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 clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous home owners discover that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power rates have gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a business or house owner with changing money flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your house value

Multiple research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values 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 property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes 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 key part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your local economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs 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 growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common property solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Many house owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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 notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Good Essay Topic For Solar Energy?
I Am Writing A Research Essay About The Cost/Benefits Of Solar Energy. Any Ideas How I Can Arrange This? What To Include? Thanks

Maybe you could run with the fact that our entire planet runs on solar energy already - it provides us heat and light, grows our crops with photosynthesis, causes evaporation, clouds and rain and is therefore also responsible for giving us water. It even gave us oil, coal and gas because the dinosaurs wouldn't have been here and the ancient trees wouldn't have grown if the sun wasn't shining! So there's a few benefits. Now for the costs ....

What Is Global Warming?

Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of the Earth's near-surface air and oceans since the mid-20th century and its projected continuation. Global surface temperature increased 0.74 ± 0.18 °C (1.33 ± 0.32 °F) during the last century. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concludes that increasing greenhouse gas concentrations resulting from human activity such as fossil fuel burning and deforestation are responsible for most of the observed temperature increase since the middle of the 20th centur The IPCC also concludes that natural phenomena such as solar variation and volcanoes produced most of the warming from pre-industrial times to 1950 and had a small cooling effect afterward. These basic conclusions have been endorsed by more than 45 scientific societies and academies of science,including all of the national academies of science of the major industrialized countries.

Climate model projections summarized in the latest IPCC report indicate that the global surface temperature will probably rise a further 1.1 to 6.4 °C (2.0 to 11.5 °F) during the twenty-first century. The uncertainty in this estimate arises from the use of models with differing sensitivity to greenhouse gas concentrations and the use of differing estimates of future greenhouse gas emissions. Some other uncertainties include how warming and related changes will vary from region to region around the globe. Most studies focus on the period up to the year 2100. However, warming is expected to continue beyond 2100 even if emissions stop, because of the large heat capacity of the oceans and the long lifetime of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Increasing global temperature will cause sea levels to rise and will change the amount and pattern of precipitation, probably including expansion of subtropical deserts. The continuing retreat of glaciers, permafrost and sea ice is expected, with the Arctic region being particularly affected. Other likely effects include shrinkage of the Amazon rainforest and Boreal forests, increases in the intensity of extreme weather events, species extinctions, and changes in agricultural yields.

Political and public debate continues regarding what actions (if any) to take in response to global warming. The available options are mitigation to reduce further emissions; adaptation to reduce the damage caused by warming; and, more speculatively, geoengineering to reverse global warming. Most national governments have signed and ratified the Kyoto Protocol aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Please Help Me! I Don'T Understand The Question. Compare And Contrast Passive Solar Heating Uses To...?
Compare And Contrast Passive Solar Heating Uses To Active Solar System Applications. Please, I Don'T Understand The Question And I'M So Confused. I Need An Answer By The End Of September.

Passive solar heating is what happens when you let sun shine through your window and heat your home. You could place a large stone or concrete wall painted black and placed inside a room with windows facing the sun. During the day, the sun heats the wall. At night you use the stored heat to warm your home. These are examples of "passive" solar heating, i.e., no active elements.

If you place solar panels on your roof to convert solar energy directly to electrical energy and then use the electricity to run a heater. The solar panel is an "Active device"

Who Leads The World In Solar Powered Energy?

the US has the upper hand in design and development, but due to government subsidies, European countries like Germany have much higher uses of solar power. However, most solar panels today are manufactured in china. The irony is that solar panels require ALOT of energy during the manufacturing process and with china subsidizing energy production by conventional methods like coal, it is much more cost effective to make them there. On think to consider when BHO is taking about "green jobs", as they will not be in the US.
