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 ac system, washing clothing, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid.

Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a great return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power rates have gone up by approximately three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your home or business value

Multiple research studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

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

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that pick to operate responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The utility business are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Thermal Energy?

Thermal Energy is heat energy. There are different types. Solar could be considered thermal since you use the suns heat, there is also geothermal. This is the first type that came to mind when i saw the question. Geothermal energy is when you use the earths internal heat as an energy source. This is often used to heat water supply for homes. It is often difficult to use on large scales due to "hotspots" being inconsistent and random. They will not be widespread and you will have to go certain depths to get the same amount of energy.

How Big Should Be The Solar Cells To Power An Office Cool/Warm Water Dispenser?
I Want To Design A Solar Powered Water Dispencer And It Also Cools And/Or Warms The Water For Drinking.Is It Practical To Install A 1Square Meter Solar Cell?

I just checked our water cooler, and it has a maximum draw of 144 watts. There is a type of cooler that dumps transfers heat from the cold side to the hot side, and that might do what you want. But I would not expect boiling water for tea, just warmer than room temperature, and chilled on the other side. A solar panel of 1 square meter could do this, but you would have to charge NiMH batteries to power the compressor, as the power draw is on and off, and you would not want to waste the energy of the solar panel when the compressor is off. The reason I say NiMH is that lithium would be expensive, and any kind of lead-acid, even sealed, is inappropriate for a food appliance.

You would want to heavily insulate the hot and cold reservoirs, and I assume that warm and cool water is not a critical application, so if the sun doesn't shine or the batteries run out, there's no harm.

How Can You Use Passive Solar Energy To Save On Heating And Cooling Bills In Your Home?
Please Help! I Have A Test Coming!

On an existing home, for heating it is a simple as opening the blinds on windows during the day to let sunlight in and closing them at night to keep the heat from escaping through the glass.
To keep the home cool, keep the blinds closed on the side of the home that has the sun shinning on it. This keeps the heat out and you use less A/C to cool the home.

If Electric Cars Such As The Chevy Volt Are Successful,Do We Have Power Station Capacity To Charge Them All? ?
Can We Charge Several Million Electric Batteries Daily?? If By Chance It Works, And I Do Have Doubts, Wouldn't It Cause Massive Increase On Electrical Demand At Out Power Generation Facilities? Of Course It Would, So My Real Question Is Can We Handle It Without A Massive Infusion Of Cash Into Building New Power Plants? Sounds Like Building Dams Would Drive Environmentalists Absolutely Crazy. Some Hard Decisions Must Be Made On Our Energy Choices By The Way- I Would Probably Buy At Least One Electric Car For The Family If The Economics Work Out.

No one has talked about the cost of electricity to consumers from charging these cars or the fact that electrical generation requires energy too - of which many sources are not green. The car may not have emissions but the coal-fired plant generating electricity does.

Since the car will be more expensive than a conventional car and there is a cost in the form of your electric bill, I'm not convinced the economics work out or that the vehicle is as green as billed unless we really ramp up solar and wind power.

There is no free lunch. I waited to buy my hybrid until it was proven technology and I was able to get a really good rebate on the vehicle from the manufacturer to offset some of the additional costs.
