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, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of residents discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Drastically reduce or even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large portion of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.

#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs

Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past ten years, property electricity rates have gone up by an average of three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar also assists you much better projection and handle your expenditures.

#4 Boost your house value

Several research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy independence

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

#7 Secure the environment

Solar is an excellent method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will eliminate three to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability

Sustainability and business social obligation are crucial components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and enhancing service results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

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

Lots of house owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar 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 utility companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Can Solar Panels Be Installed On The &Quot;Peak&Quot; Of A Roof?
If The Sides Of My Roof Run South To North, (Sides Facing East, West) And Therefore I Don'T Have Any Side That Are Facing South.....Can I Still Have Solar Panels Installed Somehow? And Can They Be Installed On The Peak Of The Roof?

South facing is the preferred way to place them to get the most sunlight energy.

The normal pannels are approxiamately 4' x 2'. And can be installed almost anywhere on the roof.

The main problem is to limit wind energy off of it.

There is two wind problems wind load (the force exerted on the roof if it gets close to cruching the roof or exceeds it in windy areas). The other if to much wind gets under the panels they will try to lift off like a kite.

First you need a solar evaluation to see where is the best place to place the solar panels based on shading from trees, land scaping, or tall buildings etc.... Shading can cause the solar panel to loose voltage, and get to zero voltage if shaded enough.

Then you need to check with your state and the federal government for financial help. They can help provide up to 30% or in tax incentives.

What Is The Power Of A Solar Panel Measured In (Units). And How Many Units To Heat 1 Cu M By 1 Degree F?
We Need To Heat A Communal Swimming Pool In Spain By A Couple Of Degrees. To This End We Need To Know Which Is The Best 'Value For Money' Product, I.E. Effective Heating Against Cost.

I don't have a technical answer, but know that for our community pool in California, we have solar panels that cover the entire roof of the clubhouse - about twice the surface area of the pool. This could be heating water for showers, too, though - I'm not sure.

What Are Solar Panels?

A solar panel is a device that collects and converts solar energy into electricity or heat which can be used by (for example) nearby buildings. Solar photovoltaic panels can be made so that the sun's energy excites the atoms in a silicon layer between two protector panels. Electrons from these excited atoms form an electric current, which can be used by external devices. Solar panels were in use over one hundred years ago for water heating in homes. Solar panels can also be made with a specially shaped mirror that concentrates light onto a tube of oil. The oil then heats up, and travels through a vat of water, instantly boiling it. The steam created turns a turbine for power.

The basic element of solar panels is pure silicon. When stripped of impurities, silicon makes an ideal neutral platform for transmission of electrons. In silicon’s natural state, it carries four electrons, but has room for eight. Therefore silicon has room for four more electrons. If a silicon atom comes in contact with another silicon atom, each receives the other atom's four electrons. Eight electrons satisfy the atoms' needs, this creates a strong bond, but there is no positive or negative charge. Silicon atoms combine for years to produce a large piece of pure silicon. This material is used on the plates of solar panels. Combining silicon with other elements that have a positive or negative charge can also create solar panels.

What Are Solar Panels Made Of?
(For A Project) I Know They Are Made Of Silicon, But I Want To Everything They Are Made Of. Ex Metal (What Kind) Please Tell Me Everything Used From Their Production To The Finished Project Thank You

Well i am not sure but to my knowledge all i know is that the purpose is to save solar cells which are later created into energy
Solar energy is generated from solar panels. Solar panels are slabs of semi-conductor metal. Technically speaking, they are a slab of silicon semi-conductor doped or added with impurities to make it a better conductor. Solar panels could also be made of Gallium Arsenide which is a semi-conductor metal exclusively used in photo-voltaic cells.
The silicon slabs are polished and glossed before doping. After processing, for protection, a thin glass layer is embossed on the solar cells slab. Silicon also is shiny and reflects about 35% of sunlight. Hence, an anti-reflective coating is usually applied over the slabs to reduce the amount of sunlight lost. Amorphous silicon solar panels are different from the traditional ones made from silicon slabs. Amorphous silicon solar cells are thinner and more efficient that the silicon ones and also the materials cost of this variety is far lesser than the traditional. Amorphous silicon slabs are developed with superior processes which makes them less susceptible to breakage during transportation. This makes them a more viable investment when it comes to buying solar panels.

How Do Solar Panels Help Is To Use Less Fossil Fuels?
Stuck On My Homework?, Please Help!

There are 2 types of solar panels, one is used for heating water the other for producing electricity.

In both cases the use of solar panels allows us to harness the power from the sun and use the energy where otherwise we would be using electricity from a mains source. this electricity coming from a power station often uses Coal, Oil or natural gas to power it, Therefore by using solar energy we reduce the amount of fossil fuel we use.

Solar cells can also be used to power other things and work is going on to try and find an efficient solar power vehicle, this would reduce our use of oil in the form of petrol and diesel.

Solar panels can be large or small, portable ones are available for charging Ipods, mobile phones etc. all reducing our dependence on fossil fuels further.
