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 resident to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners find that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly reduce and even eliminate your electrical expenses

Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can make up a large portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of loan.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy prices have gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or property owner with changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your expenses.

#4 Increase your residential or commercial property value

Multiple studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. 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, demand for properties equipped 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 crucial part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price fluctuations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a fantastic method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#8 Show your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are very important parts of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer buying choices, developing goodwill and improving service outcomes.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Many house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy business are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Will A Solar Panel Ever Pay For It Self In Electrical Savings, At Market Prices? ?
I Bought A Solar Panel, It Cost About 400 Dollars , When The Sun Is Shining It Makes About, 50 Watts , Then I Have To Buy The Inverter And The Batteries , At Market Prices, Will It Ever Pay For Itself? They Say It Will Last About 10 Years. And How About A Windmill ?

You need in average 30 years to recover the investment of a solar energy system, this makes it economical unfeasible in most cases.The solar system will not probably last that either.

The only case where solar energy is economical feasible is where you do not have access to the grid, e.g. remote location.

In some countries where government wants to promote a green politics, the hardware is provided a low cost (green benefit), this makes it economical feasible for the final user.

Another way to make it economical feasible is to start from scratch thinking solar e.g. before building your house. If you buy and build everything; appliances, walls, heat systems and so on, thinking in how to do the best use of solar energy, thus you can get a nearly economical feasible system.

Can I Connect My Pool Pump To A Solar Panel?
What Size Would The Panel Be/ I Live In The Caribbean So Plenty Of Sun! Http://Www.Jandy.Com/Html/Products/Heatpumps/Ae2500.Php I Only Have One Heater

I don't need to tell you that electricity is extremely expensive in the Caribbean, and the sun is plentiful, so solar may be a cost effective solution for you. I have several customers in the islands who have solar pool pumping and solar pool heating.

You have a couple of options. If you already have a pump, you could find out how many watt hours (wh) it uses a day. To do that, figure out how many watts the pump uses, and how many hours a day it is on. Watts times hours equals watt hours, and that is how the electric companies charge us, how many wh, or kwh (thousand watt hours) a month. (1 horsepower is equal to about 750W, running for 6 hours would be 3900 wh, or 3.9kwh). Once you know how much power your pump uses, you can install enough solar panels and an inverter to generate that amount of power, thus offsetting what it uses.

Another option is to replace your existing pump with a more efficient solar powered pool pump. It would only run when the sun is shining, but that's pretty much when your existing pump runs too. Depending on the size of your pool, the whole package with pump and solar panels is about $5000. Do the math to see how much you are paying for electricity now, and see if it is worth it. http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Poo...

Your question also said you are using a heater. You can reduce or eliminate that need with solar pool heating. The pump pumps the water from the pool through the collectors, generally installed on your roof, and then back into the pool. The sun heats the water as it is traveling along your roof, just like leaving a hose out in the sun. You size the system based on the square feet of pool area. http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Poo...

Why Are Things Like Solar Panels And Geothermal Energy Sources So Expensive?
And Is There Anything That Can Be Done To Bring The Cost Down?

Solar will be cheaper when new technology replaces older, more expensive ones. Within 5 years, there will be no comparison, and fossil fuel will be costlier than solar.
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-05-26...

How Many 80W Can Charge 4And2 Batteries?
How Many 80W Solar Panel Can Charge 2 And 4 Batteries In 8 Hours

It depends on the size of the batteries. 80 watts is a lot of power for a solar cell. First, make sure it's in fact an 80 watt panel. At 12 volts, 80 watts means over 6 amps or 6000 mA. This will charge about 6 AA cells in 1 hour if connected to the correct charging circuit or 48 AA cells in 8 hours. If you're talking about a car batteries, you would charge 1 car battery to a usable point in 8 hours.

Why Do People Say Solar Panels Are Too Expensive When In Ca They Lease/Install At Current Electric Bill Rate?
If Your Electric Bill Is $200. You Can Lease A Solar Pv System In Ca, And Pay $200. For 20 Years. No Raising Of Rates!!! No C02 Or Pollution To Offset. The Panels Are Warranted For 25 Years. Yet, So Many Here Buy Into The Ignorant Idea, Solar Is Not Viable, It'S Too Far Off, Why Is That? Glen Beck Said So? Check Rates In Your Area. 21 States Have Incentives. If Oil And Defense Get Corporate Welfare Solar Incentives Are Fair. The Main Components Are Silicon (Same As Computer Chips), Metal And Glass. It'S A No Brainer. The Ones Trying You To Convince You It'S Not Realistic Are Petroleum Companies, Ever Wonder Why? Database Of State Incentives For Renewable Energy

That is all relatively new many people are not aware of the incentives.
