A to 400A.

Describe Any Large Scale Examples Where Energy Is Produced By Solar Power?

Hurricanes produce huge amounts of energy, power. Is that what you meant?

What Is Solar Energy???
I Need To Know How It Gets A Copper Wire/Magnet To Spin To Produce Energy What Companies Or Government Is Researching It What Problems With Energy Harnessed From Fossil Fuels Please No Wikipedia!!!!

The copper wire/magnet apparatus moves because of the photoelectric effect that Einstein found and got the Nobel Prize for. What light does is, since it is energy from photons, it knocks electrons from the outer part of the copper. The free electrons start a current moving in the wire. Use a search engine to search for "photoelectric" to get companies or government researchers working on this effect.

The problems with fossil fuels are mainly the pollution it produces and that fact that it is in limited supply. Photoelectric energy from the Sun will last for another 5 billion years!
