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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, many residents find that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or perhaps eliminate your electrical bills

Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large 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 do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Make a terrific return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or property owner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and handle your expenses.

Numerous studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped with solar 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 part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, 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 nation. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a terrific method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will remove three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

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

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

Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes 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 energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can determine how much electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

How To Build A Model Of A Passive Solar Heating House?
For Science Class Ww Have To Build A Passive Solar Heating Model House And It Must Also Have Good Insulation. I Dont Understand How U Can Make The House Run On Solar Energy. My Science Teacher Is Givin 20 Bucks To The Best Model. I Can Use Any Materials, Besides Things Like Solar Panels Or Course. How Should I Start? Ill Work On The Scaling Later...

One thing you can do is mass thermal heating. That would be having a southern exposure to the sun with a lot of windows. You would tile the floor and a solid wall like stone or block for the sun to warm.

How Is Solar Energy Created?
Science

The answers reflect the fact that the question is rather broad.
The prime source of solar energy is the fusion reaction in the sun.
If by "created" you mean converted to to a more usable form:
There are two main methods that people use to convert solar radiation to other forms of energy. One is the photovoltaic effect which is used to generate electricity directly. The other is the thermal method detailed by Kathryn L, which in its simplest form is residential solar heating panels (or black-painted barrels, even), but also can use more complex apparatus such as focusing sunlight to a concentrated beam to boil a liquid, producing mechanical power which may be used to generate electric power.
Additionally there are numerous methods nature uses, including conversion via heat to wind and hydropower, and from wind to waves, etc.; and conversion via photosynthesis to chemical energy. (Note waves are distinct from tides, which do not derive from solar radiation.)

Suggestions For A Dyi Solar Home Heat?
Would Like To Be Able To Use Solar Power To Help Heat Our House. Any Suggestions On How To Do This? Thanks

There are many books on the subject.
There is google search and youtube.

By solar power do you mean electrical power? That is not an efficient way to heat because heat always requires a lot of juice. Look into passive solar. There is a lot to that subject. Such as planting deciduous trees on the South and West side. In summer leaves block the sun from heating up your exterior walls, in winter the leaves fall off, allowing the sun to warm them.

There are many ways of using the earth to regulate the temperature because 6' down it is always a constant 54 degrees. People run a pipe underground, use solar panels to charge batteries to run a fan to pump air through the pipes and into the house.

You can line up black-painted water barrels to soak up the sun and run that warm water through radiators inside the house.

Lots of things you can do.

How Should Individuals Promote Solar Energy?
I Would Like To Run All The Power In My House With Solar Energy. How Would I Go About Doing That?

First, be prepared to spend more money for the solar system than you will recover in reduced utility bills. My combined gas and electric bill averaged about $1,400 a year. I had a 6kw photovoltaic system put in. After rebates it cost me about $40,000. I now have an annual utility bill of $170. So I am recovering my investment at about $1,230 per year. My homeowners insurance went up too, so the savings is several hundred dollars less. If I had invested the $40,000 at 5% interest, it would bring back $2,000 per year!

I do hope to recover a bit more when I sell the house, but will never know how much it added to the selling price.

Secondly, I hope you can install a system. It is of tremendous benefit to the environment.

Before you spend any money on equipment or installation, learn all you can. See if any of the solar distributors in your area hold classes or seminars on the subject. Also your educational institutions. Work the internet. Keep records of what you learn. Talk to folks who have solar systems.

One thing most people don't consider is the roof. I had mine installed over the garage and an overhang. I didn't want a bunch of penetrations of the roof over the attic. A leak over the garage is a nuisance. Over the attic it is a nightmare. Sure enough I have had one small leak. Also if the existing roof will be in need of replacement soon, it might be bes to wait and do both at once. Removal of the solar system and putting it back will add considerably to the roofing cost.
