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.

"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 home owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, numerous home owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably minimize and even remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can make up a big portion of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle.

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses

One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy prices have increased by approximately 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or property owner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your costs.

Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks 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 development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical property solar panel system will get rid of 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer buying decisions, producing goodwill and improving company results.

#9 Start Conserving 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 money down.

Many property owners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do Solar Panels Work?
I Am Thinking Of Installing Solar Panels On The Roof Of My Building In New York State. Give Appropriate Details Associated With Solar Panels. Any Info Will Be Appreciated. Thanks :)

Solar panels are better for the environment than your wallet. If you want to install them yourself, then it might be a very economical option for your power needs. Professional installation can be quite pricey. Check out http://www.monofuel.com for more information on installing solar panels yourself.

Solar Panel Efficiency?
200 Watt Solar Panel Generates How Much Watts Of Electricity Per Month?

I've operated a 25 kilowatt (kw) solar panel system for two years (144 panels, rated at 190 watts each, just about like yours). It averages 110 kilowatt hours (kwh) per day, but clear days get about 160 kwh. My system generates about 3300 kwh per month (we dump directly to grid), worth about $4,000 per year. Payback for my system, which cost $100,000 (after utility rebates and tax credits), is 25 years (the expected lifetime, coincidentally). Under similar conditions, your 200 watt solar panel would average 820 watt-hours per day, or about 25 kwh per month, worth $2.50.

Solar Panels Required, Good Idea Or Not?
If All New Homes Were Required To Have Solar Panels Installed When Built, Can You Imagine The Money Savings To The Homeowner And The Less Need Of The Outside Power Plants And The Environment Wins Too. Susie Harrison And Her Two Daughters’ Favorite Color These Days Is Green. That’S Because Her New Environmentally Friendly Home On The East Side Will Be A Model Of Energy Efficiency. Last Week, Solar Photovoltaic Panels Were Put On The Roof Of The Helen Street House Being Built By The Sound Coalition And Habitat For Humanity Of Coastal Fairfield County. The 14 Solar Panels Installed Are Capable Of Generating 3 Kilowatts Of Electricity During Daylight Hours And Will Deliver Most Of The Family’S Daily Electrical Needs. When Harrison’S Home Doesn’T Need The Power, It Will Flow Back To The Supplier Grid And Serve The Rest Of The Neighborhood. Http://Www.Greenmadesimple.Com/Projects/Details/Solar-Panels-Habitat-Home-Will-Bring-Future-Energy-Savings

The main drawback to solar panels is the cost. They are thousands of dollars and the amortized cost is still high. As an example. If the solar panels installed cost $2,000. Which would not surprise me. At 3 KW per day and the electric company charges 15 cents per KW.

It takes over 12 years just recoup your investment. There are much less expensive ways to go green. If every house had a Radiant Barrier as an example http://www.radiosity3000.com/ it lowers a summer cooling bill by 15- 20%. The initial cost is less and it amortizes in about 3 years.

Why Isn'T America Able To Produce Solar Panels Now That China Is Doing It Much Cheaper?
Obamas So Called &Quot;Green Jobs&Quot; Are In China Now. You Libs Happy?

I would just love for anyone to show me that Solar panels that actually produce substantial amounts of energy, besides the hype that goes along with them. I want actual Science articles from noted Scientists that prove without a doubt, that solar energy is the most efficient means of producing enough energy to make a difference in creating heat and electricity in our homes and or businesses. Wind energy seems to be a big disappointment as well and doesn't yield any magnificent breakthroughs, as far as saving any consumer money in energy savings.Let me get on the Global warming bandwagon and we can ride through all these fallacies about what is real and hoaxes together.Sad thing about hoaxes they are just made up to create hope, and end up creating disappointment instead....................................

How Many Watts Does A Small Solar Panel Need To Work?
My Friend And I Are Conducting An Expirement And We Need To Know How Many Watts Are Needed To Power A Solar Panel Please Answer Now!!

You've got the question backwards. The power output of the solar panel is rated in watts. So you need to determine how many watts are needed to run the equipment you want powered with the solar panel, then you can decide what size solar panel you need. You can buy panels here - http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Pan...

Or are you trying to power the solar panel with a lightbulb instead of the sun, and you're asking how many watts the lightbulb needs to be?

What is your experiment, maybe we can help?
