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 house owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of homeowners find that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically minimize or perhaps eliminate your electrical expenses

Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can make up a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of money.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy bill cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off 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 capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power rates have actually gone up by an average of three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and manage your expenses.

#4 Increase your home or business worth

Numerous studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties 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 a key part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate changes in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general 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 United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a fantastic way to decrease 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 typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that pick to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer buying choices, developing goodwill and improving service 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 loan down.

Lots of house owners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy business are infamous for their varying and undependable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and basic math, we can determine how much electricity will be created, and most importantly, at what rate, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Can A Solar Power Configured With The Following Specification Run E.G Tv, Microwave Etc?.?
If It Does Carry A Lot Of Household Appliances How Many Sunny Days Will It Require To Charge? How Many Hours Will This Home Appliances Work? Kit Contents 1 X 80W Solar Panel 1 X 85Ah Deep Cycle Battery 1 X Inv1000 - 1000Watt Inverter 1 X Waterproof Battery Box 1 X Stspr10 – 12Ah Charge Controller 1 X Aluminium Solar Panel Stand 1 X 20M Cable Bundle 1 X Power Rcd Socket 1 X Connectors, Fuses And Terminals 1 X Detailed User Manual

The short answer is yes, with reservations.
Take the worst case you mention, the microwave oven.
Here I assume a 240 Volt supply from the inverter, if 110V the situation is even worse.
I'll also assume the microwave consumes (say) 750 Watts of power.
I also have to assume a 12 Volt battery.
Disregarding losses all through, it goes like this:
Your battery capacity is 85 Ah.
The microwave will need 3.125 Amperes at 240V. for full power.
Thus the battery will need to supply 20 x 3.125 or 62.5 Amperes.
Thus the battery, without further charging, would run the microwave for 1.36 Hours only.
Your solar cell supplies 80W., and if the voltage is 12, the max. current it will supply the battery is 6.6 Amperes. It would take 12 hours (plus) to fully charge the battery (it would/ should never be flattened).
So the reservation is how much charge time is available, and how much you wish to use high- draw appliances.
A careful selection of a TV set could give you plenty of viewing time, however!

Could I Power My Christmas Lights With Solar Without Having Rooftop Solar Panels ?

Sure why not? You just need them to charge some form of battery that will run the lights at night, which means you need to be using low voltage lighting. You just need to factor in the lighting demand and the voltage requirement for the lights and be sure to get the appropriate solar panels and rechargable type batteries to match your needs and place it in a position that gets the optimum amount of sun in the winter (when the lights are going to be used) and using either a weather tight junction or solder and shrink tube the connection from the first stringers to the solar panel (this means cutting off the transformer plug).

Overall,.........its probably going to cost more then to just use electricity by having to purchase the panels and appropriate batteries and any materials needed to convert. If you are about "going green" then I understand.

Are Solar Panels Made Of Different Materials Depending On Area?
Are Solar Panels Made Different If You Live In The North With A Lot Of Snow And Very Little Sunlight Or In The South With High Humidity And Sunlight Throughout The Year?

I think no. materials for the solar panel is same for whole but the solar cell may vary

If You Can Think Of Anything More That Would Be Needed Or If Something Wont Work. Thank You.

There are many factors used to calculte the energy and the best sized system for not just your needs but also your budget and for payback.

Most importantly is how many maximum KiloWatt hours do you need per day as well as how many *average* KiloWatt hours do you need per day. This can be found on your electric bill. A typical household uses 30,000 KWh per day which translates to a 3KW solar panel system of (12) 250W solar panels with an average of 10 hours of sunlight.

I would recommend grid tied initially and you can go for batteries later. Just have a professional install it or you won't get the tax credits from the State and the Fed.

Also make sure that you don't pay more than $2 per watt for the panels (lowest prices are below $1 per watt for quantity) and no more than $1 per watt for the inverter (lowest prices are below $0.50 per watt).

How Power Is Produced By Solar Panels? What Is The Cost Of A Solar Panel? Can I Really Save Enough Money?

Solar panels convert light energy into electricity via electro-chemical means.

Getting solar panels installed typically costs between $7,000 and $12,000 per kW of capacity. How much money you can save will depend on where you live and how much to pay for electricity.

There is a calculator called PV Watts that can give you a real good estimate of how much you would save on electricity bills here:
http://rredc.nrel.gov/solar/codes_algs/P...
just pick the location closest to you (it may not be in the same state) and enter the size of system you want to install (or try a few different ones) and if you put in your $/kWh (from your electric bill) it will even give you the answer in dollars.

If you are in New Jersey or California, there also are some great incentive programs to help lower the installation costs.

Calling a local PV installer is also a good way to get more locally specific info.
