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 property owner to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, watching 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 advantages of solar power are significant, numerous property owners find that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce and even remove your electrical expenses

Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#2 Make a great 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 conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous ten years, property electricity prices have gone up by an average of three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a business or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your costs.

#4 Increase your residential or commercial property worth

Several studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth 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 United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is an excellent method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that pick to run responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The utility companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and basic math, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Is It Important For A Country To Have A Many Energy Resources?
Why Is It Important For A Country To Have A Many Energy Resources?

Because, not all sources of energy are easily available to every region of the Earth.

Gasoline or diesel fuel requires costly transport with a road system capable of allowing transport.

Natural gas may require miles of high-pressure lines for distribution.

Solar energy may not be available every day of the year and the electricity it can currently provide may not be enough to power a large city.

A great deal of electricity production in the United States is derived from burning coal. If the coal reserves are soon depleted a national energy crisis may force the government to invest in other sources to fund our growing energy demands such as solar or biofuels.

Electrical grids may suffer from transient blackouts and brownouts, often due to weather damage. During certain extreme space weather events solar wind can interfere with transmissions.

Electrical grids also have a predefined carrying capacity or load that cannot safely be exceeded. When power requirements exceed what's available, failures are inevitable. To prevent problems, power is then rationed.

Industrialised countries such as Canada, the US, and Australia are among the highest per capita consumers of electricity in the world, which is possible thanks to a widespread electrical distribution network. The US grid is one of the most advanced, although infrastructure maintenance is becoming a problem.

This electrical grid has taken years to develop along with billions of dollars in long term investment and annual maintenance. A poor nation may be unable to afford such a costly network.

The need for a variety of sources a citizen of any country can access at any moment makes sense in order to conserve resources and cost.

With enough economic resources available to every country of the world we may be able to distribute our energy technology and provide several sources of energy so that we may be able to tap into the most readily available source at the least expensive coast at the moment we need it.

Hope this helps.

Why Do We Need Sustainable Sources Of Energy For The Future?
I'M Doing A Project But I Cant Find The Answer. Can You Help ? Alot Of Detail Would Be Great. Thanks

We need sustainable sources of energy for the future because we are using up our natural resources i.e. oil faster than the planet can replenish them. That means we will eventually run out of oil. It does not mean that no more oil will ever be created, it just means that it will take a very, very long time to happen and we will be hundreds upon millions of years without it. We need another form of energy--nuclear power is the most viable option right now, but it is dangerous and slightly unstable. Wind, hydroelectric, and solar power will always be renewable but the means by which we harvest them don't allow us to "extract" enough power. We need sustainable sources of energy because without them, we will run out of all other means of energy, and won't be able to use electricity anymore. This means no artificial heat or cooler, efficient travel, modern day medical help, etc.

Solar Energy?
What Are Disadvantages Of Using It? Consequences?

Solar energy equipment is somewhat expensive, and its production is intermittent, but solar is a great supplemental source, and added to other things like hydro wind and such, will ease our consumption of fossil fuel. As oil prices go up solar becomes a better alternative.

How Does Japan's Cultural Attitudes Affect The Environment?
Any Kind Of Source Would Be Helpful!

Japan; the country with technology but no resource what so ever.

They've suffered this issue for a century, and hence they have came up with many energy conservation technologies (e.g. fuel efficient motor vehicles & latest solar pannels), which have made some contributions to slow down the global warming, etc. One of the reasons why the previous protocols to the international framework convention on climate change was signed in Kyoto.

I'm glad to be in Australia though. Even though it's going up in price every year, I can use as much electricity as I like and still doesn't cost me anything compared to in Japan - we just have to burn more coal & natural gas :P

How Is Ocean Energy Stored?
I Need It For My Hw. Pls Reply Thanks.

Ocean energy is related to the movement of water. The energy is stored in waves of all forms and sizes, ocean currents warm and cold, tides rising and falling and tides moving up and down river courses. Additionally, remember that the ocean stores a tremendous amount of heat due to solar radiation.
