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 house owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many property owners find that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically decrease or even eliminate your electrical expenses

Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Make a terrific return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight 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 ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have increased by an average of three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or house owner with changing capital, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your residential or commercial property worth

Numerous research studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard 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 typical property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that choose to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of customer getting choices, creating goodwill and improving business results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many property owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier 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 well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

What Types Solar Cells Are Better For Use In Solar Panels?
Amorphous Cells, Polycrystalline Cells, Single-Cell Solar Cells

They are too expensive ,and the pay out will probably not be very good. Note of caution !! mount them very sturdy as they have a lot of surface so a little wind can tare them up.

Ways We Turn Solar Into Energy We Use?
How Do We Turn Solar Energy Into Energy

You can turn light energy directly into electrical energy by using photovoltaic cells (solar panels). These are what satellites in Earth orbit use, with those big flat panels.

You can also use sunlight to heat water to turn a turbine. This is how some solar power plants out in Arizona does it-- An array of mirrors focus sunlight onto one spot on a heating tower where water is boiled by the concentrated sunlight. The steam is used to turn a turbine to turn a generator to produce electricity.

Those are the two most common that I can think of.

What Is The Best Solar Panel Charger For Laptop?
Please Provide Links.

An excellent option is the Powertraveller Solargorilla solar charger designed to work with laptops. You can increase your charging options further when the Solargorilla is used with the Powertraveller Powergorilla portable charger. You can connect the solar panels directly to your laptop, but it is more efficient to use the Solargorilla to charge the Powergorilla and then connect the Powergorilla to your laptop.

Here are links to both the Solargorilla and Powergorilla portable chargers with detailed product information:

How Can I Run My House Purely Off Of Solar Panels?
Im Trying To Run My House With With Solar Panels, Is It Possible? If So Please Let Me Know How.... I Have A 16000 W Inverter

No, because you have night time usage and cloudy days where you could not produce any electricity. However you could obtain all power from solar panels and then store energy for these times, but you can't do so economically.

First you would have to determine what is the minimal amount of solar insolation that your house receives. This would probably be in December in the Northern Hemisphere. Then you need to consider how many cloudy days and how much night time usage you need to consider for energy storage. Then you need to consider how much of an extra energy buffer you need to build into the system.

Finally you will be faced with the reality that you could be paying 3 or 4 times more for a system to satisfy 100% of your needs than you would for a system that could for-fill 80% of your needs.

In the summer you would be producing far more electricity than you could use or practically store. Eventually we will have batteries that can store energy in a stable chemistry over a very long period of time. These heat batteries might be such an example: http://www.solarthermalmagazine.com/2010...

Why Isn'T Tesla'S Unlimited Energy Solution Being Used Today?
I Found Out Today That Nikola Tesla Invented A Free Unlimited Source Of Energy Using Our Atmosphere. Why Isn'T It Being Used.. It Would Change This World In Every Way.

Hey Chris, Homer is correct in that the device you speak of does not extract free energy from thin air. It has been called the Tesla Coil, Tesla Generator, and lately the Tesla Unlimited Energy Device. The device is a receiver. What Tesla was trying to get at was that energy can be pumped into both the earth and the atmosphere, transmitted over long distances and picked back up at the receiver to be used for whatever purposes were desired. This free energy has to be produced and put into the atmosphere first, purportedly by a power company. It isn't free, but the problem is it can be pirated at any location with the use of another Tesla Coil, which means less of it is now available for the receiving coil that may have been originally built to receive the energy in the first place. It's like a bank using a high power cannon to blast dollar bills into the air that are carried on the wind until someone on a tall hill reaches up and grabs them as they drift by. It isn't free money, it's the banks, and they're going to want someone to pay for it. The dollar bills do not occur naturally as a result of atmospheric movement, they have to be put there first, same as Teslas free energy.

Well in the end, we do transmit energy over long distances, with the use of a wire, and then anyone willing to pay for some of it can hook their wire to the long wire with a meter to keep track of how much they are using so the electric company can pay their bills too. You don't have to get your power from them however, we don't. Our home generates its power from the wind and sun, now that is free energy. While solar photovoltiac panels have only been around 50 years or so, wind power dates back to the 3rd century, even before Tesla showed up with his building sized lightning producing hairbrush. You don't have to be a physicist to make a wind turbine or a solar panel work either, we put ours in ourselves 10 years ago and it still works fine today.

UFOTV.com has an interesting video on this Tesla Unlimited Free Energy, how anyone can build a receivier and extract energy from the atmosphere for free. They are also publishers of videos and MP3 downloads on such proven scientific endeavors as, "Inside the Alien Mind," and, "Unknown UFO's today." If that's the source of your research, check and see if you can finish their latest MP3 download before the next ship lands in the desert. I found it interesting that this Tesla device can be built with common substances and ordinary tools by anyone handy, while at the same time claiming the notes on its construction were somehow mysteriously absconded with. If we don't have the notes, how do we know what the thing is made out of?

If you want to learn more about Tesla energy transmission, check out Wikipedia, or physicsforums.com, they have a pretty good discussion on the system and how it actually works. If you want free energy instead, check out solar and wind at some of the sources below, we did years ago, it's how we got to where we are today. Good luck Chris, and take care, Rudydoo
