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 daily life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many homeowners discover that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably minimize or perhaps eliminate your electrical bills

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create 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 decrease your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, residential electrical energy rates have actually increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise assists you better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your residential or commercial property value

Several research studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price changes in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market 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 nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a terrific way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to operate properly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer getting choices, creating goodwill and improving business outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.

Lots of homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility business are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Suggest A Global Solution To The Energy Issue?
What Is The Best Way??? Please Leave Me An Educated Response

A combination of renewable energy will be required for a sustainable future. No one technology has the ability to meet all energy requirements. An effective combination of many technologies will be required to meet future energy demands. Each technology has it’s advantages and limitations, but together, they can solve the world energy crisis.

Cleaner alternatives include
- Hydroelectricity
- Wave power
- Solar energy
- Wind power
- Biofuel

Other alternatives such as nuclear can be used as a transitional technology to help our society move away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy. Clearly nuclear energy also has many concerns and is a limited resource, but technology can be used temporarily while we further develop more sustainable energy sources.

The key point is we need the combined effort of individual support and government support and funding. A combination of renewable energy sources can easily meet societies energy requirements if we invest enough research, time and capital into it.

The best way to regulate the effects of increasing energy consumption is through a combination of regulation, international agreement, and green res each and technology initiatives.

The introduction of tighter regulations for large industries and high energy users should be used to control and regulate energy consumption. Perhaps placing a tax or fees on excess consumption.

International agreements to reduce emissions. Such as the Kyoto Protocol. And international carbon trading schemes.

But most importantly, is the source of energy. If we invest in green research initiatives and prevent the production of dangerous pollutants, then rather than policing energy consumption, we can focus on more sustainable energy alternatives such as wind, hydro, solar, geothermal, etc.

No single method will be effective in controlling energy consumption. Rather, it will be a combination of policy changes and a societal & technological shift towards more sustainable alternatives.

Can We Use The Solar Energy With The Ups At Home?
I Have A 10002W Ups In Home. It Charges The Battery When 220V Light Is Available, When Loadsheding Starts It Give Backup From Battery. My Question Is That, Is It Possile To Charge Battery With Solar Pannel Not With 220V Electricity By Ups, But When Loadshedding Starts Ups Use The Battery. Basically I Want To Charge Batteries With Solar Energy And Use Then Automatically As Ups Works.

Solar will work, if you have enough power to over do the AC charger, or can disable it.

Depending on the UPS, it may not be safe, if it is a closed system where the battery circuit may be connected to the high voltage mains AC circuits.

Chemisty Help: Solar Energy Vs. Nuclear Energy?
For Each Question Answer For Both A Nuclear Power Plant (Not Fossil Fueled) And Solar Energy. 1.What Are The Fuel Sources? 2.How Is The Fuel Used To Produce/Release Energy? 3.What Are The Similarities In The Way They Produce Energy? 4.Are There Any Health Hazards Associated With The Way They Produce Energy? 5.Why Is Energy Released When The Nuclear Reactions Take Place? Talk About This Using Your Research On The Forces That Hold The Nucleus Of An Atom Together.

1.What are the fuel sources?
N:Plutonium, uranium
S:The sun

2.How is the fuel used to produce/release energy?
N:Uranium/plutonium go under a fission which causes atoms to split and make MASSIVE amounts of energy, which is used to boil water and spin turbines.
S:Absorb light photons, which causes electricity to form.

3.What are the similarities in the way they produce energy?
Their basically opposites.

4.Are there any health hazards associated with the way they produce energy?
N:Uranium is radioactive, and will continue to be radioactive for MANY MANY years. this can cause mutations, cancer, and death. Especially because there is waste and the waste has to be buried underground.

5.Why is energy released when the nuclear reactions take place? Talk about this using your research on the forces that hold the nucleus of an atom together.

Okay, so Atoms are held together strongly, right? Well, when they split it causes a bit of energy to do so, and the energy released is WAY more then that. This is also a chain reaction from the first atom splitting and hitting two more atoms and so on...

Question About Wind Power And Solar Energy?
So If We Were To Use Wind Or Solar Energy Does That Mean That It Will Be Free To Us As Citizens? We Wouldn'T Have To Pay Anything For Power? Thank You.

Not a chance. They are expensive to buy the machinery to make them work, and to add insult to injury, wind and solar farms in Scotland, England, Spain, Germany and other countries were paid to shut down for periods of time because of the operating problems of the wind and solar generation systems.

Shoots down the whole theory for free energy. I wish I could be paid to stay home and not work - wind and solar frams were, why not me??

Why Do You Consider Yourself Liberal Or Conservative?
This Is A Serious Question. I'M Curious To Know What Makes You Identify The Way You Do Politicaly... (A) Their Economic, Taxing, And Spending Strategies. (Flat Or Incremented Tax, Obamacare Or No Obamacare, Etc, Etc) (B) Their Foreign Policy (Drone Strikes Vs Military Presence) (C) The &Quot;Issues&Quot; (Gay Mariage, Marijuana, &Quot;Green&Quot; Energy, Etc, Etc) With The Issues I Am Going To Specifically Exclude Abortion. Most Conservatives (And A Few Liberals) That I Know That Consider Themselves Pro-Life Argue That Abortion Is Murder (They Aren'T Prolife Because They Don'T Like Women To Have Rights)

Actually I consider myself neither as I am conservative on certain issues, while being liberal on others.

Or as I like to call myself, "A Social Realist"

A - Taxes are something that is a needed evil in life. We want a government, we should all have to pay for it. I'm however one who believes in a flat tax as opposed to the horribly convoluted series of tax laws that seem like that they were designed TO get people to make auditable mistakes and force us to pay penalties. Either that or take the safe way out of it and only file a 1040EZ and not get back what they should get back.

Win-Win for Government either way.

Obamacare...I'm all for the concept of it as there are far too many people who can not afford health care and if there is anything that can be learned from the Healthcare System is that prevention is far cheaper than a cure in many cases. So these people *need* something, they need some way to be able to afford care while minor problems are still minor and to be able to help them not get buried in soul-crushing debt when something major happens.

Is Obamacare the best solution? Is it one that will work at all? Will it doom us all? I don't know one way or the other. I only know that as of right now it's the *only* plan on the table since no one else is willing to think of some other way to achieve the same goal.

B - Military action is military action. I'm all for drone strikes over military presence since that's less of our men and women being in harm's way.

BUT...only in a situation where we *really* need to be. The first gulf war was a good example. Some schmuck of a dictator decided that they were going to waltz next door and take over another country. Kuwait needed help and we provided. The second war and the ongoing struggles where we're currently @#$hole deep in alligators...I don't think we need to be there. And Syria? That's a situation where both sides are bat-[excrement] crazy and I don't think we should be involved unless the UN is willing to send other troops besides the US into the situation. *IF* they think action is needed, don't just send us and then admonish us for doing what we train our warriors to do.

C - Gay Marriage? Marriage as it has become in today's society is a legal agreement that can (but does not have to be) ratified by a religious personage. I have a civil union with my wife. We are married but no member of the clergy presided over it. It was a quick Justice of the Peace with a schlep to the Chinese Takeout place afterwards. So I'm all for allowing same-sex marriages, but am also for the freedom of the churches to decide if they want to preside over them. Gays have the right to marry, the individual churches should have the freedom of their religion to say "We don't agree with it." If a church doesn't want to do it, the same sex couple should be able to find another church that will or at the very least hit the strip at Vegas or do what we did and do a quick JoP jobber.

Weed? Legalize it. Not going into the usual arguments, I will say that it's getting less and less criminalized. Instead of being arrested for a joint in the car, you're more likely to simply get a court summons. They're not as adamant about going after it and if they're not wanting to arrest everyone with an ounce or less...they need to legalize it altogether.

Green Energy - I'm all for it. There is nothing out there (yet) that is the ultimate solution. BUT every thing we look into can ease our need for petroleum and coal. Our area put in a 5 megawatt solar farm. That's 5 megawatts less that the coal fired plant in our area needs to generate meaning that it uses less fuel. It's not much, a drop in the bucket...but like the bucket under a leaky roof, eventually that bucket gets filled.

Every little bit helps and may hold us over until we can finally develop the safe and clean fusion systems that is the staple of science fiction and that a ton of scientific institutes and egg heads are trying to make scientific reality.

So take all that as you will. I'm liberal on some issues, less so on others.
