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 homeowner to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of homeowners discover that the benefit, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or even eliminate your electrical bills

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a great return on your investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure against rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past ten years, property electrical power costs have gone up by an average of 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#4 Increase your property worth

Numerous studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes equipped 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 accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in international energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

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

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are very important parts of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to run properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and improving service results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Lots of property owners pick to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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 energy companies are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical power will be produced, and most importantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Knows The Following Solar Pv Panel?

Yes, this is BIPV solar panel which can be used as roof but can power electric power. In addition, the desity can be designed according requirement. The manufacturer is Himin solar co., Ltd

Can A Solar Panel Company Sell Carbon Credits?
I Am Looking To Rent Roof Space And Install My Own Solar Panels To Produce Power. Of Course The Power Will Be Sold To The Local Power Company, But I Am Wondering If I Can Sell Carbon Credits To Local Companies As Well. Does Anyone Have Any Info?

There are carbon brokers who specialize in trading carbon credits. Some states have higher rates than others. In the US, it is still not likely to be a profitable business model until they improve the Feed-In-Tariff policy. Some European countries are set up that it is a great way to make money. http://www.brokerscarbon.com/

Solar Panels Don'T Work When It'S Too Hot/Sunny?
Is This Fact True? - Its A Limitation To Solar Panels During Summer When It'S In Extremly Hot Countrie. I'Ve Heard It From My Science Teacher .. Please Give Detail If You Have Any And Any More Benefits/Limitations Is Welcomed .. Thank You :) !

Solar PV (photovoltaic) panels do indeed get less efficient when they heat up.

If you look at the I-V power curves on the spec sheet for these rooftop panels (PDF):

http://www.silikenusa.com/Resources/Docu...

you'll notice that they have different curves for different temperatures. But they do still produce power, certainly. I have an array on my roof, and it still manages to max out the inverter on a hot summer day. But I do notice that the top row, which is hotter due to heat rising from those below, consistently puts out a few less watts than the bottom row.

So more sun is certainly better; direct light is exactly what's needed. But hot panels due to poor air circulation or high ambient temperature does cut into efficiency.

(Solar thermal, of course, is a different story)

Why Are Solar Panels So Expensive? Isn'T That A Bad Thing?
Solar Panels Are So Expensive That People Are Not Buying Them, Because In The Long Run It Hurts Them Financially. Because Of The Expense, People Are Not Able To Go &Quot;Green&Quot;. Would'Nt It Be Smart To Make Them Less Expensive?

It would be smart, but they are very expensive to make, especially to make them big enough to produce enough electricity to light up a home or business

What Is Solar Energy Why Is It So Important Why Is It Good For Us?

Solar energy is obviously a continuous energy source as the sun is always shining. When compared to fossil fuel, which is non-renewable and pollutes, solar energy is the best alternative for energy sources. The problem at the moment is lack of efficiency as we have not been able to mimic photosynthesis to trap the energy in sunlight (photons) the way that plants have. However, research on photosynthetic solar panels is ongoing in New Zealand and should hopefully be available in coming years.
