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 dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of residents discover that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably minimize or even remove your electrical bills

Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can make up a big part of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial 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 electricity costs savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity rates have actually gone up by an average of three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar also assists you better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Numerous studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate changes in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend 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 terrific method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal property 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 dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to operate responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- 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 energy business are well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can compute just how much electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The Average Amount Of Equity That My Home Can Potentially Gain If I Install Solar Panels On It.?
I'M Thinking About Installing Solar Panels On My Home But I'M Curious To Know What Would Be A Ball Park Amount Of Equity My Home Could Gain.

I am in Ontario, and I asked a real estate agent about that as I was seriously looking into adding this to my new home. Right now in my area, solar panels will not increase the value of the home. People are just not ready to pay extra for a house for this yet here, so if you are doing solar for resale, you will be loosing a good $20,000. Look into wind turbines...much more efficient, but a bet more expensive here.

How Could You Decide Whether A House Has Active Solar Heating Or A Passive Solar Heating When Looking At The?
Outside Of A House? Please Explain

Hey Michael, once you understand the difference in the two, you'll be able to tell easily, I'll explain. Passive solar is not a type of device, or a system of any kind, it is a design feature in the house itself. This is where windows, skylights or light tubes are located on the home in such a way that allows natural sunlight to penetrate deep into the home for lighting and heating. There are no wires, plumbing, or other mechanical features to passive solar, just the location of the windows and other openings in the house, and how shading is managed with trees or overhangs. Active solar is easy to see because of the, "Activity," that is involved in it. You might see panels, absorbers, boxes or other devices located on the roof or in the yard that face the sun. These will have wiring or plumbing connecting them to the home and an, "activity," such as pumping or active circuits will make them work. This is where the name active solar comes from. What you can't always tell from seeing these things on the outside of a home is what type of solar power is being harnessed. A solar water heater might look just like a photovoltaic panel, but one produces hot water, the other electricity. We have both at our home, they look very much alike. We also have passive solar heat, which is nothing more than south facing windows that reach down 4 feet below our 2 foot overhangs. This allows full sun onto the living room floor in the winter,but none in the summer due to the suns angle changing with the seasons. To the untrained eye however, it just appears to be a window. Hope this makes sense. Take care, Rudydoo

Do You Think That The Reason So Many Small European Countries Have Successful Socialism Is Because Of ....?
The Fact That They Are So Small? That Maybe, Socialism Does Not Work In A Nation As Big And Varied As The Usa? Do You Think That If We Decentralized The Federal Government Back To The Individual States And Allowed The Citizens Of Each Of Those State Be More Socialist In Their Programs Or More Conservative In Their Approach....We Would All Have The Choice Of The Type Of Society We Prefer To Live In? Rather Than Having A Central Elite Ruling Class Of 536 Americans That Dictate How All 311,000,000 Of Us Must Live Our Lives? I Think That Is What Our Founders Had In Mind.....In The First Place. Thanks If You Bother To Read And Answer. All Respectful Answers, No Matter The Content, Are Appreciated.

Rather than a simple economic issue, this is a matter of national defense. Just as industry found it unprofitable to build the Interstate Highway System, government must again finance new infrastructure.

For security, we need a smart grid and a nationwide power and communication network buried completely underground. For energy independence that will get us out of the Mid-East, we need homes with near-perfect insulation, solar panels, and geothermal wells. To battery-power our entire automobile fleet, we need dozens of safe, thorium-based nuclear power plants. And to eliminate the long-haul truck and air traffic that uses a major portion of our energy and our highway and airport maintenance expense, we need a network of efficient maglev freight and passenger trains zipping through low-pressure tubes faster than a jet plane.

Who says we can’t finance infrastructure? Bond holders are paying us to keep their money safe at a negative real (inflation-adjusted) interest rate. And we can buy bonds ourselves, as we did during WW II. And money can be generated on computer keyboards, as the Fed is doing for banks.

How much can we afford to spend annually on infrastructure? According to the Congressional Budget Office, $1T of annual government spending on infrastructure hires about 20 million unemployed and induces about $1.5T of consumer spending and $0.15T of consumer savings. If industry likes that growth enough to annually borrow and invest $0.5T, the total annual spending would increase to $3T. And the GDP growth rate would reach 20% and ensure low interest rates.

So what would be the annual deficit? Zero! In fact, we could actually reduce the debt by spending $1T annually on infrastructure. First, we would employ twenty million jobless workers, each of whom would stop drawing the equivalent of $25,000 in annual relief benefits of all kinds. Also, the improved infrastructure would produce at least an annual 1% productivity increase. With tax revenue at federal and state levels increasing with GDP, the federal budget gets a boost:

Reduced unemployment benefits = $25K benefits x 20 million people = $0.50T
Productivity improvement = 1% x $15T+ economy = $0.15T
Federal tax revenue increase = $3T increased spending x 20% = $0.60T
Reduced federal aid to states = $3T increased spending x 5% = $0.15T
Total annual budget gain = $1.40T
Less cost of stimulus - $1.00T
Net debt reduction = $0.40T = $400B

A small government cannot build the world’s greatest infrastructure.
Without the world’s greatest infrastructure, we will not have the world’s greatest industrial base.
Without the world’s greatest industrial base, we will not have the world’s greatest defense.
Without the world’s greatest defense, our nation will be in jeopardy.
A small government is the road to serfdom.
A small government would betray those who died for our freedom.
The traitors demanding a small government deserve scorn, if not execution.


How Much Watt I Need In A Solar Panel To Charge A Car Battery?
Im Trying To Save Money, So Io Have A 8000W Inverter 16000W Max, And I Wnat To Connect A Car Battery, But I Need A Solar Panel To Charger It, But I Dont Know How Much Watts I Need To Buy The Solar Panel, To Charge The Battery, Theres A Lot Of Solar Panel On Ebay, Where Is Im Trying To Buy, So Help Me Out, So This Proyect Its For Get Free Energy And Dont Pay Enargy Bill

A single battery won't last you very long. You'll want a bank of many batteries connected in parallel. Also, you'll want to use deep-cycle batteries that can be drawn down and recharged. Car batteries are not designed for this type of use and will not last long.

You will want to calculate your average energy consumption. You can use your utility bill to see how many KWh of electricity you use and make sure you have some reserve. You will likely need a fairly substantial array of solar panels if you want to run the house independently of the power grid. For example, our small house uses about 200 kWh of electricity per month. That's an average draw of 280 watts. If we assume the solar panels produce about 80% of their rated output for about 6 hours per day, (accounting for times the sun is not directly aimed at the panels) that would require about 1500 watts of solar panels just to maintain the average draw. There's also some loss in the inverter.

Your plan is a noble one but you are looking at some substantial expense and effort.

How Would You Make A Solar Heater For A Garage Using Reclaimed Materials?
My Mom'S Garage Has A Back Room - And Once Upon A Time It Had A Furnace In There So It'S Insulated. She Decided To Turn It Into An Office. Anyhow, In Order To Use It A Few More Months Of The Year, It Could Use Some Heat, Or Rather Additional Heat (An Electric Oil Heater Is Being Used Now). So If I Can Find A Simple Enough Schematic, I Thought I Might Make Something For Christmas: If I Spent My Money She Would Have A Fit. Thanks

I've seen designs which use a 4 X 8 or smaller panel of 1/2" Exterior plywood with 2 X 4 or 2 X 6 inch sides (painted or exterior grade wood)....make a box out of it and snake a tube of 4 or 5 inch diameter aluminum flexible ductwork back and forth through the box and cover the box with old storm windows or full-length storm door glass, picture window glass, plexiglass, etc... Paint the interior of the box and ductwork with black or brown paint to absorb more heat. Cut an opening at the top and bottom of the box for the ductwork to draw in air from the garage and exhaust hot air back in. Mount the box on the south side of the garage to capture sunlight. Caulk any seams where the ductwork goes from the box through the garage walls and seal the glass to the box to prevent any hot air from escaping. Use a small duct fan or similar to draw the hot air from the top outlet or exhaust of the box into the garage. Convection alone will draw in cooler air at the bottom and force it out the top or exhaust but not very forcefully...yet if the unit fan is turned off, it will still produce some heat.On sunny days, this design can have temp rises of 30-40 degrees...some large designs up to 60 degrees temp rise ...a bigger box design than a smaller one will put out more heat.

Some designs use old soda cans with the ends cut open rather than flex ductwork and others use foil backed insulation boards inside the box to reflect heat.
