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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while reducing 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 substantial, lots of home owners discover that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses

Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy rates have actually increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or house owner with fluctuating money flow, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential 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 fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy

According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country.

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

Numerous house owners choose to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

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

The energy business are infamous for their varying and unreliable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and basic math, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Energy Limitations?
I Was Watching A Television Program About A Couple Who Lived Off The Grid, Powering Their Home With Solar Energy. The Program Mentioned That They Couldn'T Use A Toaster, Microwave, Or Hair Dryer But Didn'T Explain Why That Was The Case. Can You Explain This To Me? I Want To Convert To All Solar Eventually But I Can'T Imagine Not Being Able To Use The Microwave.

You can power any appliance with solar power, but their setup may not have been able to do so.

At a guess, the people who you saw on TV had a setup which provided DC (direct current) and were using dedicated appliances and were simply unable to buy a DC microwave.

Hairdryers are very energy hungry (they use around 2kW - or enough to power round 75 energy efficient lightbulbs) so it may just not be practical to use a hairdryer.

If you get around to going solar, you can get a system which will run on AC (like most of your existing appliances use), but you will probably end up paying more for it.

Which Type Of Energy Is The Best?
Solar Tidal Nuclear Geothermal Wind Fossil Fuel

the best of THOSE would be solar, tidal, geothermal, and wind. renewable energies produce zero waste and dont consume any resources (other than to build the infrastructure, which will provide energy for years and years).

the problem with these types of energy is that they take a huge amount of space and are less efficient than, say, burning oil. they are also expensive to implement and lobbyists are hard at work to prevent their progress and maintain our dependence on oil.

How Much Energy Is Required To Create A 1 Kilo Watt Solar Panel.?
Equations &Amp; Breakdowns Appreciated.

There are different kinds of solar panels available in the market today.

There are monocrystalline silicon solar PVs. These are the most efficient ones easily recognizable because of its uniform or even coloring. However, these are the most expensive ones.

Another option are the polycrystalline solar panels. They are friendlier on the pocket but are just about 13 to 16% efficient.

There are also thin-film solar panels, which are the least efficient.

Which Are The Best Renewable Energy Companies In The Us?

Coop American lists many renewable energy companies in their "Green Pages" (Ref 1).

One that develops wind energy is "Native Energy":

Another that sells home energy and solar systems is Sierra Solar Systems:

You might want to check the Green Pages listings for something that is local to you or matches the particular kind of renewable energy that you are interested in.

How Much Energy Is Made For A Year From Solar Energy?
Need Help For Project!!!

Plants have stored the sun's for millions of years.The plants are the largest solar collector there is. The plants recycle the CO2 into O2 and the plants keep the C. Later the oil in the plants breaks down into petroleum.
