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 everyday life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of residents discover that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Dramatically minimize and even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a large part of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of money.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past ten years, domestic electrical power costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or homeowner with changing capital, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your expenses.

#4 Boost your house worth

Several research studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties 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 key component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall 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 jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Safeguard the environment

Solar is a great method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social duty are very important parts of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that choose to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and improving organisation results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many homeowners pick to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy companies are infamous for their varying and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate just how much electricity will be created, and most importantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Would Anyone Say Solar Pv Isn'T Cost Effective When In Ca You Can Lease For The Current Cost Of Your Bill?
Are People Seriously Misinformed About Solar Pv And Small Residential Wind Turbines? Have You Ever Gotten Any Estimates? In 21 States The Power Company Buys Your Power, And Supplies You Power At Night. As Your Bill Goes Up You Save. How Is That Not Cost Effective. Why Do People Cling To Misinformation And Refuse To Accept Renewable Energy And Toss Off The Yolk Of Oil, Step By Step?

Solar is an excellent option in California. But California gets a great deal of sun.

In Pacific Northwest, though, it will take many, many years for a homeowner to recover the cost of solar panels in energy savings. And likewise, in the most populous areas of the country, it isn't windy enough for people to recover the cost of wind turbines in a reasonable amount of time. And really, by the time people recover the cost, the equipment will need to be replaced.

I think that large-scale renewable energy is the solution, not small-scale. Building large solar plants in the southwest to convert water into hydrogen could fuel all of our cars. Building wind turbines off-shore could fuel all our homes. But power companies are going to be needed to do those things.

they will, today, probobly cost more than to justify the investment. pay back is estimated to about 30 years. But when solar panels start getting massproduced prizes will drop like they did on LCD and plasma TV's last couple of years. If you produce more solar power than you use yourself, you just supply it to the network and the law says power company have to credit you the same rate.

I Want To Do A Little Project This Year, And That Is To Make Solar Panels Of My Own. I Want To See The Pros And Cons Of How Effective Solar Panels Are. Also What Are Good Websites Where I May Obtain More Information On Blueprints Of How They Are Made.

Unfortunately, if you want to do a fair test, it's not a little project. The best cost savings by solar is probably water heating. There will be very little cost difference between a small system and one to cover your whole house, if you do things right.

For solar electric, the kind of system that saves money (if at all, depending on your location) is grid-tied, that is, with no batteries. That will require a permit and inspection, and must have panels with a safety certification - in other words, you can't hook up homemade panels.

You could build a panel out of individual solar cells you buy, then connect it to a battery. That would be fun and illustrate the principle, but don't expect it to be cost-effective at all.

How To Build A Solar Panel?
How To Build A Solar Panel

Search Yahoo Answers or the internet first, this question is common.

It is possible to build a solar thermal panel, to heat either water or air. You can just search YouTube to see how people did it. Try searching "solar water heater".

If you build a photovoltaic (solar electric) panel on your own, it will only be good for demonstration purposes. The homemade type I've seen produces only microamps of current - not even enough to run an iPod. Be wary of sites advertise you can make your own panel for less than $200 (or some figure), and try to sell you the plans. This is the same information that is posed on other sites for free.
