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 ac system, cleaning clothing, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, many property owners find that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically reduce and even eliminate your electric costs

Whether you're a property owner, service, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can comprise a big part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power costs have actually increased by approximately three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're a service or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home or business value

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

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate fluctuations in worldwide 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 development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend 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 great way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal residential 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 commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are important parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to operate responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and improving service outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 business are infamous for their varying and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate how much electrical power will be generated, and most significantly, at what rate, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Financing

What are the various payment options?

We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

The Lease

  • Low, fixed payments each month
  • System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance
  • Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

  • We own the solar panel system
  • $0 down for installation
  • Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use

Purchase

  • Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
  • System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
  • Receive 30% federal tax credit
  • See a return on investment within 7-10 years

What happens when the contract for my lease is finished?

We provide our customers with a few different options for when their lease contract is up. Customers can upgrade their equipment to the newest solar technology available, extend the agreement, or have the panels removed at no cost.

What is the warranty?

The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Passive Energy?
What'S The Diffrence Between Active Solar Energy And Passive Solar Energy?

Passive solar energy is simple unaided sunshine heat and/or light. Feel warm from standing in the sun? That's passive solar energy. It's doing nothing but landing on you, and warms you up directly. Sunlight is passive solar light.

Active solar when there's an appliance of some kind turning that passive energy into some other kind of energy. The most obvious is sunlight landing on a photovoltaic cell which produces electricity, and you use that electricity to do something like create heat with a toaster to make toast, or to light a LED lightbulb to make light. Both are still done with solar, but because there's a PV cell converting the sunlight into electrical energy, what you have is active solar.

Where is gets a little blurry is with something like solar hot water. You could argue that the water is heated passively, but many solar hot water units now don't have the acutal water that you use being heated directly by the sun, there's a frost-proof fluid used which then pipes through the water heating it.

Or a passive solar heated home. These work by having windows pointed to the sun and capturing the passive heat, and then having insulation and double glazed windows to keep that heat inside. Yes it's passive heating, but some passive building design is so sophisticated with passive COOLING as well that the building is as complex as a solar hot water system or even a PV cell, so could be argued as being an ACTIVE solar house.

Solar Energy.....????
Need Some Simple Information About Solar Energy And Power. Do Solar Panels Absorb The Suns Rays? What Are The Benefits Of Solar Energy? And Other Basic Information 10 Points For Best Answer

The panels absorb light from the sun, and convert directly into electricity. They are used in outer space, and remote locations on earth to generate power over long periods of time without maintenance. Anyplace else they are used, they are not cost effective.

To supply a small house with 3600 watts (when the weather is good and the sun shines) costs over $30,000. This isn't enough power to air condition a home or do much of anything else. (It will power 36 100 watt incandescent light bulbs ... when the sun is shining and the weather good.)

If you lived up north where no a/c was needed, used propane to heat and run a refrigerator (yes you can refrigerate just using propane as the energy source), used LED lighting, had some deep discharge storage batteries, a back-up propane generator, notebook computer, etc. you might possibly be able to sort of get by with solar cells.

But cost effective? No. And being an engineering to tie it all together and keep running would be helpful.

What Are Chemoheterotrophs And How Do They Obtain Energy? Name And Describe Two Other Ways Microorganisms Obtain Energy. Why Do You Think So Many Different Ways Of Obtaining Energy Evolved?

The first forms of life developed among the organic molecules, in the oxygen free atmosphere. Hence, they presumably obtained energy by the fermentation of organic compounds. They were heterotrophs, requiring ready-made organic compounds as food.

Chemoheterotrophs
They were prokaryotic like bacteria. They were anaerobes. They must have been dependent on the organic molecules present in the broth for body building and obtaining energy.

Chemoautotrophs
They were unable to synthesize organic molecules from inorganic raw materials, with the help of chemical energy obtained by the degradation of chemical compounds present in the sea.

Photoautotrophic
The next step was to development of pigment molecules chlorophyll. It would absorb solar energy and convert it into chemical energy. This process is termed as photosynthesis. The earliest formed organisms were photoautotrophic bacteria. They were anaerobic and did not produce O2 as byproduct during photosynthesis, because they did not use water as a reagent.

Aerobic Photoautotrophs
They evolved 3300 to 3500 million years ago. They were like present day cyanobacteria and could release O2 into the atmosphere because they used water as the reagent. Thus, the whole reducing atmosphere changed to an oxidising atmosphere.

Autotrophs are said to have arisen much later in the primitive earth due to a mutation in the primitive heterotrophs. The appearance of autotrophs, particularly photo autotrophs changed the situation. The appearance of photosynthetic organisms resulted in the release of free molecular oxygen into the atmosphere gradually transforming it into an oxidizing type from the existing reducing type.

What Is The Energy Transfer In Solar Energy?
Needed By Tonight, Thanks For Any Information :-)

Solar energy is by far the Earth's most available energy source. Solar power is capable of providing many times the total current energy demand. But it is an intermittent energy source, meaning that it is not available at all times. However, it can be supplemented by thermal energy storage or another energy source, such as natural gas or hydropower.

When converted to thermal (or heat) energy, solar energy can be used to:

1. Heat water — for use in homes, buildings, or swimming pools
2. Heat spaces — inside homes, greenhouses, and other buildings

Solar energy can be converted to electricity in two ways:

1. Photovoltaic (PV devices) or “solar cells” change sunlight directly into electricity. Individual PV cells are grouped into panels and arrays of panels that can be used in a wide range of applications ranging from single small cells that charge calculator and watch batteries, to systems that power single homes, to large power plants covering many acres.
2. Concentrating Solar Power Plants generate electricity by using the heat from solar thermal collectors to heat a fluid which produces steam that is used to power the generator. Out of the 11 known concentrating solar power generating units operating in the United States at the end of 2008, 9 of these are in California, 1 in Arizona, and 1 in Nevada.
