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 daily life: running your a/c unit, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of homeowners discover that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or even eliminate your electrical bills

Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a big portion of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power expense 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 Protect against rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy prices have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or house owner with changing capital, going solar also assists you much better projection and handle your expenses.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Multiple research studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes geared up with photovoltaic 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 capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop 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 total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor 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 common residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of house owners select to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility companies are infamous for their varying and undependable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine how much electrical energy will be created, and most significantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Type Of Solar System Would I Need To Run Three Window Air Conditioners?
I Have Three 5200 Btu Air Conditioners That I Would Like To Run Strictly On Solar Power. Here Are The Specs For The Air Conditioners Which Are All The Same. Cooling Amps: 4.5; Cooling Wattage 475; Killowatt Hours Per Year 356; 110/120 Volts Remember To Multiply These Numbers By 3 Because I Have Three Running At Once For About 8 Hours Per Day, 2 Months Out Of The Year.

Hey Michael, I see you are still at it! Good for you!

The system you seek will cost you more than you will ever recover in savings by not paying for the juice. There was a company that Oboma crammed our trust into called Solyndra. Take a peak at the wiki link below and you will see some of the complications and troubles with solar panels. Nothing is free and solar panels have multiple sucking holes for your pocket book.

Every time energy is converted there is a severe loss. Here is a list of those transfer conversions:
Thought to reality being the greatest of all!
Light collection.
Light to electric.
Electric collection.
Direct current to alternating current, with cu rent regulation control.

Each air conditioner should have its own un-interuptable power supply (UPS). Each supply should be rated to handle twice what its air conditioner requires, otherwise it will not last. Give each UPS its own solar panel to refill its batteries in 4 hours. Keep a technician on retainer to keep it all clean and running.
Now you can see why a lot of people have not grabbed this brass ring. Those that do, bleed green

What Is The Most Viable Method For Using Renewable Energy?
What Is The Most Viable Method For Using Renewable Energy Resources To Totally Replace The Dependence On Fossil Fuels Is Using A Combination Of Wind And Solar Powers?

Solar is where the government is pouring the money into. It's more viable than wind simply because it's much less intrusive, not noisy and doesn't cause a disruption to the wildlife. Solar blends in.

Solar Panel Roofing?
I Need A New Roof Soon And I Was Wondering What The Difference In Cost Would Be From A Standard Shingle Roof To A Roof Including Solar Panels. Does Anyone Know The Cost Difference?

The solar panels are very expensive to provide much power. If u go that way do not skimp on the support as a high wind will blow them away. In Ecuador I put in a remote site for communications. It was working good when a Strong wind blew $10.000 worth of solar panels all over the jungle.
