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 daily life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, many home owners discover that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.

Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably minimize or even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar 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 consume, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs savings, the average American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 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 capability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy rates have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with ever-changing money flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Increase your house value

Numerous research studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up 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 a crucial element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price variations in international energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated 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 considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a terrific method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical property solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four tons 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 components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that pick to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and improving organisation results.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1

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

Numerous homeowners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy companies are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Does Japan Rely On Nuclear Energy So Much - What About Hydro,Solar,Wind Etc?Are They Widely Used In Japan?
I Know Japan Doesn'T Have Very Many Natural Resources In The Way Of Gas, Oil Etc But What About The Above Mentioned Options Such As Huge Wind Turbine &Quot;Farms&Quot;, Solar Energy, Hydroelectric Energy? No Offence But Isn'T It Rather Silly To Build Nuclear Reactors In Such An Earthquake Prone Area? Here In Ireland We Don'T Use Nuclear Energy And We Certainly Don'T Use Enough Sustainable Energy, I'M Not Totally Opposed To Nuclear But If We Did Ever Decide To Go That Way At Least We'Re Not In An Earthquake Prone Zone. It'S Terrible What Happened In Japan And It'S Terrible What Could Yet Happen Due To Radiation But Surely That Could Have Been Foreseen As Japan Is In An Earthquake Zone? Thanks.

Solar water heaters are popular in Japan. There are wind turbines, and hydro dams on every river worth damming. Geothermal and tidal have their projects as well. However solar obviously doesn't work at night, and it isn't always windy. A reactor turns out electricity 24/7, rain or shine. Therefore wind turbines, etc. can add electricity to a grid, but not anchor it. No matter where they are installed wind turbines are mostly just for show, they need %100 backup from another source of energy. Solar water heaters on the other hand can heat up a tank of water every day and it stays warm overnight. I really doubt that Japan will turn away from nuclear due to the incident at Fukushima #1, which is 40 years old. Therefore the argument will be that it is time to construct a new generation of safer reactors that incorporate the lessons learned from this incident.

Which Energy Carrier Is The Future And Why?
1. Hydrogen 2. Electricity

The best energy is solar energy. It is limitless (until sun explodes in a couple million years). Big bad companies however prefer you use Hydrogen because it's not free like the Sun.

How Does Energy Affect The Economy As A Whole?
All Energies. Ex. Solar, Wind, Nuclear, Oil, Fossil Fuels, Biofuel, Etc.

Solar, wind, and biofuels have a very very marginal effect, because the vast majority of electrical energy is not produced from them.

Nuclear is a big one. A very good chunk of U.S. electricity is produced via this source, almost 1/5, in fact.

Fossil fuels are the biggest. Oil, coal, and natural gas power many many homes and businesses. I would guess roughly 2/3 of our electrical energy comes from these sources.

It should be obvious how gasoline and diesel and other fuels affect the economy. If you don't believe in their impact on something such as inflation, explain why "core" inflation studies exist.

What Is A Solar Hub?
