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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, lots of homeowners find that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically decrease or perhaps remove your electrical costs

Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of cash.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense cost 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 Secure against increasing energy costs

One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy rates have gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure against unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a business or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your home value

Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need 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 an essential part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price changes in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is a terrific method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are necessary parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that choose to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.

#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 money down.

Lots of property owners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely 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 utility companies are notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Which, Do You Feel Are Viable Energy Sources For The Future? Why?

solar energy-if we were could harvest all of the suns solar energy for one minute, we could power the entire world for a day. The shimizu corporation in japan wants to build solar panels on the moon which could harness more of the suns energy than solar panels on earth
nuclear fusion-provides can produce large amounts of energy for low costs and unlike nuclear fission, does not produce nuclear waste. ITER is an international collaboration between multiple countries to produce the first practical fusion reactor. construction has already started
nuclear fission-really cheap energy and reliable. the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Nuclear Power Plant in japan is the largest reactor in the world
hydroelectric- can harness the power of water, produces little waste products. the three gorges dam in china is the largest in the world with a 20300 MW capacity

Question About Solar Panels?
How Much Do Solar Panels For Homes Cost? How Many Would You Need To Power The Average Two-Story House?

Solar Panels cost between $9-11 on Average per watt. The Average home uses 930 Watts per hour.

Most homes aren't fully solar power, the ones that are run in economy mode - no AC or other hi-power electronics.

Your other costs are installation to the power grid, batteries, inverters.

Approximately $20k and will pay itself off in 8 years and last 20-25 years.

Is This The Reason Why Solar Panels Are Energy Efficient?
Solar Panels In Houses Will Definitely Reduce Energy Usage As It Does Not Involve Ongoing Dependence On Non-Renewable Energy Sources Such As Coal-Burning Power Plants. These Coal Power Plants Generate Tremendous Amounts Of Electricity Through The Burning Of Coal Though It Heavily Pollutes The Environment. Solar Panels Are A Much Cleaner Renewable Alternative As It Is Utilises The Sun’S Energy And Converts It Into Electricity. The Great Thing About Solar Panels Is That When Used With Conventional Electricity It Reduces Your Electricity Bill Hugely And When Used Alone You Have No Electricity Bill To Pay As It Using The Sun’S Free Energy. It Can Also Be Used For Generating Hot Water. Ps-I Wrote It By Myself

The use of photovoltaic technology for producing power is environmentally friendly. Is uses naturally occurring sunlight as its source and gives off no emissions. It doesn’t pollute the air by releasing carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide, sulfur dioxide or mercury into the atmosphere like many traditional forms of power generation. The passive energy created is both economical and abundant.

Why Is Www.Sunesolar.Com So Much Cheaper Then Other Solar Panel Places?
Seems Like No Matter Where I Look Everywhere Is More Expensive For Certain Panels And Products How Do They Manage To Sell Them So Cheap Are They Really Factory Direct Or Wholesale Or Do There Products Come Second Hand?

well, let's look. the first few i looked at were too small to do anything. around the 2nd page i found the first that would be somewhat viable candidates for any real use. for example:

<<Sunsei SE-16000 260-Watt 16.5-Volt Solar Panel $1,999.99>>

keep in mind, an average house uses 1-2-3 kw.
solar panels only generate significantly 6 hours a day, less in the winter.
so you'll need 20-40-60 of these to power a house.
for 40, that's $80,000.
is that the "cheap" you were talking about?

and, you haven't gotten into the electronics, and cost thereof, to hook up your panels to the utility grid so you can use their electricity at night.

oh, btw, you'll need to change 16.5 volts into 110, so you'll need 7 in series to get 115 volts, which, if you're using them at home is what you want. and i'm not sure how well they work when connected in series like that. it's certainly not guaranteed.

If You Live In An Existing Or Newly Built 3-Bedroom House In The Midwest, Can You Install Solar Panels On The ?
Roof To Generate Enough Electricity For The Home Applicances And To Heat The House ? How Much Does It Cost To Install Solar Panels For A 3-Bedroom House?

To supply your appliances, almost certainly.

To heat and cool your house would probably take more energy than solar panels could effectively provide, unless your your house is freakishly insulated, like buried underground one story, no windows, and with foot-thick insulation all around.

How much it costs, and therefore, how cost-effective solar electricity will be depends on the site of your house. If you're in Texas, that's very different from Michigan. You can look up your area on this map:

http://rredc.nrel.gov/solar/old_data/nsr...

to find average hours of sun for your area.

Also, you would ideally have a south-facing roof, tilted at the angle of your latitude, and no trees, buildings, or other obstructions to cast shadows on your roof for most of the day.

A typical net cost would be $10,000 - $25,000, for a house that is already conservative on energy.

The best way to find out how much it really costs, and whether your house is well suited for solar electric, is to contact a professional solar installer in your area. They all give free quotes, and you can always say no. The worst that happens is you get an education on solar panels from it.

We put panels on our house. I can send you more info if you email me.
