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 a/c, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, many homeowners discover that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower or perhaps remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of money.

#2 Make a terrific return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy costs 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 Protect against increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past ten years, domestic electrical energy rates have gone up by an average of 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or property owner with changing capital, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your home value

Several studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups 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 geared up with solar 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 component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

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

#7 Protect the environment

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

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are crucial parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that opt to operate properly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer getting decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of house owners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy companies are notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine how much electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Seeking Advice On Careers In Environmental Studies.
I Just Graduated With A 4 Year Under Graduate Degree In Education And Am Certified To Teach Grades 1-6. However, Currently I Am Truly Interested In Pursuing A Masters Degree In Environmental Studies Of Some Sort. Does Anyone Know What Sort Of Careers Would Compliment Well With My Current Degree? What Are Some Interesting Types Of Careers That Exist In This New "Green Collar" Spectrum And Where Can I Get More Information? Thank You!

OOO perfect position to become a solar panel technician. Imagine you being a contractor! In 5 or 10 years as a contractor you could be making soo much money you could retire.

Here are some ideas, that would require overhead but they are great and profitable green ideas

making seaweed, soy, alge into the new plastic- a plastic. A biodegradable plastic.

figuring out a way to use bamboo, onion and garlic peel as the new paper. That would be carbon neutral. This is light color so bleaching is not essential and of course no wood!

you have already beat the odds, you can do it!

What Laws Or City Codes Must I Be Aware Of When Placing An Rv On A Plot Of Land?
Okay, I'M A College Student And An Extreme Penny Pincher. I Plan To Move Out Of The House Soon, And I Want To Do So By Bying A Random Small, Cheap Piece Of Land (I'Ve Seen A .14 Acre Go For Under 5K) And Buying A Cheap, But Decent Looking Travel Trailer (You Can Get One For A Couple Grand On Ebay). The Problem Is That I Don'T Know If I Can Just Simply Place The Rv On That Plot Of Land And Call It A Day, Or If I Need To Adhere To Certain City Codes. I Can Make My Own Supply Of Electricity. I Can Make Solar Panels And Wind Generators. Plus I'Ll Spend Most Of My Day At School Or Work So I'Ll Rarely Be Home, And Therefore, Use Very Little Power. As For Water, I Can Make Rain Catching Devices, Not To Mention I Get A Free Membership At My Gym, Where I Can Shower At If The Rv'S Shower Doesn'T Work Out. How Do I Turn My Plan Into Action Without Being Harrassed By The Gov'T?

It is illegal almost everywhere.

First you would need to make sure the land is zoned for a RV, then you get a permit and pay to hook into the sewer lines and water lines. You will HAVE to look into them, if you use them or not. You will need a permit for the solar panels as well. It will be impossible to get a permit for a wind generator on a tiny patch of dirt like that. Normally you require at least 100, and you have to pay for all of the environmental studies, etc before you can even put one there.

What Is The Cheapest Way To Build Solar Panels? Is It Worth It?

Well, the first thing is to check out all options. Here is an excellent place to start, but it takes time and patience and a willingness to learn - http://diysolarpanelsfordummies.blogspot.com/

Are Solar Panels A Reliable Source Of Energy, Cost Efficient?
I'M Looking To Install Solar For Helpwith My Utilities. An 6.6Kw System For 4400.00 Which They Say Will Do Aprox 67% Of My Bill Or A 9Kw That Will Do Aprox 78% For 5500.00. I Live In Ca. That Includes The Rebates. Can They Be Bargaind With? It Seams A Little High. Thanks N Lj

$4400 seems very low, unless subsidies involved. If it is a good system, and the calculations are accurate, it sounds great deal as long as you save more than about $60-70 a month. Your payout for the system will break even in less than 10 years, and you will help the environment.

Is There A Way To Recharge A Rechargeable Battery With A ......?
Is There A Way To Recharge A Rechargeable Battery With A Solar Panel From A Calculator

If you hook up your solar panel in parallel with the battery, the battery will charge when the solar panel's voltage is greater than your battery.

If a cloud comes by and your solar panel's voltage drops, your battery will see the panel as a load and try and "charge" the panel.

Put a diode in there to only allow current to flow into the battery. The diode will want 0.7 V, so your solar panel must be larger than your battery + 0.7V.

One problem is you may need a lot of solar panels (in parallel) because the battery may be seen as a large load.

Your concept is reasonable because "charging a battery" just means you are pushing energy into the battery.

Whole houses are ran off of solar cells. If you charge a battery in your solar house, aren't you charging the battery via solar panels?

The gotcha is you may need more solar panels than you would expect.
