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 everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, many property owners find that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically lower or perhaps remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a property owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big part of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.

#2 Make an excellent return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy expense savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power prices have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or house owner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar likewise assists you better projection and manage your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home worth

Numerous studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is an excellent method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Show your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that pick to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer getting decisions, developing goodwill and improving organisation results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many property owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility business are well-known for their varying and unreliable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward trend.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be generated, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The Best Low Power Alternative For Tv Set, To Use As Screen For Dvd Player, With A 30Watt Solar Panel?
Due To Erratic Power Cuts In My Area I Want To Make Up By Using A 30Watt Solar Panel. My Decoder Is 30Watt But My Tv Is 70W. I Need Something Small. I Don'T Have Problem With Sound. Just Picture.

Hey ?, Classics is on the right track, but his numbers are big for what you want to do. The real shortcoming in your plan is trying to run electronics on solar directly. For that, you really do need a battery and inverter, or a battery and a DC powered TV, like you might put in the car or camper. If it were me, I would go simpler. A 12 volt deep cycle battery, like you might use to run a marine electric trolling motor can run a 500 watt inverter, with a small TV and decoder plugged in for several hours. Now, if you want to go solar, you can get a small solar panel, maybe 30 or 40 watts, and connect it to the battery. What might be easier is just using an automotive battery charger to recharge the battery when the power is on, then the battery will be available for when the power is off. An inverter with those two things plugged in might be using 5 to 7 amps when they are running. A deep cycle marine battery might hold from 50 to 80 amp hours. A 70 amp hour would theoretically run your setup for 10 hours, but in actual practice, you can only get to about 2/3s of the battery before the inverter shuts off, so maybe 7 hours.

A 500 watt inverter might cost $50 - $60 at a truck stop, auto parts store or RV supply place. The battery, you might have one hanging around, or you can buy them for $60 or $70. You can always add the panel later. If you decide to go with a panel, make sure it does not have over about 40 watts, and it needs to have a diode installed in the junction box on the back. If there is no diode, or the wattage is over 40, you'll need a charge controller. The controller does 2 things, keeps the battery from overcharging in the daytime, and keeps the battery from back feeding the panel at night. A diode keeps the electricity from flowing backwards, and if you panel is less than 40 watts, it shouldn't peak out at any more than 2.5 amps. It's almost impossible to overcharge a battery of 50 or more amp hours with that amount of current. If you want to understand this better, get a copy of Richard Perez's book at the library and read the chapters on lead acid batteries. If you are really serious about solar, get a sub to Home Power Magazine. We did 13 years ago, now our home is completely powered by the wind and sun, and we use the utilitiy as our backup. Solar does work, it has worked at our place for 11 years now. Take care, Rudydoo

Anologys! How Is A Cell Like A Country?
Ok. Tell Me If This Sounds Good! Cell Wall - The Govorment,Military Cell Membrane - Boarder Guards Nucleus - The White House Ribosomes - Factories Vacuoles - Water Towers Mitochondria - Power Plants And What Would These Be? Cytoplasm? Chloroplasts? Thank You!!! 10 Points To The One Who Helps The Most!

All of them sound good, i cannot think of anything more suitable...

Choloroplasts could be like solar panels of the cell

And i suppose cytoplasm could be like fields? Or just the land itself? or a lake/ocean which exists between all the different organelles, as the cytoplasm exists as a transport medium...

If The Government &Quot;Really&Quot; Wanted To Help The Environment?
Why Don'T They Spend Trillions Of Dollars On Solar Panels For Every Home And Business In America? Take Everything Off Of The Grid, Except The Essentials. I Mean, That Is, Considering &Quot;They&Quot; Are In Charge........!?!?!?!?!?!?

The technology exists to do things you would never think of, so there is an obvious effort to suppress the knowledge of what can REALLY be done TODAY.

Photovoltaic energy, as far as modern day solar panels go, are inefficient...converting between10-20% of the energy.
But there is technology to increase efficiency to 50% conversion and more.

What if we could build engines that burn salt water?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGg0ATfoBgo

This guy cured his own cancer with microwaves, and stumbled on a way to make salt water...burn.

If the government really wanted to help the environment, instead of spending trillions on inefficient solar panels, it could have invested more in the past in the kind of real technology that advanced humanity.

If we want a change now, then we should re-prioritize spending on such things as foreign aid, guarantees to the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, and excessive government bureaucracies.

Find a politician who will pledge to do this for America, and that would be REAL change.

Why Is Solar Energy A Renewable Resource And Also Some Advantages And Disadvantages Of Using Solar Energy?
Please Tell Me Some Disadvantages And Advantages Of Using Solar Energy. I Also Need To Know Why It Is A Renewable Resource. Can You Also Tell Me How Much Of Of Solar Energy Is Left And How Long It Will Last. Thank You So Much. [Tell Me Some Websites To Vist About This Information]

First, its all a guess but the sun will continue to shine for about another 2-4 billion years. So for all practical purposes, its eternal.
Solar energy depends on sunshine, one disadvantage is cloudy, overcast, rainy, snow etc. days. No sunshine, no real energy. Another difficulty is converting solar energy, solar panels generate direct current (DC) and this has to be converted to AC current to run appliances, etc. in your house. In order to store solar energy, batteries are required, so the DC current from the solar panels can charge the batteries, and then the DC current must be converted to AC.
Solar panels are not cheap but the price is coming down. They also don't last forever and can be damaged by hail, etc.
The good news is, solar energy is clean, not pollution except for the manufacture of the panels and for the moment, sunshine is still free.
