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 unit, cleaning clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous residents find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably decrease and even eliminate your electrical costs

Whether you're a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of money.

#2 Make a great return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect against increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, residential electricity costs have increased by approximately three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a business or house owner with fluctuating money flow, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and manage your costs.

#4 Boost your home value

Multiple studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Increase U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs 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 development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is an excellent method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are crucial elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that pick to run properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and enhancing business results.

#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 property owners pick to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- 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 energy business are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

With solar panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Connecting A 110W Solar Panel To My House Going To Be Beneficial?
I Found A Solar Panel On Ebay And Think Its Pretty Cheap, Typical Ebay. Only Thing Is I Have No Idea If There'S Any Point In It, Im Terrible With Electrics But Keen To Invest In Some Renewable, Green Technology. Heres Some Info If It Helps: # Maximum Power: 110 Watt Peak Power # Voltage At Maximum Power: ≫32 V. # Current At Maximum Power: 3.35 A. # Open Circuit Voltage: ≫40 V. # Short Circuit Current: 3.80 A. # Tolerance: -5%/+5%

BAD IDEA.

it's 32 volts.
you house is 110.
it's not going to work.
you'll burn it out.
but it probably won't catch fire. maybe.

i do find it interesting that it's 110 watts.
dollars to donuts that's intended to confuse people with 110 volts.
they're really different.
but obviously not everyone realizes that.

If You Have Solar Powered Home, What Do You Like And Dislike About It?

I have a passive solar home. We use the sun for a good percentage of our heating in winter. Heat from the sun enters our energy efficient windows and is absorbed by our concrete or tile floors. Heat is stored there throughout the day and is re-radiated back out at night after the sun goes down and we close the insulated window blinds. Sometimes I dislike the hard surface flooring, as far as standing on it for long periods of time, but we have other areas of our home that are carpet, wood, etc. - that offer more resilience and comfort on joints.

We also have a 4.4 kW Photovoltaic array on our roof for solar electricity and a solar hot water heating system as well. There is nothing that I don't like about our systems. They integrate seamlessly into our household with zero maintenance so far. We don't even know they are there unless we are giving a tour of our home and someone asks about them. We have a grid-tied, net-metered system so we supply the utility company with power on sunny days, and use theirs on cloudy days and at night. Our system is sized so that over the course of a year, we will achieve a "net-zero" energy usage - meaning that we will supply the utility with an equal amount of electricity that they provide to us over the course of a year. They credit us when we produce and charge us when we use, so essentially at the end of the year, we break even, except for some taxes and a small "meter reading" fee.

Our plan is to convert our small car to an electric car so that we can charge it off of our solar panels as well.

Having our own electric production system, or "distributed generation" as the power company calls it, means that the utility company's power plants can be freed up to produce more electricity for my non-solar neighbors without building more power plants. The more houses the utility company does not have to provide electricity for, the less frequent we have to worry about brown-outs, etc.

I guess the only dislike I would have, is that we aren't totally off-grid and completely independent from the utility company, but then again, we'd have to worry about batteries and more maintenance if that were the case, so we're pretty happy at this point! I'd be happy to answer any specific questions about our system! Thanks!

Items That Explain The Function Of These Organelles.?
I'M Doing A Project In Class And I'M Having A Huge Problem Trying To Connect The Two Together. For 10 Organelles I Need Something That Describes The Function Of What It Is. For Example.. The Cell Membrane, She Told Us To Use Either A Door Or A Fence. So Now I Need Some Of My Own And I'M Just Not Getting How They Relate. These Are The Ones I Have... Vesicle Storage Unit. Nucleus - A Brain, Obviously. Cytoplasm - Ice Cream Cone (Supports The Ice Cream) =) I Need More. Cilia Chloroplast Ribosome Cell Wall Plasma Membrane Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum Golgi Apparatus Pleaseeee Help Me.

cell wall, brick exterior of a house

plasma membrane, plastering of the house

cilia cleans up so id say vacuum (the one that have a rotating thing at the bottom wid bristles, or a brush)

chloroplast, solar energy panel thingys

ribosomes make proteins dat cause things to happen, so id compare it to a single machine in a factory which makes things or one item in the kitchen like a blender which makes things

RER is made of loads of ribosomes and is the whole network involved in making proteins so i wud compare it to a factory or the whole kitchen in relation to ribosomes alone

Golgi is like a packing plant, packaging things and transporting and sorting, sort of like royal mails networkl

hope dat helps =D

I Am Looking To Heat My Pool?
I Am Looking To Heat My Pool It Is A 10,000 Gal Fiberglass Outdoor In-Closed With Fine Screen So No Nat'S Get In . I Live In Ne Florida And Would Love To Use The Pool In Spring And Fall But The Water Temp Is To Cool . What Are The Cons And Pros With Water Solar Panels And A Heat Pump And Cost Up Front And In The Long Run Thank You For Info :)

I do not know about solar but can tell you about the heat pump. I have an 80,000 liter in ground pool and use a heat pump to heat it. I live on the east coast of Vancouver island in British Columbia. lt is very reasonable to heat. The reason I went with the heat pump was reliability and long term cost effectiveness. It might be a better choice as it is hotter down there to use solar. The other thing I did not like about solar was having to have piping running all up the side of my house onto the roof were the solar panels would of been.
Hope this helps some.
cheers
