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 daily life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing 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 considerable, lots of home owners find that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly decrease and even remove your electric costs

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy 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 don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility costs and you'll still conserve a lot of money.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy costs savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy rates have increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your expenses.

#4 Increase your home worth

Numerous studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively 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, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

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

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks 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 growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a great way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are essential parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer getting choices, developing goodwill and improving business outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just 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 business are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic math, we can calculate just how much electrical power will be generated, and most significantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Financing

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can I Live Off Grid Without Solar Panels Or Wind Generators? And No Septic Systems For Sewage?
It'S For A Physics Project

How about a hydro power system. A stream, diversion, penstock, and a turbine. Thats how the old miners did it.

A House Uses Solar Energy To Produce Hot Water..?
Fig 4.1 Of Question Four In The Link Below Shows Solar Equipment Placed On Top Of A House That Uses Solar Energy To Produce Hot Water. 1. Explain Why The Solar Collector Has A Black Base. 2. State And Explain Why The Hot Water In The Solar Collector Travels To The Hot Water Tank. 3. The Figure Does Not Show Any Insulation. A. Explain The Importance Of Insulating The Hot-Water Tank. B. Explain How The Hot Water Tank Is Insulated. Http://Www.Dpe.Edu.Mv/Dpe/Downloads/Data/Pp/862Febd35277bd87708fadc8cb974165.Pdf

1.It is black because the color black absorbs all the light photons. If it were white, it would reflect all the photons away and won't heat the water much.
2.The water travels to the tanks because warm water is less dense than cold water and rises. This is not true with ice tho. Ice is less dense than warm water but it is in another phase. Warm water is less dense than cool water only if water is in liquid phase.
3.a)Water may be a good heat sink(stores heat well) heat will escape the tank if the tank is not properly insulated. As heat escapes the water in the tank cools therefore making the solar energy less efficient.
b)Possible ways of insulating the tank is to have the tank made out of some bad conducting medal(insulator) I can't think of any bad conducting medal but copper, silver, tin, aluminum are very conductive and would make bad insulators. You don't even need to have the tank made out of medal. Anything that is hard and durable with low conductance will do. Like a thermostat. The inner part of the thermos is made out of a low conducting medal. Middle layer is usually plastic or Styrofoam because those are good insulators.

Hope this is clear and helpful.

What Else Do I Need Besides A Solar Panel To Power A Household Appliance Or Two With Solar Energy?
I Am Guessing Other Parts Are Needed. I Am Just Trying To Power A Small Space Heater In The Winter And A Regular Fan In The Summer. Any Specifics As To A Good Brand Would Be Appreciated. Thank You In Advance.

A lot of people are now advancing the alimony and salvation of electricity by using solar panels in their houses to be more profitable in using electricity. This is the new method of generating power source applied by machineries like refrigerator, fluorescent lights, appliances, among others.

Solar energy panels have 2 base types of solar heat collection, with solar cells and solar collectors. Solar cells or otherwise known as photovoltaic cells is what compensates a solar panel. The word ‘photovoltaic’ comes from two etymological words photo which implies light and voltaic which means electricity, this is why the definition of solar panels is that it is a tool that gets electricity with the aid of natural light from the sun.

How Solar Energy Tranfered To A Device. Does Solar Generates Ac To Dc Currents ?

First, most think of solar generation when created from Photo Voltaic Cells. These would generate DC.

Second, any device that is MOVED by solar energy would generate AC. This includes Hydro-electric, Wind Mills, Tidal electric generation

Energy from Solar power can be transferred or stored in a number of ways.

- Convert to hydrogen through electrolysis, using electrical power that was generated. The hydrogen product would then be transported and sold like any other fuel.

- Electric transmission lines. Where ever these solar devices are, the AC electric energy can be DUMPED on the grid. A great deal may be lost in transmission, but this would be a cheap way to deliver the energy.

Solar power is the only energy that we can use that does not cause air pollution or cause global warming. It won't be cheap. But every community should have localized solar energy production so generation is decentralized.

Conservation Of Energy In Nature?
Physics Project, What Is An Example Of Conservation Of Energy In Nature? Without Man Made Objects Or Humans Thank U!

Solar energy converted to chemical energy through photosynthesis in plants. Some of that is conerted to heat.

Plant chemical energy used for plant growth, but if an animal comes around and eats the plant, the plant becomes chemical energy for the animal.

The animal uses chemical energy for keeping its body temperature at a certain level, and also for cellular reproduction and growth.



Example two:

A river flowing at a high speed goes down a waterfall, transfering potential energy to kinetic energy. Some of that energy is lost as heat during the water's collision.
